Amazon.com Review

Sennheiser seals its reputation as the classiest name in headphones with the stunning HD600, a stylish and high-tech headphone that's exquisitely pleasing to listen to and nearly as pleasing to wear. A near-perfect mating of art and science, the HD600 uses an open, over-ear design to eliminate unwanted resonances and optimally position its large, dynamic drivers just outside your ears--so they work more like miniature speakers than traditional in-ear or against-ear drivers.

Granted, all this comes at a pretty hefty price for a headphone. But the lightweight HD600 represents one hefty value. It so far outshines other headphones in sound quality, build quality, and comfort that despite its price it's still a strong value.

Of course, with a headphone like this and a name like Sennheiser, it's the sound you're really after. With stand-alone loudspeakers, the goal is generally to provide balanced sound across as much of the audible sound spectrum as possible (roughly 20 to 20,000 Hz). High-frequency reproduction is easier than low, simply because low-frequency reproduction requires a speaker to move so much air. Speakers capable of rendering deep bass usually use large speaker cones--8 inches or more in diameter--to help move the necessary volume of air.

Headphones, of course, are restricted in the sizes of the drivers they can use. Being so much closer to your ears, the amount of air they need to move to convey bass frequencies is much smaller, but still a challenge for what are basically tiny speaker cones. And anyone who's listened to a lot of headphones can tell you, there's almost always a tradeoff in what a headphone driver is capable of. Some produce balanced overall sound with little in the way of bass; others aim for bass at the expense of natural-sounding midrange and coloration-free treble.

The Sennheiser HD600, we're here to tell you, manages--through its extremely high-grade parts and exquisite engineering--to bring home truly full-range sound with remarkable timbral balance. Rich, deep, effortless bass grounds the listening experience while the headphone's airy midrange and treble help render everything from acoustic bass to soprano saxophone and electric guitars with a haunting degree of realism.

The HD600 doesn't offer the lush midrange favored by tube-amplifier enthusiasts--tube fans may find the headphone somewhat bright and maybe even strident in tone. But the rest of us will revel in the expanse of crystalline detail and snare-snappy dynamics.

The exceptionally natural quality of the HD600's overall sound bears reiteration, since so many headphones with "fat" or even "slamming" bass response deliver the low-end goods with a degree of emphasis that, while pleasing to bass aficionados, grossly distorts the frequency balance, limiting the range of music and recordings that will sound good on those headphones.

How does Sennheiser do it? Through computer-optimized magnets--critical to driver operation--that minimize harmonic and intermodulation distortion, granting the HD600 its uncanny clarity and spaciousness. Furthermore, the headphone's advanced diaphragm design eliminates standing waves in the diaphragm material, preventing unwanted emphasis at otherwise resonant frequencies.

As good as this headphone is, however, we don't recommend it to those seeking a stellar headphone for portable use. While this unit is capable of amazing sound, its best performance requires more amplifier power than most portable devices can muster. The HD600 owes its strength in part to its large drivers, which just can't be moved as easily as those in smaller headphones.

Furthermore, the HD600's open-ear design means that sounds pass easily into and out of these headphones, which would in all likelihood prove irritating to you and to those around you in libraries, on buses, and even at the office. These are only our suggestions, however; the fact is your MP3s will probably never sound better than when you're playing them over this headset.

We'll just leave you with one last suggestion, then: if you're after the best-sounding, most comfortable audiophile headphones you can buy at anything resembling a real-world price, look no further than Sennheiser's HD600. --Michael Mikesell

Pros:

  • Natural timbral balance
  • Extremely detailed presentation
  • Excellent bass extension
  • Produces a spacious, wider-than-your-head soundstage
  • Terrifically comfortable

Cons:

  • Slightly bright treble for some tastes

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Deal -- Serious sound
Very clear across the spectrum, thrives on my Klipsch computer speakers' headphone amp, makes iPod tunes sound real good and I don't mind being wired to my work stations.Really marvellous sound.And for 56% off a helluva deal!

5-0 out of 5 stars How My Ears Could Live Without These!
I love to listen music everyday! When I come to school or work morning I usually listen music with stereo headpnones. My own headpones are cheap and not good. One day, I tried my friend Factory Reconditioned Sennheiser HD600 Over-the-Ear Open Hi-Fi Professional Stereo Headphones. I couldn't believe my ears! Sound was so excelent, real and pure! How they have ever succeeded to make so perfect headphones. Your engineers must be genious! These headphones are comfortably to wear and use! My friend who is a hifi-man also loves these and it means that these should almost best headphones what you can get.

5-0 out of 5 stars awesome
I was really excited to see these HD600s at $210, so much so that I didn't notice the "Reconditioned" part.Oh well.. aside from the a UPC sticker on the product's box with a "REFURBISHED" label on it, I can't tell these apart from new.These headphones are everything that the new ones are, which is to say that they're fantastic.They look good, are lightweight and amazingly comfortable, and above all, they sound awesome--worth every penny. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Cans
These are excellent headphones, especially for the price I paid - I feel I got much more for my money that I would expect at this price, especially since lots of other name brand headphones are in a similar price range.

I listen to CDs while I work often using my computer's CD-ROM. I never realized audio CDs sounded so good! I always thought my soundcard was weak, but it must've been the old headphones I used to have.

The highs are high, the bass is loud without being obtrusive - all in all, I'd say these headphones give a very 'honest' sound, and that's a great thing.

I find them very comfortable, even for long periods of time. They're light, but can get a little sticky after an hour or two.

Highly recommended.

