Designed for Absolute Clarity
The Sennheiser HD 600 is the preferred choice of professionals for reference listening. A manifestation of Sennheiser’s passion for perfect sound, it remains the global benchmark for analytical listening in technical and hi-fi applications, even over 20 years after its launch.
Translating Features into Outcomes
The HD 600 has been meticulously crafted to provide engineers and audiophiles with an unbiased assessment of all upstream elements in the audio chain. Engineered to seamlessly integrate into the experience as soon as the listener hits “Play,” the HD 600 stands as the reference headphone for evaluation, mixing, mastering, and even other audio components. This invisibility stems from an innovative and systematic approach, making transparency the driving principle of sound reproduction. Leveraging Sennheiser’s progressive production techniques and computer-optimized transducer design, the fusion of the art of sound and science is perfect.
Open Your Mind
At the core of the HD 600’s transducer system is an acoustically transparent open-back earcup, allowing each sound wave to propagate freely. This Sennheiser innovation, designed to deliver the most natural personal listening experience, is built around an exclusive 42 mm speaker. Equipped with specialized acoustical silk that precisely controls air circulation, this speaker eliminates turbulence and distortion. Paired with ultra-lightweight aluminum acoustical coils, the 38 mm membrane provides exceptionally short response times, ensuring clinical details without sounding harsh or exaggerated across the entire sound spectrum. The 300-ohm impedance offers a unified framework, allowing the discovery of nuanced details. Each transducer is meticulously measured to ensure consistent performance across the frequency spectrum, reducing disparities between the left and right channels for a mastering-quality sound reproduction independent of the room’s acoustic characteristics.
A relentless effort has been made to create a headphone that combines luxurious comfort with the durability demanded by studio professionals. The velour padding of the HD 600 provides a soft feel for extended listening sessions at your workstation or hi-fi setup. Even the earcup grille has been specifically designed for this transducer system, ensuring an impeccable personal audio experience. Assembled in Ireland with meticulous attention to detail, the HD 600 delivers a consistent experience globally, regardless of when or where it’s acquired. The modularity of most parts makes it a maintenance-friendly essential for reference listening.
It’s All About the Connection
The HD 600 comes with a detachable cable, impedance-matched and with ultra-low capacitance. The 6.35mm stereo jack provides a connection to audiophile-standard devices such as audio interfaces, headphone amplifiers, AV receivers, digital audio players, analog devices, and more. With a length of 3 meters, the cable allows unrestricted listening, even with equipment placed far on your shelves, studio, or desk. The high-quality included adapter reduces the 6.35mm jack to a 3.5mm mini-jack, enabling connection to other audio devices.
