Sennheiser HD700 Review

 

If you like listening to high-quality music or if you like to be called an audiophile, you'd probably have heard about Sennheiser. If you're even more enthusiastic, you'd also have read about the HD650 and the HD800. The HD650 has been a legendary pair...

When it comes to weight, the HD700 headphones might sound heavy in the spec sheet as they weigh close to 1.6 kg. However, wear them and you’ll realise that they really aren’t that heavy at all. The insides of the cans are extremely spacious so there’s...

Sennheiser's new HD 700 ($999.95) over-the-ear headphones sound "effortless," without strain, harshness or aggressive edge. Their stereo soundstage is more open and spacious than you'll hear from most audiophile headphones, and the bass, midrange,...

The Sennheiser HD 700 is a large, full-size audiophile headphone model with a wide-open sound profile and transparency that sounds great on digital music players.

The HD 700 is very expensive, so some buyers might be put off by the amount of plastic used in the design.

Sennheiser's HD 700 isn't just one of the best-sounding headphone models we've tested, it's also remarkably comfortable to wear for hours at a time.

Sennheiser HD 700 Review

 

The Sennheiser HD 700 is undoubtedly the best headphone we've got this year and perhaps one of the best ever. But just like fine wine or other epicurean pursuits, this sonic indulgence is a pleasure restricted to the well-heeled audiophile.

Supreme dynamic range, Pristine audio reproduction, Ultra-comfortable

You'll need a source to match, Expensive

Brian Kahn finds Sennheiser HD 700 headphones to be great performers at a great price, provided, that is, you are willing to spend some time with them and have the equipment to make them shine.

Sennheiser HD700 Headphone (Hi-Fi+)

 

The Sennheiser HD800 is one of the best headphones money can buy, but it's not without its detractors. It's not cheap, is demanding of headphone amplifiers (Sennheiser has recently re-entered the headphone amplifier game as a result), and has so much...

DISCLAIMER: I finally managed to get a sample of the highly discussed Sennheiser HD700 a couple of months after Mike was in possession of the pre-production sample. Do...

Thanks L, I’ve been rethinking this and might try the HE-500 instead.

Sennheiser HD 700 review

 

The Sennheiser HD 700s offer a wide-open, crystal-clear sound that audio purists will appreciate. Thankfully, they've been built well enough to protect that £600 investment.

Very open sound ; Extremely clear audio ; Good build quality

Pricey ; Not particularly warm

The HD 700s offer a modern, striking design and a reassuringly sturdy build. Their ability to reproduce excellently clear, open audio will be particularly welcome to fans of classical and live music, although the hardened bass nuts might want to look...

Comfortable and light, an elegant and refined sound, even-handed presentation

Lacks a little attack and bite

The HD700s have a refined sound and are also easy to listen to for hours on end

Recommended!
