Wide frequency range and neutral sound

The Sennheiser HD 600 is a pair of elegantly designed, open-back hi-fi headphones with an over-ear design and computer-optimised drivers that is manufactured in Ireland in accordance with stringent quality standards which include the selection of optimally matched driver pairs. This modern classic boasts an impressive frequency range that goes from 12Hz up to 40.5kHz – beyond the normal audible range of the human ear at both ends of the spectrum – and clearly demonstrates Sennheiser’s commitment to offering premium products. The tonal neutrality of these headphones leaves the audio signal so unaltered that, according to Sennheiser, it is as if the HD 600 disappears from the signal chain once the user presses "Play".

Clear as a bell

As well as delivering a particularly high level of acoustic transparency and clarity as a result of their open design, the Sennheiser HD 600 headphones also keep non-linear distortion levels as low as 0.1% and make a convincing case thanks to numerous other details, including their handmade 42mm drivers with aluminium voice coils that allow both a rapid transient response and short decay phases. With a sound pressure level of 97dB, these headphones admittedly cannot be considered particularly loud, and their impedance of 300 ohms means that they will need to be connected to a power amplifier with a correspondingly high output voltage.

For those who just can’t stop

The Sennheiser HD 600 equipped with soft circumaural velour pads are the perfect fit for users looking for headphones that are comfortable to wear over long periods of time, and their modular design, which ensures easy maintenance over many years, is sure to find favour with headphone enthusiasts who value the advantages of a long-life product. These headphones feature a replaceable cable with two-sided routing, which of course means that they may not be the best choice for those who are used to the freedom of movement provided by designs with single-sided cable routing – for home use, however, this consideration should not be too critical.

About Sennheiser

In June 1945, Prof. Fritz Sennheiser founded the Wennebostel Laboratory, which initially produced measuring equipment. Commissioned by Siemens in 1945, the young company developed the MD-1 microphone, which was launched in 1946. After the development of further microphones, the company was renamed Sennheiser Electronic in 1958. Two years later, Sennheiser introduced the MD 421 dynamic microphone, which is still in production today and still held in high esteem by many sound engineers. Further groundbreaking developments, such as the HD 414 headphones and the MD 441 microphone classic, hugely enhanced the company’s international reputation, eventually making Sennheiser one of the leading manufacturers of microphone and headphone systems in the world.

For home, HiFi, and professional use

Thanks to their weight of just 260g without the cable, the Sennheiser HD 600 headphones are comfortable to wear even for hours on end, and the listening pleasure they offer goes beyond home hi-fi applications: According to the manufacturer, these headphones can additionally be used as a reference for both professional audio playback and as a standard for analytical signal evaluation, which means that mixing engineers can also give them serious consideration. What is more, the threaded 6.35mm jack adapter can be removed to reveal a 3.5mm mini-jack connector, making the HD 600 headphones suitable for day-to-day use with smart devices and home entertainment systems, provided that these have a sufficiently high output level.

Amazing, beautiful reference headphones, but with a few flaws.
Fluttr 29.06.2021
I love these, a lot. From the way they look to every detail of their sound, they're truly beautiful. They have sliky smooth, characteristic treble that doesn't fatigue your ears one bit even at high volumes, and I say this as someone who *really* likes treble. Their mids are beautifully balanced and neutral, the bass (well, what's there of it) is defined and not muddy in the least, they sound incredibly clean, precise and pleasant.

However, there are some issues:

The sub-bass is quite disappointing. To the point I might actually recommend against these if you are going to listen to bass-heavy music like EDM. There is just hardly any real deep body to the sound, it feels a bit shallow and empty. This works *amazingly* for genres like classical or acoustic stuff, and I would never want other headphones than these for those genres, they're beautiful for that. However, I did find myself using a corrective EQ setting to boost the bass a little bit, just to make it go along a bit better with some of the genres I listen to.

Also, the soundstage isn't that great. I've used much cheaper in-ear monitors that have better soundstages, it really doesnt sound all that wide or free or spacious. It's still pleasant and doesn't feel boxed in, but it is something I would expect to be better in headphones at this price range.

All in all, I love these, and would recommend these to most people. They're great as reference headphones, they work well for music production and I feel like they're something you won't regret having around, as they have very clear strengths that I feel are very hard to rival in this price range. However, they do lack in some aspects, so maybe relying entirely on these if you listen to bass-heavy music, for example, might not be your best bet, unless you're willing to help out with corrective EQ.

The pair that I kept sounds phenomenal though, my mixes translate great and it's a pleasure to listen to music on these. Flat, fast and transparent.

HD600 2019 Version
Dae-Su 29.05.2021
Product: this is one of the most important models in the audiophile community, now HD600 has been stylised, incorporating the black case finish and moving its production to Romania, Sennheiser claims that the sound remained the same as the previous models, who knows? Only measurements of its frequency response can state this affirmation. However is impossible to neglect the almost absence in sound colouration while reproducing liquid music through these headphones, if not some little bright tonality; nothing that cannot be corrected by 4/5 points of an EQ. Moreover, comfort is 10+, I came from a pair of Grado sr125 that squeeze like a clamp, earpads to the ears, turning out to be painful after 1hour of music listening, now I can go potentially for several hours straight, no problems.
