Description and Review

Sennheiser are pioneers in the headphone industry, releasing a vast product like of headphones every year, ranging from high-end studio monitors to affordable in-ear headphones. With the Sennheiser HD 451, the company has attempted to port the brilliant sound of their over-ear headphones, to a low-end over-ear pair of headphones. And its safe to say that they have managed to do that successfully, albeit with a few drawbacks in design.

The Sennheiser HD 451 may look like a pair of open-back headphones, but they are actually closed in order to isolate any background sound. However, the velour pads leak some sound, which will be more of a hindrance to the people around you than yourself. Sounds quality is remarkable for the price, but it will take a burn-in period for the headphones to reach their maximum potential.

The problems start cropping up in the build quality and design of the Sennheiser HD 451. The headphones are very light and comfortable; however, this is due to the extensive plastic use in the body, which tends to give a cheap feel to the headphones. The interchangeable cables are particularly useful and are made to endure stress and harsh conditions. The overall look of the headphones is very understated and will appeal to a wide audience.

Excellent!

For a price of under Rs. 5000, the Sennheiser HD 451 is a steal. This under-appreciated headphone is perfect for someone who are buying their first pair of over the ear headphones and want professional sound at a low price.
