About the Sennheiser HD 559

Learned from the best

When I spoke to Sennheiser's legendary headphone designer Axel Grell, he told me that the company uses their super-premium models (like the flagship HD 800 S headphones) to inform the design of all of their headphones. You can certainly hear it with the HD 559 open-back headphones. They deliver the company's familiar wide-open soundstage and detailed, yet-smooth mids and highs. There's also quite a bit of bass for a set of open-back headphones — a category that Sennheiser popularized decades ago, and an area where they continue to innovate.

Product highlights:

  • over-the-ear, open-back design for spacious sound
  • 38mm drivers tuned to deliver deep bass
    • Sennheiser's "Ergonomic Acoustic Refinement" (E.A.R.) design sends audio signals directly to your ears
  • padded headband and large, soft velour earcups
  • detachable 10-foot cable with 1/4" connector
  • frequency response: 14-26,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 108dB
  • impedance: 50 ohms
  • weight: 9.9 ounces
  • warranty: 2 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee
  • MFR # 506828

What's in the box:

  • Over-ear headphones (black)
  • 10' Cable with 1/4" (6.3mm) plug (attached to headphones)
  • Safety Guide

Q
Is there a shorter caable for the hd559 headphones?
[ Douglas  Jul 07, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
There is no mention of a shorter or secondary cable for these headphones anywhere. I cannot find information on the plug that connects to the headphones. I don't think one is offered and that they don't encourage you to use a different cable with them. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101

Q
My HD559 has a 10ft cable. is there a 3ft cable with 2,5mm to 3.5mm male ends that will work on them ?
[ Douglas  Jul 06, 2017 ]

A
I'm afraid we don't offer a replacement cable that would work with the Sennheiser HD559 headphones at this time. You may want to try checking Sennheiser's parts & accessories store directly; you can find that on their website here: https://en-us.sennheiser.com/accessories Hope that helps!
