Sennheiser HD 600 Headphones
Open-back headphone designs are often higher-performance but have poor noise isolation and leak sound. Closed-back designs provide better noise isolation and leak less sound.
Over-ear headphones sit over your ear and surround your ear with a ring of padding. On-ear headphones are padded but rest on top of your ear. In-ear monitors are worn inside your ear canal.
Speakers and headphones use a device called a 'driver' to create sound. Different types of drivers have different strengths and weaknesses, but can all produce great sound. Common varieties include dynamic, planar magnetic, and electrostatic.
Some headphones require the power of an amplifier to reach comfortable listening volumes.
Connectivity refers to the method in which the headphones connect to the audio source. Headphones can be either wired or wireless.

Sennheiser HD 600 Dynamic Over-Ear Open-Back Headphones
The HD 600 is the audio purist’s choice for reference playback. An instrument of Sennheiser’s passion for perfect sound, it is globally recognized as the standard for analytical high-fidelity listening - even 20-plus years after its release.
Audiophile-quality professional stereo headphones, the Sennheiser HD 600 utilizes two-layer diaphragm technology to radically reduce surface born resonance. A powerful neodymium ferrous magnet is optimized to control the motion of the diaphragm, which provides deeper bass without the loss of definition.
Complementing the diaphragm and driver magnets are triple wound aluminum voice coils, which are housed in an acoustically transparent ear cup, maximizing the benefits of the open design. The HD 600 is an ideal choice for the professional recording engineer, providing an uncolored and spatially accurate rendition of program material, especially classical music.
