Open-Back Design

Headphones with an open-back design, allow air to pass through the earcups. This means that Open-Backs do not block any noise from around you, as closed-backs do, and music being heard will also leak outside to people around you. So they can only be heard in a quiet environment.


However, Open-back headphones do sound more natural and open. Open-back headphones create a feeling of space, presenting audio as if you are sitting at a live concert. Audiophiles swear by open-back headphones, and they sound quite different to closed-backs.


These headphones are perfect for critical listening sessions, mixing and mastering music. They have an accurate soundstage presentation and precise imaging.


Needs Amplification

Headphones and IEMs require a certain level of power to sound their best and work at their full potential. When your headphones or IEMs are underpowered, they can sound thin or muffled.


Amplifiers are required to provide adequate power to your headphone or IEMs to perform at their best. Simply put, amplifiers allow a weak audio signal to be boosted to a powerful one.


To put it into perspective, devices such as your phones and laptops come with an amplifier, but they offer very limited output power. This output may not be sufficient to power headphones and IEMs to shine at their best. This is where a dedicated amplifier is required to deliver adequate power to hear your music in all its glory.


Replaceable Cables

A pair of headphones with a replaceable cable has many benefits, and one of them is if the connecting cable has a problem, it doesn’t mean that you have to buy a new one. If the connecting cable gets pulled or damaged, you can replace it and keep using your good-old headphones or IEMs. This way, your headphones will be protected and will last longer. With the advancements in cable manufacturing, you now get a variety of replacement cables with various termination options, lengths and quality.


The Sennheiser HD 600 has earned its esteemed reputation as one of the top choices among audiophiles for several decades. It stands as a remarkable headphone that delivers exceptional performance. With its reliability and precise sound reproduction, the Sennheiser HD 600 is considered one of the finest.

Our Verdict

This headphone is a classic. The Sennheiser HD650 isn't a new headphone, but it's still a favourite amongst audiophiles. The sound signature can be best described as 'reference grade' because so many people over the years have used this as a benchmark for use in the studio and at home. Pair it with a decent tube amplifier to hear it sing.

This headphone costs Rs. 70K with it's cheapest suitable AMP & it's still worth it

HD600 is what, Jeans & T-shirt is to fashion. Comfortable, inoffensive, subtle, required for every day. But it comes at some cost, and most of it is Amplification. Forget about portable use these headphones can sound bad (not up to the mark) even in $1000 Amplifiers.

This headphone needs quality amplification, not in terms of Current (mw@300ohms) but in terms of Voltage swing. So you have to cherry-pick your Amplifier to get the best out of it. This headphone is rated 300ohms at 1Khz and the lower or higher you go the more resistance it shows. The impedance curve is unbelievable for these transducers. These headphones sound dead in A90, most Schit & SMSL Amplifiers. To wake this thing up you need tubes. Not any tube, but OTL. You need a DAC that has the warmth of analog, not some Clinical Topping and SMSL would work. And when you pair this up with a Quality OTL and Analogue Sounding DAC this beauty wakes up and throws everything out of the window.

Sonic Impressions - This headphone is so correct sounding that it makes most players cry. Don't get me wrong Fancy stuff like Soundstage/Imaging/Bass Punch is not there by any means but it produces music unlike anything else. I don't think anybody should include this headphone if they are climbing the audiophile ladder. This is a kind of endgame for just one purpose, Originality. The tonality is so realistic it makes most audio equipment bad. You won't even notice it, but if you grew up with a Dad who built speakers, you can't admire it enough. They sound vintage, realistic, true to life, not big sounding like Planars, every part of the Frequency Range is correct.
The most surprising thing about them is their ability to produce details, I never thought they would produce textures this well being a 26-year-old set but to my surprise, they do extremely well while producing textures, not so much in micro details and microcontrasts.

Don't get this headphone if you don't like recorded music. EDM & modern POP songs don't sound exciting. Everything before 2000 sounds heavenly. Vocals recorded using Dynamic mic sounds good, condenser? not so much. Rock & Acoustic Music sounds phenomenal. The bass reduction is there for a reason and you will notice it if you pair this up with an OTL.

People often talk about lush vocals and I disagree HD650 is still better in that regard but if you want a be all-end music machine HD600 is hard to touch in that regard even being a 26-year-old headphone. But before investing in these headphones think twice.

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!

Sennheiser HD-600: The MYTH, The LEGEND

This is my first high-end audiophile headphone. And it is just incredible. I was confused between this and HD-650. I did a lot of studies and read many reviews, only to be even more confused as many people regarded the HD-600 as the best while others preferred the HD-650. The HD-600 is regarded as one of the best neutral reference, while the HD-650 is a bit warmer. Finally, I put my trust in Crinacle. In his headphone ranking list, he awarded the HD-600 with an A-, which is an extremely high rating if you know how Crinacle does his rating. While HD-650 got a B+. I also had Hifiman Sundara in mind, but it is a planar magnetic headphone, and I wanted to experience a high-quality dynamic driver.
The sound from the Sennheiser HD-600 is absolute bliss. Excellent tonal quality and high fidelity. People generally complain about its absence of bass, but for me, this neutral sound signature is what I seek. I listen to classic rock, alternative rock, metal, and Western classics, and the HD-600 shines in these genres and brings out everything in the music. I am using the headphones with Ifi Zen Dac V2 while connecting it to Apple Music to stream Hi-Res Lossless/Lossless music. As the Zen Dac has a lovely truebass button, it compensates for the lack of bass while listening to bass-heavy music. Moreover, wearing the headphones for an extended period is amazingly comfortable.
Thanks to Headphone Zone, I got this pair of headphones within 20k to make it even sweeter.

HD600 Intimate headphones

They have an ability to sound effortless, even while keeping a very balanced tone. I find the HD600 to be very close to neutral, with a coherence from the bass up to the treble.
There is a light, but still present midbass bump around 100 Hz followed by a progressive roll off below 80 Hz. Modern music that has been recorded with emphasis on the bass will sound fine with the HD600; however, on most other tracks they will definitely sound bass-light or at least slightly under average in terms of bass quality as compared to recent headphones.

The midrange is very engaging and slightly forward. Every time I switch to the HD600 after having spent time with another pair, I am immediately enamored by their character and tonality. However, with time I have started to less appreciate some genres with high density in the upper-mids region (and lower-treble) – around 3-5 kHz. The HD600 can be a bit piercing and too elevated in that region.

Hey Klaus, thank you so much for the amazing feedback! It means a lot to us. We are so happy to hear that you are loving our products and services.

Excellent headphones, but strong clamp force

Sound is super detailed with vocals emphasized. Need to EQ for bass. Burn in is in progress sound profile might change. For 20k, its an absolute steal. Works well with xDuoo x5-01, BTR7 and JDS Atom.
But, Sennheiser has to work on the clamp force of it. I have HD598 which disappeared on head right from day 1. This makes its presence felt and not in a good way. Not able to keep on head for more than 1 hour.

We really appreciate the genuine feedback, we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well!

Best headphones i've had yet, used hd599 & akg k371 before.

i was expecting these to sound fatiguing or not-so-fun sound as they are neutral(according to people on internet), but surprised they sound warm enough and smooth, just like it says on the product page here!
maybe because i got used to bright neutral sound on my iems?

definitely worth saving for!
