Sennheiser has launched yet another pair of headphones in its ever-popular HD series. The new Sennheiser HD 560S headphones are built to deliver as accurate of a listening experience as possible — so much so, that Sennheiser says that they’re built for “analytical listening sessions.”
Of course, that could make the headphones a great choice for audiophiles too. Sennheiser says that the HD 560S’ transducers are tuned for accuracy, dependable A/B comparisons, and so on. With their open-back design, the headphones also should offer a super-wide soundstage.
“We are excited to introduce the entry-level audiophile HD 560S headphones. In terms of bass response and value for money, this product represents a paradigm shift for open, dynamic headphones,” said Jermo Köhnke, Product Manager at Sennheiser, in a statement. “With linear acoustics tailored to critical listening sessions, we have designed the HD 560S for audiophiles who evaluate a recording’s entire journey through the audio path.”
When it comes to basic specs, the headphones boast a frequency range of 6Hz to 6kHz, with a 110dB sensitivity, and a <0.5% total harmonic distortion at 90dB. They also offer a 120Ω impedence, and come with a 3 meter cable and 3.5mm adapter.
The best thing about the headphones? Arguably, the price. The Sennheiser HD 560S headphones come in at only $199.95, which will likely make them an excellent choice for audiophiles who don’t want to spend too much for an accurate listening experience. You can get the headphones for yourself starting on September 29, straight from the Sennheiser website.
