With neodymium magnets for powerful dynamics, and lightweight aluminum voice coils, these sophisticated headphones deliver a smooth, accurate response that'll please audiophiles and casual listeners alike. The HD 570 weighs in at only 7.4 ounces, and features padded, velvet-like earcups — you'll enjoy long listening sessions in total comfort.

The HD 570 also includes a single-sided cord that's detatchable, so it's a cinch to untangle. Plus, if the cord gets damaged you can easily replace it instead of shelling out for a whole new pair of headphones.

Headphones: Great sound whenever and wherever

The right pair of headphones can solve a number of problems: listen to music and movies at night without keeping your family awake, take your favorite music with you while jogging or doing yard work, or get relief from distracting noise while working or traveling. Replace the cheap eabuds that came with your portable player with a high-quality pair, and discover more detail in your music. Or choose a set of full-sized 'phones for rocking out at home. Noise-canceling models use built-in microphones to pick up background sound and then cancel it out electronically.

Product Research



Design: These headphones feature an around-the-ear design, with cotton velour covered ear cups.

BioNetic Design: Sennheiser headphones adjust to the shape of your head, with their joints, flexible materials and extendable arms. Comfortable cushions provide optimum comfort in those places where sturdy material would rest on your head.

Diaphragms: The diaphragms of dynamic headphones consists of a very thin film that is caused to move by an attached coil. The less intrinsic oscillation this causes, the purer the sound reproduction will be. Sennheiser diaphragms are made of Duofol, a material specially developed by Sennheiser. As the diaphragm shape is optimized by computer, intrinsic oscillation is avoided to a very large extent.

Double-wound Aluminum Voice Coils: The HD 570 headphones have voice coils made of aluminum, an ultra-lightweight and very durable material. But Sennheiser takes this a step further and only double-winds these voice coils. Such a low-mass coil, together with an ultra-thin diaphragm, creates a part that can change direction very quickly, allowing more of the electrical music signal to be converted into sound waves.

Magnet System: These headphones use computer-optimized neodymium-ferrous driver magnets for deep bass and clear, crisp trebles. 

Sintered Damping Elements: Sennheiser's high-quality headphones use a specially developed (patent pending) sintered bass damping element, which consists of semi-melted plastic pellets. This design reduces unwanted resonance for a cleaner sound.

Cable: Sennheiser connection cables are made of oxygen-free copper with Kevlar strands wound around the metal for added durability. The contacts are gold-coated for greater conductivity. The connecting cable is detachable.

Replaceable Parts: Sennheiser headphones are modular for long service life. Ear cushions, headbands, cables, and sometimes even driver elements are easily snapped out so new ones can take their place.
