How is the Closed Back Sennheiser HD 439's? (replacing my MonoPrice MHP-839's)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a set of MonoPrice MHP-839's that I am semi happy with but most of the time I am not. My MonoPrice headphones are very uncomfortable & they have a slight crackle at higher volumes (BUT only with Music). They came this way from MonoPrice. They sound great for gaming but with music they are just no good.

I bought a set of Sennheiser HD 439's tonight from bestbuy that they had on sale. I paid $79.99 for them and paid for them with a GiftCard that I had. i know what your thinking. "Open them up and find out for yourself" Yes that is understandable but I dont want to open them just yet just in case I may have to return them. I dont want to be disrespectful and bring them with all packaging destroyed.

What are your thoughts on these headphones? Amazon reviews are all Positive (15 reviews).

Review since I could not wait lol. These headphones sound very clean and are super comfortable. These feel nothing like the monoprice headphones at all which to me are heavy, uncomfortable and bulky. The Monoprice headphones also feel very cheap even on my head.

I really like these and I think they will be better after using them enough so they break in. they sound nice and warm with nice warm tones & they get loud enough to matter. So far A+ in my book. The comfort level IMO is fantastic I dont even notice them on my head at all
