3-0 out of 5 stars Not an acceptable iPod replacement
Based on the reviews here, I bought these headphones to replace a pair of stock iPod headphones that were falling apart. I was disappointed. Compared to the iPod headphones, the Sennheisers are tinny and tight. They have very little bass response and the sound is not very full. It seemed like I was listening to an old tape player. I give these headphones three stars instead of two because they're so cheap. I'm going to try and get a bit more life out of the iPod headphones. If they break, I'll just spend $40 for a new pair of those. It'll be well worth it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great sounding earbuds, and a great value
I've tried any number of earbuds, and these are the best I've heard by a wide margin. I think the bass is quite decent for an earbud -- but since bass response depends quite heavily on fit, I suppose some others might have a different experience. Overall, I find the MX500's sound to be clear and warm compared to other earbuds I've listened to. I disagree with the reviewer who said these are the same as the MX300. I have both and I can hear a moderate but definite difference in sound quality. On the other hand the MX300 is quite decent and at about half the price of the MX500 might be a good choice for some. It should be noted, however, that the MX400 and MX500 *are* the same, differing only in that the former doesn't have a built-in volume control.

Everybody hears headphones and earphones slightly differently, but the MX500 is consistently rated as the top value in its category in headphone chat rooms and is probably the place to start if you're looking for a pair of earbuds.

3-0 out of 5 stars Overpriced version of the MX300..
Overall, I'm dissapointed! I have the MX300 and they sound identical and they are like $10 less! Don't get me wrong, they are great earbuds, but I was expecting an improvement from the MX300... save yourself $10, buy the MX300 instead, the volume control doesn't change the level that much anyway.

3-0 out of 5 stars You-get-what-you-pay-for earbud.
I bought this earbud because of the reviews here and regretted the minute i put it on. The bass is really really disappointing. I have tried to burn in but I don't think it imporved very much. The cord is not long enough. The sound is weak. The only thing that earn it a three star instead of two is the in-line volume control that comes handy. Anyway, if you are a little bit serious about listening to good music, look somewhere else.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good earbuds
To the people who claim that these earbuds don't reproduce the bass and/or the treble well: I think you should get you ears checked. These earbuds sound great. My only problem is that I think the cord is about 6" too short. I also wish they're stay in my ears better but that's probably a problem with my ears. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best choice for the money
This phone is the cheaper version of the Sennheiser 595s which are some of the best phones you can buy(at least under the 500 mark). The are remarkably similar to the 595s both quality wise and sonic signature. The 595s have slightly cleaner treble and bass but for a good bit more money.

THe 555s have slightly warm and foward sound with a natural soundstage, with excellent detail... though not quite as good as the high end level phones. They are efficient phones, in that they can be driven by sources without an amplifier. A lot of people don't know that phones have to burn in to reach the sound to which they were intended. So give em a good 100 hours of burn in at least before making conclusions.

For this price though, these phones blow away everything in it's class. I'm coming from the HD 497s and and if you thought those were impressive you have to try these...these are in a different class altogether. The 497s sound like garbage compared to these bad boys. Plus they are very very comforable. If your coming from those crappy basshead sony phones...I dare say you'll think your ears are decieving you... they are that good.

555s>500 dollar speakers...that simple. Highly recommended. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Agree with the poor review...
I picked up a pair of the rs-65's cheap from Amazon for watching movies and listening to music at night, so as not to disturb my wife and daughter. I have to agree with the previous reviewer's negative review---though they are not the worst headphones I've ever heard, they are not a good value for the money. When I first took them out of the box, my impression was, "Gee, these things are made of some pretty cheesy plastic." Getting a good, comfortable fit for me was impossible, and wearing them through a whole CD or movie was not a pleasant experience.

While the range for actually hearing some kind of sound may be ok, even a few feet away from the transmitter there is still static, which is very distracting while listening to music. Watching a movie is a little better, as you sit in one position, but even turning your head from side to side creates noise---I just can't bear to have noise interfere with the sound. Even aside from the static, the sound from these headphones is not good for the money. My corded Koss Portapros (you can check them out here on Amazon---much cheaper) sound infinitely better, and they are by no means an audiophile set of phones.

