Sennheiser HD 600

 

When Steve Guttenberg reviewed the Sennheiser HD 650 headphones , he rightfully called them "fit for a king"--while noting that they retail for a correspondingly princely sum of $500. Thankfully, the HD 650s aren't the only model in Sennheiser's...

Sennheiser's high-end open-air headphones deliver deep bass, luxuriously padded ear cups, and a replaceable cord for a more economical price than their flagship model.

Expensive; not the best solution for portable listening; gray and black plastic finish doesn't scream high end.

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

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.

"Great Musical sound, outstanding comfort and build."

 

The HD600, HD650 and Q701 are in the same class of higher end sound. The rest of my headphones fall below. The next class is HD595 and ATM-500. I will say my QC15 are fantastic noise cancelling but with major quality issues of one side quiting out....

Out of all the headphones I have, I find the HD600 the most enjoyable. The HD650 are at times better but overall I enjoy the HD600 the most.

There is always better, but these are great headphones.

"The best value for money headphones on the market"

 

Once your've owned these headphones for a few weeks you will see them for what they are, the best value for money headphones on the market for audio purists.

Their sweet open air sound is so sweat and smooth. Do yourself a favour and connect them to a quality headphone amp to get the most out of them. Live music is full of soul and character.

Their price initially seems expensive until you seriously sample a range of headphones both cheaper and more expensive, once your've done this their price then seems like a bargain. A quality headphone amp is required to get the best out of them

"Amazing Clarity"

 

Just bought a pair for $270 from MacMall. After all of the great costumer reviews I've read about these cans, I've been wanting to get them.

I don't want to listen to music out of speakers anymore and I've got 3 sets of great speakers!
