Beautifully unconventional

Sennheiser's HD 1 Over-ear Wireless headphones are a striking mix of classic style, tried-and-true sound, and modern-day conveniences. They sport a cool throwback look and have built-in Bluetooth for life on the go — you can listen to music cable-free. Sennheiser's NoiseGard™ technology uses tiny microphones and advanced circuitry to cancel out extraneous noise as you move.

It'll help you focus on the enjoyable, well-balanced sound signature, which has a slight nod toward the low frequencies for some extra punch.

Top Quality / Great Sound / Great Noise-Canceling

Ryan from Sumter, SC on 1/4/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I started to travel more for work lately. In the past, I had a pair of Bose Q15s that rocked for NC but SUCKED using them for music. A cheap $15 pair of earbuds I bought for the gym sounded superior over the Q15s. A few years ago the Q15s stopped working and looking at them it seemed a wire broke. This was disappointing being I rarely used them. Looking for another pair of NC cans I first looked at the Sony MDR-1000X. Great reviews and I have always enjoyed Sony products. However, they were sold out. This forced me to expand my search, and that is when I came across the HD1 Wireless. They were on sale, and I figured if they are not everything I am looking for I would just send them back. From the moment I took them out of the box, I have been very impressed. BT hookup is a breeze, and the feel/quality seems to be top-notch. Coming from the Bose Q15s, I did not expect great things regarding music. With them being wireless I thought I might use them more than the Q15s with the tv or maybe an audiobook. Frankly, I am blown away by the sound. My go-to cans for music are a pair of Grados GH1s. They will still be my music cans. However, I also have a pair of Grados 325e, and the HD1s are on par with them. One complaint I do have. The cable that is included looks and feels like a cheap 50 cent cable. I wish they would include a solid cable to go along with the solidly built cans. Buy them, and you will not be disappointed.

Pros: Top Quality / Great Sound / Great Noise-Canceling

Cons: Cable to plug it in is CHEAP.

Comfortable & Affordable

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Product was ordered as Open Box. This copy appeared in every to be brand new. Over the 20 years I've been a Crutchfield customer, "Open Box" has generally been a great savings. Now, for the headphones: music thus far comes through with a full dynamic sound similar to my Sony Professional cans which cost much more than these. Since I am still getting its wireless feature to work, I've deducted a STAR for that reason and 1 STAR off for my uncertainty of contact points beneath the tiny mult-function buttons holding up with repetitive use. I wear tiny behind-the-ear aids which seem to stay out of the way since these cans have great ear coverage!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I gave the HD 1 five stars, because it has what I value most: great sound - both wired and using bluetooth. The battery life is excellent. The fit is very comfortable. The look is stylish as well. My son has the Bose Quiet Comfort 35, which is very good, the noise cancelling was better than the Sennheiser. However, the Bose noise cancelling put some sort of pressure on my inner ear, which was uncomfortable - deal breaker for me. Jmo, the HD 1 is the best combination of sound quality and noise cancellation that I tried. Very pleased.

Pros: Excellent sound, very comfortable, good looking.

Cons: Noise cancelling not as good as the Bose Quiet Comfort 35.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The headphones looked and felt great right out of the box. The Bluetooth connection to my receiver was practically effortless. Also, after disconnecting, when the headphones are in range they automatically connect to that source. The are very comfortable and were worth the price I paid. I would give them 5 stars but they do not get loud enough for my taste. I will keep them however because the sound quality is very good and clear. I would recommend anyone to purchase these cans.

Cornelius from San Diego, CA on 9/13/2017

Great Headphones with audiophile audio. Wireless connectivity works well, sound is not completely block out with active noise canceling but enough. If you have read reviews comparing to Bose their headphones have better noise canceling compared to these. But these shine in the audio aspect. Try wired to a good headphone amp for a simulated studio effect with the right CD.

Pros: Great Audio

Cons: Good active noise canceling, not the best though.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are the headphones that you buy when you are SERIOUS about how music sounds... If not you waste your money on a marketing ploy by a wealthy rapper. These headphones sound excellent, and the only reason I did not give them a perfect 5 Stars is... The control button. It's garbage. Having just one button to control multiple features is a disaster waiting to happen, and it did with mine. Two weeks after getting mine, the button stopped working. I pressed 3x to go back... Nothing. I pressed twice to go forward... Nothing. All id hear was the wonderful lady in my ear "Volume Max" or "You have between 18 and 20 hours playing time" That was NOT helping me. So Sennheiser loses points for that. But Crutchfield is Fantastic.. A new pair was immediately shipped out. We'll see how these work out. But If you care about how your music really sounds.... These are the wireless headphones you'd look at, seriously.

