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...

"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.

"Bad sound, big jack -> Beware"

 

All Sennheiser products I've bought to date have been great value for the money, so I had become used to getting what I paid for. Not so with the HD 515. I have a closed HD 490, which costs less than half of these, and they deliver considerably better...

Light, comfortable

Bad sound, 1/4 inch jack

"A very good sounding headphone that's a joy to wear and listen to."

 

"Hooked up to our iPod, however, the HD 515s sounded too bright and forward and wouldn't play terribly loud. The iPod didn't seem happy driving the 515s, which means they definitely won't be a good match for other MP3 players, most of which are much...

Great for rock, good bass, light, comfortable, detailed sound, changeable parts for longetivity, long cable, materials don't make you sweat

Weird big to little adaptor which is chunky, press on ears a bit, bass can be overpowering on certain sources, but fine if you can adjust the equaliser, treble a bit weaker than bass,
