Did you know?

Fully open headphones give a more ‘open’ and spacious sound quality. (Closed headphones isolate the wearer from the surroundings and normally have a more ‘in head’ sound). Remember to burn them in for improved definition and clarity.

Sennheiser recommends this headphone for...

...those who have a passion for headphones and for music – and would like to truly feel as if they were in the room with the artist or musician. These headphones are an ideal choice for the professional recording engineer recording classical music.

Compatibility

The HD 600 is intended for home use rather than portable listening. The HD 600 can be connected directly to hi-fi systems of the highest quality, in particular DAT, DVD, MD and CD players. A dedicated headphone amp is definitely preferable, but not essential.

    Sennheiser HD 600 - Open Monitoring Headphones
    The HD600 was originally introduced about 15 years ago as a development of the very successful HD580. It was then rated as one of the best headphones around and I can say it is still very, very good.

    Comparing it to the HD595 and HD555 models that many will have heard you are immediately aware of the added clarity and dynamics to the music. The HD595 are "polite" headphones with a slightly rolled off bass and extreme treble and the HD600 still have this Sennheiser house sound. The HD600 is more punchy and detailed with a better bass, but not the treble emphasis that some headphones have that makes them aggressive. If you look on the internet you will see some claim Sennheiser have subtly changed the HD600 and HD650 from about 2007 to give them slightly more treble energy and take away what was known as the "Sennheiser veil". However, if you like a lot of treble these headphones are not for you. They excel at giving a balanced detailed sound without any emphasis on a particular frequency range. The only slight criticism is that the soundstage is a little narrow. By this I mean the music is more "in the middle of your head" than some more expensive headphones. This is one area that the HD595 and the newer HD598 are slightly better than the HD600.

    They clamp your head more tightly than the HD595 but they are still very comfortable once you get used to this. Resist any temptation to bend the headband! A few weeks of use and you will not notice the extra pressure.

    In comparison to the HD595 they appear to be much better made. The headband is partly metal and the overall finish is luxurious.

    I'm writing this review to hopefully help anyone considering these headphones, since I spent a long time trawling through online reviews, including Amazon UK and Amazon.com. The problem is not being able to demo the headphones, so you are left taking an expensive gamble. I won't go into the design, durability or the fact that these are open headphones (so if you are listening next to the wife in bed you can expect an elbow in the ribs!).

    The bad news is that the HD 600s sound less than impressive straight out of the box. Even after 3-4 days you might be regretting your purchase. Don't send them back! Keep them plugged in to your hifi and just let them play. I burned them in virtually non-stop after receiving them and it wasn't until after 6-7 days that they really changed their sound. Previously it was like the music was coming from behind a wall - I couldn't hear any definition or clarity. Gradually, this clarity will begin to show itself, while the bass and mids will also improve dramatically.

    The HD 600 is basically a fantastic all-rounder. Everything is balanced - bass is perfectly adequate and not over-emphasized (nor is it lacking). Mids and treble are really good. For most genres of music these are superb. If you really want deep, pounding bass then perhaps these are not for you, because they do not artificially enhance the bass.

    Is there a veil? (which many people believe the HD 650 to have) Well, I think they are slightly on the 'warm' side so not totally neutral or analytical, but it's all relative. I believe them to be strong at all frequencies, without excelling at one in particular.

    Hello. I got these HD600's today after many years of owning relatively cheap & cheerful headphones - my favourites up until now being Sennheiser's 25 quid HD202's. The first question I asked myself was....was it worth upgrading to a professional pair at 8 times the price?

    Hmmm, dunno.

    The HD600's initially felt less comfy than the HD202's and also sounded a bit thin but then, after just a couple of minutes, it hit me. I heard what I should have been hearing all these years - the music itself. Not the headphones. Obvious, really. And putting the HD202's on after a few minutes of wearing the HD600's was like strapping blocks of wood to the side of my head.

    Yes, definitely worth the price. Incredible.

    I love my HD202's (I have 3 pairs for when I have people recording in my home studio). They were the most comfortable headphones I'd ever worn and sounded very respectable for the price. But having used these HD600's for the last 3 hours all I can say is, if you like the sound of Sennheiser you really should try these amazing headphones.

    Really.

    I raised the issue of the "sound" of a brand because I've learnt that manufacturers of audio equipment tend to have a signature "character" in the sound of their headphones, monitors, preamps, microphones or whatever. We, as consumers, naturally gravitate, over the years, towards certain brands - my favourites are Sennheiser, Bluesky, Focusrite & Rode respectively - if I had to describe them all I would say they have an honest clarity to their sound but are not overly clinical or sterile and there's a beautiful silky quality which is never harsh, honky or boomy - plus they all have products which sound great without you paying silly money.
