Our take on the Sennheiser HD 650

The HD 650's drivers are hand-picked to ensure precise left/right matching, and have lightweight aluminum voice coils for superb accuracy and fast transient response. You'll experience wide, open sound with extended bass that complements everything from sweeping orchestral arrangements to high-impact movie soundtracks. The metal mesh on the back of the earcups leave them open to prevent unwanted vibrations from tainting the sound. The Kevlar-reinforced, oxygen-free copper cord ensures a clean signal transfer, and ends in a full-sized headphone jack — perfect for high-end audio components.

High-quality craftsmanship

The elliptically shaped earpads fit over the ear, and block out ambient noise so you can focus better on your music. The luxuriously padded headband and earcups makes these 'phones ideal for long hours of comfortable music listening. And they sport a titanium and silver finish that's stylish as well as durable.
