In addition, these headphones are extremely comfortable and are equipped with a rugged headband and soft replaceable ear pads for all-day listening. Wearers will love the fold-away design, which makes the headphones easy to store and transport. Other details include 32-ohm impedance, a single-sided 3-meter connecting cable, a gold-plated 1/8-inch stereo jack plug, and a 1/4-inch adapter. The DT 440s, which weigh 11.3 ounces, carry a two-year warranty on parts and labor.

From the Manufacturer

Designed as an introductory model to beyerdynamic's premium headphone line, the open back design of the DT 440 gives a true sense of ambience. Extremely well balanced sound, suitable for any music that requires that extra responsive dynamic punch--whether you are into pop, jazz, soul or dance. The DT 440's powerful bass end and extended highs make for a lively and detailed audio experience. The 90 degree swiveling earcups and softer yet sturdy materials for the headband and the ear pads ensure outstanding levels of comfort. The fold-away design makes it easy to store and transport. Thanks to its German engineering, the DT 440 looks as good as it performs.

Ulta-soft, swiveling earcups are ideal for extended periods of wear
Open, On-Ear Design with Swiveling Earcups

The DT 440 features an open-back circumaural (over-the-ear) design for rich audio performance that's designed for critical listening. The open design of the headphones allows increased fidelity to the original recording and a more natural sound stage. The driver design of the DT 440 gives your music full reign, with natural response and crisp linearity. You'll hear every note, every beat, and every detail just as the artist originally intended.

The folding earcup design helps the DT 440 Headphones take up less space while on the move

The ultra-soft earcups are ideal for extended periods of wear, so you can enjoy an entire concert (or two) in complete comfort. An adjustable headband lets you achieve the perfect fit, and the earcups swivel a full 90 degrees for listening and positioning convenience.

Dynamic Transducer for Increased Fidelity and Performance

Without exception, beyerdynamic manufactures the dynamic transducer systems that go into their headphones in-house. From the magnet and diaphragm to the careful wiring and circuitry, beyerdynamic controls quality at all levels of manufacturing, ensuring superior engineering in their headphones down to the smallest detail.

An extremely strong neodymium magnet system offers the DT 440 highly detailed sound reproduction quality, is mechanically very robust, and needs only a small amount of operating voltage which increases efficiency. This increased efficiency also leaves the DT 440 with greater power reserves for dynamic, undistorted sound that especially compensates well for low-spec mobile devices such as portable media players that often can't perform at the same level as dedicated home equipment. The extremely lightweight 32 Ohm voice coil provides transparency and increased impulse fidelity.

Fold-Away Design

The convenient folding earcup design of the DT 440 helps it take up less space while on the move, easily folding into a compact form to carry in your backpack, suitcase, or bag.

I like this as it allows me to listen to music that sounds great and still communicate with those around me.
Charity
In summary, I can tell you that I have spent way too much time, and money, working through many many pairs of headphones but now see that it was all worth it.
christopher mangum
As for the sound, it is crystal clear in the highs, nice strong lows without being overpowering, and rich mids.

First of all, let me tell you that I have been through over 15 different headphones before finding these. Let me also state that I have never paid over 100 dollars for any pair. So yes, these are not the same as something costing 600 dollars, but, of all I have tried these are the absolute best.
As to these headphones, The sonic abilities are incredible. I have listened to several songs in the past on the headphones I have owned before and none have come close to the sonic abilities of these units. From the depths of the lows to the hight of the highs, I have not heard any distortion (exept where forced by the artist for effect). They are not the most comfy at first, but lets face it, the sound is the key and here is where these units shine. By the way, this was the first circumaural headphones to actually fit over my ears! I do have big ears and was suprised that they completely covered them without even touching the edges. I mainly use them for an ipod so the sound is a bit hard to get going. But this the first time I have been able to use the bass boost without making every song sound like it was stressed. The spectrum of reproduction is the best I have heard so I can honestly say this is the final pair I will be owning for some time. Especially when it comes to the high end, I found that music I thought was distorted by design was merely distorted by the headphones. I was truly inspired by the fact that many songs I didnt love because I thought the distortion was deliberate, I now find was just the limits of previous headphones. The build of these units is very sturdy with metal outer casing and quality components. Dont love the folding design, but it does make it easier to store.

I have owned these cans for a full year now and they sound incredible. The extended range they offer lend to a fuller sound-stage than most cans I've had. It is easy to discern where the vocals are center-stage while instruments spread throughout. These are also adept at gaming, it is easy to spin your head around looking for what is behind you - freaked me out the first few times it happened, in a good way. All I could do was think how cool that was. These have a fuller, more complete sound than my Grado 325s, they also outperform my Seins 595s. On the grados, I can only wear them for short periods because of the on ear design, they get uncomfortable for me after an hour or so.

The only drawbacks for me is the open design. While it helps give a bigger, fuller sound-stage, it also becomes irritating for others in the same room if you listen at a medium or louder volume level. They are also big and weigh a bit, that will take getting used to for the ear bud fans. I would not consider these cans portable - to big for that imho.

Be careful with these cans, if your source is decent it is very easy to listen to these cans too loud, they are that good at this price point. They lead to a great listening experience.

Let me start by saying I am a big Sennheiser fan. I have several Senneheiser Headphones. All the way from the $15 HD 201s up to the $400 HD 600s and just about everything in between so I'll admit, I am somewhat biased. All of my Sennheisers are balanced and smooth as butter.

Nevertheless, this was my first pair of Beyers. Beyerdynamics seems to have a good reputation and I wanted to step outside of my Sennheiser vortex and try a pair of Beyers. I ordered the DT440 from Amazon (used but supposedly in Very Good condition). The headphones arrived and I was anxious to try them out.

First, like others have said, this is a BIG headphone. Everything about them is BIG !! The headband is HUGE!!! The ear cups swallowed up my ears. I am an adult but I felt like a little kid that had just put on his dad's headphones. Even with the adjustment on the smallest setting, the headband would not provide a snug fit and the headphone would slide off my head. Not sure who these are designed for but they were simply too big for my head.

Second, sound quality. I play my music on a high end PC equipped with a Xonar DG sound card (which is fantastic, by the way). My Sennheisers really shine with this sound card. It has a headphone amp rated for up to 150 ohms (I think) and it drives my HD600s to a level of near perfection. I plugged the DT440s in expecting to experience the pure sound of a fine pair of Beyerdynamic headphones. However, the sound coming from my pair of DT440s was awful. It was very "tin can" like. The highs were piercingly sharp almost to the point of causing pain and ringing in my ears. The mids were veiled and the lows were very distant. Now I'm no basshead but the bass from the pair of DT440s I received were almost inaudible. Very bizarre. No balance.

These are the best sub-$250 headphones I have ever heard, and a total steal for what they sell for. They fit a little strangely at first, but you quickly get used to them. As for the sound, it is crystal clear in the highs, nice strong lows without being overpowering, and rich mids. The soundstage is phenomenal as well. In other words, I have no complaints about these at all, other than the initially strange fit. I use them from my ipod too, and they sound better than any other headphone I have ever plugged into it. Ie, they do not require amplification in the slightest. They do have a long, thick cord though, so they are not exactly built for that purpose, but I coil the cord up and use them anyway, because nothing has ever sounded so good out of my nano. I also use them amplified on my home system, and they respond very well to that as well. I love them.
