Summary: This is an initial review; my opinion may change for the better after more hours of listening. Initially the highs were somewhat harsh and the lows were a bit "boomy", but gradually things are mellowing. I listen to classical music and I am rediscovering my collection of vinyl and finding some real gems. Overall, very pleased with these cans.
Summary: If you want noise cancelling qualities, do not get these. People can hear what you're listening to (and vice versa) if they sit nearby. However, this is the price you pay for the open ear design. They will beat noise cancelling headphones any day when it comes to sound quality.
Pros: Awesome highs and mids, accurate and responsive lows. I love the open ended ear design, it lets my ears breathe and helps acoustically just like it's more expensive cousins, HD 555 and HD 598 offer. These are definitely audiophile headphones.
Cons: The 3.5mm/6.3mm adapter is way too large. Maybe a problem in certain situations
Summary: Bought these to replace old Pro 280's The sound is better especially the bass. Only drawback is that it has less noise cancellation than the 280's so I had to turn up and use the volume control more now.
Pros: Great Sound and bass. Very comfortable
Cons: Very little outside noise cancellation. The connector 6.33mm + adapter is HUGE
Summary: I had to choose between this and hd 558 ,and after consideration i knew the 558 will take my expenses far ,with the requirement of amp and a new source dap to sound atleast good .Also it was very analytical,neutral ...not for me.
I don't know how it fares with different sources but i use it with a mobile[no amp] and it sounds good,but not so with my desktop[onboard].My motherboard is from 2009, so may be new motherboards can provide good output.
Pros: mids,bass,relaxing/indirect [not inside-head]sound,equalizes however you want.
Summary: Good quality, comfortable, sounds great,clear with good separation, bass a bit heavy on some material. on the negative side the vocals distort under the influence of the bass at higher volumes
Summary: Bose as we know is the king of audio. Sennheiser has made a fabulous effort here and if they just refine the size of these headphones a little more, absolute winner. The sound quality is incredible.
Summary: I bought these headphones to use with my PC, iPhone and iPad - so basically for MP3 use etc. They are of incredible quality, and so they're are no flaws with the sound. The packaging and general build quality is also incredible. However, there are a couple of noticeable issues. Firstly, I cannot use them with my phone without removing the case from it. The sound leakage is also quite bad, and it lets a lot of sound out, but lets no sound in (ideal for home use though).
