About the Sennheiser HD 660 S
A classic revisited
A classic revisited
Many of my Crutchfield co-workers credit Sennheiser's legendary "HD 600" series as their gateway into the world of truly high-end personal audio. These HD 660 S headphones keep the spirit of their stellar predecessors alive. But they feature a tweaked design and completely revamped driver system.
The result is a smooth, timeless look and — more importantly — even greater musical detail. When paired with a high-performance headphone amp, you get great clarity with pinpoint imaging.

Overview: The Sennheiser HD 660 S high-end headphones feature an open design to give you an exceptionally natural, spatial, and accurate sound. Unlike closed, noise-isolating earcups, the HD 660 S's earcups have a specialty steel mesh, molded to the natural shape of the acoustic chamber, to provide an open environment. The HD 660 S features new, lower-impedance drivers with extremely light aluminum voice coils. The transducers are matched within +/- 1dB tolerances for consistent sound. The headphones come with two 10' cables, one with the new 4.4mm balanced connector, and a hinged storage box.
Angled Transducers: The HD 660 S has angled transducers to resemble the perfect positioning of a pair of reference monitors to put you in the center of the sweet spot. The ear cups are elliptical to follow the shape of the outer ear, with plush, velour-covered padded ear cushions for hours of listening comfort.
Headphone Cables: The HD 660 S comes with two interchangeable, 10-foot cables. One cable has a full-sized 1/4" plug. A 1/4"-to-3.5mm adapter is included for listening to portable devices. The other cable (also 10') is terminated with a new 4.4mm Pentaconn balanced connection that can be used with some high-end digital audio players (such as the Sony TA-ZH1ES) and headphone amplifiers (including the Sennheiser HDV 820). Both cables are constructed with OFC copper (oxygen-free copper) with its high conductivity for best signal transfer. The cable's outer jacket is coated to greatly reduce handling noise.
Storage Box: The HD 660 S has a sturdy, hinged box with cut-out foam padding for storage of your headphones and attached cable.
