What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sennheiser HD 461i Headset with Inline Mic and 3 Button Control
  • They are super light and you can barely feel them when you have them on.
  • Great sounding light-weight headphones. These were just what I was looking for.
  • Excellent sonic balance, fairly light on the ears for such big earcups, these are nice headphones.
  • Comfortable and light for extended wear. Microphone and volume control inline on left-hand side cord, which is detachable.
  • The headphones are still feeling really nice, they are not heavy and they are very comfortable.

  • This headset is also really lightweight so you can wear them for hours comfortably.
  • The construction is lightweight and has a good feel to it, doesn't give the appearance of quickly falling apart.
  • They fit well and are comfortable without a tendency to move about your head while watching an extended movie. I think this is the perfect size.
  • I'm not a fan of wearing headphones for any length of time, as they always seem to make my head hurt and make my ears uncomfortable due to its weight.
  • My head starts to hurt when I wear them for too long because it's heavy.

What customers say about "Features"
Sennheiser HD 461i Headset with Inline Mic and 3 Button Control
  • I usually have problems with over ear headphones because I suffer from a lot of headaches and migranes and, so far, so great.
  • They are extremely comfy to wear, specially if you're going to wear them for a long time.
  • The bass is good, I'm not going to say it's extremely good but it was better than I expected for the price. I would totally buy these again.
  • I personally thought the cable wasn't as long as I would like it to be and it actually looks very fragile and easy to break.
  • The build is absolutely not up to Sennheiser standards. They are very plastic, rigid. They are light weight and not uncomfortable, but nowhere up to the standards set by this brand.
Sennheiser HD 471i Headset with Inline Mic and 3 Button Control
  • The buttons and microphone are easy to locate and use. Phone call interface is very easy.
  • The cushion is very soundproofing. Definitely a plus if you are going to be using these in an office or on the bus.
  • These headphones are quite comfortable, and they do a good job of blocking out other noise.
  • The volume is too low and the remote control was not working properly. So I had to return it.
  • The headphones are terrible and the positive reviews do not comport with reality. The volume is limited and sound quality marginal.
