Sennheiser HD439 Over-Ear Headphones
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Failed after about 13 months 01/31/2016

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.

TRENDnet TEG-S50G Unmanaged 5-Port Gigabit GREENnet Switch. Limited Life Time Warranty
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked flawlessly (for two years)
Great price

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......
