Sometime ago i purchased a pair of Sennheiser HD418’s and first impressions leave lasting memories and thoughts about a product, and the first impression on these are they are an absolutely great pair of headphones with exceptional sound quality, and the most comfortable pair of headphones I have ever used. These are still the Headphones i continue to use for everything to this day!
The headphones have a sleek black and white design pattern on the ear cups that complement the Black frame exceptionally, with what is a somewhat average length cable for a pair of headphones (1.4m) It means the HD 418 headphones are still perfect for those who wish to listen to music while walking or Computer gamers who can plug it into their tower/laptop nearby.
These headphones have a lightweight design which is a very good thing when it comes to comfort and long term use such as listening to music or watching movies and gaming. The under padding that rests on your head is not overly thick but just right, the ear cups have a material padding which is nice and soft, and features a slight swivel for more comfort and a better feel on the side of your head, while the lightweight of the headphones don’t produce the discomfort some headphones do due to the weight.
The sound that comes out these these headphones amaze me, while gaming and viewing movies you can hear the clear sound effects with such clarity while at the same time feel the bass of explosions and such, music lovers will enjoy these due to the sound range you can reach, I have put these to the test with music by playing loud music with bass, with bass increased exponentially on the amplifier, to listening to classical piano and everything in between with varying levels of bass and have not been disappointed.

For a pair of stereo headphones, you do not need to look any further than the Sennheiser HD 418, These headphones are amazing quality, durable, and unbelievably comfortable, maybe an inline sound control would be useful but it’s not an issue, these headphones have not disappointed me whatsoever and I’m sure they won’t disappoint you, so when you need a new pair, I strongly suggest you get these.
