Do I buy the HD238's or HD239's?

Patrick Crinnigan, Amazon
9 January 2013
  • Summary: I honestly wasn't sure what headphones to buy as I'm switching from my standard use of in-ear headphones to over head headphones. However I didn't want anything too large or bulky. I thought about Dr Dre's headphones, the cheaper ones at £115 or similar.

  • Summary: These headphones are not as sturdy as the industry standard Sennheiser turquoise blue pair (15 years old) that they replaced - but they fit the bill - and are a considerable step up from many of their Far East rivals.

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.

Good, solid sound

  • Summary: To start with, these headphones when broken in for a couple of hours have bags of clarity, great, but not overpowering bass and effective mids. They can cater from hard rock to metal, with the bass quality suiting house very well.

  • Summary: Sennheiser HD 239 I've had these headphones for about 6 months now (Since July 2014) and they are pretty good in many respects in my opinion. (I paid £69.99 back then) Build: To be perfectly honest, Sennheiser products aren't really known to be flashy and eye-catching like Beats rather more...

Try getting them off of a 10 year old!

  • Summary: I found these really comfortable to wear and I have used them on an hour's walk in city traffic and windy weather. They stayed 'put' during the walk, with an occasional tendency to slip slightly towards the back of the head, but nothing that would cause me an issue.

Good performance when the volume is turned up

Impressively clear, accurate sound - but they are for very specific needs

  • Summary: I was under the impression that these HD239s were just a cosmetic update of the , but having got on the 'phone to the good folks at Sennheiser, they have informed me that these have a higher frequency response - in practise, the difference will be very hard to notice, and the 238s are a lot cheaper...

Really lovely headphones - but not for the commute
