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.

Plantronics BackBeat GO 410

(1/4)

The Plantronics BackBeat Go 810 are decent wireless over-ears for most use cases. They have great audio reproduction and are suitable for a wide variety of music genres. They offer over 20 hours of continuous playback, which is great, and their control scheme is very responsive and easy to use. Unfortunately, their noise cancelling feature is disappointing and won’t perform as well as other ANC headphones in this price range

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

These are great blue tooth head phones with good comfort and exceptional sound and noise cancellation. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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

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

Plantronics BackBeat GO 410

(1/1)

Third issue: It took 10 months this time, but the buttons and button cover are problems again. This will be the third and final time I'm returning this headset to Plantronics. I've asked for a refund, but am not holding my breath Only positive is that the warranty period resets with the new headset. Since the buttons will likely keep tearing at least I'll get a new one every few months for the cost of return shipping
