Overview

Our take on the Sennheiser HD 569

A sound choice

What do you look for in a set of on-the-go over-ear headphones? If you don't need a lot of bells and whistles, and really just need something that feels nice and sounds good — consider the Sennheiser HD 569 closed-backs. When I spoke to Sennheiser's legendary headphone designer Axel Grell, he told me that the company uses their super-premium models to inform the design of all of their headphones. So when you connect these HD 569 headphones to your phone (or better yet, a portable headphone amp like the Audioquest Dragonfly v1.5 black), you'll enjoy that signature Sennheiser sound — wide soundstage, detailed mids, smooth highs. Also, the generous earpads make a nice, comfortable seal, so sound doesn't leak out, and bass gets extra emphasis.

Product Highlights:

  • over-the-ear, closed-back design helps seal out external sounds and reinforce bass
  • 38mm drivers tuned to deliver deep bass
    • Sennheiser's "Ergonomic Acoustic Refinement" (E.A.R.) design sends audio signals directly to your ears
  • padded headband and large, soft microfiber earcups
  • 2 detachable cables:
    • 51" miniplug cable with in-line one-button remote/mic for music and phone calls
    • 10-foot listening cable with 1/4" connector
  • frequency response: 10-28,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 115dB
  • impedance: 23 ohms
  • weight: 11.7 ounces
  • warranty: 2 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

What's in the Box:

  • Over-ear headphones (black)
  • 10' Cable with 1/4" (6.3mm) plug (attached to headphones)
  • 51" Cable with in-line remote/mic (straight 3.5mm plug)
  • Safety Guide

Very pleased. Using with a Dragonfly & a Jitterbug. Surprised at how much more of the recording space I heard. Fits well.

Features

Overview: The new Sennheiser HD 5 series of headphones feature a contemporary design with a soft, padded headband and ear cups. Featuring Sennheiser's proprietary transducer technology and E.A.R. (Ergonomic Acoustic Refinement) design, the HD 5 series headphones deliver excellent sound quality from your smart device or home stereo system. The HD 569 model comes with two interchangeable cables: a 10' cable with a 1/4" (6.3mm) plug for your home stereo, and a 51" cable with an in-line remote/mic and 3.5mm straight plug for your portables.

Closed Back Design: The HD 569 headphones feature a sound-isolating, closed back design that keeps ambient sound from spoiling your listening experience, while at the same time, keeping the music inside your headphones so it won't disturb others. Sennheiser's E.A.R. technology directs the sound directly to your ears to give you a natural sounding listening experience, similar to listening to well-placed loudspeakers. The high-end transducers used in the HD 5 series delivers deep, satisfying bass with clean, smooth mids and highs.

Stylish: The elegant look of the HD 569 is highlighted by the large soft padded detachable ear pads with comfortable black microfiber covers. The wide padded headband adds to the overall comfort.

Interchangeable Cables: The versatile HD 569 comes with two cables. The high-quality 10' cable has a full-size 1/4" (6.3mm) plug, designed for plugging into your home stereo equipment. You can also use the headphones in the recording studio for mixing or monitoring live performances. The shorter, 51" (1.2m) cable has a 3.5mm plug and an in-line remote/microphone to let you control music and make calls on your smartphone or other portable device. The 1-button remote is compatible with both Android and iOS devices. The single button lets you play/pause your music and skip to the next track, plus accept or reject incoming phone calls. It has additional functionality (fast forward/reverse, and skipping to the previous track) for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Have always held Sennheiser in high regards and the specs, price and comments for this model were a great match for my upgrade needs. Appreciate finding it and look forward to hearing it. [ James  Jul 22, 2018 ]
Have enjoyed my Grado SR80's (i and e) but thought I'd take a step up, plus go closed back for less bleed-through. The review in Inner Fidelity caught my attention. It turned into a toss up between these and the Audio Technica ATH- M50x. I'm looking forward to their arrival. [ Jon  Jul 11, 2018 ]
closed back great brand good price [ Stephanie  Jun 06, 2018 ]
I have a pair of Sennheiser HD555 (open back) and am hoping for the same quality of headphones with closed back for isolation purposes. Hopefully the HD569's will do the trick [ PAT  Mar 17, 2018 ]
Advice from Doc on brand sound, and online comments and critic writings. I have Sennheiser HD 555s which I like a lot but I need a closed-back headphone for listening in bed. [ DAVID  Nov 16, 2017 ]
Sennheiser reputation. Technical specifications compared to similar products. Price point. [ Jack  Mar 03, 2017 ]
