Overview

Our take on the Sennheiser HD 4.20s

I think the Sennheiser HD 4.20s offer some of the best value in over-ear headphones. For less than $100, you get a set of slick, no-nonsense 'phones with real pedigree. Sennheiser has been one of (if not the) leading name in headphones for decades. I got a brief listening session and can tell you: if good sound is what you're looking for in headphones, you can't do much better at this price.

Good for Price - Over Ear Cushion Falls Off

These are actually a very good headphone for the money. My only complaint is that the over ear cushions come off very easily and are kind of difficult to put back on.

Great sound, very comfortable fit for over-the-ear headphones. I had to hunt for a case to put it in though. Also, still not sure if I'll need an adaptor (not provided) for flights.

Clear and strong sound

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am a product loyalist and the Sennheiser product has never let me down. For the price, this model provided me with good clear sound. The bass was clear throughout all the various music genres I listen to. The highs were just clear enough not to distort any midrange. They look durable and fold up with ease. I have not used the phone volume feature as of yet. The comfort is excellent. It would be nice if the included a fabric type carrying case.

Pros: Comfort Bass Price

Cons: None
