Pro Produces a fun sound signature which is good for different genres of music
The sound that these headphones produce is not very detailed but is also quite fun and versatile. The mids are the star of the MHP 839’s sound signature. The mids are forward and with good clarity. This quality makes vocals and guitars sound really prominent, and gives the overall sound a distinctly warm feel. The bass is very good on these headphones. While not very forward, the bass is full, has good punch and comes off as quite natural. The top highs are rolled off, which may muddle some of the music’s details. However, this also gives these headphones a smooth sound, as there is little to no harshness. Overall, these headphones can work really well with practically all genres of music.
Pro Enhanced usage versatility thanks to the cable options available
The cables included in the package enhance these headphones usage versatility. Not only do you have a replacement cable ready should one break, but each cable is different from the other. One cable is thinner and shorter which is great for mobile use. The other cable on the other hand is longer and thicker which should work better when using the headphones indoors.
Con Feels cheap and flimsy
The MHP 839 has a lot of creaks, flex and is very lightweight which may give some users the impression that these headphones are flimsy and cheap. This can be attributed to the headphones' all plastic build and that the materials used are not of the best quality.
Con Pads can get warm pretty quickly
The ear pads of these headphones do provide ample cushioning, but they also trap heat, causing your ears to get warm really quick. The vinyl material used on the surface of the pads drastically minimize airflow to the ears. You may need to take these headphones off periodically so your ears and the area around them can cool down.
Con Can cause some ear or head discomfort due to the strong clamping force
The clamping force that these headphones have is pretty strong. While this can be a good thing as this helps to keep the headphones secure on the head, this can also cause a pinching feeling which may not make these headphones great for straight hours of use.