These headphones also have a surround sound feature which adds some "space" to the sound in your head, though the overall effect is pretty weak and does not compare with a true surround sound 5.1 system. Overall, I thought these headphones had tolerable sound for movies, but were just too uncomfortable to wear through an entire feature. After doing more research, I think wireless headphone technology still needs much improvement, and I plan to stay with corded phones for now.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not perfect but I love the mobility!
I really enjoy the mobility and the light weight. The sound isn't bad either. Typical of the better Sennheisers with decent bass and a nicely balanced high end. The downside of the cordless design though is that they lack the extreme detail of the best headphones and the highs aren't extended enough to get a silky topend.
I hesitated to buy these though based upon some comments by reviewers. There is some truth to these comments but they don't bother me. Yes, the headphone cup is a bit small and they do seem a bit tight at first. But I'm an over six foot male with a large head and average size ears. My ears fit fine and after just a couple of minutes they don't feel tight at all. I can wear them for hours comfortably. And reception isn't perfect. I can use them most anywhere in my large house but there are some deadspots based more on how I turn my head than distance. The good news though is that just a tiny head adjustment clears it up.
And lastly I recommend the SR65 as the sweet spot in the line. It has the autotuning feature which I suspect is important to decent reception and it has the surround sound feature which basically seems to feed the deeper bass to both channels. It does give more ambience and better bass. It definitely does enhance the sound of some recordings. The SR85 lacks the surround and substitutes dynamic noise reduction. That's evidently a compander system that according to the SR85 reviews seems to compress the dynamics. No problem here on dynamics.

3-0 out of 5 stars cracks and pops
As many people have pointed out, be prepared for static and temporary loss of signal as you move around while wearing these. It might annoy you (like me) to the point of having to go through the hassle of returning them. I do find them light and comfy, and the sound is fine ifmost of the time. If you keep your head stationary you won't have any break in the sound. But if your head is perfectly stationary, do you really need cordless? My opinion: live with the cord if you can...until the technology gets a bit better... it will.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Home Use
I use these beautiful headphones for mainly my computer. With beautiful 20" screen and 5.1 I needed headphones that could match with those standards.

These headphones are great. I have read the other posts about them breaking, etc. All I can say is these headphones break only because of YOUR misuse, your carelessness. Though they are made out of plastic (which does lighten them) they haven't once come close to snapping or warping out of shape. I do wish the battery life was a little longer, but with two batteries that really isn't that big of a deal. The sound's great on these and I never seem to experience distortion and fading like I have with other wireless. I haven't really tried using these headphones in a home-like setting (apartments relaly make that impossible) but even going down the hallway I can hear just fine.

If you HAD to buy a pair of wireless headphones, and buying the RS-85's was out of the question, these are definitely a solid buy.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I thought.
I bought these headphones less than a year ago. Then they quit. I only used them 2 hours per night to watch TV. I had good reception (went outside with them behind my house), while they were working. I sent them back to the factory in Old Saybrook, CT. It appeared they sent me a new set. But they only worked for a few minutes and then cut out. Try another brand. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Bought it to hear DVD when the neighbors are home.
Set up and plugging in is easy (power and 2 RCA's in the back of my surround sound reciever for me.) The book is a "little" unclear of what is what. Just yank the two battrey packs out and insert them into the charging stand, and wait 24 hours. After that, you can put the headphones on and listen.

The radial dials are not very intuitive. Tuning and volume are alike, so you have to watch how you put the heaqdphones on. Once on, they sound very good. Not the deep base from top end "over the ear" headphones, but good. The volume goes high enough for fun and exercise, but just barely.

It fulfills my intended desire, to listen to movies and music when I can't turn the surround sound system up, and it is wireless an doesn't "fuzz" out, so that is good. The headphones worked upstairs, in the basement, and about 40 feet outside with no changes in sound, mostly. A solid product that doesn't perform great, but does what it supposed to.

