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.sennheiser hd 560s headphones

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.

The detachable 1,8 meter cable provides the perfect amount of freedom to access your gear, no matter how it may be oriented within your setup. The 3,5mm plug lets you connect to headphone amplifiers and most hi-fi sources while a 6,3mm screw-on adapter ensures you can extract the most out of your reference material on portable digital audio players and countless other audio devices.

"We have developed an all-new 120 ohm transducer, featuring a specialized polymer blend in its diaphragm for linear excursion and improved brilliance above 10 kHz. This makes the HD 560S accurate across the entire frequency spectrum, to reveal every detail in your music."

Kurt Mick, Team Leader Acoustics and Transducer

"We've listened carefully to our customers' demands for neutral reference headphones and have delivered on all fronts: accurate bass response, clarity above 10kHz, and a natural soundstage. Combined with an accessible price, the HD 560S represents a paradigm shift for open, dynamic headphones and invites you to discover the audiophile world."