** Just a word of warning: I've had a few people tell me at work that the sound from these leaks pretty badly... not that I mind of course, but your colleagues could get a little irritated, so beware! **

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good sound, lightweight, and easy to drive...
I was looking for a good set of headphones for my portable MiniDisc player. After doing some research, I decided to try the HD 497's. Overall, I found them to be a very good headphone for the money. They are very efficient and even with the low output from my Sony MiniDisc player, I found that turning the volume up half way was enough to produce sound at moderate levels. I listen to mostly jazz and vocals, so bass is not as critical for me- but I did try out some dance music with lots of bass, and found that these phone have quite a bit of bass. Overall, when compared to my HD600's (Sennheiser's most highly praised headphones), I'd say these give you about 75% of the performance at 30% of the price! Bass could be a little better controlled and a little deeper, and vocals don't have the pinpoint imaging of higher cost headphones, but the sound is still very enjoyable.

In terms of ergonomics, these headphones do hurt my ears a bit. Although the padded ears make it semi-comfortable for me, I have large ears and the left phone presses against the cartilage about a half inch above my earlobe. Not a sharp pain, but a dull pain more like a bruise and gets a bit irritating after a about 30-45 minutes of use. I think this may be an issue with me because open headphones(with the sponge type earpads that rest on your ears) irritate the same part of my ear as well. Also, since I use only for portable listening, the 9' cord is too long for a portable use and needs to be tied up.

So here is how I would rate:

Comfort- 6/10- comfortable except for the one sore spot for me
Sound- 8/10- decent bass and mids- not bright like some other headphones at this price
Weight- 10/10- very lightweight
Efficiency- 10/10- more efficient that any of the Sony or Koss headpones I've tried.
Quality- 10/10- seem to be well built and well designed
Value- 10/10- best sounding phones I've tried at this price point

4-0 out of 5 stars Quality phones, fairly valued
One of the charms of headphones is that they're a lazy person's no-brainer technology. No programming, digital settings, or instructions are necessary to using, benefitting from, and evaluating the product. Consequently, I now have along with broad experience in cans more of them than I require. The only pair I've been absolutely and completely satisfied with are the Sennheiser PX100's, which can be transported safely in a back pocket and worn and enjoyed interminably. But they do require careful folding and storing, and I thought the top-rated (by Cnet) HD-497's would be handier for my studio work at the radio station.

A few observations about comfort. They're light enough but also just a trifle tight--something you certainly notice after the first hour of wearing them. Any of these phones that sit on the edges of your ears are likely to produce heat and sweat after a limited amount of time. This is as true of the 497's as of my heavier Sony MDR V-600's. For extended listening, the best bets are extremely lightweight phones like the PX100's, which don't sit on the "rim" of the ear, or phones that completely encircle the ear. I've got some heavy, loose-fitting Panasonic RP-HT660's that can be worn for hours because the weight is on your head, not your ears.

I can't speak to the durability factor of the HD-497's, though I'm somewhat surprised to see how tightly-fitting the detachable speaker wires are. Whether they would save you a broken set of headphones in the event of tripping on the cord (I've lost one pair that way) remains to be seen. Also, I've discovered no shorter wires made available by Sennheiser, so the detachability factor appears to be no more than a slight advantage. As for convenience, these phones can't be folded and stored in a little storage bag, like many of their larger competitors, so I wouldn't judge them to be good travelers.

As for the most important consideration, they sound great. Adequate bass (with no sense of artificial "boost," like the more expensive Sony's) and clear, brilliant highs (discernibly brighter than those of the Sony V-600's). They're a tad more efficient (louder) than the PX-100's, and they tend to bring mid-range instruments--the piano, for example--more forward in the mix. Indeed, the sound is transparent, clear and crystalline. Still, I almost prefer the more democratic balance of the PX-100's, which place you mid-center instead of front-center in the concert hall. The HD-497's are great for shorter listening episodes, but for going the distance, give me the PX-100's any day. (They're also 25% less expensive. For that matter, the Sony CD-180's, at one-quarter of the price, compare quite favorably in every respect with the HD-497's, with diminished treble being the major difference.)

5-0 out of 5 stars The perfect headphones.
These headphones are worth beyond their cost.
They have excellent sound. Very clear.
They are incredibly comfortable. For someone who's had trouble finding comfortable headphones, I can wear these for hours and hours without any discomfort.
I have been through some tough scrapes with these headphones. Both ear pieces pop out of the overhead strap, but they pop right back in. The ear pads also come off, but pop right back on. Just tonight, I noticed that even the wires connecting to each ear piece come out. The wires have tiny jacks--you wouldn't even notice if they didn't come out!

These headphones are well-made, comfortable, and have great sound. The only problem I can think of is that they don't keep out background sounds very well.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great sound, great price, but durability?
I got these for Christmas in 2002. They far surpassed, in sound quality, any headphones I had ever donned. The price had been reasonable and they were very comfortable. About a month ago, however, the left earpiece pad fell off; hardly a week later, the sound started flickering in that half of the headphones, and a few days later I had to spend 10 minutes adjusting the cord for both ears to play, only to be shaken and restart. Hopefully yours will be more durable. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars great headphones for the price
Firstly, my expectations: I am a casual music listener. I listen to lots of MP3s and I buy the CDs of albums I really like. I wanted a pair of headphones for my apartment because I don't want to bother my roommates with my sometimes strange music tastes.

Secondly, the results: All around, I love these headphones and would buy them again in a second. They fit my expectations -exactly-. I was a little worried about how certain individuals complained about the small size of these headphones. I adjusted these 202s to fit me perfectly (I can set them to be much looser). I'm using them right now, with glasses, even, with no issues. I can wear them for hours very comfortable.

As for the actual sound quality, these are great as well. Although there might not be as much bass as a speaker set (I had a 3-piece set with a subwoofer), the sound is actually much cleaner and crisp than my (and my roomate's) 3-piece speaker set.