5-0 out of 5 stars setting the record straight
I wanted wireless headphones to listen to movies and play PS2 games when the kids went to bed. Let me set the record straight. These things work great. I was hesitent because of all the bad reviews. I ordered anyway. Boy was I glad I did. They work all throughout my house (3 diff. levels). Best performance is in the TV room, but they still allow roamimg to different rooms while listening to a movie. Sound quality and volume are both very good. They are plastic, but what isn't these days. With a little care they should last a long time. I use them w/ a 2.8ghz wireless PS2 controller, and have 3 900 mhz
phones, as well as a 2.8ghz phone. I have no interference whatsoever. I have an home theater system that is better, but these allow me to crank-up the volume when the kids are sleeping.
They are pricier then some, but I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for (normally). The instructions were sparse, but still easy to plug in and use without any problems. I have never tried any other wireless headphones, but do give these high marks. By the way, I am typing this with a wireless keyboard/mouse. I have no interest in this company, but am finally getting sick of reading horrible reviews on products that do not deserve it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good.
When I first researched this product, I was impressed by the positive reviews. There were, of course, a few negative reviews which focused on interfearance, etc. I decided to take a chance and buy this product.

Overall? I'm satisfied. The sound quality is excellent. Top knotch. I've placed the base in my basement, next to two CRT monitors and a whole lot of transformers, and I recieve little to no interfearance. If I walk around upstairs, they will occationally pop or crackle, but never for long. My only real complaint is that they seem to get suddenly softer for a few seconds, and then increase in volume. I'm sure it's not the signal strength, because it happens even when my head is perfectly still sitting next to the trasnmitter. But i'm now noticing it less and less.

Bottom line, if you're looking for a great pair of wireless headphones, and are willing to accept the fact that "wireless" will never work perfectly, by all means, buy this product. Dont buy this product expecting them to behave as though they have an invisible wire of infinite length connecting them to your stereo.

5-0 out of 5 stars Look No Further
These are the wireless headphones to buy. If you buy something else you will be sorry. I've tried them all. I orginally bought the lower Sennheiser model I think, the RS-65. They worked alright, with a little noise, but the earcup broke and dangled after six months or so. Then I went on a wireless phone Odyssey and tried every kind out there except the Sennheisers and it was all static. I even tried the only 2.4 Ghz phones out there and there's a reason they're the only one. (The sound is fine as long as you're in the same room and don't run the microwave ouch!) So buy this one and be very careful with the earcups. Mine haven't broken again so far, I think the construction is possibly a little better than the cheaper model. But if they break after a year, at least you'll have had a year of enjoyment instead of a year of aggravation!

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW!!! BEST PURCHASE I HAVE EVER MADE!!!!
I just bought this thing from Amazon and all I can say

is WOW!!!!

This is probably the best purchase I have ever made.

thinking. I bought it and I am extremely happy with it

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing
These headphones are amazing. The price is extremely low for the quality of these headphones.

They're extremely comfortable; the most comfortable headphones of any style I've ever worn. Being a huge audiophile, I'm picky about my headphones, and these have beautiful clarity. The range is great as well, the highs are perfect. The mids and lows are right on as well. As for breaking them in, the bass will only get better with time, so that's even better.

Sennheiser PMX60s get LOUD! If you have hardware that can push it, these can bring you to ear drum shattering range and still sound crystal clear. The are only two downsides. These are open headphones, so people around you can definetly hear your music as well. But if you're getting open headphones, that's obvious.Also, the cord is kind of short, but it works for me.

The headphones are stylish, light, and very well put together too. All together, their sound quality, range, loudness, style, comfort, durability, design, and construction are all topnotch; not to mention the very low price.

These are great! Pick them up now!

4-0 out of 5 stars here's the good and the bad
I got these yesterday and here are my impressions...

bad:

* as other reviews suggested, people surrounding you can definitely hear what you're listening to. That's just fine for a loud gym or the outdoors, but maybe not good for a library or an airplane.
* the band at the back of the neck is way too big for me and it's not adjustable. They still fit well. My head isn't huge.
* The cord is indeed fairly short. Not too big of a deal for most things but I can imagine it being a problem sometimes.

good:

> the sound quality is fantasic. As others have said, you can increase the volume and not increase the distortion. Very crisp.
> they are loud which is great too.

