General Intro

While maybe not the most popular brand name as far as the general public is concerned what it comes to headphones, serious audiophiles and professional musicians, producers, and other experts that have to have pitch perfect sound have all fallen in love with Sennheiser headphones and speakers – and for good reason.

Designed specifically to produce the most accurate sound possible, these headphones from Sennheiser (the HD 650 headphones) are far and away some of the very best on the market. At the same time, they are some of the most expensive.

This review will break down whether or not they are worth that pre-price tag!

Sound Quality

As far as sound quality is concerned, it really doesn’t get any better than the Sennheiser HD 650 headphones.

Specifically manufactured to produce acoustically pitch perfect sound, these headphones having improved frequency response of between 10 – 39,500 Hz (-10 dB) while pumping that beautiful sound through scientifically engineered acoustic silk.

You’ve never heard music like this before!

On top of that, the high power neodymium magnets used throughout these headphones guarantee crystal-clear clarity across the board. These headphones might not be noise canceling, but they are going to produce incredibly accurate sound while at the same time dampening outside interference.

It really doesn’t get any better than this!

Sennheiser HD 650 Headphones


Designed as studio style headphones, these over the ear headphones are lightweight and comfortable for long term use, though they are a bit on the bulky side of things.

These headphones are going to fit very snug up against your head, creating and acoustic seal that might be at least a little bit uncomfortable at first. Given time, though (we’re talking about 15 minutes or so) you won’t notice any pinch – but will instead find these to be some of the most comfortable headphones you’ve ever worn.


Attractive and very modern in their design aesthetic, there aren’t too terribly many more attractive headphone options on the market today. They aren’t quite as flashy as Beats, but they show off the technology used inside of these headphones in a smart and very modern look.

At the end of the day, if you want to be able to hear absolutely every single note (and we mean EVERY SINGLE NOTE) in your favorite pieces of music, you really can’t go wrong with the Sennheiser HD 650 headphones.

Of course, looking for a set of headphones to kind of bang around with at the gym or while out running these are probably a little bit on the overkill side of things. You can pick up a set of much cheaper headphones that will get the job done in those situations.

Serious audiophiles though aren’t going to want to listen to music on anything but these headphones.
