Sennheiser adds HD 400 range to headphone line-up

Sennheiser HD 418

The whole range is designed for both mobile and home use, with high efficiency, neodymium magnets and ultra-light diaphragms.

The HD 408s are optimised for iPods and other portable players, and have a flexible headband for comfort, while the £50 HD 418, pictured, is the first of the closed-back designs, to block out external noise, and has a striking graphic design on the side of the earpieces.

The £65 HD 428 has a ToughRubber finish for durability, while the £75 HD 438 comes with two detachable cables – one 1.4m long, the other 3m.

Completing the range is the £85 HD 448, and all five models come with Sennheiser's two-year guarantee. They're available now.