I use these for the gym so I'm happy with them. I'm not sure what I'll do for a plane trip though when I want headphones that won't annoy my neighbors.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice product
Well, I just got the headphones today and they are working out great. I know that a few other reviewers have complained about a very short cord length. However, I find that the length is just fine. It is enough to go from my head to my waist (i'm 5'11"), while still giving some slack. They are very comfortable on my ears and on the back of my neck.

However, just as others have mentioned, these headphones can DEFINITELY be heard by people around you. If this is a problem for you, then I wouldn't buy these. But, if you think this won't be a real issue, then they are a great set of headphones and sound great!

3-0 out of 5 stars Light in weight and bass
Bought these as a replacement to similar Sony phones, which I found uncomfortable on long runs. They have incredibly clear sound in the mids through highs, great for classical music, though that isn't what one typically listens to while working out. Despite the assurances of other reviewers to the contrary, these headphones do, in fact reproduce bass quite badly and they WILL distort at moderate volumes in the 100-800 Hz range. On an album like Speakerboxxx, the drivers give off a sound like a leafblower instead of thumping with the bass. Sennheiser has clearly sacrificed the potency of the driver to reduce mass. They are very comfortable for this style of phone.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT STUFF!!!!!!!!!!
I got this earphones because mine broke (panasonic clip-ons) and a friennd of mine did a stupid bet agindt me and he lost so he bought me new earphones.

I can say a lot of things about these earphones, but i think that the one that predominates is THEY RULE!!!!!!. Although it has ints cons, as neighbours listening to your music, its just a metter of turning down the volume a little. I have worn these earphones in planes, school, everywhere, and they are fantastic. I wont say they can be a little short on the cord, but its just a inor drawback. If you like to listen to music, and you listen a lot of music like i do (10 hours a day, minimum) these earphones are great, they do not bother you when you wear them , and they have great sound.

WELL DONE SENNHEISER!!!!!!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Budget Headphones
I am a total head-fi freak. I make sure that I always suit my needs with the best possible music and sound quality from headphones. To fill this urge, I bought a pair of Sennheiser HD-595s because they were easier to drive than other Senn's and they also are much brighter, so they are better-suited for rock music.

My music preferences are as follows:

Rock (Aerosmith, Nirvana, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, The Eagles, David Bowie, Black Sabbath, Queen)
Electronica
Techno/Trance

Jazz

These headphones really shined in the Rock category. It reproduced songs beautifully, with good mids, very nice and deep lows, and good vocals. Sound channeling is excellent to give you the very best detail in all of your music.

Again, as I said before, these headphones are very powerful and therefore don't require an amp to be driven. I first ran the headphones directly to my SACD player, and noticed a MUCH bigger improvement over the HD-580s than expected. I then plugged it into my Meta42 headphone amp, and.. WOW! I was very impressed by how much more this unit shines with good gear.

In addition, these 'phones are very comfortable, and open-sound, so that it will be comfortable to wear for hours-on-end, and wont make it uncomfortable/sweaty around your ears.

To conclude, these headphones are a VERY good starter headphone for the developing-audiophile. The value is superb, the quality is great, the comfort and build quality is the usual Sennheiser best, and it doesn't require high-end material to shine like all other products from Sennheiser. This means that you can purchase these 'phones and get great results, and then when you are ready to take the plunge for a headphone amp, you will get even BETTER results. These headphones are the perfect example why a headphone amp can make a huge difference in your listening experience.

I hope this review has helped.

5-0 out of 5 stars WARM BUT DETAILED
Wow! This headphone is awsome. It totally breathes life into my music and i lisen to all types of music (electronic, hip-hop, classical, jazz, rock.). The only way to describe the sound of this this headphone is warm but very detailed. The HD590's are cold and detailed. I can hear things in songs that i never heard before. not only doese it sound good but it feels good. They are so comfortable. There is not a lot of pressure on your head but they have a snug fit. The pads are very soft and not irritating. The only negative thing i can say about it is that sound leaks through these headphones. It might bother others and outside noise might bother you. ...

These in-ear headphones are excellent. They're not quite as stylish as Bang and Olufsen's but I think the sound quality is as good and they also appear to handle bass a lot better at high output. The price is also a LOT more attractive than B&O's.

