Sennheiser HD 600 Review and Specs

Among many other devices, these headphones seem to be pretty attractive since they are open-back which means they might have an incredibly wide soundstage. My Sennheiser HD 600 review will tell you about some other benefits and disadvantages of these wired over-ear headphones.

Features

The first thing you notice when you see the Sennheiser HD 600 specs is their super high impedance which is 300 Ohm. When it comes to frequency response, this feature is another advantage of Sennheiser HD 600. The device produces the sound in a range of 12 Hz - 40 kHz. The sensitivity of the appliance is 97 dB.

Sound

Whether it’s rock or classical, jazzy or acoustic, hip-hop or pop, it will sound great. Sennheiser HD 600 provides an incredibly accurate representation of the music you are listening to. They have what I call a “true-to-the-track” or simply natural sound profile. Sometimes, there is a little mid-bass hump that’s hardly noticeable at all.

Connectivity

The audio cable that should be used for these headphones is 300 cm/9.9 cm long. It can be easily detached. The considered headphone model has a 3.5 mm jack.

Comfort and design

Perhaps, these headphones are not the lightest you have ever worn but they are not heavy for sure. The weight of the device is 260 g/9.3 oz. The adjustable headband will help you to make the device fit your head size. The level of headband clamp is pretty secure but does not apply too much pressure on your head and ears. When you suddenly turn your head or lean over to grab a cup of coffee, these cans will stay firmly in place.

Let's talk about some negative aspects. Sennheiser HD 600 cannot be folded although it comes with a carry case. The headphones do not have a microphone which makes it impossible to use them for talking on the phone. Plus, the device is not equipped with any buttons for control.
