Sennheiser HD 660S Over-Ear Open Dynamic Headphones – : This new model are loads better.

I bought the hd 660 15 years ago for around the same money. This new model are loads better.

I loved my akg k712 pros – we got a dog – 712s are no more. I always say i prefer to listen out loud – my main listen is with genelec 8040s – the akgs were necessary for middle-of-the-night sessions. So my wife got me the 660s ‘phones. I hade sennheiser through my teens. They are transparent, dynamic, musical – actually lovelymy only initial criticism – that they are tight – has gone as they have relaxed physically. They are an easy recommend for anyone – they do leak – they are open backed – if this compromise is ok then get them.

Firstly, the packaging is astonishing. There’s a ton of foam, so you know that your headphones arrived undamaged even if the amazon box looks like it just went through a nuclear war. There isn’t a ton of accessories provided, but that’s fine. You get another cable terminating in a sony 4. 4 mm pentaconn connector and an adapter from 6. When you first put on the headphones, they exert quite a lot of pressure on your head, but after a bit of use that goes away. The sound is simply put amazing. Everything is crystal clear, no distortions whatsoever.

00 in june 2018 from a sennheiser dealer, list price from sennheiser £429. 00the headphones are of the usual high standard sennheiser build, finished in satin black, full marks to the sennheiser manufacture stable. They should last a life time if well treated. I would have preferred a gunmetal type colour akin to the hd600 i also think the plastics used on the hd600 are a little thicker than the plastics used on the hd660s. The hd600 is a headphone i had previously owned but found them far to neutral with the types of music i listened to at the time, i find the hd660s to be a little on the bright side of neutral with bags of midrange which is presented to the rear of the stereo image, they have a decent bass response, stereo imaging is something i can confidently say is ‘second to none’ at this price point, they also drag every nuance from a recording. They do show up poor recordings, i found listening to compressed recordings dull and lifeless, if your cd collection is full of the ‘now that’s what i call music’ cds then i would look elsewhere for a more open sounding pair of headphones. I found them a bit on the tight side to wear at first, that goes in time, do not bend them to ease the tight fit as they will become lose as the ear pads ‘bed’ in. Two cables are included in the very well made presentation box, one 3mtr cable fitted with a standard 1/4 inch male stereo headphone plug also a balanced cable with a pentacon male stereo headphone plug, again 3mtr long. Included in the box is a 1/4 inch female stereo socket converted to a 3.

Sennheiser does it again , this headphones received a mixed reviews , some people like it some not so much. I can understand why the negative feedback you could order hd6xx from massdrop for $199 and that is unbelievable value. This headphones are supposed to be the successor to the legendary hd 6xx series. I have myself hd 580 , hd600 and had hd650 so i am familiar with the sound they provide. I can tell that this hd660s are truly the best headphones from the family. They sound fantastic , the response is much faster than the predecessors , they have more punchy bass , they maintain the amazing mids we all loved hd6xx for and have improved the highs and detail retrieval , sound stage is a bit bigger than any of the hd6xx. It is definitely a improved sound it maintains all the straights from hd6xx and improves upon them. Couldn’t be happier with the purchase.

I bought these to replace my hd600 i am very pleased with the sound they are more well rounded than the hd600 it definitely feels like an upgrade. The clamping force on these headphones is a lot tighter than the 600 but it’s liveable.

Absolutely fantastic headphones. Been a fan of sennheiser for a long time, i’m saving to go to the next level of sennheiser.

These sennheiser hd660s ‘phones are a more detailed and dynamic transducer when compared to its predecessors. I own the sennheiser hd600 and hd650 and i can say that the new hd660s outperforms both, in my opinion. Take the width of the soundstage; the stereo image the 660s produces is not only wider, with more depth and space around the instruments, the instruments sound larger in scale and have more finely etched detail. In comparison, the hd600 sounds matter-of-fact and small scale, and the hd650 sounds claustrophobic – the sennheiser ‘veil’ – and, i hate to say it, dull.Don’t misunderstand; in isolation the hd600 and hd650 are superb headphones and i’ll not be parting with them, but the hd660s has improved detail resolution and provides the most immediately enjoyable listening experience. I have many pairs of headphones, including the beyer dt1990 – see my review – and for classical music the sennheiser hd660s is my new reference. The king is dead – long live the kingthe sennheiser hd660s hasn’t had it easy; on its release it was reviewed and dismissed by many as being unworthy of following in the footsteps of its illustrious predecessors. Some months ago, i chose the beyer dt1990 over the sennheiser hd660s and i’m happy with the beyers.

Sennheiser did an amazing job getting this headphone so close to the 650 but it is improved in many ways with better, detail, speed, clarity and separation. 660 sounds much more effortless than the 650 while keeping a rich warm smooth sound with exceptional mids. I intended to keep the 650 as well but it was too hard to go back to after spending 2 weeks with the 660. In my opinion they dont deserve the negative feedback they received at launch, you should give them a chance with your own ears. It took a while to get a successor to the legend but i think its worth every penny.
