Some question about sennheiser HD 439,449

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

I've few questions

 

1) As Sennheiser HD 439 specifies that they have rich bass experience..Does that mean HD 449 will be lacking in bass?? Cause I've heard HD 449 has very good Sound stage and very descent Mid/High...Do they perform pretty Good on Bass too??

 

2) Some of the reviews say that while using in Mobiles/Tablets they need Portable amplifier to get the maximum quality out of them..Is it t rue??

 

3) I am Not a Basshead but I like just the amount of bass a song needs in it..So What would be a better choice ?? HD 439 or 449?? I generally like acoustic type of songs like Owl City or Sigur Ros...I suppose then HD 449 would be fairly good enough?? By equaliser tweaking will it be sufficient?? (Again,I'm neither a basshead or Audiophile..but I like sufficient amount of bass in a song to feel the song warm) And How does it perform on PC while playing games and Watching Movies???

 

PLEASE REPLY  smily_headphones1.gif

Hello!

 

Sennheiser HD439 are better off with electronic music, a bit of rock or something around that[hip hop, rap etc]. The bass are stronger than average and will make basshead dance. Mids are warm. Very warm. I didn't had my chance to hands on the HD449 so I can't comment anything about it but if you wanted just right amount of bass and not too much, you might like to look somewhere else! For those I had tried and though you might like it is the Sony MDR-7506. A very nice pair of headphone for no basshead! It might sound a lil cold but just a lil..

 

Hope this help!

Opps! So sorryyyyy! I miss read your post xD

 

anyway, HD439 are great for electronics! I don't see much issue other than slightly more bass than usual. Not a big deal for your needs and genre

Heyyy!

 

Give it a longer burn-in period. You don't need pink noise, just any of your music! Play it while you are sleeping at medium volume. It should help the drivers. Walkman should be good in sound or at least, better than iPods(eh?) 

 

hope this help!

Not sure about FiiO but I like iBasso D7. I heard good stuff about E6 thought! If your budget is a bit tight now I suggest you to wait for a while! You do not have to pay to get good SQ! Like I said, use FLAC/ALAC music files instead of any others! This will greatly improve your HD439! Afterward, when you saved up a little, then only you plan for a new headphone or amp. 

 

*I used to hunt for amp, but the ALAC that I paid for, worth every cent! It last me till today* xD
