Failed after about 13 months

Kevin K., Newegg
1 week ago
  • Summary: I have multiple pairs of Sony headphones going on 25-30 years (including an original pair of V6s) that all still work flawlessly except for obvious wear/tear on the pads, etc. These 439s were purchased for my Daughter for computer use (not mobile use) Xmas '14.
  • Pros: Good sound quality Comfortable
  • Cons: Failed after just over one year of light usage!

Sound fairly decent

Visa, Newegg
31 December 2015
  • Summary: Don't buy this if you aren't worried about the wire on headphones breaking. There are better sounding Sennheiser headphones for around the same price without a detachable wire.
  • Pros: Sounds much better than bass dead Beat by Dre. which is what I had before. Well worth the price compared to most other headphones. Detachable wire while isn't the best because of the shape of it at least it comes with 2 wires and a detachable wire that you can most likely replace in the future. W...
  • Cons: Unplugging and plugging in the removable wire is quite difficult especially if it's your first time. Audio quality isn't the best but is much better than most other $40 headphones (while on sale + promo code)

Meh.

Predrag S., Newegg
19 September 2015
  • Summary: The sound is pretty average, there's noticeable sound leakage and it's not a comfortable set of cans whilst wearing glasses. I've noticed subtle cracking noises at higher volume levels. This affects Bowie listening....
  • Pros: Design, Cord quality, Fabric
  • Cons: Everything else.

defective

herbert a., Newegg
12 September 2015
  • Summary: If I put my hands on the cups and press, the snapping noise goes away at any volume. These will handle anything a high end card can throw at them. I'm happy with 20% volume, so no RMA.
  • Pros: design cord and jack options price to performance
  • Cons: Anything over 20% volume I get loud snapping noise. Long break in time.

Leftshifted, not worth full price. Very comfortable though

John-Michael S., Newegg
3 September 2015
  • Summary: Audio quality is decent, but probably not in the $100 full price range. My much cheaper Sennheiser CX300 *in-ears* have better audio quality, without having to double the volume output. Blocks out some sound by sheer virtue of being over-ear.
  • Pros: - Extremely comfortable. I can wear these for hours and hours, unlike most other on or over ear designs - Good soft, comfortable padding on earmuffs and headband, not the cheap faux leather that cracks and falls apart - Extremely lightweight for the size. - Multiple cable length choices and two j...
  • Cons: - Leftshifted. The removable audio cables -easily- get loose enough to cause the right speaker to be quieter. Sometimes I just give up playing with the jack and use my sound mixer to play at +1 right shift to compensate, which makes it sound natural again. - Extremely quiet. I have to nearly doub...

Super lightness is a huge benefit

Anonymous, Newegg
29 August 2015
  • Pros: I wear them at my desk continuously from 8:00am to 4:00pm everyday, So far these have been the only headphones that are comfortable enough for me to wear for that many continuos hours. Another plus for me is the bass is just perfect, one of my pre purchase concerns was that it was going to have t...
  • Cons: It's Never going to be issue for me but I could imagine that for some people like my bro who likes his music at ear damaging volume levels these could be a bit louder. I'm sure this could be remedied by amplifying the source.
