Reference quality headphones usually go for $500 or more. But Sennheiser was able to keep the price down with the HD 560S thanks to its all-new, specially designed transducers. They have new polymer-blend diaphragm membranes and are angled to deliver accurate sound (110-dB sensitivity and 0.05 percent total harmonic distortion) with a really frequency response (6 Hz — 38 kHz). And thanks to open-back design, they're able to deliver an exceptionally expansive soundstage.

Additionally, the Sennheiser HD 560S are actually pretty versatile headphones. They have an impedance of 120 ohms and can work with most sources, be it a turntable, integrated amplifier or your laptop. The headphones come with a detachable 3-meter cable, 6.3mm jack and a 3.5mm adapter.
