Sennheiser HD 600 overview

  • 1Description

An audiophile quality, professional stereo headphone, the Sennheiser HD600 utilizes "Duofol" two-layer diaphragm technology to radically reduce surface born resonance. A powerful Neodymium-ferrous magnet is optimized to control the motion of the diaphragm, which provides deeper bass without the loss of definition.

Complementing the diaphragm and driver magnets are triple wound aluminum voice coils, which housed in an acoustically transparent ear cup, maximizes the benefits of the open design. The HD600 is an ideal choice for the professional recording engineer, providing an uncolored and spatial rendition of any program material, especially classical music.

Open circumaural high-definition stereo headphone
High-quality open metal mesh earpiece-covers aid in delivering extremely transparent sound
Computer optimized magnet system minimizes harmonic and intermodulation distortion
Duofol diaphragms to reduce standing waves for distortion free sound
Neodymium ferrous magnet system ensures optimum sensitivity and dynamic response
Extremely lightweight aluminum voice coils for highest transient response
Very comfortable to wear due to BioNetic design
Detachable Kevlar-reinforced OFC copper cable

    Sennheiser HD 600 reviews

    HD 600 Headphones is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to get any better Before the HD 600 I was used to use an AKG K240, wich is not a great headphone, but is at least a regular one. After listening to the HD 600 I thought that the AKG was something like a consumer headphone. Maybe it's not the best sounding headphone, but it is so precise that a good recording sounds good, and a bad recording sounds bad. It does not make anything better than it is. If you are looking for a headphone for professional use (audio engeneering) I recommend it very much. If you listen to good recordings I recommend it very much. But... If you have chosen to listen to low quality mp3 audio I don'n recommend, because I think you're going to be disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent buy for NEUTRAL headphones Sound is neutral and very clear. Much wider sound stage than other (cheap) headphones I've owned. Not too hard to drive; bass is lacking from iPod output, but my Creative X-Fi Elite Pro does a fine job. They have a 300 ohm impedance which means they need high amounts of voltage with low amounts of current. These are open back headphones which means sound easily leaks IN and OUT. You can be bothered by ambient noise and others will likely hear what you're listening to if within the same room. Construction is semi-modular; you can replace ear pads, cabling, etc. by buying parts through Sennheiser USA (very low cost).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Avertised I currently have the Grado RS1, and the ATH-M50's. The HD 600's have a warmer fuller sound than the RS1's. Wider sound stage. This might be due the RS1's ear pad design, which places the drivers closer to the ear. The RS1's are not known for comfort. Due to the 600's high impedance an amp is needed to really make them sing. I run mine through a Chord Mojo, and Fiio Mont Blanc. I also ordered the upgraded cable from the HD 650's. This cable is a little thicker, and has a 1/4 end plug. A little improvement in sound - maybe? Overall the 600's are very well balanced. I plan on getting the 4 pin balanced cable, and balanced amp to push them to their max. I am very pleased so far. a solid purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sound and Very Comfy! As a long-time owner and lover of Grados (most recently the SR-225s for about 2 years), I was skeptical that these would impress me. I was wrong. I haven't touched the Grados since I got these. The balance is incredible. No, they don't have the almost magical guitar sounds as the Grados, but everything else is improved. Bass goes much deeper and has more punch, vocals sound amazing, and brass instruments?! Wow. They are also about 100x more comfortable than any other headphones I've used(including the Grados, BeyerDynamic DT-225 and Sony MD-7506)- perfect fit. A few things to be aware of: these are 300ohm headphones, so you will need a serious source to drive them properly. An iPod won't cut it here. They also leak a lot of sound (more even than the grados) and let sound in. These are decidedly home or studio 'phones.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound: Perfect all-around headphone Have owned these for about half a month now. Initially purchased the HD700 but quickly returned them after a few days of listening to music, movies/television/video games. The soundstage of the HD 700 was excellent, but the mids were lost in a sea of treble. In comparison, the HD600 is incredibly neutral. Wonderful mids with enough bass to satisfy and highs that never approach irritating. While I'd recommend something decent to drive these (currently using a Schiit Audio Modi/Magni 2 Uber) I was also able to get adequate sound from my phone. Headphone clamp is a little intense at first, but lessens over time. I stretched mine out to a comfortable level by placing them on my computer tower when not in use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous – but needs an amp for the low notes The main feature is that you CAN hear outside voices and noises - which is why you WOULD buy this headphone.� Excellent sound.� Highs very crisp.� Mid range is is clear as any others.� Bass needs an amp. These high impedance headphones need an amp to really get the bass to PUNCH.� Any one who tells you otherwise is blowing smoke up your (you know what).� This applies to ALL high impedance headphones out there that DO NOT not have an amp.� All fellow EEs out there please chime in on this!� � There are a plethora of amps out there but if you are a project person try this one.� Bass Bump headphone amp - YouTube.� You get what to need at a low price - but need to know how to use a soldering iron and a few other tools.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm pleased with the Sennheiser 600s. I wrote a review a little longer than B&H allows and I'm not about to rewrite it to fit. You may find the complete review elsewhere. My review concluded this way: I'm pleased with the Sennheiser 600s. The company would have won a 5 star rating from me if they had included a shorter cable to connect the headphones to the iPhone - the cable that comes with the phones makes the system clumsy. I bought a one meter cable which various rating services said was adequate but I would have preferred to have had one chosen by Sennheiser and included in the package.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, a bit uncomfortable I bought these headphones as an upgrade from my Sennheiser HD570, and the sound is much better. They are plugged directly into the audio out of my computer, for music/movies/gaming. I was afraid the high impedance of the HD600 would demand a headphone amplifier, but they work ok without one. Unfortunately the pressure on my ears & head is much higher than the HD570 so I can't say they are as comfortable. Hopefully over time the spring tension will relax and provide better comfort.
