Sennheiser gets style-conscious with new headphones

Sennheiser HD 448, HD 438, HD 428 and HD 418 headphones have distinct designs

Sennheiser has released four new pairs of headphones, each featuring a striking design. The four models have been optimised for use with MP3 players, though they are also suited for use with a home entertainment system.

The Sennheiser HD 448 is the premium model, offering what Sennheiser claims is "well-balanced stereo audio with detailed imaging" with a retro body. The Sennheiser HD 438 has a similar sound presentation with the main difference being a design featuring five chrome "wheel spokes" on the ear-cups. Along with the white-and-black flame design of the Sennheiser HD 418, this is a significant departure from the conservative styling of older Sennheiser headphones like the Sennheiser HD 600 and Sennheiser HD 800.

The low-end Sennheiser HD 418 is available for $99.95, the mid-range Sennheiser HD 428 and Sennheiser HD 438 cost $129.95 and $149.95, respectively, and the premium Sennheiser HD 448 is priced at $169.95. All models are available now.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