5-0 out of 5 stars Really sweet sound
I'm really impressed with these headphones. This is my first pair of Sennheiser headphones, and unlike other headphones I've had throughout the years, I use these for a variety of purposes: watching movies, working at my computer, or rocking out at the office. They're great sounding, but best of all they're really comfortable. These headphones never get uncomfortable on my head, so I can get the ultimate experience while watching The Wall, The Song Remains the Same, or the Godfather Trilogy. Don't matter. These things are a great set of headphones, especially for the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars great earphones
Very comfortable, blocks other sounds, wonderful fidelity, great price, I love them!!!!!

2-0 out of 5 stars low quality
I recently purchased these headphones and must say that I am dissapointed with their sound quality. While the range and volume is fine--bass response is ok and highs play without distortion--the overall sound is muddled. The sound is not crisp and clear. Rather, it sounds as if my music has already passed through some heavy object before reaching my ears. There is no problem understanding the music, don't get me wrong. Compared to the Coby headphones (bought at around the same price) that I was trying to replace, however, these headphones are simply not very good. I think Sennheiser makes good headphones, but I wouldn't waste any money on these. If you want a pair of Sennheisers, pay a little more to get one of their better models.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love Sennheiser
WOW!! I'm an ex-band guy. I grew up on Altec Voice of the Theater speakers. My best friend in high school turned me on to Sennheiser headphones when I was still using my pair from Sears. I've been using a pair of Sennheiser 455's for the last 15 years. I just bought these 457's. WOW!! Better response in all ranges than I hoped for. Light weight and great price too. Don't hesitate. I'm buying a second pair.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buy different headphones!
I bought these headphones because they are bigger than the ones I have and thought the sound would be clearer. Well, it was, until the tiny wire snapped and there go the headphones. The wires that lead into the headphones are too small to accomodate the heavy headset. Look for another if you want long lasting headphones. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars good sound + comfort
The first set of these headphones i got from amazon did not work, but i sent them back and the replacement was here in no time. The headphones have very good sound for this particular style. And the on cord volume control is very handy. The cord is very long and because it attaches to only one side of the headphones it does not get caught up easily which is great for using them with a computer. The think i like most though, is that the headphones are very comfortable. They are very light and do not get in the way of my glasses.
They also reduce noise but do not cut you off from the rest of the world - important in many office settings. Finally even if i have them up quite loud my officemates still cannot hear them.

All in all a really nice set of headphones ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars SENNHEISER HD 212 PRO
Briefing: Most high end headphones operate above 32 Ohms, meaning those headphones that require more than 32 Ohms will require an amplifier. The amplifier of course will set you back at least another one hundred dollars. With that said the HD 212 PRO requires 32 Ohms, meaning you won't have to purchase an amplifier if you don't already own one.

Performance: If you do buy these headphones make sure you give them a good burn in session before you evaluate them. I noticed the headphones sounded better after playing a variety of music for about 10 hours.

Sound: The sound is definitely bass heavy; however the sound produced does not sound muddy, rather the sound produced is crisp and clear.

Portability: The headphones are not all that portable, since they don't fold.

Comfort: The headphones are comfortable, but not so comfortable to be worn hours on end. Note that if you plan on wearing glasses while wearing these or any headphones with ear cups, they may or may not cause some discomfort.

Roundup: The HD 212 PRO is very nice, producing excellent sound quality for headphones under sixty dollars, all without the use of an amplifier. Lastly the bass heavy sound makes it ideal for more upbeat modern music, such as pop, rock or trance.

Note: The information provided is my opinion, based on my own personal knowledge and experience. Therefore I can not guarantee that you will have the same opinion of this product.

4-0 out of 5 stars Worth the Money
I listen to a lot of different types of music, I listen to music all the time, and I use headphones a lot. So I wanted a good pair and I didn't want to pay more than 50 bucks. I did a little research and picked this pair, and I could not be more pleased. They sound great (I am by no means an audiophile, but I know when it sounds good) with all types of music. They are very comfortable and seem to be sturdy. If I had any complaint, it's that at lower volume levels, it doesn't cancel out background noise terribly well. But that is a fairly minor complaint, seeing as I usually listen to music at higher volume levels.