So, in all, I am a very satisfied customer. The cord is pretty long (which was important to me), and I can't really find anything wrong with them.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for the money
Got these to use with my iPod as the earbud phones that come with it fall out of my ears with any motion and they don't filter out ambient noise for not-so-quiet environs (gym, airplane, etc.). Enter the HD 202s: first, these are not truly circumaural; I have average-size ears and the pads partially rest on them--fortunately with no discomfort. The phones are fairly light but do feel a bit tight at first (4 3/8 hat size); they do loosen up with some stretching. Construction seems quite solid for this price with good padding around ears and underneath the top of the headband; overall a pretty good fit. As for the sound, they definitely have much better bass than any earbud phones I've used but then one would be very disappointed if they didn't. The midrange and highs seem a tad muffled, especially when compared with much more expensive headphones. But at less than thirty dollars, I can't legitimately complain about their lack of audiophile crispness. My iPod has no trouble driving them either (their impedance is just 32 ohms). Overall, I'm quite satisfied for the money I spent and doubt I could have purchased a superior pair of closed headphones (or otherwise) in the same price range. You won't be blown away by them but you probably won't be disappointed either.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Headphones for the Price
These headphones do a very good job in pumping extremely low bass and it doesn't start getting fuzzy like other headphones. Overall, the sound quality is good. The only problem i have with these headphones is the long cord and the relatively big beltclip.. but these are some good headphones for the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars great deal!
These headphones do a great job of blocking outside noise. I ride the Chicago CTA's Elevated lines daily and use these headphones for my daily commute. Not only do the 202's muffle the train noise, they sound *great.* You can't beat them for the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally
Ordered the PX-200s -- great design, zero bass, even after break-in. Then ordered a pair of Sony earbuds -- flat sounds, worse than my Apple ipod standard issues. Then I ordered these. They were the cheapest of the three and by far the best. Very even sound, though I have to reduce the bass on my EQ for my taste. Though I'm sure there are better headphones out there, I can't imagine anybody being disappointed with these for the price. One cavet: These are not suitable for portable use and are bigger than they look in the photo. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Extremely disappointed
I lived in Europe in 2003 and purchased a pair of Sennheiser wireless headphones there that I really liked--they were a little more expensive than this pair, but worked great. Unfortunately, they worked on 220V, and I didn't really have room anyhow, so sold them when I moved back to the US in 2004. I bought these as a replacement, but they were NO replacement!

Here's the problems I encountered:

(a) No RCA->mini plug adapter is included, as another reviewer states. Funnily enough, the box DOES say it is included! Who has RCA jacks for headphones? If anything the default should be a mini-plug, with an included adapter to RCAs. (Scratching head...)

(b) Interference. Always present. Even from 10 feet away. Moving around helps, but you end up having to hold your head in the "perfect" position.... not feasible. My old pair worked great, didn't have this stupid manual tuning knob these do, and had almost no interference (until I got a significant distance away).

(c) Standard NiMH batteries are included, BUT with a caveat. This is a good thing in general, because my old set came with 2 batteries, but they were 'custom' and probably not ideal in that regard (but you could charge 1 set while listening; you can't do that with these!). The caveat is, they included the absolute cheapest nimh battieries they could find, GP 600mAHs. If you DO buy this, make sure to replace those with some 1500mAH+ ones (that should only cost a few bucks).

(d) The on-hook charging is picky. If you adjust the headphones to make them larger (pulling down the ear parts), sometimes it won't charge when it goes back on the hook. How silly is that?? It shouldn't be finicky. The older ones I had also had problems with engaging the charge mechanism when put on-hook, and it was an ENTIRELY different design. So, this is the SECOND design Sennheiser has screwed up. (If you don't adjust the size, it works fine though. So you'd better have a small head.)

(e) Probably the worst thing: Auto-shutoff. Hey! A great feature right? The base station shuts itself off if it doesn't sense audio for a while... for example, if you pause a DVD or TV, to go to the bathroom, or whatever. When you come back, you'll notice the base station has autoshutoff, but the headphones haven't, so they will be squealing SUPER LOUDLY since there is no signal coming from the transmitter. Brilliant! I bet if you fall asleep during a DVD without music on the menu, it would return to the menu, transmitter shuts off, and I wouldn't be surprised if you could get hearing damage from this "feature".

I'd give it 0 stars if I could. I won't be buying another Sennheiser product (I owned the previous wireless pair, I own a noise-canceling pair that I'm pretty happy with, and I have a 80s-era wired pair in storage somewhere). None of them have been perfectly designed, but the others at least had good sound quality to make up for it. This product failed on every account, and convinced me that their designs just aren't worth "putting up with" for the sound quality. I'll seek out another manufacturer.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK headphones, but not what I was looking for...
This was my first set of wireless headphones. I've been looking for a while for a set to use at the computer because I dislike the wires running all over from my current headphones. I would say that these headphones are OK, but not great.

Pros:
> I'm no audiophile, but the sound was pretty good to me. Better than my cheapo corded headphones.
> The "hook" charging system is nice, don't have to muck with some tiny connector to make sure it's charging, just drop them on the hook.

Cons:
> My main gripe is that when there is no music playing you can hear a constant low hiss. I tried all three frequencies to no avail. Maybe this was due to interference in my home? Don't know for sure.

>The headphones come with stereo "RCA"-type output jacks, not a headphone jack. This would probably be nice if you're using it for a home stereo but my computer only has headphone jacks so I had to buy some adapters.

> I found the headphones to be somewhat uncomfortable. I have a somewhat large head (hat size ~7 5/8) but after about 1/2 hour or so these weren't very comfy.

