Our Verdict 
These close fitting cans offer a wide, spacious sound, but music just doesn't flow freely through them

good detailing
Music doesn't flow freely

While some headphones can feel a little unstable when parked over your ears there are no such problems with the 440s.

They park snugly in place, though the firmness of the ear pads could be a little off-putting for some.

Sonically, the Beyerdynamics conjure up a surprisingly spacious and open sound.

They uncover detail well, and are strong at extracting treble nuances. But music doesn't flow as freely and fluidly – nor as dynamically – as it does with the best rivals
