There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Out of the box, the sound was full, spacious and very detailed. The bass isn't over powering and the low mids are clear. Though initially rather muddy, the bass has tightened up noticeably after the the first 24 hours burn in and I expect it may still improve more.
Comfort: For me, comfort is at least as important as sound quality at this price point, if not more important. The pads on the 439 are cloth, fairly soft and on the small side for full size headphones. Once I fit my medium size ears fully inside, they were quite comfortable for long term wear (I've listened continuously for just over 2 hours and felt I could easily have kept them on another 2).
Clamping force is minimal, just enough to ensure a good seal. Also, these cans are fairly light and don't dig in to the top of my head.
Isolation: These aren't noise canceling (which is good for sound quality) but they isolate enough for most situations. Subjectively, with no sound playing isolation was average, but once I turned the volume up just a little, it became much better.
Sound Leakage: These cans do not leak much and compare favorably with the Sony Extra Bass line. I turned up the volume full blast and asked my sister if she could hear what I was listening to from about a foot away. She couldn't hear anything.
These could work well in an office setting.
Overall, I think the 448, 439 (xbass) and 449 are the best headphones under $150. They compare favorably with the Sony Extra Bass line and even the Sennheiser 280Pro and 380 in terms of sound quality and soundstage.
Bonus: removable cord
When the headphones arrived I gave them a several-hour pink noise break in before getting impatient and deciding to do it the old fashioned way, since these are for home use and I can afford to be less picky for a few weeks while they finish burning in.
Test 1: fit
They're comfortable, I've got a pretty big head and there isn't any pinching. They're not pushing my glasses around, either, which is a plus.
Test 2: low-high test (sinusoidal waves)
Ran them through the audible spectrum. They performed well, though the super-low frequencies (<15hz) were a little wobbly (since these frequencies are inaudible to pretty much everyone I'm talking about the "feel") and I stopped "feeling" the vibration around 3-4hz.
The high doesn't develop any weirdness until around 16kHz for me, but it's doubtful that people will experience anything above that in day-to-day listening.
Test 3: album
Now for the fun stuff. My test album was Massive Attack's Mezzanine (my audio-engineer roommate's favorite for testing sound systems). I turned off the EQ briefly to get a feel for them in "natural" mode and they performed well, everything was very clear, equal audio performance in both ears. I put my EQ back in happy mode and spent about an hour listening. The bass put out is excellent and the mids have great clarity (which is a huge point in favor). No tinny-ness in the treble or crackling that shouldn't be there.
Test 4: isolation
For the isolation test I did a coin drop and crunched a plastic bag, as well as a talking test. Scale 0 (no isolation) to 10 (complete isolation).
No music: 2; minor isolation, nothing spectacular, about what you would expect for something that doesn't advertise as noise canceling. Or putting a bag over your head.
Music: 8; I recommend looking both ways before crossing the street and you may need a tap on the shoulder to clue in to surrounding people, but the outside world is still present.
White/pink noise: 9.5. I could not hear normal-volume activities at all, my test partner had to scream before it was noticeable. The neighbors were not pleased.
Test 5: surround capability
Got a virtual haircut. I don't recommend doing this test in the dark because it's a little freaky.
Solid surround capability, though the rear is a little weak.
All-in-all, solid headphones for the price. About what I expected and I'm pretty happy.
Edit: Forgot to mention - changing the cables is a bit of a bitch, but that's not a huge deal since I won't be doing that often. The included adapter fits and works.
FEEL: It is really comfortable, it adjust to head perfectly without that vice grip feel, the material that surrounds the ear is soft and isnt covered with that funny leather material that flakes after long use, not to mention it is light weight dont let the size fool you it looks big and heavy but that is far from the truth
SOUND QUALITY: I have a sennheiser HD 202 and in comparison the 202 has a louder bassier sound, however I just got them and I know that you have to allow the cones of the speaker to stretch to their full potential, as I did with my 202's. To do this fairly quickly I use a clean bassy song put it on a reasonable volume that doesn't rattle the speakers and just leave to play and repeat the process over the course of a week and I am sure it will sound great. As it stand currently it sounds cleaner and clearer than the 202's which should be, as it covers a wider range in the sound spectrum than the HD 202's.
DESIGN: It looks better in person than in the pictures, makes you look like you know what your doing " A professional", and as I mentioned earlier the leather material that covers the sponge, you dont have to worry about that flaking over time because there isnt any.
So why 4 stars ......simply because as it stands... out of box my 202's are bassier but after I stretch the cones we will see how that goes
