Hi, i Currently own JVC HA RX 700 , and well i broke their pin and thought of replacing them

These are the best headphones i have had so far , i mostly use my headphones for listening to Rock Genre and sometiems Pop Music.

Do you think Sennheiser HD 439  are good for listening to ROCK music off a cellphone or laptop ?

 

I wanted to get Grado SR 60 e but they are 99euros in Europe (France/Germany) which is a little above my limit. I am willing to Dish out around 70 euro for a good set of cans

So whats the best option i have?
Can i get a quick reply , since i will be leaving europe soon and getting genuine Headphones back in Pakistan can be pretty tough

As i said , Grado SR60i are like 99 Euro here in France and even in Germany on Amazon , and Amazon US does not deliver to France ..

So they are out of my prize range :(

I so wanted them

HD 439 vs HD 449

I dont really listen to Hip Hop or tracks with too much Bass. I do listen to Rock Music so i would want cans with good bass but not looking for bass beasts.

Keeping that in view what would be a better option for me , 449 or 439 or any other Cans in this price range ?
Not an Audiophile , dont really know much  so help would be much appreciated

I plan to use them with my android cell phone and HP Probook 450 without an AMP

The Sennheiser HD439 will greatly fit your needs IMO. It does best with EDM music, rocks music, it does pop music fine, the dark signature makes it great even with bad recordings. smily_headphones1.gif it does not need an amp to be happy but upgrading one will be so slightly beneficial,

If you need something with better isolation, look into the SRH-440 (not Shure if you can find it in your price range thought), it's thinner in sound but other than that, it has smooth mids and crystal clear tops to sound great with the genre of music you listen to,

But if you were to ask me, for the genre of music you listen to and purely by sound, I will go for the HD439 over SRH-440 for you.

Hope it helps
