These bumpin’ big-sized cans know how to swell the music within you. Though perhaps too smoothed-out and "warm-sounding" for the analytical taste of audiophile hi-fi poindexters, the large supple bass punch provided by these headphones will blend into silky mids & clean highs for listeners seeking a pleasant, even-toned soundscape. The real nice thing is not a trace of sonic harshness to be found here; These affordable oversize open-back earcup headphones are strong audio performers at their pricepoint and a great candidate for hip-hop lovers, bass funkers, heavy rockers, and dance mix beatmakers. The HD485 are also a value-loaded, solidly-built, yet inexpensive choice perfect for soon-to-be serious audiophiles and future audio connoisseurs saving up for a more high-end, accurate headphone purchase down the road.

These large-sized, burnished olive-gold, fully circumaural headphones are quite lightweight and built super-tough for long haul durability. Sennheiser is well-known for its extraordinary materials R&D quality, and these headphones are as sturdy as they are good-sounding. The HD-485's efficient 32-ohm impedance rating should mean plenty of output from basically any portable audio source without requiring the use of a dedicated headphone amp -- although any amp will certainly up the dynamics & musical detail resolution capabilities of the HD-485. The large, circular earpads are covered in a soft fabric material that surrounds but never crowds the ear. The headband mechanism slides in and out on both sides for an easy, secure fit. The single-sided, fully detachable headphone cord is connected to the left earpiece and terminates in a large, straight 1/8" mini-plug (3.5mm) with an included screw-on ¼" inch adapter which you can shove into your home stereo system for sweet jams. The detachable HD-485 headphone cable is easily user-replaceable and all replacement parts can be had via the website. The totally slick Sennheiser headphone holder accessory is also included gratis in the HD485 packaging! A cool 2-year parts & labor warranty remains standard on Sennheiser headphones.
