Honest sound for a fair price

  • Analytical and honest sound
  • High wearing comfort
  • Plastic feels cheap

Very nice headphones with great sound. Good recordings sound fantastic and bad recordings sound… well, bad. These headphones are no frills and don't make things more beautiful than they are. As long as you feed him (or her) a diet of high quality music, audio enjoyment is guaranteed. These are also great headphones for critical listening purposes (mixing/mastering/checking your mix/etc). The neutral and honest representations let you know quickly where things go wrong. Don't expect super deep bass, but they are certainly present and not only audible but also tangible. Only downsides are the somewhat cheap-feeling plastic. It probably won't be cheap stuff, but my plastic Sony headphones feel so much better. Furthermore, the cable is really too long and has a bit of a mind of its own. Only add 15 euros to the price for a nice aftermarket cable because you will really want it. Another possible downside is that you can't easily use these headphones on all devices. Well, it's possible, but the sound will be way too soft. My iPhone on maximum volume was just not enough. In my Teac DAC it worked fine and also in more professional devices such as synths and mixing consoles you will have no problems. The 150ohm resistor just needs a kick in the butt to get the best out of it. That is almost impossible with your phone without an amp. For this money, there are few open-back alternatives that are honest and reproduce audio in this high quality. Certainly not inferior to headphones well above 300 euros. Recommendation!

Great sound, but not as standard headphones

  • Good sound
  • works great with any phone or laptop
  • comfort

Simply great sound. Perfect for listening to music. Also works without problems from your phone, laptop, desktop, everything. Comfort is OK but not fantastic. It does not clamm hard enough and therefore hangs on your head. After a while that will hurt. Only use it if I really want to listen to pure music. For other things like a youtube movie I prefer to use something else.

I am satisfied with it.

  • Neutral sound
  • Less bothered by heat
  • Neutral

Neutral headphones for audiophiles looking for an honest sound. I bought it for that because of mixing my own music productions. And as a cheaper alternative to the HD 6 series. (Seems to have more character, which in turn is negative for my purpose) I'm happy with it. However, the more demanding buyer may have to look further, for example the cable is limited but can be disconnected compared to 6 series.

quality to price

  • NEUTRAL SOUND: No exaggerated bass - perfectly balanced for "instrumental trance" ॐ
  • WITH CABLE: Perfect for connecting to an external sound card from Roland and the like or any other hi-fi
  • NOT WIRELESS: Relatively little freedom of movement due to cable (I knew this of course)

First impression is more than good! Sound quality is to my liking and I'm fairly critical about that, so that says something! Quality to price: Considering the lack of gadgets relatively expensive, but this is a price that you certainly want to pay if sound quality is of paramount importance.

Great buy if you know what you want.

  • Great Sound
  • Sit comfortably
  • I knew that in advance, But with open house headphones you hear the environment.

Straightforward, no hassle with settings, charging or pairing of your BT

Positively surprised

  • Long cable
  • Great sound quality
  • Not so convenient to carry outdoors due to the long cable and adapter

Overall very happy with this purchase. As a music lover for many years, I wonder why I never bought a pair of headphones like these before. I now hear so many things in music that I couldn't hear on my hyperx cloud 2s, for example, and certainly not on my earbuds. Highly recommended. But mainly for home use, the long cable and adapter make it quite inconvenient to walk around outside.

Super sound when used in a quiet environment.

  • Super sound quality
  • Sit comfortably on your head
  • The quality of the cable could be a bit better

I got these headphones specifically for the sound quality and I also only use them at home for music production. It's less suitable for listening to music on the go, but I didn't get it for that either.

recommended also considering price / quality

  • Compared 10 brands, always end up with Sennheiser
  • low weight, which makes it comfortable to wear
  • 6.3 mm plug would not have been necessary.

The wearing comfort is excellent despite the larger shells (over-ear model). Deliberately chosen with wire as connection problems with BT were often reported in reviews. (I experience with TV sound-to-Dynaudio installation: drop outs!) I don't walk, but I am listening and have equipment at hand, hence my choice. If you really walk a lot, wireless is useful. (but more expensive...)
