Sennheiser HD 650 review

 

Sennheiser HD 650

Sennheiser's flagship headphones have high-tech styling, extraordinary bass response, and an extremely comfortable design.

They're heavy and very pricey, not to mention ill suited for use with the iPod.

The formidable Sennheiser HD 650 headphones are fit for a king--and have a price tag to prove it.

Sennheiser HD 650

 

Sealing: Open, Noise-canceling: None, Type: Circumaural, Impedance: 300 ohms

Warm, natural, detailed sound. Very comfortable. Sturdy construction. Replaceable cables.

Expensive.

The Sennheiser HD 650 headphones have everything you want in full-size audiophile headphones.

Sennheiser HD 650 HEADPHONES

 

The Sennheiser HD 650 deliver an excellent and open sound that's great for critical listening. They're comfortable and decently built but unfortunately, like most open critical listening headphones, they won't be suitable for more casual uses. They do...

Great audio reproduction. ; Above-average soundstage. ; Comfortable and stable design.

Open-back design, so they leak a lot. ; Poor noise isolation, by design.

Sennheiser HD 650 Headphones Review - Intro

 

The Sennheiser HD 650s are a set of high-end, open-backed, over-ear headphones. The HD 650s implement their open-backed design in an aesthetically interesting way, covering the backs of the ear cups with a grey grate which offers barely any physical...

The Sennheiser HD 650s are a solid pair of headphones for at-home use. They're about as good as other higher-end headphones, offering solid audio performance with very little distortion. They're fairly comfortable, although their pads aren't as soft as...

Sennheiser HD 650 Review

 

The Sennheiser HD650 bass headphones present you with detailed, precise bass, which sounds almost acoustic due to the open-air design. However, the best bass headphones offer more than just bass – they offer the whole gamut of sound and features. Even...

Comprehensive sound and soft ear cushions make these headphones easy to wear all day.

The lack of features is frustrating, and the open-ear design hinders noise isolation.

The set produces good bass, but lacks the features of other models.

Sennheiser HD 650

 

The Sennheiser HD 650s are a high-end set of open-backed, over-ear headphones. Headphones with an open-backed design have a much more open, airy quality to their playback as opposed to closed-back designs. The downside to this style is poor isolation...

The Sennheiser HD 650s performed well on our audio quality tests. They had an average frequency response score, with an evenly-emphasized bass and mid-tone response. They did fall off slightly at the high-end however. The headphones showcased virtually...

Sennheiser HD 650

 

The HD 650 has been Sennheiser's flagship audiophile headphone for several years now, but it is only recently that the firm decided to buck contemporary pricing trends to reduce the product's list price from around $600 to $500. Sennheiser has been...

Sennheiser HD 650 review

 

First things first. Do not be deceived by the 3.5mm jack adaptor – these are not headphones you want to plug into your iPod. They're just too good. You need an amp to tease the most out of the HD-650s, and preferably a lossless audio source. Ideally it...
