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 HD 700


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.

Excellent open sound


I listened to these at CES in Las Vegas and they are excellent clear audio gems. You need real front end sources and a headphone amp with good cables to even get the best from these state of the art headphones

Great Sound","State of the art audio

Expensive but worth it

Pure Sound


The Sennheiser HD 700 has an absolutely huge sound stage and delivers on the promises of it being in between the Dark HD 650's and Sennheiser's flagship HD 800. The HD 700 has an amazing top end the middle to match, although i did find some issues when...

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...
