Sennheiser HD 630VB
Over-ear headphones with adjustable bass dial
From Sennheiser: HD630VB Headphones
Our take on the Sennheiser HD 630VB by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
The Sennheiser HD 630VB headphones have a closed-back design, so you can take high-quality sound with you everywhere.
Critical listening — not just for home any more
We love the relaxing ritual of slipping on headphones at home and absorbing a classic album. You can sink into your favorite chair, wear your comfortable slippers, and use your best headphone amp. But keeping up with the rapid pace of life means we often end up listening to tunes when we're out and about. Sennheiser's HD 630VB headphones help preserve the potency of the listening experience, whenever — or wherever — you can sneak in your musical fix.
They are the latest in Sennheiser's famed HD headphone series, a favorite among Crutchfield customers and other audio aficionados. The company completed exhaustive research/development and used the finest materials to create a pair of closed-back 'phones that sound wide-open. They're built to excel in a high-quality home listening rig, through a portable high-res music player, or even your smartphone. You enjoy naturally presented sound without bothering others, while external chatter and clatter gets sealed out.
You choose the amount of bass
It's not always easy to get just the right amount of low end. Some recordings really benefit from deep, powerful bass, others don't. Some night you might feel like head-knocking lows, but maybe not the next morning. So Sennheiser included a variable bass control on the left earcup. Spin the fixed rotary dial to choose precisely how much — or how little — bass you want.
High-grade parts for performance, durability, and comfort
Controls on the left earcup include a dial to adjust the level of bass.
Sennheiser's large, state-of-the-art transducers deliver dynamic sound with highs and mids that truly sing. A sturdy, lightweight frame protects them. The earcups and sliders are made of aluminum, while the adjustable headband is flexible and tough. It glides on comfortably and the over stuffed, replaceable ear pads provide a snug cushion around your ears.
User-friendly controls and mic
When listening on a smartphone, it may bum you out if a phone call interrupts the music — but it shouldn't freak you out. The HD 630VB headphones let you quickly answer (or ignore) that call. Above the earcup bass dial, there are one-touch controls for making or taking calls, plus selecting tracks and adjusting volume. And you can talk and listen to calls without taking off the headphones, thanks to the in-line mic.

Overview: The Sennheiser HD 630VB audiophile circumaural (around-the-ear) headphones offers extraordinary sound, luxurious comfort, and unique features not found on other high-end headphones. The HD 630VB's portability and rugged construction allow you to have an audiophile experience at home or on the road. On-board controls and a new variable bass boost dial prevent you from having to get up from your chair or search for your remote to change tracks or adjust the volume. The HD 630VBs come with a 3.5mm-to-6.3mm adapter and a semi-hard clamshell-style storage case.
Closed Design: The Sennheiser HD 630VB audiophile headphones feature a closed design to isolate external noise. This allows you to have a high-definition listening experience in the quiet of your living room, or on a commuter train. The adjustable headband and soft, replaceable ear pads provide hours of comfort for extended listening.
Variable Bass Boost: The most unique feature of the HD 630VB is the large rotary variable bass boost dial on the right earcup that lets you adjust the bass to suit your tastes. The bass boost can be adjusted +/-5dB at 50Hz by rotating the large dial.
On-board Controls: In addition to the variable bass boost, the headphones have music playback and phone controls on the right earcup. These controls are compatible with Apple devices as well as Android and other devices. A two-way switch lets you choose controls for Apple or "other" devices. The center button controls playback, phone calls, and voice control, depending upon the number of button presses or press and hold actions: play/pause, next track, previous track, fast forward, fast reverse, answer/end call, switch between two calls, and reject call. Volume control buttons are located above (volume up) and below (volume down) the center control button.
Headphone Cable: The HD 630VB has a non-detachable, 50" cable terminated into a 3.5mm plug. The cable has a high quality in-line microphone for making and taking phone calls and performing voice commands.