Overall these are decent headphones, just not what I'm looking for.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Sound, Great Price
I've only had this headset for about a week, but I've been able to listen to it quite a bit, and so far, I like what I hear. It took only five minutes to set up, and when I first turned it on, I was amazed how clear the sound was, especially for wireless. I was able to hear quieter parts of my favorite songs, which on my computer speakers I was never able to hear. The only bad part about this headset is that you can't go too far from the receiver without hearing loud clicks and static. I went outside no more than 150 feet from the receiver and I could barely even hear the music over the static. Overall, I'd say buy this headset if you are planning on staying within 50 feet or so of the music source the majority of the time you would use the headset. When you are close to the receiver, the sound quality is great, especially when you look at how cheap this headset is compared to other similar headsets. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Worth the price
After reading other negative reviews of these headphones I have concluded that many people have no clue what good music sounds like.
For starters most walkmans, portable cd players, and portable mp3 players have barely enough power to drive the junky headphones that they come with. Buying an expensive set of headphones isn't going to magically transform a piece-of-junk player into a beautiful music machine. Most portable players will greatly benefit from a headphone amp.
Secondly even with an adequate player, amp, and headphones many people still don't know what good music sounds like. Overblown bass that drowns out mids and highs is something that should be avoided, not sought after.
In my opinion the frequency reproduction of these headphones is very good for the price. I think the bass is very good. I just don't know what some people expect.
They are tight fitting but not uncomfortable per se. After extended periods of listening it is a relief to have them off for a while but they are not painful. This is the price you pay though if you want well sealed headphones. Without playing any music they block out a great deal of sound. With the volume turned up it's darn near impossible to hear the phone, doorbell, someone yelling at you etc.

4-0 out of 5 stars High quality German headphones for a reasonable price
I've owned various Sony and Pioneer DJ headphones. These are the most comfortable to wear, so far. A word of caution, these headphones faithfully reproduce the music. Meaning the frequency is flat - which is great! There is no discoloration, no unnecessary highs and lows. Why is this important? It will help you evaluate the real quality of your muisc source. You do your own adjustment by adding the necessary equalization setting.

Sidenote: if you're looking for headphones to compliment your portable music equipment, then get the excellent Sony DJ or Bose Triport headphones which will give you colored music reproduction - extra/artificial bass and treble response. I have nothing against them, I think they are great for those needs. The only problem is that their ear pads are uncomfortable for extended use.

These Senn headphones require a little bit more power to drive the speakers, so they are actualy best used for connecting to home systems that have amplification and equalization settings. I still use this for my Sony CD walkman, although I would have to crank up the volume.

The plus side, parts are easily replaceable - ear pads, head pads and cord. You don't have to be afraid in using and abusing them. The German-engineered speakers (the reason you are purchasing the Sennheisers in the first place) will last.

I have to warn you that the headphones will feel tight and sound bland when you first use them right out of the box. Use them constantly for a week or two and it will feel comfortable to your head. There is nothing rubbing against your ears to make you want to take it out. The environment attenuation is so great that you should NOT use it if you expect to be disturbed - phone call, door bell, etc.

Why 4 stars? Better design and material should be used to make it look and feel more classy, than plastic.

These are still made in Europe, so the price you are paying for is very reasonable especially when purchased from Amazon with the free shipping and tax.

One last word of advice, no matter what we all say the final decision will be at the hands (or heads) of the listener. So try all the brands at your local electronics store and don't be pressured into getting one without uisng them for an extended period. Your head, ears and pocket will thank you later.

2-0 out of 5 stars Big, heavy & uncomfortable
I bought these headphones and they are huge. They feel like your wearing a brick. They sound decent but should sound much better for the price they are sold at. I think that these headphones were not made to the greatest standards by a company who normally makes high quality headphones. They do have an upside, they are durable and can withstand a beating aka traveling. They play audio at at good intrevals from high, medium and low without being scratchy or too heavy on the bass. For these to sound good, you do need a high quality audio source, mp3 players might not cut it, and computers may sound amplified through these headsets. The ear cups are full cups and quiet but due to air and sound mixes they give ear fatigue fast. So if you have time pick what you want, but not these. Others sound better.

2-0 out of 5 stars mediocre sound, poorly constructed, very uncomfortable
When new, these headphones crush your head to such an extent that wearing them for more than a half hour is a real test of will. After a few months the cheap, flimsy plastic headband will splinter apart with spider-webbed cracks and this will make them more comfortable until the headband completely disintegrates. Also these are overpowered with bass -- much more so than my old sony v600 (which I could wear for 4+ hours in perfect comfort, and which I believe had significantly more accurate sound reproduction, despite what the anal-retentive "audiophiles" claim). At half the price these would be a ripoff. You don't realize how important comfort is until you don't have it.

5-0 out of 5 stars I didn't know music could sound so good
To be sure I'm no audiophile. In the past I've only been casually interested in listening to music. I bought these because I wanted headphones to shut out the noise while listening to music and audio books while traveling. Was I ever in for a surprise when I plugged them into my pc. Using them with my pc immediately exposed all the flaws of my sound card. So I upgraded that to one of the new soundblaster 24 bit cards. Not to be overly dramatic, for me the resulting sound has been life changing. The sound (amplified by an average quality amplifier) is much, much better than anything I have ever owned, and possibly anything I've ever listened to, and I literally can't get enough. I've even started listening to mostly classical music, music that I never had much appreciation for before. The only downside is that now that I have had my ears opened, so to speak, I'm totally hooked and want more, more, MORE. Now I want to see what a pair of the hd-600's sound like. And I probably want to get the upgraded cable and a better amp. Maybe I'll even listen to some vinyl!

By the way, I've had the 280's a few months now and they seem to be very sturdy. Also yes they do improve after breaking in. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The Sennheiser HD590 Prestige is a full-size headphone designed for high sonic performance. Audiophile-grade components, lightweight voice coils, Duofol membranes, an open-ear design, and a frequency response of 12 to 38,000 Hz add up to music that's stunningly alive--be it classical, jazz, or rock. In addition, the HD590 works beautifully with both home and personal stereos, offering deep, natural bass without the need for bass boost equalization.

The HD590 features large-surface Duofol diaphragms--special diaphragms consisting of two foils welded together to reduce standing waves (buildups at specific frequencies that unfavorably color the sound) to an absolute minimum. A new transducer orientation ensures better localization of sounds for a wide, spacious sound stage and generally natural sound reproduction.

