Sennheiser HD 560S review


Sennheiser promises ‘reference-grade' sound on a budget

Expansive, detailed presentation ; Comfortable design ; Solid build and finish

Beaten for verve and energy

The Sennheiser HD 560S offer an even and analytical listen, they’re just missing an extra ounce of energy and fun

Sennheiser HD 560S review


The HD 560S deal strictly in the facts - because, let's face it, sometimes ‘fun' is overrated.

Astute, revealing sound Light and comfortable Simple to use

Not the most entertaining (or tolerant) listen Plastics feel a bit unyielding Slightly leaky

If it’s insight you want, and absolutely crystal-clear understanding of a recording, the HD 560S make an awful lot of sense. If you’re just here to be entertained, though, you’ll need to look elsewhere.

Sennheiser HD560S review: Superb reference headphones


If you're looking for comfortable reference headphones that don't break the bank, Sennheiser's HD560S should be on your shopping list

Highly refined sound ; Very comfortable ; Spacious soundstage

Neutral sound won’t appeal to everyone ; Poor sound isolation

Sennheiser HD 560S Review


The Sennheiser HD 560S are wired open-back headphones meant for neutral listening. They deliver a well-balanced sound profile that should suit most musical genre...

Consistent audio delivery. Comfortable, relatively stable fit. Very well-balanced sound profile. Impressive stereo imaging performance.

High audio leakage. No included microphone. Terrible noise isolation. Wired-only connection limits versatility. No sound profile adjustment features. Bulky design. No on-board controls.

The Sennheiser HD 560S are great for neutral sound. While they're slightly lacking in low-bass, most mixes should still have adequate body and warmth. Vocals and lead instruments are present, detailed, and clear in the mix, and audio is delivered with...

Best headphones I've used


These headphones are absolutely brilliant. The sound is the best I've ever head. The cable is very long and comes with two jacks. Totally recommend.

Absolutely delighted!


I've had these for a couple of months now, and am in a position to pass some sort of judgement. Frankly, for the money, these headphones are superb. I do most of my music listening via Spotify Premium, on highest settings, or via Bandcamp. This is...
