    Great value headphones, just be aware the controls are very fiddly and annoying, and there is a low hiss at low volume. NC is okay, the pads of the 4.40 are the same and offer great isolation without NC.

    I got these for free using my wiles, and having used them for about six months would definitely buy them at this price. Noise cancelling is pretty good, they're super comfortable and the battery life is pretty good. Now that I'm not commuting I wear these for about half an hour while walking the dog each morning and I feel like I never need to charge them.

    @OnlinePred is right though, the controls are fiddly, they have every type of button on them for some reason. Hiss is only really noticeable if you have them on and aren't listening to anything.

      I also forgot to mention how wide the bands are hey, they stick out a lot, if someone was worried about how it looks that is. I don't care.

    So if this is the price everywhere, how is this a bargain?

      Everyone matching everyone, usual price is around $250

      It's like Sony has a sale and all retailers match it. Normal price is over $250. You have a choice of retailers price matching each other and you can choose which ever suits you.

      Some may have gift cards, vouchers, and qff points.

      As I highlighted, if Amazon price match, it would be awesome.

        Fair enough. I wonder why I got negged for asking the question. Neggers are sometimes peculiar.

    I've had these headphones before, but I bought them of the sennheiser refurbished outlet from a ozbargain deal last year.
    The sale seems to still be on:
    https://en-au.shop.sennheiser.com/index.php/checkout/cart/ the headphones are $149
    You can also browse some of their more quality headphones for around the same price.
    Regardless, I was and still am a fan of these headphones. Bought them refurbed and cant tell the difference between it and brand new.

    How do these compare to the Ozbargain favourites (the Sony 1000MX3)?

    I have these headphones, really good bass and treble. You can usually get the full advantage of the headphone using your phone's equlizer or your computer's sound fx setting adjustments. My laptop has a specific Realtek Audio Digital Input jack and it sounds great on the headphones.

    You can also connect using NFC or just good old bluetooth. Tells you when it's dying and when it's charged (usually says 11 hours of playtime when it's fully charged).

    As for Noice-Cancelling……….not that great. It does some Noice Cancelling but not good as the Bose Quiet Comfort ones. For a price like this though it's worth it.

    Has controls (volume up/down, next/previous or call end buttons) if you're using bluetooth. The bad thing about this headphone is that you can't charge and play via bluetooth at the same time (but you can do this if you're using the 2.5 mm headphone jack). The other one is that bluetooth sound quality isn't that great from the get-go unless you manage the equalizer settings through your phone.

    A simple tip is try to use the Noice Cancelling function as much as possible. For some reason it increases the base more and gives you a more pure sound than not using it. If you're using bluetooth, just hold down the volume up/down button (both sides) at the same time until a blue light turns on and then off, and if you're just using the jack just press the power button once to see the blue light turn on.

    Ironically i got it down to the same price a year ago (i think it was over $200 when i got it, i used some gift cards to make it work). Good value though but if anyone can get this down a bit more then it's a steal. Also Sennheiser is top in the market at good to great sound quality with their headphones, and i have nothing bad to say about their products (i used a Sennheiser HD 201 and Sennheiser HD 380 Pro before getting this).

      Just FYI, NFC only establishes the Bluetooth connection, it isn't used as a connection. Yea I think the 4.40BT sounds better than the 4.50BT for some reason, I had the 4.50BT but broke them while in my bag as they don't have a hard case so then bought the 4.40BT and they sound much better with better bass and more soundstage IMO, sound much better. Also have to take note that the 2.5mm to 3.5mm is proprietary which is stupid. I got the 4.40BT for $149 from JB a while back, not sure if the NC was worth the extra $50 with reduced sound quality, but obviously if you need NC then yea no brainer.

        Good points OnlinePred. I think people should go for the 4.40BT if they don't want NFC and Noice-Cancelling (which isn't that great but still good enough for a budget headphone). I heard that 4.40BT does sound better than the 4.50BT but i've never tried the 4.40BT so i'm not totally sure either. Plus the 4.40BT is really cheap compared to this headphone.

        In the end though, despite the price, can't go wrong with either one.

        I also kind of agree with the fact that it gets broken and crushed because of the soft case given by Sennheiser. So yeah, protect it very well. It's not that easy to break but just be careful with it.

    How are these compared to the Audio-Technica MSR7? Sound quality that is.
