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...

Sennheiser HD 560S review: Audiophile sound on a budget


Sennheiser HD 560S over-ear headphones are built for budget-conscious audiophiles — because taking music listening seriously shouldn't cost an arm and a leg.

For properly examining a recording without sucking all the joy out of it, the Sennheiser HD 560S headphones constitute money very well spent. Which makes them an outstanding option for the kind of listeners we have in mind.

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


Aimed squarely at the audio enthusiast, Sennheiser's HD 560S isn't exactly awash with modern features – there's no Bluetooth or noise cancellation, no smartphone app or microphone for taking calls. The earpieces can be adjusted to get a good fit, but...

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