    Sennheiser HMD 26 reviews

    HMD 26-600-II-XQ On-Ear Stereo Broadcast Headset with 3-Pin XLR & TRS Connectors is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unbearable I would give these NO stars if it were an option. These are PURE torture. I work in TV and wear a headset 10-16 hours a day. I could not even have these on for 5 minutes. I have owned 5-6 other Sennheiser Headsets all model Sennheiser HMD281-PRO -which I loved except for the fact the mic would give out. I purchased this model because it was touted as very comfortable and the mic boom is exchangeable so when that part breaks you don't have to replace the whole thing. But these are intolerable and unusable. I will have to bite the restocking fee and default back to the more fragile model. Its worth the comfort. Do not buy these.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from One word - JUNK! Poor design, horrible handling noise, mic element freely moves around all over the place. Just junk! If you need pro quality audio, do not buy this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't be scared by the reviews. Based on the reviews alone, I would have passed on this headset. I think the problem is people don't understand this is an ON ear headset and not an OVER ear headset. I work as a lighting designer and sometimes have to wear a headset for 15 hours straight. I was turned on to these after a show caller at an event had them, and her voice sounded amazing over intercom. These sound great in the ears, mic sounds great, and the look really professional too. I love that I can swing the earcup back to make it a single when I need to hear the room. I will agree that since it's an on ear headset it isn't as comfortable as some of the over ears. With that said, they are still way more comfortable than any of the clearcom or telex offerings, and sound SO MUCH BETTER. The noise isolation is really good too. I use these in combination with 15db molded earplugs in arena settings, and the SPL out of the headset is good enough to crank up and hear production, and the mic sounds better than my David Clarks. I love being able to swap the 4 pin cable out for an XLR/TRS cable that I can use for video conferences and remote support applications. I am very happy with this headset.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit and would buy again I wear this headset for sporting and special events. On my head for 1.5 hours at a time and no discomfort and design is very acceptable. Was worried when I read the other reviews...but as a seasoned professional I have no problem with the design, electronics or connections. Works well when mixing by myself or when controlled by the production trailer.
