Sennheiser HD515

 

The HD515 is one of the lower points in Sennheiser's impressive array of headphones. Outclassed by lower models in the series, as well as cheaper pro...

Better than stock headphones, great soundstage

Boring sound, lacking mid definition, slightly uncomfortable

A headphone that will be a big improvement over most of your cheaper models, but one that is outclassed by many other models in this price range.

Sennheiser HD 515 Headphones

 

A great headphone for audiophiles

Rich sound which accentuates sound effects can be gained while using these headphones. The headphones are designed for extreme comfort, which allows you to wear it for hours on end

These headphones don't work too well with mp3 players. Since they are quite bulky, they are not the best choice to use while on the move

These headphones are designed to provide great comfort and even greater sound quality. The closed-back ear cups provide noise-isolation, which means that it will cancel out ambient noise. Sound effects on movies sound absolutely stupendous on these...

Sennheiser HD 515

 

They call it high-end headphones on a shoestring budget. Let's find out if it's true.

Excellent for gaming, Excellent soundstage performance, Good treble, 3m long cable, 6.3 mm and 3.5 mm jack

Incomplete mid-range reproduction, Lots of audio leakage to surroundings, Not comfortable to put on for long, Do not work well with many MP3 players
