The Sennheiser MM 450-X Wireless are compact on-ear headphones that sound surprisingly great. They reproduce vocals and instruments well and provide enough isolation for moderately loud environments. Unfortunately, the very small on-ear cups are uncomfortable and the headband does not feel sturdy or durable.

Sennheiser MM 450-X Design Picture

The Sennheiser MM 450-X are compact but flimsy headphones. They are lightweight but uncomfortable and feel susceptible to breaking, especially at the joints. On the upside, the control options provided are relatively easy to use and efficient.

Style
Sennheiser MM 450-X Design Picture 2

The MM 450X are small, flimsy-looking headphones. They are fragile, and their understated design is a little unexciting compared to other on-ear models. The black color scheme is given a bit more flare with silver highlights from the metal frame, the headband, and the Sennheiser branding. They do stick out a lot laterally when on the head, which conflicts with their compact, understated aesthetic.

6.0 Comfort
Show Help
What it is: Adjustability and degrees of freedom, pressure, stiffness and weight.
When it matters: When the headphones are going to be used for long durations.
Score components: Subjectively assigned
Sennheiser MM 450-X Comfort Picture

Clamping Force
Show Help
What it is: The force that the headphones exert on your head, once you have them on. This is purely a measurement of the force applied, which does not take into account the earpad's surface area and the resulting pressure you will feel, on or around your ears.
When it matters: The tighter the headphones, the more force they put on your head. This can get uncomfortable or cause pain and soreness during long listening sessions.
:
0.72 lbs

The on-ear design of the MM 450-X is not comfortable for everyone. They are lightweight, flexible, and the earcups swivel, providing a little more comfort. However, the lack of padding on the headband and the ear cups feels a little uncomfortable and fatiguing after long listening sessions. The headband exerts a noticeable amount of tension on the head in an attempt to keep the headphones stable but also causes discomfort over time.

8.3 Controls
Show Help
What it is: The control scheme of the headphones, the number of functions provided, button layout and ergonomics as well as the quality of tactile feedback.
When it matters: If you want to control volume, pause your music or make phone calls without directly interacting with your audio device.
Sennheiser MM 450-X Controls Picture
Ease of use : Average
Feedback : Above-average
Call/Music Control : Yes
Volume Control : Yes
Noise Canceling Control : Yes
Talk-Through : Yes
Additional Buttons : No

Button layout and functionality is decent but cramped. The controls can be found on the right ear cup and include noise cancelling, Bluetooth, volume, call/music and track skipping. The cramped layout, however, is disappointing, as it becomes bothersome to use if you have larger fingers. The tactile feedback could also be improved.

7.0 Stability
Show Help
What it is: How the headphones are designed to prevent them from slipping off your ears or falling off your head.
When it matters: If you plan on using the headphones while doing sports or other physical activities that requires a lot of movement.
Score components: Subjectively assigned
Sennheiser MM 450-X Stability Picture

The MM 450-X are decently stable headphones. They stay in place during casual listening sessions. They're compact and lightweight, which prevents them from swaying too much during moderate physical activity. However, they're not designed for sports and will slip off your ears while running or doing high-intensity activities.

7.2 Portability
Show Help
What it is: The volume of space occupied by the headphones when folded into their most compact format.
When it matters: If you're often on the move and need to carry your headphones in a bag, purse , or pocket.
Score components:

Volume : 27.9 Cu. Inches
Stand required : N/A

The MM-450-X are more compact than typical on ear headphones. They are very portable and fold up into a smaller format to transport easily. They will comfortably fit in jacket pockets, purses and backpacks without taking too much space. They maybe a little too wide for regular pant pockets but they won't be too cumbersome to carry on your person.

6.5 Case

Comes with a soft case that will protect the headphones from scratches and minor falls. However, the soft fabric and won't shield the headphones from heavy physical stress or water damage. The case also adds quite a bit of bulk to the headphones which is slightly dissapointing.

6.0 Build Quality

What it is: Durability, material quality, cheap/expensive feel.
When it matters: When the headphones are going to be used by multiple users (classes/studios), by children, in tough conditions, on a daily basis, or for exercise.
Score components: Subjectively assigned
Sennheiser MM 450-X Build Quality Picture

Build quality is sub-par. The compact, small design does not feel sturdy or durable, and the many joints are susceptible weak points. On the upside, the metal frame through the headband is relatively flexible and can handle a fair amount of stress.

8.2 Breathability

Isolation

Show Help
Score components:

The Sennheiser MM 450-X have moderately good noise isolation. The small on-ear cups provide a surprisingly decent seal that doesn't leak much sound and adds some passive isolation. Their active noise cancellation does a good enough job blocking the ambient noise of an office-like environment but might not be efficient enough to cancel the noise of an international flight.

Active Features

Show Help
What it is: Headphones with active components that require a battery. This includes noise cancelling and wireless headphones that actively reduce noise or transmit audio via a wireless connection.
When it matters: How suitable the power and wireless specifications of an active headphone will be, depending on your listening habits. The range and/or discharge time of the active headphone you select will be important if you're often on the move or have long uninterrupted listening sessions.
Score components:

The MM 450-x have a relatively short battery life at 7 hours of continuous play time, but they have a few power saving features that allow, them to last a bit longer when used casually. They also support aptX, which combined with their already pretty fast wireless connection, makes them latency-free when streaming audio and only slightly laggy watching videos. They also have a fairly decent wireless range. Unfortunately, they do not support Sennheiser's great downloadable app unlike the more recent models of the brand.

When it matters: This makes pairing with an NFC-enabled device a lot easier than the typical and often tedious hold-to-pair procedure that most wireless headphones have.
:
No

The Sennheiser MM 450-X have a decent line-sight range but deliver a surprisingly stable connection up to 40ft when the Bluetooth source was placed in another room. This makes them good wireless headphones to walk around your house or a moderately sized office without necessarily carrying your Bluetooth source on you. They won't be the farthest reaching outdoors in direct line of sight but this is not a significant issue for most listeners. Unfortunately, their hold to pair procedure and lack of NFC makes them a little tedious to switch between devices.

Show Help
What it is: Some active headphones remain usable while charging. They continue to stream audio and do not disable other active features.
When it matters: This makes sure that your headphones's battery are not being drained when your relatively close to a power source. However, this means wireless headphones will need a wired connection to the power source during the charging process.

The MM 450-x have better battery life than the MM 550-x but take a bit longer to charge. They won't be the best headphones to take on long road trips or lengthy flights, but you get about 7 hours of use when all the features are enabled and at regular volumes. Unfortunately, their auto-off feature is a bit slow at 60 minutes so don't forget to turn them off to save power.

What it is: The additional app provided to enhance your listening experience. They typically deliver a set of practical features that give you more control over the sound, noise cancelling and effects that the headphones produce.
When it matters: An app with a lot of features allows you to customize your listening experience to suit your taste and preferences. For example, additions like an equalizer can give you more bass or treble and room effects can simulate a bigger Soundstage in closed back headphones.
