Pros: Good tonal balance and bass

Cons: Slightly veiled sound

I used these cans direct from my MacBook Air 11.6" headphone jack. I played lossless songs using Amarra + iTunes. Very noticeable is the deep full bass and spaciousness. While obviously slightly veiled, the music was very pleasant. The tonal balance across the spectrum has good balance. Nothing really jumps at you in terms of presence. The bass slam and percussive attacks are a bit weak. Snare drums and cow bells tend to be drowned out. What I hear is a pleasant non fatiguing sound from the most delicate of recordings. Overall this headphone falls in the bang for buck category. For the sound quality most mp3 files and portable audio players can give, these cans are more than capable. For better systems, don't be to critical when you use these. Just enjoy the music.


Pros: Very comfortable. Amazing soundstage

Cons: Retail price is a bit on the expensive side. Underpowered when playing with an Iphone w/o an amplifier.

I bought this pieces a few weeks ago during a special and for the amount paid (80 usd) they deliver. 

Like any open-back headphone they are awesome with soundstage. They are the most comfortable headphones I've ever had. Only real downside is that they are really underpowered by an Iphone. For instance, with my Klipsch S4 with 50% volume my head is about to explode in heavy noisy environments, with the HD239 not even at full volume I get to hear them decently. Even in my room if I'm using the Iphone they sound a bit to low.


Bottom line is they are above average pieces. Perhaps they are not worth the 120usd at which they retail, but if you happen to find them with discount price go get them.
