Great, simply great is what comes to your mind when you hear your favourite songs on this one. The HD439 is the best Sennheiser you can buy for your home/ relaxation use.
This is how the songs sound:
ARMIN VAN BUUREN FEAT. JUSTINE SUISSA "BURNED WITH DESIRE"
Excellent clarity of vocals, brilliant bass which sounds pure and natural here. The English singer-songwriter, Justine Suissa would feel ecstatic to hear this sound. Please note that this does not produce some dirty bass/abnormal bass. The bass sounds like pure bass.
STONE TEMPLE PILOTS "PLUSH"
Its a pleasure to listen to this song by the American rock band, Stone Temple Pilots. Once again, you hear sounds you've never heard before on the HD203, HD449 or even many other good Sennheisers out there. The treble and bass sound well balanced. Excellent clarity overall. This headphone is the best headphone out there for Rock, Grunge, Alternative, Metal, Trance, Ambient Trance and Progressive genre.
GARETH EMERY FEAT LUCY SAUNDERS "SANCTUARY"
Once again the clarity of the music is just amazing, in fact better, much better than the AudioTechnica M50X. You will start loving these headphones as you keep using them.
Ayushmann Khurrana "PAANI DA RANG"
Love it! Just amazing. You hear clarity and more clarity that you always wanted to hear. The voice, instruments, bass is perfect. You cant ask for more.

You need an excellent sound source to get the most out of these headphones, maybe an iPod, Sony Xperia or a great mp3 player would do the job. This is one headphone with amazing bass experience, however this is not for bass-heads. The bass sounds true to the real sound, without any exaggeration. The headphone needs a good 50 hours of burn to get the real sound. Once there, you realize what the HD439 is all about.If you need anything better than this go for the Sennheiser HD598. Anything lower than the Sennheiser 598 wont even come close to this. The output noise sound isolation is very weak. At top volume in a flight even the third row behind you can enjoy your songs. The ambient noise cancellation is fairly ok but then this is not a headphone for outdoor use. Its a headphone that you would use in silent surroundings to really enjoy the music. That is where it excels. Many fail to get this point.
It might feel fragile but it is not that flimsy though I am using it with extreme care (lifting it and stretching the head band softly to wear, like handling a newborn..no kidding). Soft handling, Pull the jack and avoid pulling the wire to unplug the headphone etc will prolong the life of the product IMHO.
I have been listening it for some days now and it gets better after every hour of use. It seems it would shine better with the help of a headphone amp though it works quite well on my PC. I will definitely go for an amp in near future to exploit this headphone's full potential.
The ear pads are soft and comfortable for prolonged use. The shape of the HD 439 might feel weird for a first time user. It might feel like it's going to fall off if you move a lot and I suggest that you better don't move a lot with it on your head.
I've read about modifications to make HD 439's sound better but as of now I am pretty happy with the stock sound. All the frequencies are on satisfactory level making any need of mod irrelevant (to me).
At the moment, I am using my XB 600 on my mobile and HD 439 on my PC. Both are equally comfortable and I like them both equally for their distinct qualities.
After a few days,I started getting used to its sound. It plays classical music extremely well. You can hear all the components of music distinctly with excellent quality. I use it with my Lumia, vaio and iPod. With the precise sound reproduction of Sennheiser, I can clearly say the same music played worst in my Lumia and other two levelled off. If you are new to using a quality headphone, this would give you a never before experience.
PS. Make sure you hear only High quality music . >192kbps. And never listen to YouTube with this.
Comfort: You can keep this in your ears for a long time without much heating or even an itch.
These are a super comfy pair of cans and one can hardly tell if they're on. Amazing.
About the sound quality..... Straight out of the box, these sound good(not excellent). I left them to burn through the night at moderate volume and as I sit here writing this little review, I must say that these sound absolutely phenomenal. The bass is very prominent. Whoever said that these cans lack bass need to listen to better music. By better music I dont imply better files(which goes without saying), but better music(someone once said, music is like candy, you throw the wrappers(rappers) away). Everything seems just right on this set. It's got a warm sound signature and is purely eargasmic.
P.S: I am not using any headphone amp. Just plugging it into my Lenovo.