A 10-foot OFC (oxygen-free copper) cord connects to the left earpiece only, reducing tangles and giving you room to roam. The 0.25-inch phone jack also comes with a miniplug adapter, making the HD 590 compatible with any size headphone jack. The HD590's innovative BioNetic headband is key to its amazingly light weight. This headphone is designed to adapt to the shape of your head, and the adjustable band rides on an airy, plastic cushion for added comfort.

The HD590 is a factory refurbished product, meaning it was returned to the manufacturer and restored to like-new condition. The product comes with a two-year warranty on parts and labor.

5-0 out of 5 stars Watch for amazon's $120 deals - they're an amazing bargain!
The Sennheiser HD590 is something of a bastard child among headphones. Disliked by audiophiles and passed over in favor of the newer HD555 and HD595, unheard of by consumers who flock to the terrible Bose Triports and Sony MDR-V700's, the HD590's have fallen out of favor with the audio community, in one way or another.

That is a shame. These are some damn fine phones. Amazon's occasional $120 deals on them are absolutely fantastic - you will not find better sounding headphones for this much money.

The HD590's offer a slightly bright, very detailed sound, with a very strong, punchy bass. Their mids are slightly recessed (i.e. quieter and more distant than the bass and treble), and it is for this reason that audiophiles bash them. I don't understand this, especially since the very same audiophiles praise the Beyerdynamic DT770's, which are much more recessed in the mids and brighter in the treble.

Their soundstage is very good. They are very three-dimensional sounding with the right recordings, portraying accurately the acoustic characteristics of the recording venue. If you have never heard hi-fi headphones before, you will be amazed at how these portray the spatial localization of each and every sound. They are also very detailed, especially in the treble. You will hear sounds in your recordings that you've never heard before.

These headphones can be driven by powerful sources without an amplifier, but portable devices such as iPods and portable CD players will be hard-pressed to drive them. I would recommend these headphones for home use with stationary audio systems. They will not truly come to life, however, until you add a headphone amplifier. There are many amplifiers available, and I will not list the multitude of different models here. This, perhaps, is their biggest drawback. They really do need a lot of power.

They're also very, very comfortable. They're light, they have a firm grip on your head, but because the pads are very cushy and deep, the grip never becomes bothersome. Instead, they just seem to disappear, like a pair of snug, comfy earmuffs. I've worn these for 10 hours straight, and I didn't notice that I have them on after 30 minutes. They're also very durable, even though they're largely built out of plastic.

The downsides? At $120, I really can't find any. At $150 or the regular asking price, I would say that they're a bit too bright and too recessed in the midrange, and there are other options which may be slightly better. But if you see one of Amazon's $120 deals pop up, grab these immediately! Your ears will not regret it.

Lastly, do keep in mind that these are open headphones. They will not isolate you from the outside world, and they will leak sound everywhere. People in the same room with you will definitely hear what you're playing. This isn't a downside of these headphones specifically, but a downside of open headphones in general.

I use these with my computer, in combination with a Chaintech AV-710 sound card, a 3' Kimber RCA-mini cable, and a Meier Audio Porta Corda Mk II headphone amplifier. All together, this makes for a very nice computer system. For serious listening, I prefer my Stax SR-4040 electrostatic system, but it's not really a fair comparison =D

Rating: A very solid 5 stars at $120. 4 stars at the retail price.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing...
I've owned a pair of Grado SR-80's now for a few years.Over time however I've listened to them less and less due to the fact that after about and hour or two my ears are sore.For whatever reason I just haven't realized that there were alternatives out there so when I saw these reconditioned cans I pulled the trigger.The sound is amazing and I'm finding that with time they're sounding better.The high's are amazingly unobtrusive and the bass is..well..awesome.For the money I simply can't imagine anyone would find anything better anywhere.I now listen to music a lot more and am enjoying relistening to music that I had forgotten I enjoyed so much.Buy them...no regreats.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Darn Good
Hey people, if you have any reservations about buying this product because it is reconditioned, worry not. I got mine the other day and there's absolutely no evidence of them ever having been used/touched in any way. And they sound real nice. I would give them 4.5 stars because they tend to get a bit bright when played at high volumes, but at normal (non-deafening) levels, they sound wonderful (Esp. with acoustic-type music). I've just come to expect god-like quality from any piece of audio equipment I purchase. They work pretty well with iPod too.... you just need to have the volume pretty high. Oh, and these suckers are VERY comfortable. Is there better out there? Maybe, but for (...), you can't really go wrong here (when purchasing an iPod, I listened to those (...) Bose triports they're trying to sell, and they sounded/felt like total (...) in comparison to the 590's). Hell, you can probably sell them for about the same price you pay here.So, if you've never heard a good stereo, give youself a treat and buy these, they're probably the cheapest way into high fidelity that I know of. Oh, and if you give these a try, you may want to give 'em a few days before you really judge them. Although I've always been skeptical of this "breaking in" of audio equipment, I seem to like the sound better a week after getting them (~40 hrs use). Who knows, maybe they're just "really growing on me," to quote the Darkness (Hey, what's a review without a Darkness quote anyways?). Enjoy.

5-0 out of 5 stars True Audiophile Phones
Sennheiser is known for audiophile headphones, and microphones. Their vintage mikes are true collectors items, and chances are that your favorite crooners were recorded with sennheiser mikes. The 590's are almost identical to the top of the line 600's. I own both the 590 and grado headphones, and IMHO the sennheisers blow away the grado. The high and mid range are especially transparent and natural sounding, the bass clean, tight and not overwhelming. Great all around choice. They are of lower efficency than cheap phones, so you need a relatively high ouput device or a separate headphone amplifier to realize their full potential. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best headset around
I am using this headset for gaming, music and watching movies and if satisfies all my needs. This is a high-quality sound product, designed smart and with superb technology inside.

The headphones sound very good, the sound is a tad off perfect, but most people won't hear any difference between these and $1000+ studio speakers. The bass is low, deep and energetic, the highs are sharp, crisp and very detectable, the midtones are almost identical to the real sounds.