The bottom line is that you will not find a better pair of headphones at this price that sound better. You could spend $75.00 (which I have) for headphones and not get a pair that sounds this nice. If you want high quality without the high price tag, buy this pair now.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great Headphones, But Not for Travel
I bought these headphones at circuit city and they have great sound, bass, cancel out some noise even though they aren't noise cancelling. They are ok in the comfort zone. They are good for maybe an hour but then they start to feel a little tight. I used these playing halo on the pc and they sound incredible. But sirprisingly I am returning them tomorrow because they are horrible for travel. They do not fold up, they are large in size, and they don't cancel out the noise for airplanes as some other headphones do. And most of all they look plain stupid. I also own the audiobahn over-ear headphones and they don't look as close to retarded as these do on your head - I was to embarrassed to wear these out of my house. Only would recommend for pc gamers who arent using for travel.

4-0 out of 5 stars Lightweight, great sound, but a little tight.
These headphones produce excellent sound. I began to hear things in my music that I had not heard before, and I found that to be greatly satisfying. The bass is a bit heavy, but nothing unbearable. The only complaint I have is that the headphones are a bit tight on my head. This doesn't impact me right away, but after a couple of hours, my ears are sore from the pressure, and are very sensitive; however, most headphones have this problem unless they can be altered for fit, but most do not.

For $40 or so, these are great. They block out light ambient noises, and have very good sound quality.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent headphones
I purchased these from Amazon a couple months back and I must admit that they are awesome. At the time I was planning to buy a portable jukebox (Nomad Jukebox 2), and was familiar with the concept of packaged headphones. Packaged headphones let you listen to music, they don't let you experience it. So after purchasing the jukebox, these headphones arrived shortly after.

When I tried them for the first time I immediately noticed the nice clean sound coming from these headphones. I love Rap, R&B, Alternate, Metal, etc. I definately love bass. These headphones definately deliver on the bass. Throw in an equalizer and you'll be in bass heaven. With regards to a comfortable fit, that varies from user to user. At first they weren't very comfortable, but after continued usage they began to fell like a part of my head. lol.

When I'm on campus, everyone that I let listen to music using these headphones are amazed at the sound quality. Because its a closed headphone, it blocks out most of the sound. I'm not sure how long the cord is, but its probably 9-12 feet. While this headphone is great for most music, I wouldn't recommend it for those into classical and other types of music that doesn't really use bass. It definately was made for those who want more bass in their music. When you first use these headphones the sound quality will be awesome, but I wouldn't suggest turning the music up too loud until after some hours of usage. I hooked mine up to the stereo and turned the volume up to an acceptable level and left it playing over night. The sound quality does get better.

While I loved these headphones so much, I decided to give away mine. Actually, I accidentally left it in a classroom and someone took it. At least they'll be listening to some good music. Because they're so good, I just added another to my cart. As soon as I have the money I'm buying it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A great compliment to any stereo system
I received these headphones for Christmas. After searching for headphones, having used a few (Grado 60, Sony MDR-V4 and V6s), I find the HD580s are great.
They are comfortable, offer great sound reproduction and imaging and are adequate in bass. What's interesting is the fact that they are good enough to hear things I've not heard on some of my music CDs. I haven't experienced ear fatigue that I usually get with other headphones. Highly recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the best buy in high quality headphones today
The HD-580s are probably the best buy in quality headphones going today. These are true audiophile headphones that bring quality construction and sound with them. The 580s are akin to the equivalent of a pair of $1100 speakers if you use the rule of thumb of $1 for headphones for every $6 in speakers. [I own a pair of ACI Sapphires and a pair of Quad speakers].

While other headphone companies make quality gear, they really don't have anything at this price point that performs well. Grado's R2, a great headphone in its own right, is over two hundred dollars more than the 580.

The reason for their value, I think, is that it contains much of the same internal electronics as the HD-600 and 650s. These retail for at least $150 or so more than the 580s, the only difference being the 580s are made of hard plastic and the 600/650s have additional electronics that only nominally effect sound.

