Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
As an upgrade to my home studio, I purchased the Sennheiser HD 518 for its over-the-ear design. The ear pads are comfortable and completely eliminate external noises. The ears do get a bit hot, but this is something I don't mind. It was important for me to find a headset with no noise canceling. I am a voice over talent, and the ability to hear every smack, pop, hiss, and intonation change is imperative. I definitely recommend the HD 518 for direct monitor recording and playback.
Pros: Look, style, comfort, sound
Cons: Ears get hot
