In the traditional 12 days of Christmas lyrics, the eleventh day would be eleven pipers piping. On the eleventh day of Best Buy Blog’s 12 days of Christmas, we have Sennheiser headphones piping what could be the finest headphone sound quality you’ve ever heard. Let’s take a look at Sennheiser headphones, one of our most-reviewed headphone brands.
What is the Sennheiser brand known for?
Sennheiser has been around since the mid-1940s. They are a German brand known for high-end audio products, and they’ve put years of research into audio mixing and playback. One of the most notable accomplishments for Sennheiser is the AMBEO technology program and the creation of 9.1 music from standard audio recordings. The tech can upmix music and send pure 3D sound straight to your ear cups or earphones.
You can find out more about the features and technology behind the latest headphones in the headphone buying guide.
Sennheiser headphones in all types and styles
There are a variety of Sennheiser headphones to choose from. While the brand is a favourite for audiophiles who want headphones that produce authentic sound, they are available in different price points and styles so everyone can enjoy them. Every pair will bring you that authentic Sennheiser sound. Here’s a look at a few pairs that were reviewed on the blog this year.
Sennheiser HD560S Over Ear Headphones
The Sennheiser HD560S is an over-the-ear headphone that completely covers your ears with velour ear cushions. The design is meant to create a sound cocoon while also being comfortable to wear for hours. They offer a 6Hz – 38Hz frequency range and use angled transducer technology to create the best possible listening environment. While they are wireless and use Bluetooth to connect to your phone, they also include a 3m cable with a 6.3mm jack so you can plug it into any device.
Jason Grober reviewed the Sennheiser HD560S on the blog and thought they were a great choice for anyone who’s searching for the ultimate sound quality. He even compared them to some of the higher-end Sennheiser headphones and had this to say.
‘In a test that’s no doubt unfair, I compared them to Sennheiser models 10x the cost of these, just to listen for the relative timbre between sister models. While of course the clarity of the higher-end model was immediately evident, I was pleased that the general sound signature had been maintained. The “house sound” of Sennheiser is to avoid being flashy and simply extract the most of what the source has to offer, and I was pleased throughout with the musicality of the HD 560S.‘
Sennheiser Sport True In Ear Sound Isolating Truly Wireless Headphones
Sennheiser is well known for its over ear and on ear headphones, so it was interesting to see the Sennheiser Sport In Ear headphones when they hit the market. They are earphones with sound-isolating technology, and they have adaptable acoustics so you can choose how intense your noise cancellation will be. They offer 27 hours of battery life with 9 hours of playtime on a single charge and are IP54 dust, splash, and sweat resistant so you can wear them while working out or outside in the rain. You can use them to take and make calls too, and they have adjustable sidetone so you can hear your own voice while talking.
They are designed to stand up to workouts and daily life, but like all Sennheiser headphones, the Sennheiser Sport is all about audio quality. Jason reviewed the Sennheiser Sport as well and had this to say about the sound output.
‘By employing trickle-down technology from some of Sennheiser’s own sister models, we’re treated to a well-sounding, robust pair of earbuds that are perfect for use either while engaged in the sporting activities that give the model its name, or simply laying about knowing that you’re protected from all but the most cataclysmic of environmental disruption.‘
Give the gift of Sennheiser headphones
Now that you’ve read about Sennheiser headphones, you probably know a few people you’d love to gift a pair to. If you have someone who loves music, either pair of these headphones are a great gift option. You can find a wide range of Sennheiser headphones at Best Buy.
