Sennheiser HD 560S Review


The Sennheiser HD 560S are wired open-back headphones meant for neutral listening. They deliver a well-balanced sound profile that should suit most musical genre...

Consistent audio delivery. Comfortable, relatively stable fit. Very well-balanced sound profile. Impressive stereo imaging performance.

High audio leakage. No included microphone. Terrible noise isolation. Wired-only connection limits versatility. No sound profile adjustment features. Bulky design. No on-board controls.

The Sennheiser HD 560S are great for neutral sound. While they're slightly lacking in low-bass, most mixes should still have adequate body and warmth. Vocals and lead instruments are present, detailed, and clear in the mix, and audio is delivered with...

Review: Sennheiser HD 560S | More Music For The Money Can Hardly Be Found Sennheiser HD 560S


Sennheiser has don so much magic with the HD 560S that you should hardly think it was possible at this price.

Neutral, open sound, an incredible amout of music for the money.


The Sennheiser HD 560S is a set of open, passive headphones that are in a price range that has long been crowded with wireless options. Convenient, yes, but the sound is far from what you get here. In fact, the HD 560S sounds better than any wireless...

Sennheiser HD 560S Review: The Clearer Reference Headphones


The Sennheiser HD560S is the new reference open-back headphones offering analytical treble and open bass at just S$299.

Are the Sennheiser HD 560S worthy as the new reference? It goes back to my first paragraph: what is your listening preference? The HD 650 is one of the classic favourites by audio lovers but some felt it would be better if they sound a little more...

Sennheiser HD 560S review


Sennheiser promises ‘reference-grade' sound on a budget

Expansive, detailed presentation ; Comfortable design ; Solid build and finish

Beaten for verve and energy

The Sennheiser HD 560S offer an even and analytical listen, they’re just missing an extra ounce of energy and fun

Sennheiser HD 560S review


The HD 560S deal strictly in the facts - because, let's face it, sometimes ‘fun' is overrated.

Astute, revealing sound Light and comfortable Simple to use

Not the most entertaining (or tolerant) listen Plastics feel a bit unyielding Slightly leaky

If it’s insight you want, and absolutely crystal-clear understanding of a recording, the HD 560S make an awful lot of sense. If you’re just here to be entertained, though, you’ll need to look elsewhere.

Sennheiser HD 560S review: Superb reference headphones


If you're looking for comfortable reference headphones that don't break the bank, Sennheiser's HD 560S should be on your shopping list

Highly refined sound ; Very comfortable ; Spacious soundstage

Neutral sound won’t appeal to everyone ; Poor sound isolation
