Finally we can say that Sennheiser HD 439 is not pricey, even it is very comfortable to wear and the sound should appeal to anyone and everyone who does not want a bass heavy set of cans.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Leftshifted, not worth full price. Very comfortable though

 

Audio quality is decent, but definitely 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. You'll...

- 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...

- 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...

Long Term Use

 

A dedicated sound card and adjusted equalizer will make your listening experience on these much better, they take the extra power and run with it. The frequencies are replayed very accurately so you may need to adjust your equalizer to boost the lower...

Clear sound across the board Superb for the price range Acceptable cable quality Very comfortable, never gives me headaches and doesn't heat my ears up It's on its fourth year of continuous use and it's just as good as the day I bought it Bass powerful...

Newer models available, but these are still my favorite of this price range Big to travel with but that is to be expected with headphones without the additional weight of hinges

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Came in good package, but once tested, the volume was low and only one side of the headset actually had sound. Had to return.

 

No pros on this yet

Bad sound.

Great Headphones

 

Good sound quality, can wear them for hours at a time with no ear preassure discomfort, includes 10 and 3 foot cables, interesribg way to hide the detachable cable, great open ear design, stays on head.

Great Headphones!

 

I would recommend these headphones to anyone who likes to have great sound, however, as with obtaining great sound from all full-sized headphones coupled with portable electronics, use a headphone amplifier, like the FiiO E6 Portable Headphone Amplifier.

I've owned these headphones for a couple of years, I use them frequently and I find them to be my favorite headphones of the many I've owned and presently own. I like the fabric over-the-ear design as it makes them very comfortable. I use these...

There's nothing I have any issues with.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Failed after about 13 months

 

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)...

Good sound quality Comfortable

Failed after just over one year of light usage!

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Sound fairly decent

 

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.

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...

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.

 

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....
