  • Summary: This is a very well balanced headphone and very forgiving on low quality mp3. I was a bit worried about the bass based on many reviews before purchasing it, but was delightly surprised to see the bass was actually quite plenty, and very solid.
  • Pros: -Sound stage, -clarity
  • Cons: -a bit too heavy

  • Summary: The DT440s are a major departure from the old 431. If you love the rich Beyerdynamic sound of the past, you will be disappointed by these. The bass is light and not as extended as the old phones which robs the music of a lot of rhythm. In many ways, these sound similar to the AKG 401s with a slightly forward midrange in the presence band. Soundstaging is quite claustrophobic compared to something like the AKG 501 but still better than the Grado SR125.

  • Summary: This is great fun all around headphone. It does every kind of music well. Not the most detailed so it's quite forgiving on bad recordings. It can be folded up but not very portable considering it leaks like crazy and its quite heavy. It is like wearing a dumbell on your head. The padding on the headband is rather poor so it digs into your skull *ouch*. The clamp force is rather high, after a while, it improves a bit.

  • Summary: After owning HD497, A500, and HD580 I can finally say that these are the headphones for me. Not to say that those other headphones are bad but from my personal tastes the DT440 is all that I ever wanted. The headphones are very fun, commonly known as the groovalizers because of their fun, fast punchy nature. Such characteristics are what I like in a headphone.

  • Summary: Klart bra ,efter att ha lyssnat igen div lurar akg ,sennheiser mm så fastnade jag för dessa även om vi får se om kvaliteten är så dålig som vissa skriver. Hifi choice tyckte det var en bra lur och jag tycker så här länge är den kalas , drivs av en PRO-Ject headbox s. Kört flera timmar om dagen och den växer med tiden ... haft dom i ca 6 mån nu och de växer med tiden ljudmässigt sett, dock är de rätt "plastiga" och sitter lite för löst.

  • Excerpt: Наушники настолько хорошо показали себя во время прослушивания на ламповом CDP RAYSONIC, что я вынужден был забыть про дорогущие AKG K702 и купить в три раза более дешевые "Бейера". Похраняя присущие топовой модели AKG черты звучания, они звучали чище в голосовом диапазоне, давая несколько менее масштабную "звуковую сцену".Отточеное, филигранное, "студийное" звучание, которое я могу сравнить только со звучанием студийных наушников AKG K701-702 стало для меня сюрпризом во...
  • Pros: 1. Звук. Кристально чистый, прозрачный, "мониторный". Превосходно артикулированый бас, очень хорошее пространственное впечатление. Идеально сочетание с абсолютно любым жанром музыки, будь то вокал, классика, джаз или более примитивные электронные (главный признак профессионального "звука").2. Невысокий импеданс позволяет сочетать эти наушники с кучей портативных плееров без потерь на громкость.3. Удобные, превосходно сидят на голове, не сваливаются.
  • Cons: Хлипкое крепление чащек к оголовью вынуждает вас через год искать замену среди более надежных (и дорогих) моделей.

  • Excerpt: Три года использую, доволен. Менять не хочу. Хрупкости не замечал, просто аккуратно использовать, и всё)
  • Pros: Отличный звук на мой взгляд. Чётко и чисто воспроизводят чистоты. Повезло с тем что взял на распродаже в два раза дешевле. Отлично сидят на голове.
  • Cons: После трёх часов беспрерывного нахождения на голове немного устали виски :) В целом - не обнаружено
