Sennheiser HD 4.40 BT, Over-Ear Wireless Bluetooth Headphones – Black : Good enough but sound could be better

Fantastic headphones great sound i use them as gym headphones and they stay on no trouble highly recommended. Have used them for films too and again very good sound. Just need to buy a case for them like i did.

I’ll admit that i’m quite fussy about earphones and did quite a bit of research before buying these. Needless to say, the research paid off – these are brilliant earphones for the price. Sound quality is excellent, good base and treble with no distortion. Sound reduction works – other people can’t hear your music, however you can still hear external noise slightly which i consider a good thing for safety’s sake. They fit over the head very comfortably and you don’t feel like you have them on; they are light – no pressure on the top of your head. They stay in place very well too. Fit well over ears, even with earrings in. Controls are easy to use and bluetooth was easy to set up. Battery life is fantastic and they also come with a cable should the battery expire so you can then use as a wired headphone. Protective case that’s provided is a bonus, and they fold well to go in your bag and/or pocket.

Excellent build quality, despite it being made of silicon and plastic it feels really sturdy. Base leaves a little bit to be desired but it is still satisfing for most people i would say. Great clarity in these headphones and the cushioning in the ear cups are very comfortable. Does a good job of blocking out noise despite not having noise cancelation. Only thing i would like to change is to have a little bit more base, but that’s just my personal preference.

I love the sound of these headphones – i am not particularly well versed in high quality audio but these sound amazing to me, i can really pick out the layers of the songs i listen to and the bass is very nice without being overwhelming like beats, etc. The pads are very soft and comfy but i can see how they may be a little tight on some peoples ears, they are a little on mine. The one thing i can give these headphones endless praise for is the battery life. I listen at around 50-75% volume for at least 2 or 3 hours a day, and the battery lasts between 7 and 10 days for me. For the price, i really don’t think there is gonna be a better option than these. My one criticism is that the headband padding is very insignificant, but the weight of the headphones means that you barely feel the headphones on your head anyway, so it’s not like it’s needed. Yes, they are all plastic, but sturdy as hell and the nice matte finish makes them look like they’re worth a lot more than the asking price.

These headphones work very well. They are comfortable and battery lasts for a very long time. The biggest downside for me is that the sound doesn’t feel as surround as other over-the-ear headphones. The volume works well but it feels more like loud sounds in my ear than a full great sound. The other thing is that i haven’t been able to connect them using the bluetooth to my laptop, but it works perfectly fine with my phone. Pros:- very comfortable and light- long lasting battery- good range from devicecons- the sound isn’t the best. – they come only with a bag so they can damage if you don’t buy a hard case.

Very good headphones in every aspect. Pretty good noise cancellation and isolation, high and bass is decent and they are quite loud too. One can only complain about the mic which is fairly terrible to say the least, hence the four star review. If you depend on it for phone calls, look elsewhere.

These earphones are very aesthetically pleasing, and feel pretty damn good over your head with only a small amount of paddingthe earpads however feel slightly small for my own ears, and due to the nature of earphones it gets stuffy with an hour or two of use. It does feel good but i do have to move them around from time to time. In terms of controls, the power button and volume buttons emit a satisfying click, the downside being an obnoxious beep being produced when the volume rocker is used. The forward-back button is a unique little slider which i actually like the concept of, once getting used to the positioning of it – slide forward to go to the next song, back to go to the previous etc. Furthermore this i believe is supposed to allow fastforwarding?. Doesn’t seem to work with spotify though. The downside of the product however is the internal microphone, which i wish i had the ability to disable as i’d rather use my own phone microphone, and have actually changed from using the headphones to phone directly in order to take a call. Not sure what else i could add to this review, but as a side note the nfc pairing is also pretty nifty, and despite having a few pairing problems with non-nfc devices i got there in the end. Durability, i’m unable to comment on as i haven’t had these earphones for incredibly long time. I wish i could’ve gotten the 4.

These sennheisers are very comfy, the sound is great particularly if you have an eq to adjust to your taste. The battery life is awesome, i tend to use these about 1 to 2 hours a day and one charge lasts me a week, i charge them on a sunday and they last all week, in fact, they’ve never run out of power, i just plug them in on a sunday ready for the week aheadone of the ear pads came off and was a sod to put back on, i super glued it back on as i couldn’t be bothered with the hassle of returning and ordering another pair.

  • Great Sound, Unbelievable Battery Life
  • Great sound quality.
  • Overall great pair of headphones.

Had these for almost a year now and they are by far the best headphones i’ve had. I needed a wireless pair to replace my hd201 and i trusted sennheiser so i went with these and i’m not disappointed. Quick summary (read below for full details)good things:-spectacular sound quality-very comfortable-long batter life-good controls for volume and playback-very little sound leakbad things:-gets warm in summer due to good seal-i don’t know how these perform with multiple devices-mic is sensitive?these headphones have a great, balanced sound signature with the perfect amount of bass. They work well with any type of music although i mainly listen to some instrumental and pop music. The battery life is excellent although i only use them for commuting – approximately 2 hours a day so doesn’t really need to be recharged often. Comfort is another strong point of these headphones. The amazingly soft earcups and the oval shape and good depth meant my ears didn’t touch the drivers and the seal was good enough to block out most train noise at around 70% volume. Also, the seal is good enough that only people next to you in a silent room with the headphones at 60% or greater volume will be able to hear the music. The controls for volume and playback are amazing because the sliding dial means you can also rewind or fast forward tracks. What i didn’t like/could be improved:the good fit and seal on the earcups also means they get really warm in the summer and are basically unusable unless you don’t sweat although this is a problem with probably all over ear designs.