These get my highest recommendation.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for the long haul
I have a pair of 580s I bought over 9 years ago, and paid almost twice the current price. They are still the best sounding, most comfortable headphones I've ever used. I listen to music 8+ hours a day at work. These headphones are incredibly comfortable. Sound reproduction is excellent, I originally bought them to listen to live recordings I was making of local bands. They work great with my dat deck, or with my pc. After nine years the only signs of wear is the thin piece of foam between your ear and the speaker element. It's finally worn enough to need replacement. Should anything happen to these, I would buy another pair immediately.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fabulous
The number of lukewarm reviews of the 580 surprises me.

I've owned a lot of headphones, both as an avid listener and semi-professional musician and recordist: AKG, Grado, Sony, Sennheiser, Koss, a wide variety of models of each make. The 580 has become my preference for all applications except portable listening, where a portable amplifier would be necessary (I don't need one more thing to lug around).

The build quality of the 580 is outstanding, and while I have heard of cable/connector problems with Sennheiser headphones and even experienced them myself with lesser models, such as the HD 497, the 580 seems to have a very good cable and the connectors are as firmly seated as can be. Sennheiser has a good warranty and I obtained warranty service for my 497s without difficulty. Those who have had trouble with their cables should give Sennheiser a chance to make things right.

These are the most comfortable full-size headphones I've owned. Aside from the weight, one can almost forget one is wearing headphones.

The idea that these are somehow a mid-fi product is puzzling, to say the least. Back when the 580 was introduced, Stereophile gave it a glowing review and even included it in their "recommended" list. It was the first headphone to ever make the list, and it's still on there even now that there are (arguably) better headphones available. The 580 belongs in the hi-fi category. The differences between the 580, 600, 650, and comparable models of other makes are slight, and going from one to another could be thought of more as a lateral move than a significant upgrade. The 580 and its competitors are all so good that they can expose defects in your source, amplifier, and recordings - this may be why people sometimes have mid-fi experiences with them. The 580 cannot be adequately driven by most portable music players and PC soundcards, which can be another reason for disappointing performance. What some have called the "Sennheiser veil" may well be a side-effect of inadequate amplification or other system problems. At least a good receiver or pre-amp is necessary, and some 580 fans hold that the 580 can only be properly appreciated when driven by a dedicated headphone amplifier.

The 580 is sometimes pigeon-holed as a headphone for the classical music listener, but in fact it works well with any type of music, though confirmed bassheads won't like its relatively neutral bass.

The 580 sounds great right out of the box, but it develops a certain effortlessness after many hours of use have elapsed. It has great treble extension without being too bright or shrill. Bass reproduction is well-controlled and realistic and the midrange is slightly warm, with a realistic level of detail. Some observe a slight mid-bass hump, but the response curve is one of the flattest you'll ever see. Microdynamics are great, and instruments are easily distinguished, even with a very complex program. Listening fatigue is a non-issue. The 580, despite offering good detail, is more forgiving of a poor source or recording than many other hi-fi phones. People like me who enjoy older recordings may prefer them for that reason. Listening to the 580 makes the shortcomings of other headphones more obvious.

Other advantages of the 580 are a replaceable cable and ear cushions. The 580 is built for longevity as well as great sound.

This is a headphone that grows with you. It will audibly reflect almost any change you may make to your system, and the better your gear, the better the sound from the 580. The 580 makes a great introduction to hi-fi headphones, and for many it's also the last headphone they purchase. All gear involves some compromises, but the 580 makes good ones and it represents one of the best values in audio.

If your system is already quite good, consider the 600 or the 650 instead. If you need a good headphone that can be easily driven by low-power devices, consider a Grado, such as the SR-60. For portable use, anything from the Sennheiser PX series is a good choice, though the Koss Sportapro might be the best value.

5-0 out of 5 stars HD580
These headphones are great especially considering the price. I've had mine for a year and after all of the use/abuse they are still working without any problems, another reviewer had problems with the connector but I have not experienced that. Most of the parts that get worn are replaceable so I expect to get a lot more use out of these headphones. ... 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 HD590s feature 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.

