About the Sennheiser HD 560S

Smooth, spacious sound and a great value

Sennheiser has long-proved that great-sounding headphones don't have to cost an arm and a leg. These HD 560S open-back 'phones deliver accurate, well-balanced sound at a price that's more accessible than some high-end headphone choices. I haven't heard them yet, but I'm excited to — their sound signature is inspired by a Sennheiser classic, the premium HD 660 S headphones

The lightweight, well-padded Sennheiser HD 560S serves up detailed, accurate sound.

Smooth, spacious sound and a great value

Sennheiser has long-proved that great-sounding headphones don't have to cost an arm and a leg. These HD 560S open-back 'phones deliver accurate, well-balanced sound at a price that's more accessible than some high-end headphone choices. I haven't heard them yet, but I'm excited to — their sound signature is inspired by a Sennheiser classic, the premium HD 660 S headphones

Sennheiser developed a brand-new dynamic driver for these headphones, but the results should be familiar. They're tuned for clear, detailed sound that's smooth and natural across a wide frequency range. But where the HD 660 S delivers a more immediate soundstage, these headphones offer a larger, more spacious presentation.    

Lightweight design with a snug, nicely padded fit

At just over eight ounces, these headphones are also smaller and lighter than some of the heavyweights you'll find in this audiophile class. They sport a snug, secure fit to keep the drivers properly aligned with your ears. But the headband and earcups have extra cushioning, including ear pads made of soft, velvety cloth.   

Performs best when properly powered

Like with all high-performance headphones, the HD 560S will sound their best when connected to a separate headphone amp. If you're worried about an amp adding cost to your headphone setup, there are some nice bargains out there. And these headphones have two connection options: the detachable cable features a 1/4" headphone plug, and there's also a 3.5mm miniplug adapter included. 

I'm anxious to try them with the compact, powerful iFi ZEN DAC that I use in my home setup. That headphone amp/DAC combo pairs up really nicely with the HD 660 S 'phones, so it seems like a natural combo. And the versatile AudioQuest DragonFly plug-in USB DAC/amps offer some nice portable options.

Features

Overview: The Sennheiser HD 560S over-ear headphones feature a new 38mm driver with a specialized polymer blend diaphragm to give you clear, detailed sound, especially in the higher frequencies (above 10kHz). The open-back design gives the headphones a wide, natural soundstage. The HD 560s comes with a detachable 3-meter cable with a 1/4" plug, and a 1/8" (3.5mm) plug adapter for listening to your portable devices.

Transducers: The HD 560S's 120Ω drivers are made with strong magnets that deliver a solid bass response. The polymer-blend transducer membrane provides a truly linear excursion for the accurate reproduction of the high end. Sennheiser's E.A.R. (Ergonomic Acoustic Refinement) angled driver alignment is like sitting right in the sweet spot of your listening room.

Headphone Cable: The HD 560S comes with a detachable 10.5' cable terminated with a heavy-duty 1/4" plug for connecting to your home audio gear or headphone amplifier. At the headphone connection, the cable has a 2.5mm sub-mini plug with a twist-lock to keep the cable from accidentally pulling out. The flexible 1/4" to 1/8" (3.5mm) plug adapter snaps on to the cable whenever you want to listen your digital music player or other portable device.

Ear Cups: The over-ear headphones sport ultra-comfortable velour covered ear pads that softly surround your ear. The ear cups are ventilated to keep your ears cool, even during long listening sessions.
