  • Summary: Hello, Quick thoughts on modded with bass mod sennheiser hd 439. Build quality It is a mixed bag really. Headphones it self feels cheap. Well, probably because it is cheap. But they don't feel cheap then you have them on a head. They are very comfy, velour pads fit my ears perfectly.
  • Pros: Very comfy, sound for a price, Bass (modded)
  • Cons: Build quality feels cheap, maybe female voices

  • Summary: These headphones are the best. Neutral sound but without being boring, the only "coloration" is an increase in bass extension, which is excellent if you listen to rock, metal or electronic. You won't get tired of listening to them.
  • Pros: Excellent soundstage for closed back headphones. Awesome bass extension and great overall clarity without being harsh or tiresome. Removable cables.
  • Cons: Could include a storing pouch. Nothing else worth noticing.

  • Summary: First of all, I am by no means, a critical audiophile with a trained ear, so don't expect this review to have an in-depth breakdown of the sound. I'm merely a college student that enjoys listening to my music.
  • Pros: great value, very comfortable, velour padding, lightweight, surprisingly durable, detachable cable, best design of the Sennheiser HD 4xx series
  • Cons: not for bassheads, cheap build, might feel like on-ears to those with large ears, comes with no carrying case, sound isolation is adequate at best

  • Pros: Low cost, feather-weight, sound pretty good
  • Cons: At $39.00......none?

  • Summary: I picked these headphones up as a replacement for my years-old Bose TriPorts whose earcups are falling apart. I already own a pair of 558s, but at present my girlfriend and I share a small room and open-back headphones don't work well with our respective sleep schedules.
  • Pros: Sound quality, comfort, varying cable lengths
  • Cons: Underwhelming aesthetics, possible build quality issues

  • Summary: Intro Sennheiser has always been well-renowned for their high-end headphones, why in fact their flagships cover most of the top 5 headphones, but what about their low-end headphones? Are they good enough to distinguish themselves?
  • Pros: great SQ, great modding capabillities, comfortable, very light, aesthetics, surprisingly durable
  • Cons: very plasticky, needs burn-in for full potential, needs modding for full potential, aesthetics

  • Summary: I got to try these out when my brother bought them for his casual computer use. The headphones are very light, and have quite comfortable cloth pads and headband. They are made entirely of plastic, which at least doesn't feel to be of too high quality.
  • Pros: Light, comfortable, detachable cable & comes with two lengths, bass is not dominating
  • Cons: The sound overall is a bit muddy, plastic design seems quite fragile