The noise-cancelling mic is very good, my online buddies in Unreal Tournament 2004 kept saying how well I sounded over voice chat, my voice was like in real life, crystal clear and no ambient noise at all. Great!

Ergonomics are very well done, the headset doesn't bother you, even when playing for a few hours. The long cable is a great idea, it's so refreshing to be able to stand up and grab something three feet away from your seat and not feel your headset cable pull you back like a dog leash. The clip-on volume control/mic mute is also a very smart addition.

These headphones aren't cheap, but well worth the price. This is a great headset for serious gamers, the only (very minor) issue that I can see as negative is the fact the headphones don't cancel noise, so if you turn up the volume above 80% (abnormal level) others can hear the sound coming out of them.

PC150 is the only way to go for serious gamers looking for a high-fidelity headset.

4-0 out of 5 stars Noise cancelling mic, not speakers!
Overall these are very good headphones. I'm no audiophile but *I* like the sound quality. It's not too hard to make the bass distort on these if you turn up the volume and bass in WinAmp. However I've found that if you don't turn up the equalizer's bass much at all, the bass on these headphones really is well reproduced. Just don't overdo it on the equalizer, and the headphones will take care of replicating the bass just fine.

The microphone seems very solid and well constructed, as does the whole headset. The microphone's audio quality on TeamSpeak so far as I've heard from my friends hearing me, leaves nothing to be desired. The microphone has a wide swing range so that you can swing it out of the way completely or position it in ideal relationship to your mouth.

At first when I bought these headphones they hurt my left ear quite a bit after about an hour of wearing them. After poking at the headphones a little bit I noticed that the left earpiece wasn't swivelling like the right earpiece. This was causing the headphone to press my ear back to my head, as the headphones have quite a snug fit. After some very strong "wiggling" on the left earpiece I heard a "snap" and the earpiece began to move freely (like the right.) Annoying that I had to do this, but the headphones no longer hurt my ear and really are quite comfortable (the most comfortable mid-size headphones I've owned.) So I'm happy!

Amazon's labelling of this product is a little misleading. It is not the headset that is noise cancelling, but the microphone. The headset is just a normal binaural headset. However, the noise cancelling microphone will be much appreciated by your TeamSpeak / VOIP friends!

The only gripe I have about this headset is that the inline volume control seems to dim the volume more out of the left ear than the right. This is a *slight* difference and only the most sensitive ears can hear it, but it is definitely there. For me, this makes the inline volume control only really useful for lowering the volume so that I can hear things going on around me. This is nice at work, where I have to talk to cooworkers throughout the day. In my opinion a headset in this price range should really have the impedence on inline volume figured out perfectly, but hey -- you can't have everything, especially not at this price!

That said, the inline mic mute works like a charm ;-)

Overall I am very satisfied with the PC150.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a deal!
I was looking for a good headset to use on my PC. I had a real cheap one, but everyone was always saying how horrible my mic was. Not only that, but the earphones sounded horrible. I did some reasearch and saw allot of positive reviews on this headset. I'm glad I listened, becuase it's great. The sound in the earphones are amazing. Not only that, but they're real comfortable too. When you're not using the mic, it retracts out of your way. Excellent product!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Impressed
These headphones are everything I could expect. They have come with 100% satisfaction.

I am a gamer first and foremost, and in games, these cans impress. Upgrading from a broken $30 dollar set from radioshack, these sennheisers are legions better than I can remember. Sounds are crisper, bass clearer, and highs aren't too bright. Directional sound is also a big plus. I am able to guesstimate where my opponents are and sometimes wall them in CS =).

For music, these guys blow me away. Tool is my band, and for one I can hear Danny Carrey in the background on the hi hat, and I am able to distinguish between the beats. Not until I had these headphones did I realize the complexity of some of the background music, as before I had only heard it as a sludge of noise (comparatively speaking).

For ~$60, I feel I have more than gotten my money's worth. Amazon got the shipment through to me very quickly, and even with Mega-ghetto shipping. Packging was great. 100% impressed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Overall Best Headset
I use this headset for Gaming.. and anything else that fits my needs, I haven't found anything better than this. If you are going to use this for something other than Gaming or for Business, I advise you to downgrade to an alternative Sennheiser PC model. This headset was designed for Gaming/Business work mostly, in my opinion. One con that some people have problems with is that the headset doesn't fully cover your ears, it just hugs the side of your ears. There are no Cons that I can think of right now. If you're wanting/needing the best, here it is. Enjoy :P. Also it has a lot of cushioning so it's like having a pillow around your head. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Its all about your level of expectation.....
If you're expecting to buy these and cancel ALL outside noises, then you need NOT apply.The PXC300 like all (Bose, previous Sennheisers, Sony's, etc.) are designed to cancel out certain frequency ranges that prove to be the most annoying to commuters/travellers.These range in the 300hz - 1Khz band.Most sounds outside this range are unaffected.The positive is that for travellers looking to drown out that annoying aircraft cabin noise, these will work wodners for you.They'll also work well in auto's, trains, etc.What they are not as good for is cancelling out conversations (although they will mute it somewhat) and other higher frequency sounds around you.

Sound quality is good but not quite in the excellent category.IMO, they are better than the Bose since I find the Bose to sound very colored (sound is not the same as the original - typical Bose), the Bose seems to bottom out the bass driver when playing certain types of music, and finally the Bose noise cancellation circuit introduces more hiss than these Sennheisers.

Ergonomically the Sennheisers will travel well with you.The carry case fits the headphones, stick and adapters very well.The Bose, on the other hand, is a huge monster that takes up half your carry luggage.

If you're looking for a true sound isolation headphone you'd need to look at something like the Shure E4C or the Etymotic ER4P.These truly sound great and accurate while virtually eliminating ALL outside sound.The downside is that they are in ear headphones and many find them uncomfortable and difficult to wear on an airplane especially when cabin pressure changes and your ears can't equalize the pressure as easily.

