Expertly balanced acoustics, luxurious construction and timeless design.

Smooth response and dimensional soundstage
Open earcups provide each and every soundwave ample room to expand as they would in nature.
The HD 650’s signature sound starts with our in-house acoustics. Audiophiles know that the best components perform at their peak when nothing stands in their way. The 42mm transducer deploys a 38mm diaphragm with aluminum voice coil specifically tuned for extended, critical listening: overall treble and low-frequency presence are effortless while midrange is reproduced with lifelike composure—none sacrificing their organic roots to get there. Modern high-resolution sample rates benefit especially well from the HD 650’s willingness to reveal subtle nuances without resorting to over-hyping the treble range. Each transducer manufactured is measured against rigid specifications and paired with a perfect match for consistent representation of the entire frequency spectrum in both channels. By reducing variances between left and right channels, the headphone reproduces mastering-grade sound independent of room acoustics or loudspeaker positioning.
Made with more in mind
Combines the best of modern transducer manufacturing with the attention to detail required to handle a wide variety of acoustic materials.
Made in Ireland at a state-of-the-art production facility, the HD 650 delivers more: more details discovered, more musicality, and definitely more time for blissful listening. Our production tolerances are extremely tight, ensuring that your HD 650 experience is consistent with those all over the globe, whenever or wherever it was purchased. For example, the resonators feature stainless steel mesh to guarantee uniform performance after manufacturing. Even better, most parts on the HD 650 are modular, making them a dream to keep as your go-to hi-fi playback headphones for as long as you cherish them. From the velour pads to the earcup grille pattern, each component was crafted to guarantee a next-level personal sound experience so you can enjoy your music even more.
It's all about connection
Comes with a detachable, impedance-matched cable, stereo connector with audiophile-standard plug and premium adapter.

I can obviously only comment on my own personal hearing preference. I upgraded to the HD650's after having HD558's for the last 5 years, I was concerned that I may not get what I hoped for, that there may not be that much improvement but fear not. These headphones are just outstanding. Clear, Detailed and for me, more than enough bass. And they're not even broken in yet. I never thought they'd be this good. Worth every penny. Thanks Sennheiser
The feeling when I put them on Is like getting from the street into a acoustic treated hall where you can listen all details of your mix and feel the room . Great headphones that can be wearing for hours without feeling you are having a sauna session
