The HD449 are a pretty impressive set of headphones. They’re pretty well detailed in terms of performance and the sound tone, although a little bright makes them fun to listen to. The brightness comes from the slightly emphasized highs that make heavy distortion music and electronics related genres of music sound good. The bass is well detailed, but just not heavy. So, there’s no deep, rich sounding bass, but a layer that makes its presence known and is sufficient for most genres of music.
Soft earpads, but they're likely to lose their look
Heavy dubstep and techno music doesn’t sound as impressive. Sound separation is pretty decent and the sound stagings also easy. The closed design of the HD449 make them good for noise isolation. The isolation works well even without any music playing. You aren’t completely isolated from the surroundings, but the noise levels do drop. The sound and tone of the HD449 isn’t tiring - you won’t complain of headache and dizziness after long hours of listening, at least we didn’t.
There is no shortage of headphones in the market today and it’s hard to find a good performing one at an affordable price. The HD449 are actually a very decent set of headphones. Sure, they aren’t built with the best quality and most exotic materials, but they aren’t trying to be fancy.
Good performance, lightweight and good VFM!
They perform well and are priced at just Rs.4,990, which is very close in price to the U.S market. Most headphone enthusiasts import headphones and you pay a premium for it. Even value products end up being a little expensive. The HD449 are available in the Indian market and they’re a very good solution, if you’re into music, games and/or movies.
