Sennheiser HD 600 Overview

Audiophile-quality professional stereo headphones, the Sennheiser HD 600 utilizes two-layer diaphragm technology to radically reduce surface born resonance.

The HD 600 is an ideal choice for the professional recording engineer, providing an uncolored and spatially accurate rendition of program material, especially classical music.

2019 Redesign Sennheiser 600

By Charles
Rated 5 out of 5

These are redesigned of the previous marbled headband headphones. i think they look better than the previous gen and the sound seems to be the same. Good for the money but just make sure you have a good AMP/DAC to drive them to their full potential.

Natural, Accurate Headphones

By Jeffrey

I compared the Sennheiser HD650s and the Grado Hemp headphones to the HD600s and after breaking in all three came to this conclusion: the HD650s have a (slight) bass hump with inadequate definition, and the extra bass intermodulates with the midrange and high end, rendering them for me anyway not real or dynamic enough, so I quickly eliminated them (even though they have mechanically at least a better cabling than the HD600s). That left a shootout between the Grados and the 600s; after rather a lot of listening from CDs and vinyl to both, I came to the conclusion that the Sennheisers were more accurate and real sounding, although the Grados were no slouch to be sure. In fact, having bought the former first, I ordered the Grados wanting them to sound even better than the 600s, and certainly the cable and strain reliefs on the Hemp cans are much better mechanically than those on the 600 and the exotic wood was beautiful, but ultimately I found the 600s more dynamic and real sounding, with the Grados offering a lusher but slower sound that, while somewhat seductive, just didn't make my foot tap to the music as much (a very important criterion for me).

BH keeps sending open boxes

Not sure why BH doing that, but it keeps sending an open box with someone's hair inside. This is just unacceptable. Especially during COVID time. Other than that looks like those headphones are high quality made.

Sound Good, Feel Good!

Not an audiophile, but there’s feel amazing to me, both sound wise and on my head. Soundstage is the best I’ve heard so far, and it does great for extended listening. Got some pain points initially when I had glasses on, but found the sweet spot so it no longer happens!

These headphones are great!

I am an amateur sound engineer. I've spent the last few years looking for equipment with better sound, but not being able to afford 'the best'. My Kali speakers are good. I have K&K headphones that I thought reproduced sound well. But..... these are so much better! Clear bass response down to lower frequencies. Sparkling highs. Solid mids. What else can one ask for?

Great sound, ok build, no case

By Zachary

Really accurate representation of the mid-range. These are pretty darn flat from about 150Hz up to about 7 or 8kHz. I feel comfortable making EQ decisions on them. Bass starts to roll off noticeably around 100Hz but they don't sound thin. Not good for tracking or listening in noisy environments due to the open backs, but fantastic for reference while mixing. Build quality is honestly kind of disappointing. Compared to my Beyer DT 770s, these feel kind of flimsy. Lots of thin plastic in the headband. We'll see how they hold up over time. Not a pair of headphones you can just throw in a bag. I wish they still came with a carrying case.
