But to my brother:
You say hd 439 is good but isn't the hd 449 better? I thought the hd 449 was an upgrade to the hd 439? :-)
The HD449 pads are pleather and may need a new replace after 2-3years of use where as the HD439 pads are velour; it won't make your ears sweat and it's more comfortable, as for SQ,the HD439 have so slightly more bass (lower end of the FR), and it's slightly darker as well smily_headphones1.gif

They are pretty different to compare. The HD439s are more comfortable while the SRH-440s are more neutral however the HD439 have much better bass respond than the SRH-440 in terms of both depth and quantity. SRH-440 have better vocal while the HD439s' vocals are thrown backward in comparison. Soundstage and imaging the HD439 takes the lid.

Glad you enjoy the K550!
