Our take on the Sennheiser HD6 Mix

by David Brown

The right headphones for the studio

When you're recording, headphones are the crucial link between you and your music. Pro headphones offer accurate sound to help performers and producers focus on their craft. Most have closed-back earcups to prevent sound from leaking into mics, but others feature an open design for more spacious sound. All of them put a premium on comfort, with thick padding on the headband and earcups.

Hear what you're supposed to hear

Accurate sound is crucial in the recording studio. Musicians rely on it to monitor their performance. Engineers and producers need it for mixing and mastering. Sennheiser delivers it with their HD6 Mix headphones. Designed for studio professionals, these headphones offer balanced sound that doesn't give special treatment to the high or low frequencies. That means the drummer can trust the sound of the kick, snare, and toms he hears in his monitor mix. Likewise, the producer can lose himself in the details of the mix as he fine tunes each track for the final stereo mixdown.

Keep your ears open and your 'phones closed

The closed-back design of the HD6 Mix headphones is made for the recording process. You don't want sound leaking out of your headphones into a live microphone. Similarly, musicians usually want to hear only what's coming through their headphones. The snug-fitting earcups fit completely around your ears, further keeping outside noise out and music in. The interchangeable velour and leatherette earpads also offer supreme comfort that won't have you cursing your headphones before you lay down your first track.

Two cables are better than one

Choose from straight and coiled cables when connecting the HD6 Mix to your mixing board, interface, or headphone amp. Each extends to an extra-long 118 inches and can be plugged into either the left or right earcup. This gives you increased setup flexibility in the studio so you can bop your head to the beat without worrying about yanking your headphones out of the console.
