Introduction to Sennheiser Headphones

Sennheiser is a renowned manufacturer of audio products in the USA and around the world. They are not just limited to headphones but also produce some of the finest industry speakers and microphones.

While many of us have come to view headphones purely as gadgets for recreation, this company produces a wide range of headphones all known to be 'Luxury for your ears' and vary in the purpose of use from professional to personal in many different ways (sports, education, home entertainment, recording, etc.)

This review will be divided into two parts:

Part 1- What makes Sennheiser special?

Design considerations: unlike many other products out there, these headphones are not a 'one size fits all' but rather highly specialized headphones for each application. This means, you really should know what you are going to use the headphones for and be aware of all other possible uses in order to make a wise decision in your purchase. So if you are on the move, you may want to consider headphones for mp3 players, but if you want to use them as a DJ, that would lead you to an entirely different set of headphones.

Superior sound quality:  The core function of these headphones is to deliver exactly what was meant between the electronic device and you. Personally, we had a need for headphones that would play sounds in the lowest possible range of frequency (a very specific use) and that really was our main criteria.

Budget friendly:  Relative to their quality and total cost of ownership, Sennheiser would rank amongst the most economical, while not necessarily the cheapest amongst other manufacturers, generally Sennheiser users prefer not to try other brands due to their extreme comfort with the quality of their headphones.

Product material quality: Durability is a distinguishing factor for these headphones and unlike other low-end headphones that don't make it till the end of the month, Sennheiser headphones not surprisingly outlive their electronic gadgets.

Part 2- A quick highlight of the most sought after headphones

What stands out in terms of Sennheiser product ranges is the HD range and less prominently the PXC range.

In our search for the most popular amongst the HD range we have found the following to be highly popular:

  • Sennheiser HD 800: Top notch engineering quality, extremely accurate sound and comfortable, beautifully designed and made. The only drawback we see is the cost, which retails for $1,400.00

  • Sennheiser HD 650: Top of the Sennheiser range, very high tech style and has an extraordinary bass response, very comfortable with two drawbacks: They are heavy, and their cost is within the range of $500.00.

  • Sennheiser HD 598: The style of these headphones are 'wow' inspiring. They are extremely comfortable and have a highly responsive and detailed sound range, they also have a 3.5 mm headphone plug adapter which makes it suitable for a wide variety of uses. Recommended for its price (Range between $150 - $200) and style.

  • Sennheiser HD 595: Known as dynamic high grade performance premier headphones, top of the line product and features the E.A.R. technology with an extremely comfortable cellulose fleece to reduce total harmonic distortion and velour ear pads and high-quality leatherette headband both provide outstanding comfort. Relatively good cost (around $130) with a standard look.

  • Sennheiser HD 280 Pro: Probably the most popular of all the above headphones due to the cost (less than $100) which are similar in the sound quality for general use and have user-replaceable parts such as the cable and ear pads and words with almost all audio playing devices.

In the above reviews, we have mentioned more technical information for the more expensive and highly specialized headphones.

In our search for the most popular amongst the PXC (noise cancelling) range we have found the following to be highly popular:

  • Sennheiser PXC 450: These have a nice build quality and are comfortable. Not very strong Bass and Treble (when they are in noise cancelling mode), very good looking, and cable quality is superior. Make sure shop around for a good deal as they range from $250-$500.

  • Sennheiser PXC 250-ii: These are collapsible noise-cancelling headphones. Mostly optimized for in-flight entertainment as well as MP3, iPod, iPhones and other media players. They are mostly great for travel and are lightweight. They don't cancel as much noise as the higher range products, but unline other products they continue to play even if the batteries die.  Make sure shop around for a good deal as they range from $110-$260.
