  • Summary: I used these cans direct from my MacBook Air 11.6" headphone jack. I played lossless songs using Amarra + iTunes. Very noticeable is the deep full bass and spaciousness. While obviously slightly veiled, the music was very pleasant. The tonal balance across the spectrum has good balance. Nothing really jumps at you in terms of presence. The bass slam and percussive attacks are a bit weak. Snare drums and cow bells tend to be drowned out.
  • Pros: Good tonal balance and bass
  • Cons: Slightly veiled sound

  • Summary: I bought this pieces a few weeks ago during a special and for the amount paid (80 usd) they deliver.  Like any open-back headphone they are awesome with soundstage. They are the most comfortable headphones I've ever had. Only real downside is that they are really underpowered by an Iphone. For instance, with my Klipsch S4 with 50% volume my head is about to explode in heavy noisy environments, with the HD239 not even at full volume I get to hear them decently.
  • Pros: Very comfortable. Amazing soundstage
  • Cons: Retail price is a bit on the expensive side. Underpowered when playing with an Iphone w/o an amplifier.

  • Excerpt: These headphones have a great sound, and a very comfortable feel for hours of wear. The cord is long enough and single-sided (no twisted cords!). I carry them around in my bag for listening to my music when I am on the road.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Handy Storage Pouch
  • Cons: not noise cancelling

Big improvement to my previous pair

  • Excerpt: I am not a techie so I can't tell you that the neodymium magnet thingies make them better than other headphones. What I can tell you is that they are: <br /><br />1. Comfortable<br />2. The sound is great<br />3. The plug isn't big, so it fits the iPhone even in a case<br />4. They are not HUGE so you don't feel like you have ear muffs on!
  • Pros: Comfortable, Good For Use With Iphone

Avoid

  • Excerpt: Don't believe the hype. I bought these to have a better option for my iPhone but quickly went back to the standard iPhone earbuds. A lot of the<br />sound is lost with these headphones and on many tracks I had trouble hearing the vocals.

Leakage

  • Summary: These headphones are very comfortable to wear and the sound quality is very good. The only disadvantage is that they leak sound a lot! I had the volume at its minimum and still other people could hear it. Apart from that, a good set of headphones.

Quality is not built to match its price tag

  • Summary: Sennheiser has its own name in audio, but one thing to be sure is that these headphones are on their bottom range. Don't be fooled by the price tag for HD239, these are basically made with almost the same quality than the HD219, those are sold on prime for 35 pounds. Less than half price of the HD239.
