Hey guys, I've been looking at the Sennheiser HD439 and HD449, and wanted to find the right one for me. I'm more into the rock, progressive type music, and was wondering which one you guys thought would suit me better. Thanks

Hi :D
 
I already bought a HD 439, but they will arrive only in Sunday

For me, the Velour pads of 439 is better suitable, and, if they are the improved version of 4x8 series,
I think the 439 have more bass, good with rock, etc... and the 449 have a more detailed, neutral sound, good with acoustics, for example.

I'm not good describing it, and I don't know too much to recommend a can to you, sorry =/

I hope someone can help you ^^

depends on the genre, but HD449 HD439 got no bass for my taste. Definitely not for R&B, hip hop, trance. For rock sennheiser usually have smooth warm & slow pace. I doubt it will keep up with your music
If you got jazz, audiophile song, pop, vocal, they wont dissapoint you
