Why Sennheiser is one of the best over ear headphones
Looking for headphones? Do you like to design or sound quality? Like any audiophile, I love high quality headphones and from personal experience, the best brand I’ve had the pleasure of using are the Sennheiser range of over-ear headphones. They rub shoulders with and even outclass other leading brands that cost twice as much as they do and as a matter of fact, many of the premium headphone brands such as the “exclusive” Beats do not sound better than this.
Sennheiser headphones always get excellent results in all quality tests performed. Sennheiser offers the best headphones at very affordable prices. The Sennheiser headphones are a world apart and are definitely one of the best on offer in today’s market.
Everything about them speaks class. From the sleek, professional packaging to the intuitive headset controls to its Invisible high-performance microphone, Sennheiser headphones are the industry’s best in terms of quality, pricing, performance and wearing comfort.
The first indicator to the quality of this range of headphones is the fact that Sennheiser is a German brand. The import of this statement is that the Germans are well-known for producing high quality products and Sennheiser headphones are no exception.
With a pad on top of the headband of the same material and enclosed padded helmets for comfort, and a clamp for winding the long cable as you wish, the Sennheiser headphones are one of the most comfortable, most isolating headphones you will ever find. They are designed to effectively eliminate ear fatigue when in use. Also, there are no distortions in the sound quality with increase in volume. The bass response of Sennheiser headphones is impressive and the mid-range and treble are very clear with low distortion.
They are quite comfortable in the way they also surround the ear. The headphones have synthetic leather pads which are pleasant to touch and, at the same time, are removable and replaceable.
The plastic that binds the two handsets together also has artificial leather padding, so it is not too hard against the head. They do not apply pressure on the head but rather, they fit the contours of the head. The headphones are adjustable in a fairly wide range to suit different head sizes. The headphone cable is 3 meters long, but comes with a belt clip which can wrap the cord with ease. The headphones cables enable you to move around while still stay connected to your audio device and moreover, you can decide to switch to Bluetooth mode for even greater wireless freedom while connected to a Bluetooth-enabled device.
With regard to the sound quality, it is simply heavenly. They sound great and covering a very wide range of frequencies which makes them sound loud and clear. The NoiseGard feature is an advanced noise cancellation feature which makes it possible for users to enjoy music without distortions from the ambient background noise. This particularly comes in handy when you are in a noisy environment as the headphones can lower outside noise by as much as 90%.
One other feature that sets these headphones above the rest is the TalkThrough utility which is essentially an invisible microphone which is activated by a single touch. It serves the purpose of allowing users to hold conversations without actually having to remove the headphones.
Several headphones within the Sennheiser range have been optimized for portable audio devices like the iPod, iPhone, MP3 player etc. So, regardless of your choice of electronic device, you are guaranteed a superior performance with no sound leakage whatsoever.
If you ever find yourself walking down a busy/noisy street and your Sennheiser headphones do not isolate the sound completely, the surrounding noises from the cars, buses, horns, drills, ambulances, etc. can be easily countered by raising the volume.
The quality of the finishing materials is excellent and they come with a handy leather carrying case for easy transportation. In terms of their weights, they are fairly lightweight which is crucial when one is traveling or walking long distances with them as they don’t feel heavy on the head.
In conclusion, if you are looking for something that is comfortable and has very deep bass or if you just need very good headphones for your computer, for watching movies, music and games, do not hesitate to grab the Sennheiser headphones.
I would strongly recommend that you purchase them because you will not find anything like it on the market. The quality built into these epic headphones, by far, exceeds their prices.
