sennheiser hd 439 vs ultrasone hfi 780

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

thoughs on which one are best? i like bass for dubstep linkin park but portable.

post #2 of 22

I enjoy my HD439s but i feel they are a bit laid back for dubstep, I would like to recommend Koss pro dj 100s; excellent bass and durability.

 

cannot comment on the ultrasones though. They are generally very respected for bass heavy music.

The HD439 have a light bass response, and they are not suited for fast songs (linkin park) in this case i easily recommend the ultrasone.

Are they comfortable to the point of wearing them for hours? Lots of reviews in amazon state that they get very uncomfortable

Also the headphones i need gotta do good overall in different genres (not clasic or jazz) so i dont want to purchase headphones only for bassheads it have to be very neutral but that u can feel the bass

Pro dj 100s fit that classification IMO, they are way more up front than 439s and work well with most genres

First i decide to go with the hd 439 but some folks said they dont do well with fast bass songs (linkin park) , then look at the hfi 780 and 70% of owners say they are very uncomfortable

Dj 100s are pretty comfy IMO

out of the two senn are obviously more comfortable, but i dont know how is the sound or the ultrasone compare to the senns,in my opinion is not worth it get a nice sounding headphones if they are not comfortable and getting pain from wearing them for even 2 hours.

I never get uncomfortable with the senns. I am also one of the people who doesn't get uncomfortable from DJ 100s with stock pads, they just push on my ears a bit and I get used to it. IMO pretty good, more comfy than the xb500s to me
