Our take on the Sennheiser HD 600 by Crutchfield's Dave Bar
An audiophile favorite
A long-time favorite among discerning listeners, the HD 600 headphones are an excellent choice for pro-audio recording engineers and home audiophile music lovers alike. Sennheiser's exacting design standards and construction quality ensure outstanding performance. The HD 600s will dazzle you with their ability to convey music's dynamics and emotion. Deep, effortless bass anchors your listening experience while the headphones' rich midrange and airy treble help render instruments from acoustic bass to soprano saxophone and electric guitars with stunning realism.
Superb driver design delivers high-definition sound
The HD 600s' drivers boast lightweight aluminum voice coils for superb accuracy and fast transient response. You'll experience wide, open sound that complements everything from sweeping orchestral arrangements to high-impact movie soundtracks. The metal mesh on the back of the earcups leaves them open to provide added spaciousness and prevent unwanted vibrations from coloring the sound. The Kevlar-reinforced, oxygen-free copper cord ensures clean signal transfer.
The elliptically shaped velour earpads fit gently but snugly over the ear. The padded adjustable headband and earcups make these 'phones ideal for long hours of comfortable music listening.
Great head set...soft round the ears and sweet sounding!

Overview: The Sennheiser HD 600 audiophile-grade headphones are optimized for high-resolution recordings, and are ideal for active listening sessions or master engineering work. They utilize several high-end technologies to provide superb performance in any environment.
"Open-Aire" Design: The HD 600 headphones feature an "open-aire" design to give you an exceptionally natural, spatial, and accurate sound. Opposite of a closed, noise-isolating earcup, the HD 600s have high-quality, open metal mesh grilles behind the transducers for an extremely transparent sound.
Internal Components: The headphones utilize a computer-optimized magnet system to minimize harmonic and intermodulation distortion. Neodymium-ferrous magnets give you optimum sensitivity and an excellent dynamic response. Extremely lightweight aluminum voice coils ensure excellent transient response.
Headphone Cable: The HD 600 headphones come with a detachable, 10-foot oxygen-free copper (OFC) cable, reinforced with Kevlar fibers for strength and to eliminate contact noise. The cable is terminated with a 3.5mm miniplug, and comes with a 1/4" adapter.
Storage Case: The HD 600 has a handsome, hinged case with cut-out foam padding for storage of your headphones and attached cable.

Why did you buy this?
Had Sennheiser headphone before...and price looked good! [ MICHAEL B. Nov 26, 2016 ]
Read a lot of good reviews that these are very high quality, audiophile level headphones that are very accurate and true to the music without adding any bumped up bass, yet are smooth enough so they won't be bright sounding. [ Michael L. Mar 21, 2016 ]
Excellent Stereophile review. [ sean Feb 27, 2016 ]
