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 inadequate for mixed usage. They're bulky, don't really isolate you from ambient noise, and leak a lot of audio, so they're a poor fit for office work or commuting. Thankfully, they're very comfortable, provide an...

Super detailed and neutral sound.


Purchased to replace to Grado's. Very happy with the ultra detailed sound on a high end vinyl only system. Far more comfortable than the Grado's for me at least. I prefer the single inlet cable v Grado split cable. Overall highly recommended.

Sounds above it’s price point
