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 Legendary Headphones for the Price While I've only had the Sennheiser 600s for two weeks, I can honestly say that for the price they are a no-brainer purchase and even competes with headphones priced up to $1000. The Sennheiser 600s are very, very response headphones that do need power to drive them properly---I'm using a P5 Parasound preamp. They do not reproduce or accentuate deep, heavy bass; but instead, provide a narrow sound stage with incredible clarity. My only negatives are is that I would prefer a wider sound stage, and listening to my favorite Rush tracks, Neal Pert's cymbals were muted and short lived.

    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 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Audiophile Headphones This is my second pair of HD600s they are, by far the most accurate, comfortable headphones you will ever find. These phones are honest, they will quickly point out the shortcomings of your recordings. Excellent for classical music and jazz, but do not expect the artificial bass boost of hip hop style headphones. These are 300 ohm headphones with replaceable cables. The cord is 10 feet long and uncoiled. It has an integrated inch adapter that looks like it belongs there. The comfort is truly luxurious, and I find that I could easily listen for 8 hours straight(and have) while forgetting that I have them on. They are an open design so I am not isolated from others, and there is no back-pressure on the ears that you often feel with closed phones. I have tried thousand dollar headphones, and they offer neither improvement in sound, nor comfort. Do yourself a favor, hook these up to a good amp and listen to a binaural recording instantly you will know that it will be many decades before any speakers or surround sound can even approach this realism. Not a good match for hip hop or metal

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from HD600 - awesome for mixing. HD650 for listening only! If you are mixing music, don't second guess yourself and end up returning the HD650's for a pair of the HD600's. The 600 is for mixing on. You cannot mix in the 650's. The 650's have a very wide sound stage that isn't natural and a very enhanced low end and high end and scooped upper midrange which makes them sound too good not very far from accurate or flat. The HD600 is also way better than the Focal Spirit headphones. The HD280 would be my second choice. The HD600 has just a bit more detail and a more accurate sound stage. The HD280 is a little more mono sounding compared to the HD600. They both have a very accurate frequency response and I have had extremely good luck working with both sets of headphones. They are both way better than anything from Sony or AKG or Beyerdynamic or Focal or any of the other companies but do listen to them all for yourself. B&H has a great listening station down in New York and the staff there are very helpful in getting you the chance to hear all the headphones in person. They have most of the really top popular models on their listening station and it's well worth your time to listen to them all like I did before you make your decision.
