[Best Buy] $99 Sennheiser HD 4.50R

Looking to replace my beats studio 2.0 wireless headphones. I have a pair of original wired momentum and they're a bit less emphasis on bass which underwhelmed when listening to EDM but just mildly.

I want bass, good noise cancellation and durable wireless headphones. How are these HD 4.50R?

Edit:
Picked up a pair today. Bass is punchy and nice but not as thumping as the beats studio 2.0. But very enjoyable to listen. Call quality is great. And I have a huge head with no immediate comfort issues wearing these. The noise cancellation completely drowned out any road noise or fan noises while driving home from the store.

10/10. Would buy again. Note it is micro usb connection not USB C as someone else suggested

Seems like a pretty good deal & I really like the red accents. I already have the Sony XM1000v2, both the BBpro v1/2 + numerous BT earbud/iems so I def dont need this but still, the force is strong. I'm not sure if the SO will be impressed though :facepalm: .

Regardless an upvote for a good find.

Btw those looking for heavy bass, good build, so so ANC but great calling features, check out the BBpros. Decent sound for R&B/club/dance stuff

Bought these last year and returned them. Super uncomfortable. They put a ton of pressure on my ears and the top of my head after 15 minutes of wearing them.

Sound quality and noise cancelling was very good. I'm a huge fan of Sennheiser, and this would be a great buy if these didn't hurt so much!

Curious to know but do you have a big head? I'm torn between getting these or the backbeat pros.

My head is normal sized... I think! This is actually a very common complaint about these headphones.

One of the few things best buy has going for them is you can go there and try on all the headphones in most locations.

I did a lot of research then went in and tested the ones I wanted. I also have a big head and found these too right. I ended with with Plantronic bbpro IIs as they were bigger and had a lot more bottom end which I prefer since I listen to a lot of punk and metal.

ANC is fine, but the earpads are pretty tight/hot (I have a small head) and there is almost no bass to be heard from these, so stay away if you're a basshead. At $99 though these are way better than anything else in this price range. Build quality is solid, sound quality is quite good (balanced sound signature), noise cancelling is better than anything below $200.

Seems like a good deal. But this is where I draw the line. No more bluetooth headphones (just bought the QC35)! At least until the next great deal...

Bought the bb pro two years ago when it was a deal on rfd still works very well. No complaints
