The HD 560S indulges the audiophile evaluating their music’s entire journey through the audio path. This open-back headphone is tuned to reveal the truth in your music without sacrificing the gratifying bass response needed to reproduce complex modern music—all at a breakthrough value. Its transducers are angled to recreate the optimal triangular listening position for a wide, articulate soundstage. The lightweight design of the HD 560S gives the listener a “barely there” experience for extended listening sessions. The low-impedance drivers offer the flexibility to reproduce hi-fi sound on virtually any of your audio devices such as portable digital audio players, laptops, A/V receivers, audio interfaces and more. A detachable 3 meter cable provides the perfect amount of freedom to access your gear, and features a 6.3mm plug with a flexible 3.5mm adapter. This combination of accuracy, wide sound field, smooth bass performance, and long-term listening comfort make the HD 560S suitable for hi-fi aficionados and music tasks alike.


Natural and accurate reference sound

With linear acoustics tailored to extended listening sessions and smooth, gratifying bass performance, the HD 560S was crafted for the analytical audio enthusiast.

Key Features

  • Natural and accurate reference sound
  • All-new transducer with high-strength magnet effortlessly reproduces deep, defined bass and brilliant treble
  • New polymer-blend transducer membrane offers highly-linear excursion for superb control
  • Angled transducers recreate the optimal listening position every time, without the need for acoustic room treatment
  • Open earcups facilitate the natural expansion of sound waves
  • Superb detail retrieval with fast, clear bass response

Open earcups for open minds

The HD 560S features an open-back design that provides natural propagation of sound waves.

The E.A.R. (Ergonomic Acoustic Refinement) angled driver alignment recreates the optimal triangular listening position you regularly find in hi-fi loudspeaker setups. This combination creates a wide, articulate soundstage without the need for room treatment, letting you hear the neutral version of your music unaffected by the artifacts of a confined space.

Signature sound

The HD 560S transducers are specifically tuned for accuracy, offering dependable A/B comparisons of components, remasters, and media formats.

The entire frequency range is honest, complemented by smooth, deep bass extension that reveals what nearfield loudspeakers often struggle to reproduce—especially between 20 and 50 Hz. The 120 ohm transducer is all-new, featuring a specialized polymer blend in its membrane for linear excursion and improved brilliance above 10 kHz. The drive magnet offers highly efficient power while its sophisticated damping system manages ventilation—this combination yields deeper bass while mitigating the distortion that otherwise impacts clarity—a difference only the most discerning listeners can appreciate. Whether you are exploring the catalog of an undiscovered artist or revisiting a vintage audiophile preamp the HD 560S offers a fatigue-free listen that you can depend on.

Comfort is king

Although the HD 560S sound is rooted in the reference-level DNA of the beloved HD 660S, its comfort mechanics are based on the chassis of our ultralight HD 599.

A headphone this neutral deserves a distraction-free fit and a “barely there” feel on the listener’s head. Even the velour earpads have been carefully considered to keep all contact points soft to the touch. The open, around-the-ear design offers benefits beyond natural sound—the ventilated cup remains cool without ever needing to touch the wearer’s ears.

It’s all about connection

Because audiophiles frequent a variety of sources, we developed the HD 560S to provide an exceptional experience regardless of the playback system.

Great sounds

It doesn't come as a surprise seeing how good these sounds, the imaging and replication of tone is almost perfect on all frequency range for the price. Highly recommend getting yourself a pair!

I’ve been listening to music like a pilgrim

I should have purchased a pair of 560 a long time ago. I can’t believe how it’s changed my listening experience.

Sehr guter Klang.

Ich habe von Sennheiser nichts anderes erwartet. Praktisch ist auch der 6,3 Klinkenadapter mit Schraubgewinde. Die Ohrmuscheln liegen wunderbar am Kopf an ohne zu drücken. Das einzige was ich mir gewünscht hätte, weil ich es schon von anderen Hochwertigen Kopfhörern kenne, wäre ein Aufbewahrungsbeutel zum verstauen für unterwegs oder wenn man die Kopfhörer eine Zeit nicht benutzt. Für Kopfhörer in diesem Preissegment dürfte das kein Problem sein und würde für mich die ganze Sache gut abrunden.

HD 560S - Super Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis

Der HD 560S ist ein sehr guter Over-Ear Kopfhörer, der vor allem durch seinen Tragekomfort und den Basseigenschaften besticht.
Für eine bessere Bewertung hätte das angepriesene 3m lange Anschlusskabel auch 3 m sein müssen. Es war gerade mal 1,9 m lang.
Auf meine Reklamation hin hat der Kundenservice aber prima reagiert und mir postwendend eine 3 m Anschlussschnur kostenlos geschickt.
Schön wäre es ferner für mich gewesen, wenn ich im Vorfeld gewusst hätte das der Warenursprung die Volksrepublik China ist.

good audio and comfortable

absolutely amazing, would give them 5 starts but i had to use an equalizer to make them sound good. out of the box they were very bass heavy to the point where they weren't really usable.
