Sennheiser HD 595 Headphones


Professional headphones to enhance your music

This headphone provides great sound quality with booming bass. It is also extremely comfortable to wear

Some mp3 players may find it too hard to pump any volume into these headphones. The closed-back style of the headphones leaks the sound to the outside

Headphones designed primarily to be used to listen to movie audio with, the Sennheiser HD 555s are a great addition to the collection of any ardent movie fan who wants to watch movies in private while getting the best sound possible. The open-backed...

Simply Amazing


just to remind people, these are an open design, so you can hear everything around you,

Sound quality is outstanding. Not only do these headphones have a crystal upper range and powerful lower range, but the sound resolution is superb. These headphones allowed me to hear nuances in music that I never realized existed ; for gaming,...

I would say expensive, and bulky, but they are worth every penny ; it spoils you, you find flaws in all other headphones and stereos you listen to (even bose speakers)

spoils you for anything else


Incredible sound. Works great with stereo, Nokia Nuron, etc ; Reminds me of Klipsch high end speakers

Wires. Spoils you for anything else. I'm currently looking for something to wear that is less obtrusive in the car ; I want THIS sound quality though

All of the best circumaural headphones are open, so you can't really knock the HD595 too much in that regard. I really wish Sennheiser sold the velour pads separately so users could replace them when they go bad, but considering the factory ones have...

I've owned these headphones for almost 5 years now, and I still love them just as much today as I did the day I bought them. Fantastic sound quality, and while they do their best with an amp (I have a Xin Supermacro with OPA627 op-amps), they still do...

The 6.3->3.5mm requirement is a bit clunky for most uses. The open design means you can hear anything going on around you, and people around you can hear what you're listening to ; Not user-repairable - after five years one of the velour pads has...

Very nice


These are Open cans so you do hear all ambient noise and people around you can hear your music. (But that is true with all Open Cans!).

Very comfortable, ( I have a ginormous head) and excellent sound reproduction. These can certainly qualify as "Audiophile" quality is some circles. At the price these are sold at, they are an amazing bargin

I really can't think of any

Do your homework and you won't be dissapointed!


For gaming, I highly recommend the ASUS Xonar Essence STX and the Zalman clip-on microphone. The Xonar has enough juice with the built in amp and the surround sound capabilities for games is on par easily with x-fi cards (with all the other bells and...

I have done exhaustive research on various cans and somewhat on what I needed to drive them. I cannot offer experience on various other headphones like some people since I have had a limited scope on what I thought would be good for my gaming needs ; I...

With the cans and the card, it was a bit pricy - but will outlast 2 generations of components I throw in my system (if not more) ; My wife is getting P'off about my system upgrades
