Description

The Sennheiser HD 599 are headphones with an open sound box. This open design provides a natural, spatial reproduction of the music. Ambient noise can still be heard though, and the headphones leak music. This makes the HD 599 especially suitable for use at home. The full-size ear cups cover your ears with ample space, so you can wear the headphones for a long time. Thanks to the frequency range of 12 to 38,500Hz, both high and low tones sound detailed. 2 cables are included: one with a 3.5mm plug, the other with a 6.3mm plug.

    Top quality you can expect from this brand!

    • extremely comfortable
    • good build quality
    • beautiful clear sound
    • suitable for use with smartphone
    • would benefit from some minor eq adjustments

    I am very pleased with this Sennheiser.
    It is almost perfect in every way. comfortable enough to wear for hours and the sound is crystal clear.
    If you're looking for thick bass, this might not be the best choice. Here the bass is just nicely balanced with the other frequencies. There is a small increase in the high bass (around 250hz) and the low mid (500hz) which makes the whole a bit too dark for my taste, but this is easily solved with an equalizer. I myself do 125hz -2db, 250hz -4db, 500hz -2db and 2khz +1.
    This makes the whole thing just that little bit cleaner and brighter.
    Women's singing voices in particular sound phenomenal. I myself like to listen to pop, rock or country like things like avril lavigne or the band perry. They come into their own with the hd599. I often listened to good quality music in ears before and that all seemed fine until I heard this sennheiser. In one word "amazing"!!
    They are fine to use with portable devices or directly in a computer or laptop, but there is still a lot more to get out with a good amplifier or sound card I have noticed.
    All in all, I would definitely recommend the hd599 to anyone looking for a natural and clear sound for their music.

    Super quality!

    • Fits perfectly
    • Sound is very good

    First open-back headphones. Takes some getting used to the sound but feels very natural after a while. Lows, mids and highs are all perfect too.

    These can be perfectly powered by your smartphone or computer but to get the most out of these headphones an amp would be handy, I'm currently using a USB dongle (sound card) from my previous headset that broke.

    Great sound, great headphones

    • Very good sound
    • 2 cables, very easy
    • Perfect wearing comfort
    • Very light weight
    • Applicable to many devices

    These headphones are used by me on a Hi-Res Digital Audio Player with Neutron as app. As a listener of classical music in particular, it is important to hear all the details well and at the same time be able to listen to an orchestra at full power without incurring hearing damage. All this is no problem for the HD 599. The spaciousness (soundstage) is also excellent. Choirs, singers and singers are very well represented. Both the bass sound and mid and high tones are reproduced well.
    I've tried a number of headphones over the years, and failed each time, but these headphones are a winner. The fact that 2 cables are included, a long and a short one, is excellent.
    The headphones are very light, you hardly feel you have them on. You can wear the headphones for hours without any problems.

    Sennheiser maintains its quality on all fronts.
    • connection of the cable to the telephone is locked.
    • "ear pads" fit well and comfortably around the ears.
    • "ear pads" are removable, good hygiene is possible.
