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

In this general price range, consider the Plantronics BackBeat Go 810, the Marshall Mid Bluetooth, the less expensive Plantronics BackBeat Fit 500, or the in-ear JayBird X4. All of these models offer better audio performance, and some have higher IP ratings, making them better suited to exercise.

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.

First off these headphones sound well enough. There are definitely better sounding headphones and there are worse sounding headphones, but for working out they do the job. There is an ambient sound setting that allows outside sound to pass through so u can somewhat hear what is going on around you and it makes them sound much worse if you don't know it is turned on, but the setting is useful if you need to be able to hear a little bit like running where there are a lot of cars. In the exercise department they have worked well for me lifting, running, jump roping etc

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

I knew they were the ones for me. The comfort is outstanding, they sound really balanced,and the battery life is way beyond some more expensive brands.

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

Yes, the Be Aware feature let's nose in from outside, but it also adds static, which is horrible. The EQ customization is not nearly as significant as other JLAB products I've purchased. The ear cups fit perfectly though, and the flex band w/ no cable is a big bonus compared to other headphone I've owned.

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

I babied this device and did not abuse or drop them so I was surprised that the ear piece just came off like that. It became clear to me later that the screw that held them in needs to have some sore of thread sealer applied so that the screw does not come loose. So I contacted Amazon and there was not much they could do since the return period for the item had expired. They directed me to contact the company for warranty support

Durability

JLab Flex Sport

(1/2)

I had the item for just 2 months and only used them about 10 times. One day I went to the gym and when I put the headphones on the right earpiece fell off and a spring and screw flew out of them. I babied this device and did not abuse or drop them so I was surprised that the ear piece just came off like that. It became clear to me later that the screw that held them in needs to have some sore of thread sealer applied so that the screw does not come loose
