Price Point

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

These headphones sound great and are very affordable, but just know what you are getting. If you're looking for some great sounding headphones to listen to around your house using a headphone amp, these would be a great buy. But if you're looking for something to take to the gym, or use at work you'll probably want to look elsewhere. Pros - Excellent sound quality

Jabra Evolve2 40

(1/1)

TL;DR: Looking for on-ear headset with good speakers AND microphone for use at home for no more than 200€.

Sound Quality

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/3)

My wife disagrees, but I think movies sound punchier and more intimate on grado cans. And they have the side benefit of letting two people listen to something and just talk like nothing since they leak like mad. But again, all round? These babies, hands down.

Jabra Evolve2 40

(1/4)

Bill Callahan’s “Drover,” a track with far less deep bass in the mix, gives us a better sense of the headset's general sound signature. The drums on this track can sound overly thunderous on bass-forward headphones, but the drivers here deliver a pretty accurate depiction, with some subtly added body and roundness, but nothing that sounds thunderous. Callahan’s baritone vocals get plenty of low-mid richness matched with crisp high-mid presence. The acoustic strums also benefit from a crisp, bright higher-frequency response

Comfort

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/2)

All-day comfortable with ease (they can get a tiny bit warm with the alcantara pads in a hot room, but not even close to unacceptable) and utterly zero squeaks or creaks (looking at you, Audio Technica AD700's) The one, ONLY gripe I have with them is the nice cable they have is too short for anything other than a desktop amp or device RIGHT in front of you. BUT, it's replaceable, and lots of companies make cables for them. Side benefit is you can get a balanced cable for them, and if you get a BTR5 as well, that amp has a balanced output option. So they can sound EVEN BETTER

Jabra Evolve2 40

(1/3)

Available in black, the Evolve2 30 is a supra-aural (on-ear) stereo headset, with exceptionally comfortable, cushioned earpads. The underside of the headband is also generously padded, and somehow the entire frame weighs only 4.4 ounces. The earpads provide a notable degree of passive noise isolation, allowing for some peace and quiet while wearing them

Fit

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

It's not long enough for comfortable PC/ living room AV receiver use for me, so I ordered a replacement cable when I bought the headphone. The replacement cable is that red one that everybody else is buying. I clipped the "braided" part off, and now they're really cool looking red cables. They click really nicely into the headphones - better click than the stock cable

Jabra Evolve2 40

(1/3)

The sound is fantastic for voice communication, I would never use these for gaming, music or multimedia. The audio range is not good enough for those applications, it is great for voice. The microphone works beautifully and others can hear me clearly and crisply. To say that these are "passive" noise cancelling is laughable

Durability

Jabra Evolve2 40

(1/1)

You can hear everything going on around you. The ear pads are pretty comfortable, much more than a foam ear pad on standard headphones. I do need to pull these away from my ears every now and then to restore circulation and reduce soreness. Durability of the pad itself is in question, but I have not had these long enough to figure that out