5-0 out of 5 stars stupendously good!
I've had mine for almost a year now, still can't believe how great they sound.There are days when I will just sit and soak in the music through these things with a big goofy grin on my face...

The non-noise-cancelling Sennheisers are slightly better but I bought these because I spend a lot of time on the elevated train here in Chicago and it gets pretty noisy sometimes.Sure beats the heck out of the Bose phones which cost an extra hundred bucks!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great travel companion
This is my first noise-canceling headphone. So I was very curious to see how it worked. And how good its sound was. I must say I'm very satisfied - the phones are well worth the price.

The phones are very light, and very soft to wear. They fit tight and their very good cushioning provide already an excellent sound insulation from the ambient. It is possible to wear the phones for hours without getting tired or your ears sore.

Without noise-canceling, the phones present a clear sound, with crisp treble e strong bass. Being closed, there is some problem with building a "natural" sound image, specially with pop music where stereo separation is artificially increased. Otherwise, sound quality is hi-fi class.

Turning noise-canceling on has in fact two effects. There is some amplification of the signal. In my case, that's great given my laptop has a somewhat low output. The amplification is coupled with a sort of "loudness" effect. There is a clear reinforcement of bass and treble. What might disturb purists actually works great for noisy environments. What about the noise-canceling effect itself? Well, it's quite amazing given you don't expect miracles. Basically, the "oooossshhh" sound generated by air conditioning, plane engines, or the bus rolling on the road disappears, or is greatly reduced. This is enough for a much greater enjoyment of your music.

My only disappointment was that the noise-canceling unit is not detachable as I expected. So, even if you don't intend to use noise reduction you have to carry the unit, that is a little larger than a fountain pen. Alas.

I purchased a Bose wired "Triport" headphones to replace my 5 year old Sennheisler wireless... Thinking I can't go wrong..A wire connection has to be better, Right? Wrong!

Sennheiser is an old and trusted name when it comes to headphones.I purchased the wireless RS140 because I have a hearing loss and do not want to wear my hearing aids all day long.I primarily wanted them so I wouldn't have to turn up the tv to understand what was being said.After I hooked them up, I turned them on and only had to adjust the volume.I found I could walk around my apartment go into other rooms and not miss a word.The sound is perfect. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars nice, but flawed
My expectation of the 650 was rather great, with it's 0.05%, 10-39500 and ratings on headphone.com ... the problem is that they are drastically colored. Sennheiser states that these cans were developed with the way music listeners listen to their music today. That's cute, but to do this they have colored all the audio ranges with a "creamy" sound that dulls all the details. All wave lengths are dropped so you get artificial bass in all spectums leaving your not-so-average-music-listener feeling like you are listening to great music but it's not the best.

I just finished an extensive review the another serious audio listener and engineer and we both agree that there needs to be more advertizement on these cans to let you know that they are pre-toned for your average listening pleasure. There's no way I would do mix-downs or proof a final track with the 650s ... they are just not accurate enough.

The best cans out there are still the HD 600s. They're numbers are slightly lower than the 650s but it's not going to cause you grief with colorization. You can get to 10 with 650s and 12 with 600s in the lows, but because of the colorization and everything begin in the lower bracket you'll wish they produced the 650s with the extra low and no colorization.

650s are a disappointment. When you train your ear to hear everything being played and recorded and want the most accurate listening that you can you'll want the 600s.

5-0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING!!!!!
Right out of the box the Sennheiser HD650s reproduce a musical experience of fine detail and warmth to the listener. Owning both headphones models the Sennheiser HD600 and HD650 the HD650 is definitley a sonic improvement in every department over the HD600. The price of purchase justifies the musical experience you will recieve with the HD650s. The headphones are designed also for the home theater experience!!!. You cannot go wrong with Sennheiser HD650.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Headphones I Have Ever Heard
These headphones produce a soft, lush and beautiful sound. I have several other headphones including Grado and Bose and these are much better. The headphones in my opinion deserve a good headphone amplifier to get the most out of them. And with a headphone amp the sound is like a sound system costing thousands.

The headphones are not light. The headband adjusts and the earpads are velour and very comfortable. I do, however, feel the weight of the headphones but nonetheless can wear them for extended periods. The quality of the sound makes me not want to take them off. I also find myself listening to music at a lower volume because the quality of the sound is so good that I don't need higher volume to find that I am immersed in the music.

This product is expensive and worth the price. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Awsome, worth every penny
This headset is awsome, a nice improvement over my cheap 20 dollar lan center ones, as well as my plantronics. Very comfortable, and easy to set up. I hd dsp-500's and these own those to hell. Better sound, better bass, more comfort. Must buy!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but let the business pay for it.
I was looking for the product on their website and I eventually found a completely different website for supporting this product.
The website for this product is www.sennheisercommunication.com

The construction is well made and feels solid, but the cables and ear pads are not replaceable, unlike many of their models. The USB is nice and works fine, but you can also detach the USB to have MIC and headphone 3.5mm outs which is very convenient if you have a good soundcard. I would presume that the pc150 model is only lacking the USB interface.

The microphone does the job well, but can easily pick up wind noise even though it has a noise-cancellation feature. Make sure that you place the mic below your mouth and you will be fine.

The price is a bit much, but the quality of the sound being produced by the headphone portion is as good as my 497s to my ears. I can sit and listen to music and take phone calls from my Cisco IP communicator with ease.

I would recommend it highly, but the retail listing prevents me from giving it 5 stars. Purchase the pc150s if you do not need the USB feature.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good, not great. Not worth the price.
I bought this headset in hopes of finding a pair of moderately high-end phones with noise cancelling and a USB connection. Unfortunately, I misread the specs. Although titled "Sennheiser PC155 Traditional Binaural PC Headset with USB and Noise canceling" [sic], the microphone -- not the headphones -- is noise cancelling. Beyond that, the phones offer a weak (but very low noise) output. The headset is extremely comfortable, even on big ears like mine, and the microphone works great. Still, for the cost of this item, I'm better off with a good set of traditional 3.5mm headphones and a good mic.

