Newegg lied

Andrew M., Newegg
31 March 2011
  • Summary: One of the main reasons why I bought these cans was to receive the free earbuds with the mail-in form since I was originally looking for just ear buds. Since I could spend only $60 for quality headphones AND quality earbuds, I went for it.
  • Pros: -Headphones sound great, good build quality, break in period isn't long (approx 40 hrs). -The quality is amazing for what I paid ($60).
  • Cons: -3.5mm adapter has a very thick body, so plugging it in to headphone jacks on computers are often difficult because if they are recessed AT ALL it will be nearly impossible to get a full connection.

Not quite 5*, but 4 seems too low

Behrad G., Newegg
17 March 2011
  • Summary: The 6.3mm plug is the natural plug, and the 3.5 is the adapter. Kind of wish it was the opposite.
  • Pros: Hands down the most comfortable headphones I have ever worn. Sounds good. They also seem durable.
  • Cons: Bass needs a bit of a boost, but sounds great other than that.

Set my expectations too high

Jon K., Newegg

  • Summary: I like these headphones and would recommend them but don't expect a steal here.
  • Pros: They sound pretty good (see below); comfortable; sturdy.
  • Cons: I bought these headphones based on the excellent reviews. I was expecting too much I think because the treble could be a little crisper, and the bass a bit punchier.

Durable, Awesome Quality. Longgg Cord.

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: My girlfriend has some HD555's, these are very comparable. If you compare these with an X-Fi to the HD555's on onboard sound then these are the clear winner. A head to head comparison makes things a little more complicated, but the HD555's are a better headphone by a little.
  • Pros: I've had these for somewhere around 3 years now and have never had any problems with the cans or build quality. They sound great. I've used them daily with an X-Fi, HTC Hero, and laptops and they sound great all around. The sound is very balanced with very crisp highs and warm lows. They are defi...
  • Cons: The cord is extremely long. Kind of a pain when you want to wear them with an iPod on a plane or some small devices. The connector is very big as it goes from 6.3mm to the 3.5mm using an adapter. Could be pretty annoying if you're trying to use with smaller devices or a laptop. I recently had to ...

Awesome sound, long chord

Michael C., Newegg
3 January 2011
  • Summary: I debated between these and the 428 and ended up getting these because the reviews said the sound quality was better. I really wanted the isolation that a closed can offers, but in the end I didn't want the thin chord and I didn't want to sacrifice quality like I did with my Skull Candies (which...
  • Pros: Sound quality for the price is outstanding. I paid just about the same price for a pair of Skull Candy cans and they can't compare to these. They are very, very comfortable and I can wear them all day with no fatigue. Delicious bass and mids.
  • Cons: The chord is very, very long. I have to keep it wrapped with a tie, but it's just an annoyance. More annoying is the 5 inch plug (incl. adapter) when I plug into my laptop or PC jack. And the adapter is NOT iphone friendly, which is a bummer, but I'm not going to walk around with these all that m...

User Review

  • 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.

Sennheiser HD-515 Headphones

GeorgeW.Korper, Rate it all!
11 December 2008
  • Summary: I find these headphones to be very comfortable. They have good depth, so I use them for the 'live performance' feel. I also find them adequate on the airplane. The long cord is great even though at first I was annoyed when I used it on my Ipod.

Good for the price

Matthew H., Newegg
25 September 2008
  • Pros: At 30 dollars, these headphones can't be beat. I bought these things YEARS ago, like in 2003 or 2004, and they lasted until a few months ago, and that was because I mistreated them. They are comfortable, durable, and most importantly, they sound good.
  • Cons: At 30 dollars, none. At 70, it might be worth paying the extra 30 to get the 555's.
