Overview

Our take on the Sennheiser HD 559

Learned from the best

When I spoke to Sennheiser's legendary headphone designer Axel Grell, he told me that the company uses their super-premium models (like the flagship HD 800 S headphones) to inform the design of all of their headphones. You can certainly hear it with the HD 559 open-back headphones. They deliver the company's familiar wide-open soundstage and detailed, yet-smooth mids and highs. There's also quite a bit of bass for a set of open-back headphones — a category that Sennheiser popularized decades ago, and an area where they continue to innovate.

Product Highlights:

  • over-the-ear, open-back design for spacious sound
  • 38mm drivers tuned to deliver deep bass
    • Sennheiser's "Ergonomic Acoustic Refinement" (E.A.R.) design sends audio signals directly to your ears

2 questions already asked

There is no mention of a shorter or secondary cable for these headphones anywhere. I cannot find information on the plug that connects to the headphones. I don't think one is offered and that they don't encourage you to use a different cable with them. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101 [ Paul  Jul 10, 2017 ]  Staff
I'm afraid we don't offer a replacement cable that would work with the Sennheiser HD559 headphones at this time. You may want to try checking Sennheiser's parts & accessories store directly; you can find that on their website here: https://en-us.sennheiser.com/accessories Hope that helps!
