  • Summary: Super comfortable headphones, I can wear these for extended periods of time with my glasses on with no problem. Love the fabric cushions (instead of the usual leatherette that can be found on other headphones). Sound bleed is minimal, another person in the same room is not complaining about hearing what I'm listening to. The build quality is OK, but it could be a little sturdier. But I love the fact the headphones are so lightweight.
  • Pros: lightweight, comfortable, great sound quality
  • Cons: A little flimsy, but not so much

  • 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. Build Quality: 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. Fairly stylish, very lightweight, and very comfortable. The earpads however due collect dirt, dust, hair, and other gross things.. Making the earpads itchy after time.
  • Pros: Great Sound Quality, Reasonable Price, Removable Cable, Comfortable
  • Cons: Itchy Earpads, Possible Build Issues

  • 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.  I have had the Sennheiser HD 439 for four months and here's my review:   For its price range, the comfort is unmatched.
  • 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

  • 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.    Packaging Blister pack, nothing to write home about. Same basic packaging as most of their low-end stuff.
  • Pros: Sound quality, comfort, varying cable lengths
  • Cons: Underwhelming aesthetics, possible build quality issues

  • 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.   Sound Quality The sound is great for the price. Very crisp at the mids to highs, and the bass wasn't overpowering.
  • Pros: Sound Quality (Post Burn-In), Portable device compatibility, Lightweight
  • Cons: Feels INCREDIBLY plasticy, Maybe too light, Soundstage isn't the best, Isolation

  • 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? And I'm here to say, after about half a year that they are indeed quite well-rounded headphones.                                   ...
  • 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. I can obviously not comment on long time endurance. Visually they do look quite appealing however.   As my reference pair in this test I used the Beyerdynamic DT-770 80 ohm headphones.
  • 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
