That’s certainly a convincing recommendation.
The only thing I don’t like about it is that it doesn’t have it’s own volume control button or scroll wheel, but that’s about the only complaint I can think of.
Seems like the PC 320 and such are the only ones that come with that (and it’s on one of the speakers, not the cable).
Bit tempted by those too, but they’re open-backed and also rather more expensive than the others I’ve looked at.
The cable is more than long enough too, my pc is under my desk and I never run out of cable when I sit at my desk.
ah. One of the sets I returned had a 1.2m cable and that really was far too short; I’d have ruined it very quickly.
How is the cable quality? From what I’ve read and watched, it seems a bit thin on the 429 and I imagine it’s not too different on the 419 (the Sennheiser site doesn’t even show pictures of the cable, so it’s hard to know, though).
