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

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 Talk 35

(1/4)

The Talk 35 can get the job done, with good sound quality, noise cancellation, and battery life for the price. Its more conventional in-ear design coupled with a thin, removable ear hook may feel more secure than our other picks for a wider range of people with different ear shapes.

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 Talk 35

(1/1)

Have been using it for about a month, here is my thoughts: Pro: It is smaller than the picture. Light weight, very comfortable to wear. Fit on both ears. Gel is soft, I can wear it for a whole day, well, if battery can last that long

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 Talk 35

(1/3)

And if you listen to a lot of music or podcasts on that phone, with only the occasional call, you’re better off getting a good set of stereo Bluetooth earbuds or headphones with a mic.But if you have an older headset that doesn’t perform as well as you’d like, or if you’re dissatisfied with its features, upgrading to one of our picks will get you better sound quality, improved noise cancelling, and potentially longer range. If other people complain that they can’t hear you during phone calls, or if you’re unable to trigger Siri or Google Assistant from your older headset, it may be time to upgrade.

Warranty

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

Customer service is not amazing. Warranty is nothing special. Oh, and the stock cable is a cable. It's not great

Durability

Jabra Talk 35

(1/1)

I've contacted Jabra 3x requesting warranty support and gotten no-where. I don't recommend this project, it basically useless after 6 months. On other aspect is though the "egg" portion has a built in charger, if you leave it un-plugged the whole system is dead the next day. I don't recommend this one for regular use, but when it was new it fit well in my ear and was really clear
