Sennheiser HD 1
Over-ear headphones with Apple® remote and microphone (Black)
Our take on the Sennheiser HD 1 by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
Retro style, modern features, classic sound
The Sennheiser HD 1 headphones sport a cool throwback look, but have plenty of modern features. They cleverly fold into a bundle that's easier to take with you. They are made of rugged, heavy-duty parts like stainless steel sliders and a leather headband. And they employ slightly larger diaphragms than Sennheiser typically uses. So you get a balanced, refined sound that has a little extra punch in the low end for today's tunes.
Comfortable, relaxed fit
Sennheiser gave these headphones larger earcups than their popular first-generation Momentum headphones. It's an easier fit over more people's ear. There is also a slightly larger headband, which helps these headphones rest on your head without clamping too tightly.
Take calls and control your iPhone®
Connect the detachable cable to your Apple device, and you can take advantage of the three-button remote's full functionality. Play and pause music, skip forward and back, and adjust the volume. The built-in microphone also lets you take calls with your iPhone, easily controlled with the remote.

Overview: The Sennheiser HD 1 circum-aural headphones are stylish, high-quality headphones. The headphones are lightweight and comfortable, with durable metal construction on the earcup and earcup sliders. The ear pads and headband are covered in luxurious, breathable leather. The HD 1s give you high-performance audio reproduction with rich, detailed sound. They come with a soft storage pouch and a semi-hard clamshell case, plus a detachable cable with an in-line remote that is compatible with iPod/iPhone/iPad.
Note: A version that works with Android devices, including Samsung Galaxy, LG, HTC, Sony, and other tablets and smartphones is also available.
Design: The HD 1 headphones have a closed-back, circum-aural (Around-Ear) design which isolates much of the background noise. The headphones are equipped with high-performance neodymium magnets. The impedance is lowered to 18 ohms so it will play portable devices at high volumes without overdriving the device's tiny amp. Hinges above each ear cup allow the headphones to fold up for storage in the included space-saving carrying case.
Detachable Cable: The HD 1 Around-Ear headphones are equipped with a detachable 56" audio cable with a slender, straight 3.5mm plug. The cable has an in-line Smart Remote and microphone. The cable connects to the right earcup via a 2.5mm sub-mini plug that twist-locks in place to prevent accidental disconnection.
Smart Remote: The 3-button Smart Remote lets you control iPod, iPhone, and iPad. The outer buttons control Volume Up and Volume Down, while the center button controls music playback and phone calls.
