This review is from: Sennheiser HD439 Over-Ear Headphones
Pros: Good sound quality
Cons: Failed after just over one year of light usage!
Other Thoughts: 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. Last week she told me they started sounding "funny/echo'y". I assumed she had just inadvertently turned on some cheesy effect in the sound card settings. But, I looked in to it, and it is bizarre.
These headphones obviously have some audio processing circuitry - that has failed. Everything played through them (computer, music on phone, MP3 player, etc) sounds like the surround channel of a DTS mix. It very reverb/delay-y with the vocals barely there (no center channel) and no bottom end (no sub). Like I said, exactly like surround channels would be in a 5.1 track.
But, they are of course out of warranty. She loved them, but I should have just stuck with Sony, I guess.
Pros: Worked flawlessly (for two years)
Cons: Has been sitting on the shelf, unmoved, well ventilated, since I bought it. Then all connectivity went down a few days ago. Checked a few other things, then noticed the switch - all LEDS dim and blinking rapidly together. Tried unplugging, power supply checked out fine with multi-meter, etc.
All networking components on UPSs and there were no surges. Poof. It's dead, Jim!
My 15 year old 16 port SMC switch is still going strong......
Cons: Failed in less than a year
Needed to RMA it
Other Thoughts: Failed within 1 to 2 years like most of my other GSkill RAM.READ FULL REVIEW
