Summary: These headphones sound 60% as good as the pricey but,,affordable HD-600 ($500 msrp). They are a great headphone for something like an I pod. I use them with my Hi Fi Man HM-602 portable WAV file player.
Summary: I got an amazing deal for these on ebay for $50! Only downside is I did not get the original packaging.
These are a all plastic designed, open-backed pair of headphones. And because of this, music leaks a lot and doesn't work too well in noisy areas.
Pros: Great Sound Quality, Reasonable Price, Removable Cable, Comfortable
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.
Summary: Disclaimer: My review may be rather invalid due to my lack of experience in the audio world. In that case, if you are new to this, it may be very helpful.
The HD 439 was definitely a good buy for its purpose of being my iPod's go to for music.
The sound is great for the price.
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
Quick thoughts on modded with bass mod sennheiser hd 439.
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)