3-0 out of 5 stars Close, but for this price, no cigar
These are great headphones, and extremely comfortable. But to add real life into your music, especially out of the confines of the clasical genre, grab a pair of Sennheiser HD-600's...The sound those headphones create is near perfection. They are often used as a reference for recording engineers, and audiophiles. The extra [price] is very much worth it. ...these headphones are great for classical music, but if you are primarily a rock listner you might want to check out the Grado SR-325's. I would also recommend going and auditioning this type of headphone before you buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best high-end headphones for the average stereo
I bought the Sennheiser HD 590 Prestige headphones after I became dissatisfied with my admittedly low-end headphones, and what a difference these headphones make! Sure, they are brighter than the older HD 580 Precision and HD 600 Avantgarde headphones, but the HD 590 works well on normal stereo equipment (unlike the HD 580 and HD 600, which require a separate, expensive, high-powered headphone amp just to obtain much sound quality out of them) - and the HD 590 even works quite well directly from many portable CD players (again, unlike many of the other Sennheiser full-size headphones, some of which are far less sensitive than their smaller size implies). The bass is quite deep without any hint of boominess; the mids are as open as any headphone I have ever listened to.

These headphones are so comfortable that I can wear them almost forever - if I ever listen to music that long. The only problem of these headphones is that they are so detailed, you will notice all the flaws in your recorded media! That means if you feed them crap, they'll sound even more like crap. On the other hand, well-mastered CD's sound better than they ever did.

So, if you want a taste of the high-end Sennheiser sound but don't want to spend thousands of dollars on super-high-end equipment, the HD 590 is the way to go. People who want an exaggerated stereo presentation may be disappointed with these headphones - in that case they should buy a pair of Grado headphones (but be prepared for an ear-ache after an hour of listening).

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW!!! BEST PURCHASE I HAVE EVER MADE!!!!
I just bought this thing from Amazon and all I can say

thinking. I bought it and I am extremely happy with it

the moment I powered this thing on. YOU ABSOLUTELY

POSITIVELY CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THIS PURCHASE! I

GUARANTEE IT!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best high end headphones for portables...
I love listening to music on headphones to either relax at night or while I'm in the middle of household busy work: projects, cleaning, bills...etc. Unfortunately, this means I do most of my at home music listening through a portable cd player. After having lived with a outstanding pair of Definitive Technology floor speakers paired with a very nice Yamaha tuner and Phillips dual-well cd player for two years the output from most portable player set ups wasn't even close to being on the same level. After a large amount of research I decided I wanted to upgrade to a set of high end headphones to maximize the portable cd player experience. The HD-590's sound fantastic, easily on par with the 600's and with a lower impedence, they perform great on portable players without the need for a cumbersome headphone amp. They are extremely comfortable, lightweight and sound fantastic. Pair them with the iRiver IMP-550 cd/mp3 player as I have, and you will have the best sounding portable cd set up available.

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than the 580s
I have read practically every review on the net for high-end headphones and narrowed by selection down to the Sennheiser 580 and 590. I set out to put the two to a head to head competition but could not find a store which sold both. Consequently, I had to buy the 590s at one store (30 day money back guarantee of course) and bring them to a different store which had the 580s.

As a disclaimer, I must state that neither headphone had been "burned" in, so take what I say with a grain of salt. I guess I figured that they were both under the same disadvantage. Now I must admit that going in I had preconceptions about the two. I expected the 580s to sound better and the 590s to be a little "too bright" comparatively but be much more comfortable and easier to drive with a portable cd player.

I listed to the headphones using the same amp and cd player (Marantz) at the same level. I was shocked because the 580s actually seemed a bit louder than the 590s which has a 5db higher SPL. The sound: these headphones have a VERY different sound. Both were great but the 580s seemed to blur the music together more. Conversely, the 590s seemed to have better distinction and an even sound. Strangely enough, however, some songs did sound better on the 580s (I was there for awhile), but overall, the 590s won out on sound.

Not convinced of my own judgment, I had my wife (a classically trained violinist) to listen to the two headphones. She didn't know anything about the headphones and did not come to the table with preconceived notions based on others opinions (like I had). She liked the 590s better. When I asked her which were brighter, she did say the 590s were a little brighter but it was not a negative and the sound, again, was overall better than the 580s.

Now as far as comfort, as everyone else has written, the 590s win hands down over ANY headphone. They are amazingly comfortable which is important for me because I will listen to them for hours on end at the office. I absolutely cannot stand getting a headache from headphones.
