  • Summary: I bought these a few years ago on impulse without listening to them first. I had owned several pairs of Sennheiser phones in the past, and I figured if I didn't like the way they sounded I would give them to my twelve year old as "gaming" headphones. When they arrived, I was pleasantly surprized. They looked great, not as high quality looking as my buddy's 650s but for what I paid - about $30 - I thought had gotten a real "steal".

  • Excerpt: I've been using these headphones for seven years. They are my first headphones. I bought them because they are Sennheiser! Don't expect them to be Beyerdynamic. They don't have a very analytic sound but can be found in many studios because they sound very musical and cover a wide frequency range. I have never regretted having ...

  • Excerpt: Before buying these headphones I had owned a couple of pairs of Sennheiser headphones and they were good and I liked them, so I thought I'd buy a pair of Sennheiser HD500. When they arrived I unpackaged them and took them out the box and was pleased with what I had saw. Before me laid a nice pair of headphones that were good on the eye. I tried them on and they were extremely light and comfortable that it felt like i didnt have them on, how I wish that was case.....
  • Pros: Look great, comfortable
  • Cons: Awful sound

  • Excerpt: I use these headphones for 7 years now. I bought this headset, my first, because Sennheiser, Sennheiser is what. We can not ask him to be a Beyer. So it is not particularly analytical, it has no place in gold in the home studio but it is very musical and covers a large frequency band. At the time, I was young (12 years), and I ha...

  • Excerpt: I use this headset for about a year. The use I made is quite limited, it is connected to a Promega 3. So I use it rarely, it allows me to disconnect the speakers not to disturb the neighbors at night! I find it comfortable to wear and I appreciate the ease of changing the cable in case you get caught in your feet ... As for sound I think it's no...

I possde this headphone for several years and I am very happy. I really do not see how one can find the infamous headphone if you have at least an ...

  • Excerpt: What a surprise! You reassure me! It's not just me who finds this completely infamous headphone! He has no precision, but is embedded in the low frequencies and spatial level is not very good either .... Not have the HD25 or the HD600 nonplus .. nan but for the price even when it's serious.
