Sennheiser HD515 Dynamic Stereo Sound Audiophile Headphones

 

High-tech design; rich sound; outstanding comfort.

Not a great match for portables.

Sennheiser's HD 515 headphones don't scrimp on comfort or sound quality.

Sennheiser HD 515 Headphones

 

A great headphone for audiophiles

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

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

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

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

Better than stock headphones, great soundstage

Boring sound, lacking mid definition, slightly uncomfortable

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

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

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

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

"Fits over my ears for hours of comfortable studying"

 

I bought these to listen to lectures in grad school. They work amazingly in that respect. On top of that, started to listen to some of my favorite songs and movies, and heard things I never heard before. Was never a big audiophile, but I now want to...

Large enough to fit perfectly over ears

Not isolating at all, even at lowest settings neighbor can hear me

"Really disappointed by this headphones!!"

 

They look nice.Thats all.

The sound in the middle and high frequencies is as bad as a 10? headphones. Really a big disappointment. My Sony mdr-7506 sound like 1000? product compared to this. I don t know how this brand can put this product as Audiophile....

"Great set of headphones I use them professionally"

 

I will purchase another set maybe higher end I spend hours at the mixers and also use them in practice sessions, good reproduction of sound and I cannot seem to make them distort low end great mids are great and lots of bass.what more could you ask...

Light weight,Great sound,works well with mixer boards I use. Durable they don't distort and stay cool and comfy.

Cord is on the wrong side for me.
