For sound enthusiasts looking for an alternative to in-ears and larger open-headphones, the HD 239s are the answer.

The ‘open’ design offers a very lifelike, airy and natural sound experience. The listener can expect precision and balance throughout the frequency spectrum of sound. The soft earpads use a breathable fabric that contribute to the long-term wearability of the HD 239. Each earcup rotates flat for compact storage in a handy pouch.

I honestly wasn't sure what headphones to buy as I'm switching from my standard use of in-ear headphones to over head headphones. However I didn't want anything too large or bulky.

I thought about Dr Dre's headphones, the cheaper ones at £115 or similar. However the reviews for that were terrible and when I tried them in John Lewis they were nothing special.

So for me it came down to getting some nice sennheiser's as those are the best pair of in-ears I've ever owned. In John lewis the HD239's were £90. I refunded the gift from christmas, and then on Amazon bought a pair of HD238's (£35) and a pair of HD239's (£65), meaning I only spent £10 more and I wanted to see the difference between these headphones.

I discovered that Sennheiser have definitely got it RIGHT. They know how to make a good quality affordable pair of headphones. The HD238's were very good for their price, I thought there was going to be no difference at first, but there is definitely a clear difference in quality, which is brilliant because otherwise you could be paying £30 less for essentially the same pair of headphones. The bass and treble is clearer within the HD239's, showing the voice and every individual instrument slightly better resulting in and overall much better quality.

The one disadvantage which is obvious with both pairs (although slightly less so with the HD239's), is that if you like to listen to music loudly like me, you are going to disturb everyone around you as they are very clear and loud to everyone around you, for instance very disturbing if listening on a bus.

I have decided to use the HD238's because they are still superb, and I tend to destroy headphones when I use them, so when I do destroy them I can go onto the more expensive and better HD239's.

Sennheiser really know what they're doing when it comes to headphones, and as a headphone specialist they should. I have pairs of Sennheisers I've owned for years and years that are still going strong. The HD 239s continue in the company's tradition of high quality: they're well designed and well built.

The HD 239s are "optimised" for portable audio devices. This means the bass response has been cranked up, since iPods and smartphones, etc. are usually lacking in bass reproduction compared to larger audio systems. The HD 239s sound great with an iPod or similar device and, to encourage their use with portable players, they come with a nice storage pouch. They might sound a little too bassy for some people's tastes when connected to other audio sources though.

The HD 239s are worth considering if you're looking for a decent pair of headphones to replace your stock Apple earphones or another player's stock 'phones. They're comfortable, lightweight and great-sounding - plus they won't break the bank.

Sennheiser has its own name in audio, but one thing to be sure is that these headphones are on their bottom range.
Don't be fooled by the price tag for HD239, these are basically made with almost the same quality than the HD219, those are sold on prime for 35 pounds. Less than half price of the HD239.
The audio lines are so thin, they even look weak and I searched the web a little to find easily that lots people are complaining about these lines break after a few months even with care.

Comfort is not designed to fit big heads. I do have a big head, it's very tight, pads are ok but long wearing (like an hour or so) will result sqeezed feeling and uncomfortness. I've been into Bose's shop and tried a few model with similar sized pads, they feel a lot more comfort than these.

Other than the quality of the made and comfortness. People may argue the most important thing is the sound quality. Well, I can only say this: the HD239 cannot impress you unless you really turn the volume up. And keep in mind it's open-air design. It isn't the really same open air as other brands, it is so "open-air" even I try to keep the volume down to about half than my old open-air headphones, it is still quite a disturb to people around me, and they never mentioned to me that my old headphones were noisy before. There, you can image what it is like when I had these on with the volume to provide some punch.

Final words, don't buy these headphones, even spend the same money on a pair sony gives you better value. That said, I don't even like sony's audio products!

I am into HiFi and detailed accurate sound reproduction, and to me these headphones are anything but - so if you are looking for a neutral audiophile headphone type of experience with your iPod definitely look elsewhere. However the headphone output from the average iPod isn't the perfect analogue audio source either. So the tonal response of these Sennheiser HD239s has been modified to sound 'better' with a typical iPod headphone socket. Unfortunately to my ears these headphones sound bass heavy and give vocals a rather recessed quality that I don't really like. Clarity and sound quality certainly does improve if you significantly up the volume on these HD239s, but that tonal balance still remains, and I find I'm always choosing my other iPod headphones in preference, like my in-ear Radiopaq Rocks and Sennheiser OCX 880s, or better still Sennheiser PXC250 mk1s that fold for travel and include active noise suppression. I also tried the HD239s with iTunes on my PC ZxR Soundblaster and Arcam USB rPAC headphone ports and thought my £10 Philips Philips SBCHL145/10 Lightweight Headband Headphones sounded better for vocal clarity, so when Sennheiser say the HD239 sound is 'optimised for iPod' they clearly mean it - and in fact I do prefer the HD239s to the cheap Philips on my iPod, largely as the latter are too bass light. It's possible that the HD239's tonal balance also helps mask nasty MP3/AAC compression artifacts, but these aren't a problem for me as I buy audio on CDs and rip to ALAC Apple Lossless (highest sound quality) via iTunes, having loads of file storage space on my iPod 160Gb Classics. I listen to mostly rock, pop and occasionally folk/country-n-western, i.e.Read more ›
