Excerpt: I was looking for a Hi Quality set of head phones to listen to music. I am an audiophile but I also play acoustic guitar. I wanted a set of phones that would be accurate and musical. The HD600's are both. I also own a pair of HD 280 pro and they both have the Sennheiser sound. If you are looking for a forward sounding in your face sort of thing look ells were. Both the the HD 280's and HD600's are laid back and slightly warm not overly Basie.
Excerpt: I bought this for my Kawai MP11. I originally tried Shure SRH440s and found them uneven and buzzy at higher dynamics. The Sennheisers have a cleaner, sweeter sound, and are more consistent throughout the dynamic range. They also stay in place better than the Shure headphones if my head moves while I play. People who aren't moving around might find them too snug, but for me that's a plus.
Excerpt: Overall great sound, especially beautiful high end. Generally flat color, very descriptive of the spectra. Great for mixing, good for mastering. One catch is the noise that the foam makes when you wear them - the only way to achieve silence is to be very still. Still would highly recommend!
Excerpt: I returned these headphones because, although they sounded great, the arrived with an 1/8'' to 1/4'' adapter that didn't quite fit properly, as well as either a broken or poorly connected cable into the right headphone. together, the the problems resulted in intermittent and highly degraded audio, similar to the worst of the worst mp3s. for $, i would have hoped that they showed up fully functional.
Excerpt: I use this product for mixing video and sound in Adobe After Effects and it gets the job done perfectly. I have an o2 headphone amplifier.ODac and that combination sounds like my uncle's pair of expensive loudspeakers. However, It is no slouch when connected directly to the output jack. Highly recommend.
Excerpt: it may be worth paying the $ extra for the HD-650s for the better cable. But the 600s sound excellent and are very comfortable. You might be able to get the same sonic quality for less but not with the nice ear pads I suspect.
Excerpt: These headphones offer great clarity, separation between voices and a flat, uncolored response ideal for studio work. They do have a high impedance, so a decent headphone amplifier is necessary to achieve the necessary gain without distortion. I'm using an Aphex Headpod 4, and they sound great, plenty enough headroom to drive these phones without distortion.
Excerpt: In the tradition of Sennheiser's audiophile headphones, these phones deliver transparent clean sound, without undue coloration. They are comfortable for extended wear. My only minor complaint is that the cord ends in an 1/8 inch plug, with a 1/4 inch adapter attached. I'd prefer the main plug to be 1/4 inch to plug into mixing consoles without the adapter.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight
