Excerpt: An incredible pair of headphones. These phones are extremely comfortable and have literally replaced the speakers on my desk. I can't justify using speakers when the quality of sound these headphones bring to the table is so exemplary. I was scared to buy headphones originally, because in my experience headphones felt like strapped speakers to my head and blasting sound to my ears.
Summary: The sennheiser hd595 are the best headphones I have ever owned! They are extremely accurate, and extremely well balanced..i have used the hd600, and totally think these are better! If you want a super headphone, then get these! I got mine on sale for $180..but the original price was $250...but man, are they worth it! Use a headphone amp, and they sound much better! Looking for new headphones? Get the hd595! You'll be happy you did...
Summary: This Sennheiser HD595 is excellent. I paid € 190,- for it and it's worth every buck. De bass is clear and defined (not boomy), mids are good, treble is very clear and dynamic. No need to say more.
Summary: The sound was really excellent. However I attached the connector to heavy multimedia speakers on the computer, they dropped to the floor often, resulting in bent headphone connections. I now find I cannot pull the cable out and put a new one in as you can with some models. It has to be fixed at the factory. Also, the headphones are not particularly comfortable to wear.
Summary: I bought my HD595 about 1.5 year ago based on some good reviews in some forums. I always like it very much, but didn't know exactly how good it is compared to other more expensive ones in the market. The other day I walked into this arguably the most expensive and renowned hi-fi shop in Sydney, Australia, (their expensive systems are easily as expensive as small houses), and wanted to listen to their headphone amplifiers (I didn't understand why people need them).
Summary: I have these cans hooked up to an amp but this is not necessary. If you want to really get the most out of these headphones lossless quality files are the way to go. They sound great out of the box but they really start to sound full once you burn them in for about a 100 hours or so. There is a short time during the burn in period that I found the headphones had started to sound dull, but right after that they really kicked in and now they seem to be there.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Large Soundstage, Lightweight
Summary: They are a good pair of headphones, but they are $130 more than my AKG's, and the difference in sounds quality is not material at all. In fact, the bass isn't very detailed, and doesn't sound separate from the other tones (mids, highs). They seem to not exist discretely, one just drowns the other out. This is what happens on $50 headphones. It seems that until you get into the $500+ territory, sound quality is pretty similar between headphones.
Summary: Good product for the price. Marked difference between this and the HD-600s, but at half the price well worth it. Well constructed and a tight fit at first, but loosens up over time. Chose this product after trying about a dozen different headphone based on sound quality alone, but this is also well constructed. Gave it four stars as mentioned before, the HD-600s are so much better. Also be aware these are open headphones, so that people around you will hear the music.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Value, Great Sound, Stylish
Summary: Ok listen, Grado SR-80 are good, akg k420 are even better, but this one easily kicks them both. Read more in my blog, www.hifireview.org. My main criteria for comparison is "musicality", messured with help from the "tune dem" method. The look closed, but they do have an open construction.
