Sennheiser 600? or is there better for the price?

PostWed Apr 13, 2011 2:29 pm

Hello,

I am looking at getting a really good and clear sounding pair of headphones.

So far I have been instructed that the Sennheiser 600/650 are the best for the price.

I found the Sennheiser 600 for $302.

Can anyone speak for a better pair for the same(ish) price? :)

Thanks,

I think when comparing high-end headphones it becomes very difficult to talk about "better". Whether you take a Sennheiser, an AKG or another one at that end of the scale, they are all first class. The differences between them are nuances and highly subjective, so if you do want to get the best buy FOR YOUR TASTE, your only option will be to go to a high end audio store and listen to some. Or find a dealer who will let you have two or three different ones when you agree to purchase one of them.
Personally I am using a Sennheiser HD 560 Ovation-II, a very old model (20 years??), and I am still extremely satisifed with the sound.

Best wishes

Hello Reiner,

Thank you for your imput.

I have heard some fantastic reviews about the Sennheiser line. What it comes down to for me is that I want extreme clarity, but also the ability to hear outside the headphones. This is so the external speakers and supercube subwoofer that I will have can add some warmth to the sound.

Again, thank you for your comment. This helps! :)

AKG 702. They are comfortable, you can hear the outside world, and you get superb sound.
