Excellent Headphone

First, I get to listen to a wide variety of headphones, aside from a couple of "higher end" headphones of my own. There's an annual audio show here in Southern California that has a very large pavilion dedicated to headphone listening. Almost all headphone, headphone amplifier, and DAC manufactures have a space there. While I didn't get to listen to the Sennheiser HD579 there, I have auditioned numerous Sennheiser headphones there and always liked them. I went for the HD579; because, I wanted a smaller lighter headphone to use at my desk that I could plug into an amp/DAC, and listen to music files on my laptop or other devices. Crutchfield doesn't categorize the HD579 as an "audiophile" headphone. However, my experience with the HD579 indicates that most anyone will really like the way this headphone sounds. The HD579 is very Sennheiser, clean and accurate, and it's extremely comfortable. I can wear it for hours and hours. This is my experience so far. I figure with more brake in time it can only get better than it already is. In conclusion, while the HD579 isn't quite where something like the Sennheiser HD800S or most any other "audiophile or high end" headphone is, it's really close. It punches way above it's weight. It isn't bulky, and it's really comfortable.

Pros: At it's price point, it's tough to beat.

Cons: None
