    Sennheiser’s PC 373D Dolby 7.1 gaming headphones sound best with it disabled

    Sennheiser is great at doing a lot of things, namely in the audio space. Headphones, microphones and the like. When Sennheiser combines the two and creates a gaming headset, you’d expect it to be pretty good, if not great. The 373D is an attempt at integrating 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound into a pair of headphones. The problem with that is, it’s not exactly as interesting as it sounds. Read More

The bad news is that the extremely limited edition Sennheiser/Massdrop team up looks to have sold out already.

  • No, really, the headphone jack is more useful than you think!

    No, really, the headphone jack is more useful than you think!

    Apple today announced that the newest generation iPhone will do away with the headphone jack. Obviously sad if you just bought an expensive new pair of headphones, but the interface is used for a lot more than just pumping phat beats down your ear tunnels. From filmmakers to concerned parents, there’s a rich ecosystem of “appcessories” that use the headphone port for… Read More

    Sennheiser debuts a bunch of new headphones at IFA

    Sennheiser’s always got a fair amount of stuff to show off at IFA. After all, the show is kind of, sort of in the audio company’s backyard (well, only a three hour drive away). This year it’s doubling down on consumer headphones with for new updates. The HD 4 is a new line of big around-ear headphones in three different configurations with passive noise cancelling.

  • The 13 Best-Sounding Headphones For Everyone On Your Nice List

    Buying someone else headphones is often easier said than done. Audiophiles are a fickle bunch and even kids know exactly what type of brand/sound they want these days. These headphones I’m recommending run the gamut in affordability ($25 to $1,945) but they all offer something distinctly unique and refreshing. As a general rule, buying headphones online is probably not the best move… Read More

  • Sennheiser + Adidas = HD 25 Originals

  • The Sennheiser EZX60 is just another Bluetooth headset

    There doesn’t seem to be anything particularly wrong with the EZX60 headset. The $79 wireless headset has a digital noise and echo cancellation processor and a battery that will last 12.5 days on standby or 7.5 hours of talk time. All that seems about right these days. The EZX60 is available now if you’re in the market. Read More

  • BMW plus Sennheiser equals some sweet-looking headphones

    I always wonder what is really meant when people say that BMW, or Ferrari, or whoever, colluded with this or that consumer tech company to create a product. Obviously they didn’t get the lead designer for the 5 series to work on these from the ground up, but at the same time they didn’t hire the guy who created the seat-recline mechanism. I’m guessing they get a few sketches… Read More

    Hey everybody! Let’s play the “What would you do if you had a million dollars?” game! Unfortunately, due to recent changes in corporation policy and budget cuts, you’ll only have 10,000 USD to play with. And it will have to go towards something music / audio related. Wait, that’s still totally awesome. But don’t tell me what you would do with the cash. Go… Read More

  • New Sennheiser HD series look like solid headphones to me

    Sennheiser is a reliable brand for mid-range headphones, which is a good thing because there’s really nothing else to go on here. These new headphones, the HD-428, HD-438, and HD-448 all look fine to me, but there’s only so much you can say without actually hearing them. The press release says the 448 offers a “lifelike sound experience,” the 438 a “natural… Read More

  • Sennheiser releases first untethered Kleer wireless earbuds

    [photopress:MX_W1_Set__Large_.jpg,full,center] I pray that Kleer actually takes off but after seeing ideas like this try and fail to gain traction — Zigbee, anyone? — I’m a little dubious. Anyway, Sennheiser just launched the first Kleer compatible headphones which allow you to listen to any Kleer-enabled MP3 player and even share your music with others. The MX W1 headphones… Read More

  • Sound Opinion: Headphone Showdown

    Given the widespread use of iPods and other portable music players it would seem that headphones are mostly used so as not to disturb others. And while that is one purpose for these direct to your ear mini speakers, headphones can just as easily be used to block the ambient noise around you, and more importantly to provide rich full quality audio when large speakers are unavailable. Of… Read More

  • Sennheiser PXC 450 Noise-Canceling Headphones

    I have a bit of a love affair with Sennheiser. Back in my gaming days I used a pair of HD-570s. They completely changed my game.
