I recently visited a Sam Ash to check out some headphones. The SRH880 I tried was NIB and they sounded incredible. The SRH440, on the other hand, sounded rather poor, but maybe how worn and beat up they were had something to do with it. I thought they would have similar sound signatures, but the SRH440 just didn't nearly have the same clarity and treble extension like the SRH880 and the mids sounded rather coarse? If that makes any sense. But maybe the SRH440 I tried really were damaged?
While the SRH880 had better overall build quality, it still felt cheap with the heavily plastic build. And to kind of echo sidewu and AgentTran, the SRH880's earpads were very comfortable. The SRH440's weren't nearly as soft and not as glasses-friendly.