Pros: Perfect sound quality. Talking on the phone, was really clean and crisp. The noise cancelation feature is too perfect.. You really DON'T hear anything around you.

Cons: The one control button...

Superior headphones

Bought these headphones and have used for over a year. Great quality sound and reliability. Bluetooth connection flawless with S7 Edge. Noise cancelling is good.

Features

Overview: The Sennheiser HD 1 Wireless headphones have a closed circumaural (over-the-ear) design with Bluetooth technology and NoiseGard Hybrid active noise cancellation. The headphones come with a straight connecting cable for those times when you can't go wireless, a USB charging cable for the internal battery, a soft cloth drawstring pouch, and a semi-hard clamshell case for storage.

Bluetooth: The HD 1 Wireless headphones have Bluetooth version 4.0 + EDR which pairs to your phone or audio device in seconds. You can make and receive phone calls and stream audio wirelessly in a range of up to 33', depending upon environmental conditions. Bluetooth 4.0 is compatible with devices having Bluetooth versions 1.1 through 4.0. The headphones have the following profiles: Headset Profile (HSP 1.2), Hands-Free (HFP 1.6), Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP 1.5), Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP 1.3), and Device ID Profile (DIP 1.3).

aptX: With aptX audio coding, the HD 1 Wireless headphones deliver clean, crisp audio in full stereo. If your Bluetooth audio source supports aptX, the headphones will automatically stream music wirelessly in aptX high-quality mode. If the device is not equipped with aptX, the music will be streamed in the standard quality mode.

Near-Field Communications (NFC): If you are using the headphones with a device that supports NFC, you can wirelessly connect the device by touching, or placing it within close proximity of, the "N" logo on the front of the left earcup.

NoiseGard: The HD 1 Wireless headphones feature the NoiseGard hybrid Active Noise Cancellation. NoiseGard is a combination of two noise-cancellation systems with a total of 4 microphones. The two microphones on the outside work as a Feed-Forward system that reduces high-frequency noise, while the two on the inside of the earcups act as a Feed-Back system to reduce low-frequency noise. Together, the two microphone systems reduce ambient noise by up to 25dB over a broad frequency spectrum. The NoiseGard hybrid Active Noise Cancellation system only works when the headphones are powered on. Even with the power off, the closed, around-the-ear design shuts out much of the external noise.

Rechargeable Battery: The HD 1 Wireless headphones are powered by an internal, 3.7VDC 600mAh Lithium-Polymer rechargeable battery. The battery charges in about 3 hours via USB power (using the supplied Micro USB cable) from a laptop, an AC-powered USB charging port, or a mobile 12-volt USB charging port. While charging, you can continue listening to music or making calls from your smartphone via a Bluetooth connection. A fully-charged battery provides approximately 22 hours, using both Bluetooth and Active Noise Cancellation. You can keep track of the remaining battery life through the multi-color LED and voice prompts.

VoiceMax: The headphones utilize VoiceMax technology with two built-in microphones for voice communications. With two microphones, speech quality is enhanced, and external noise is removed. VoiceMax allows you to conduct clear phone conversations, as well as voice control functions with your smartphone, without the need of an external microphone.

Phone/Music Controls: You can control your streaming audio and phone calls using the 3-way multi-function button on the bottom of the right earcup. The button uses the same protocol as most other headphone remote controls with a pattern of button presses, however some smartphones may not support all functions. Phone controls allow you to accept, end, and reject calls, and redial. If you receive a call during another active call, you can choose to accept the new call by ending the active call or placing it on hold and toggling between the two calls. Music controls include play/pause a song, play the next or previous song, and rewind or fast-forward a song. Phone and music controls are only available if the headphones and smartphone are connected via Bluetooth.

Audio Cable: If you can't listen to the headphones wirelessly, you can still enjoy your music through a wired connection. An attachable 58" straight audio cable is provided with a right-angled 3.5mm mini-plug. In Active Mode, you can still take advantage of NoiseGard hybrid Active Noise Cancellation when using the headphones with the audio cable, however, the phone and music control functions will be disabled. In Passive Mode, Active Noise Cancellation is turned off. An Airline audio adapter is included so you can plug into in-flight entertainment on most domestic and international airliners. Phone and music controls are not available when the audio cable is plugged in.

Design and Materials: The HD 1 Wireless headphones are equipped with lightweight brushed stainless steel sliders, a luxurious, real leather headband, and redesigned ear cushions with memory foam. The headphones fold into a compact package that you can place in the silky drawstring pouch or the semi-hard clamshell case with a zippered closure.
