  • Summary: I have had S HD 515 more than 2 months and more I listen, more happy I am. Before I bought it, I had Bose around ear headphones which delivered sound with too much bass, not so crisp high tones and not very good stage. I paid for Bose 110 euro while I bought HD 515 for 90 euros. Before I bought 515 I read very different feedbacks from users.

  • Summary: I was able to borrow these cans for some time. Here's my quick thoughts on them: These cans deliever quite an enhanced, fake sound. At first listen, they seem to have a fairly balanced presentation, until I plugged in a pair of eH350's, and all I could say was "I was missing so much mids and detail." These cans offer little bass extension, boomy upper-bass/lower-mids, a cheap, plastic-sounding mid-range, and acceptable highs.

  • Summary: these are definatly,classical only phones...whilst they have a good level of detail for string based classical,this doesnt extend to other types of music (or "bassy" classical) sounds anemic in comparison to other phones,with an over emphasized treble,and a very tinny midrange and zero bass (much like an old shortwave radio with a crystal headset from the 80s :D )on the plus side tho these are very comfortable and can be worn for long periods of time.

Sennheiser Hi-Fi Stereo Headphones (HD515)

Rand A. Scott, REVIEW STREAM
1 February 2009
  • Excerpt: I recently purchased an MP3 player and while it came with decent earbuds I decided to replace them. After much consideration I chose the Sennheiser Hi-Fi Stereo Headphones (HD515). These headphones are some of the more comfortable things I have had on my head. The ear pads are fit snugly over the ears. The cord is about 3 meters in length which is good. The biggest thing about headphones is the sound.

Superb quality, very few flaws

  • Summary: For A$199 these headphones were money well spent. Listening to instrumental tracks has never sounded better, and also exposes poor audio recording quality, however good recording quality sounds stunning.
  • Pros: Balanced audio spectrum, high build quality, superb instrumental sounds.
  • Cons: Not the best for gaming.

  • Summary: I think this is a great set of head phones. They sound great. If the set is in your price range, it comes highly recommended.
  • Pros: Outstanding balance of bass and other mix of audio. Very clear and crisp sound.
  • Cons: Well, still rather expensive at $100.
