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.

Poly Voyager 5200

(1/2)

ConclusionsPlantronics Voyager headsets have had excellent voice quality for years. If you have a previous Voyager model like the amazing Legend, you don't need to replace it with the 5200. But if you're shopping for a heavy-usage, indoor-outdoor Bluetooth headset right now, the Voyager 5200 is still the benchmark by which we judge the rest, and our Editors' Choice.

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

Poly Voyager 5200

(1/1)

I found it to be very light and comfortable, the top of the headset does not sink into my hair. Which is a plus, that is something I dislike about other headsets. Which mess up your hair, I like the placement of controls. You can flip the headset to the other way if its easier

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

Poly Voyager 5200

(1/2)

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.

Durability

Poly Voyager 5200

(1/1)

. For a top-brand, high-end earpiece that I paid $105 for, it's unacceptable for it to have become unusable after only 15 months. Gaming with it now, I've become completely unintelligible, and while trying to troubleshoot it with a friend, I was told that I was coming through, but I sounded like the girl from The Ring. I tried unpairing and reparing, updating the firmware, enabling HD audio, nothing made any difference
