Product Description
In 1991, Axel Grell joined Sennheiser and designed the HD 580 Precision: the headphone that would launch a much-loved series—and the peak of the company’s audiophile headphones for more than 25 years. Four years later, to mark its 50th anniversary, Sennheiser released the HD 580 Jubilee, which would later become the HD 600 and lead to the HD 650 Read More

Seriously Great; Replaced my Closed-Backs as Daily Drivers
The funniest thing about this is I only planned for these to be my secondary drivers for when I would want to use an open back, such as voice chatting with friends or on Zoom calls for classes since I can understand how loud I am. My normal daily drivers are Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80 ohms with Dekoni Choice Leather pads on them...and these things completely replaced them. It has that exact sound signature I was looking for in headphones. A good amount of bass and mid presence with a heard but not forward amount of mids. Which, after playing around with Philips SHP9500s, I was pretty much expecting all open backs to be bright given their design nature. This thing proves it wrong, and it's by far the best $170 I have spent period. Bass booms, but still retains much of its detail thanks in part to the open-back design and the space from the driver the stock pads give. The mids are present with a good level of separation between all the instruments that share the frequency range. The treble is present but not so much that sibilant "s" sounds and high hats get harsh, like they tend to do with my Beyers with Dekoni Leathers on them do. The soundstage is not wide considering the design of it (more on that in a minute), but it's very directional. Listening to recorded live tracks, as well as playing games like Thief with EAX emulated via OpenAL, it's a very immersive experience. In fact, the sound staging was miles better than my 770's despite it being much closer to my head than those were. Going back to games like Thief Gold, I was able to better position where patrolling guards were. So needless to say, these will be great for gaming too as well as music and video content. The cord length is perfect at about 4.5 feet. It's not too short, but it's not seriously long either, a complaint I had with my DT 770's with that irritating 10 foot long attached cable. Plus, it utilizes the same detachable cable standard as HD 650's and the like so after-market cables are very much do-able and not very expensive. Going back to the design thing I mentioned earlier, it's odd for me to say open-back because the elements of its design almost makes it more semi-open than fully open. In particular, it's because of the thin layer of foam lining the outer part of the ear cup which blocks the mesh "window" into the driver. This is the reason there's more bass despite it being open-backed. I've heard you can take them out via modding, but honestly these are so great with stock pads and the foam inside, it begs the question: "Why would you do that?" As far as cons go, I found the clamp force a bit much for open-back headphones, but it's nothing too severe and you'll get used to it as the band gets flexed from usage. So in a way this somewhat a non-con since the problem sorts itself out the more you use or by prematurely stretching out the earcups from each other. Legit the only actual lasting complaint I have with this product is that the quarter inch adapter isn't a screw-on, which makes it a pain to remove from my Schiit Magni 3+ whenever I want to swap with my Beyers. It gets annoying after a little while to pull and have the quarter inch stuck in my headphone amp. I would've preferred a screw-on style, but with the amount of quality in these headphones for the price they're selling for, it's a total nitpick by comparison to all the pros.

Nice headphones
Nice headphones but quite tight at a glance. Should I expect to be less firm with the use?

better than 660s considering the price!!
great price and great product. Actually prefer these to the 660s , but can not tell you why. maybe it's just the price!! haven't tried modifying yet, but will probably take out the sponge from the grill to add some top end. These sit perfectly between the 600 and 650, giving a good alternative for less money, and easier to drive. actually like the glossy black headband.

Great Product, NOT Long Lasting
The headphones are actually awesome. However, it was just under a year of regular use for the sound to go out in one side, i.e. some sort of short or breakage in the wire. The replacement wire is expensive, and the warranty wasn't available for purchase when I originally bought the product. I'd stay away from any future headphones from Massdrop for this reason. I should add that the sound bleed is pretty loud.

They're open back so sound bleed is basically a given
