Sennheiser HD600 review

 

A premium offering with great dynamics

Lively, broad dynamics ; Attractive and comfortable

Not the most detailed treble

The excellent dynamics and lively sound of this practical model can't quite match the detail of better headphones

Sennheiser HD 600 review

 

When Steve Guttenberg reviewed the Sennheiser HD 650 headphones , he rightfully called them "fit for a king"--while noting that they retail for a correspondingly princely sum of $500. Thankfully, the HD 650s aren't the only model in Sennheiser's...

Sennheiser's high-end open-air headphones deliver deep bass, luxuriously padded ear cups, and a replaceable cord for a more economical price than their flagship model.

Expensive; not the best solution for portable listening; gray and black plastic finish doesn't scream high end.

The Sennheiser HD 600 headphones are a good choice for home listening if you're willing to pay for high-quality sound.

Of all the headphone specialists, Sennheiser probably offers the broadest and most closely spaced range, with something for practically every conceivable application.

Brilliant mid and vocal sounds, Prominent strong bass

Clamping effect on some people's heads, Costly, Treble rolloff

A great all around headphone with a slightly warm sound that will suit some people, but the treble has a distinctive roll off and depending on your needs there may be cheaper alternatives.

Sennheiser HD 600 Headphone Review

 

It's not often that I review headphones as most of the models I've heard aren't much to write home about. However, upon speaking with Ivy Scull of HeadRoom, she sold me with a pretty convincing

Phenomenal fidelity ; Unparalleled comfort ; Works well with a variety of sources

Big and bulky ; Too nice for a travel companion

Good audio reproduction. ; Open and spacious sound quality. ; Stable and comfortable design.

Even though I have outed myself as a fan of closed headphones, that hasn't stopped me from thoroughly enjoying the Sennheiser HD 600s for the last few weeks. They are exceptional headphones and, in my opinion definitely worth the money, especially if...

Sennheiser HD600 Headphones

 

Reference sound quality that can’t be beat for the price. Sennheiser's reference headphones have been surpassed by the new HD650s, but the HD600 remain a real bargain. Exceptional build quality

Have been surpassed by the new HD650s. Slightly uncomfortable. Somewhat forward sounding

A reference pair of headphones that offer a true taste of high-end audio at a very affordable price and can be improved with a third party cable.
