I've made a comprehensive search of the forums, and I haven't found a satisfactory answer for what I'm looking. A few year ago I went trough a similar issue and after reading a lot it was evident that the best option that I had were the S4. Not a single question needed. Not the case today.
Right now there is a special, offering the HD 239 for under $80 dollars.
I have a pair of Klipsch Image S4, and I just love their quality. Only issue is that they are a bit uncomfortable over long periods of time and that they tend to distort the sound when eating or even moving the head for a little bit. The S4 are awesome when using any kind of public transportation (plane, bus, etc..), but are awful when just chilling on my room wanting to listen to some music.
I began a search with $100 in my pocket. I don't care about form factor, they just need to be very comfortable and versatile. Meaning that I can wear them in my room or in a plane. I don't want the best possible sound. I just want good sound quality (at least on par with the S4) and top notch comfort.
Regarding HD 239 I've read that they leak sound. Do they leak sound at the same levels that the user is listening to, or is it just a minor leak at high levels?
Do you believe the HD 239 are a good deal?? Or am I better off looking somewhere else??? Any advice?
Thanks in advance.
