One of the most highly reviewed headphones of all time, the Sennheiser HD 600 Audiophile Headphones are everything you’ve read about, and more. With fluid and balanced sound applied to everything from kick drums to guitar solos, you get less bass oomph than from the Denon D5000, but the HD 600 still packs more than enough punch to let you enjoy the full audio spectrum without the interference of an over-emphasized low-end.
Built with cushy velour earpads, a multi-section headband, and an open design, the HD 600 stays comfortable for hours of listening. As the earcups tilt on two axises, you get perfect driver placement no matter your head size. The housing is high quality plastic over a lightweight metal frame, bringing complete durability and some sneaky style thanks to the steel blue finish. Best of all, the HD 600 comes in at half the load of the HiFiMAN HE-500, so you’ll never worry about carrying that weight.
When you invest a sizable sum in a high quality device, you want to be able to customize and repair your headphones as the need arises. With these cans, you can. When the headband cushion wears out, you can buy an official Sennheiser replacement for just over $10. If your pet bear gnaws through the cable, it detaches at the earcup for easy swapping. Should you accidentally blow out the drivers with your new amp, Sennheiser even sells replacement HD 600 drivers for $62.95. With a few well-timed tweaks, the Sennheiser HD 600 Audiophile Headphones are about as close you can get to Buy It For Life audio equipment.