5-0 out of 5 stars AWSOME
If you are a gamer or better yet...if you are a person who cares to have the best headset in the market...look no more. The PC 155 USB is it!

It feels great...it looks great....the sounds are out of this world and best of all...it is USB.

If you have a regular speakers that are connected to your pc....don't even worry. When you connect the PC 155 to your pc via the USB connector....all sound come out via the PC 155. However, once you disconnect the PC 155 from you USB connector your sounds come out via the speakers you had before.

It is great! Just get it! You will not regret it!!!!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
Listen mostly to classical onXM Sat and streaming mp3 audio from a Mac. Beautiful sound and enjoy outdoors on the patio. Have tried other makes and this is the first truly satisfactory unit. Well worth the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well Worth the Money!!!
I have had these for a week now and have put them to the test as far as sound quality goes. I listen to many types of music and these sound incredible across all genre! The surrond sound brings guitar and piano alive! I am very impressed. I hooked them into my DVD player and they sounded great as well. I am very picky and bought and returned several pair, but these are keepers!!! They are VERY simple to charge, and operate. The only con in my oppinion is that they are big. They are not heavy or uncomforatable, just big. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Take the time to break them in.
Before purchasing these headphones, I tried and returned the hd-215 "dj" headphones, which had insipid, lifeless bass and midrange --though crisp and sparkling highs. Definitely useless for dj's despite their 32ohm rating. their subjective volume and projection were somehow incredibly weak --perhaps the set was a lemon.


Now for the 485's:

At first I was divided about these cans. For headphones with 32 ohm impedance & 1/8" outputs --i.e. portable player ready--, they are the first phones I had heard with any appreciable soundstage. That is amazing considering the price of the phones; I paid U$ 70.00.

Since I was not expecting anything resembling soundstaging --or spatial placement of the different voices/instruments--, I initially mistook the sound as uneven and biased toward certain frequencies, especially the bass. (note: the 485's sound phenomenal for electronic music right from the beginning.)
I even tried --unsuccessfully-- to return the headphones.

Resigned to using them with as many different kinds of music as possible, even those with "trouble spots" for the phones, I thought they might sound different upon passing the 30-60 hour "break-in" stage.

This proved correct, both subjectively and in my concept of how headphones should sound. The bass, which had been a bit up front, but always tight and defined --the dynamic range well beyond human hearing in both directions--, smoothed out considerably.
The previously hidden frequencies became distinctly audible and, thanks to the soundstaging, revealed more about the music than I had previously heard.The players I used were an iRiver slimX 350 --main unit--, a top of the line riovolt player, and the humble, but mighty Sony Psyc 320.
These phones ultimately blew away all expectations for something in this pricerange; I quickly forgot about my Sony mdrv-600's.
Don't be put off by the initial apparent distance of certain elements of the sound; they make it to the forefront in about 35 hours of listening time. Use an appreciable volume for the entire process.
These phones fit over the average ear are very comfortable unless, perhaps, you have large earlobes --but even then, I can only imagine that the gentle earpads exert less pressure than most against-the-ear units.
The cord (which is thicker than on any sets I've seen for under several hundred dollars) is detachable and replacable, as are the earpads. The 485's are very aesthetically pleasing and unpretentious looking.The attached adjustable undertable hanger is not likely to be useful to anyone.
Nonetheless, these are phenomenal headphones for --well-- under $250.00. I can't imagine anything in this price range even approaching the combination of sensitive and aggressive sound qualities of the Sennheiser HD 485's. Anything resembling a sound stage at this price is simply unheard-of, and these headphones are, somehow, top notch in that respect. They excel --perhaps even sound better-- at lower volumes as well.
I have heard many different phones in different price ranges, both with and without preamps, and I really think these stand up to some high-end units. They are comfortable with all different genres of music --I have over 1800 cd's. Just give them a little time.
BTW, I don't recommend the "express" method of breaking-in headphones --wherein one plugs them into a stereo, puts a cd on repeat and leaves them for hours on end (they are not catcher's mitts) If you want to truly acclimate a set of headphones, you must take the time to listen to them with whatever different kinds of music you like (or even different artists, if you listen only to one genre). Also take into account that I have yet to hear these on my home system through a 1/4" connection --that will undoubtedly push them beyond what I have heard with thelittle, but formidable, iRiver.

Lucky me for encountering a strict return policy :)

Lucky you if you have a similar experience with these headphones.

The music sounded distant, like there was something between my ear and the music, as if I was listening to music with my ear to a door. It was just too irritating.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Headphones - but not for super large ears
Despite what the picture shows, these headphones fully cover the ear and do no lay flat on your ears like the 465's.The main selling point for these things is the great sound and diaphram technology.Well I can tell you, compared to my HD-527's these things are amazing.They really offfer a full range to the music withouth the heavy bass of the 527.It is fairly even sounding through the spectrum, with maybe some loss for solely classical music - but I am no audiophile!

Another great thing is that the impedance is only 32 ohms so it will work with your mp3 player or portable device, though it might look a bit funny when the small player is carried around and listened through these fairly large headphones.

For the larger eared people, if you dont like the feeling of your ears touching the inside of the headphone then don't get these.My ears are pushing it, but they just fit.I have worn these for a couple days now and they are exxxtreemely confortable even for long periods - this is attributed to the nice cloth earpads.And don't forget these badboys are warrantied for 2 years, which is more than most companies.

The box includes the headphones, a screw on 1" adapter and a stupid faux leather headphone stand.Do not buy these just for the stand, since you may never use it!

Otherwise, the price for these is pretty good for best sounding headphones you can buy that still work for portable players.Plus it has a detachable cord for those out there who constantly step on or snag the 3 meter cord.I gave these 5 stars for durability, sound, ease of use and quality you get with sennheisers proven equipment. ...
