Sennheiser HD 600 Headphone Review

 

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

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

Big and bulky ; Too nice for a travel companion

Sennheiser HD600 Headphones

 

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

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

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

Sennheiser HD600

 

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

Lively, broad dynamics, Attractive and comfortable

Not the most detailed treble

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

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

Brilliant mid and vocal sounds, Prominent strong bass

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

Sennheiser HD 600 headphones

 

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

High-end open-air headphones deliver deep bass ; Luxuriously padded ear cups ; Replaceable cord for a more economical price than their flagship model

Expensive ; Not the best solution for portable listening ; Grey and black plastic finish doesn't scream high end

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

Consumer review by: N/A (newegg.com)

Excellent alternative to monitors

 

I'm using these for mixing (still use my actual studio monitors, just less) and they're a very flat response headphone. Too flat for casual listening, which is why I held on to my old headphones that color music a bit too much for mixing but sound...

Sound quality ; Light weight ; Good fit ; Price (online/sale) ; Cord length

Not free ; VERY flat response
