These are great headphones. I bought these headphones back in 2009 and I am still using them today. I did a lot of research at the time and only the Sennheiser HD-595 had the overall quality of an audiophile entry headphone. I defiantly notice little details I would miss in my sony headphones and there is not a large amount of bass. I find lots of bass annoying so I picked these headphones. The cord is almost 8 feet long and is more than enough for a cubicle. I enjoy hearing more detail in music I normally wouldn't with lesser quality headphones/speakers.
At the time I thought $200 for headphones was pretty expensive but I have been using them almost daily at work for the past 7 years and I defiantly believe my purchase was justified. They are comfortable, provide high quality sound and so far have lasted a very long time. I believe if you buy these headphones you will be happy with them for a long time.
The HD 595 is the successor model to the long established Sennheiser HD 580 headphone. First, the new HD 595 had to reach and exceed the performance of the HD 580 in sound quality, materials used and craftsmanship in order to be a success. It appears that the HD 595 has done this.
This was no easy task as the HD 580 had been in Sennheiser's product line-up for many years and produced great sound. I have had my HD 580 for at least several years and have been really pleased with the sound quality, construction, wearing comfort and durability.
When I received the HD 595, I noticed that Sennheiser had made big changes to the appearance and the construction materials. Also the ear cups/velour padding are smaller than the HD 580. I would have liked the HD 595 more if the ear cups/velour padding were the same or similar to that of the HD 580.
On the positive features, the HD 595 also comes with a well padded, stitched leather style head set, quality velour ear cup padding and has a longer cord.
Once I started to listen to music with the new HD 595 the real difference was heard. The HD 595 has greater dynamic range, acoustical clarity and has a clean, focused, bright sound.
I can hear the guitars, horns and percussion better and the bass, although very present is also balanced. However, the bass is not over the top unless you dial in the bass levels well over the treble. Also, I noticed the stereo effects are clearer and more evident with the HD 595.
It took a while to get adjusted to the HD 595 as I have been listening to the HD 580 for many years and still use the HD 580 headphone.
After listening to a few different types of music, for example; the Beatles, Stones, The Who, vocals from Barbara Streisand and horns from Chicago, I can hear the differences between the HD 595 and the HD 580.
I also called the Customer Service for Sennheiser and spoke with a tech representative to discuss the HD 595. The tech I spoke with took the time and effort to explain the new features and sound quality for the HD 595. As always, Sennheiser has excellent Customer Service and tech support.
All in all, the HD 595 produces great to outstanding sound for the price point. The HD 595 is a very good to excellent headphone. The next step up for Sennheiser, the HD 600, is a bit too expensive for me.
The HD 595 headphone was shipped promptly and was well packaged by Amazon. I'm glad I bought the Sennheiser HD 595.
Update: As of May 2014, I have owned the Sennheiser HD 595 headphones for over 4 1/2 years and have used the headphones extensively. The sound quality is outstanding and performed perfectly.
The external construction materials, the headset, frame, ear cup velour padding and cord are excellent.
For the outstanding Sennheiser quality sound, top level construction material and the price point, this has been an excellent purchase for listening to music.
1. They do not overemphasize the bass. It's tight and, if anything, quieter than the rest of the range.
2. The 1/4 inch jack is what my digital piano puts out
3. They don't require a headphone amp (especially with a dp...mine at least has a pretty good built in one)
4. The clarity and evenness over the whole range is very pleasing.
I have also listened to a good bit of music with them, both classical and pop. I really, really like these for classical listening. They are good for pop as well, but I think they shine with the classical. In fact, I have a cd of a recording of myself singing in a college choir performance that is an outstanding test case. The reason is that it was a very powerful and dramatic performance live, but has never sounded good on the CD. When I listened using these headphones and closed my eyes, it was just like being there. Really impressive. The sound through these headphones is far beyond anything I've heard in any other headphones or even, I dare say, through real speakers.
Now, take that with the following information as well: I'm not particularly an audiophile. I'm a musician, but all other headphones I've used were normal off-the-shelf stuff. If you want a comparison of these vs high end expensive headphones, I'm not the person to ask. But I can say these blow away regular consumer headphones you can get at a store. By a long ways.
They are extremely comfortable on my head. I can have them on for hours with no problems whatsoever. Even while wearing glasses.
The build quality seems good. I mean, it's a step up from super cheap headphones, but not the kind of thing that really makes you go WOW. I'm sure with not too much pressure I could break some of the plastic parts. They look really nice, though, for headphones.
Now these are open-air headhones, which means while you are wearing them you can hear everything around you in the room just about as well as you can when not wearing headphones. That can be a plus or a minus. In general for me it's nice to be able to converse with people while wearing headphones...on the other hand if someone is watching a movie in the next room, you will hear it.
A big deal has been made by some reviewers about how people can hear the music you are listening to while you are listening to these. I have to say those people have the volume turned way, way too high. I have played music as loud as is comfortable to my ears and my wife sitting next to me has to really focus to tell whether I'm listening or not. They certainly leak sound, but it's nothing like problematic. If people around you are hearing it, you seriously need to turn down the volume...it's pretty easy to harm your ears using headphones and that is a big sign that you have crossed the line.
Great headphones. I got them at a great price here on amazon (some kind of sale...and I think they are replacing this model or something). These are a perfect intro to super high-end headphones. Wonderful for musicians. Just be aware that these headphones do NOT have a particularly powerful bass. If you are looking for that, look elsewhere, because even regular consumer headphones have more bass--it's just nowhere near as clear and clean.
Plug them in to your digital piano or something and go crazy.
One more thing, if you are wanting to plug this into a 1/8 inch jack, like an mp3 player or something, I'd probably look elsewhere. The 1/4 to 1/8 adapter is big and awkward and doesn't always make a perfect connection. High end stuff has 1/4 inch connection and this is designed for high-end stuff.
