Headphones are the oft overlooked accessory to the MP3 player and iPod. Consumers are willing to shell out a small fortune to buy a portable audio player and then scrimp by spending little more than a few pounds on an inexpensive, and usually inept, pair of headphones. However, if you want to improve the sound quality then the best way to go is to buy a reasonable set.
Fair enough, we don’t all want to walk around with a full set of ear warmers on, but if you listen to music at home or have no shame then the Sennheiser HD650 headphones are among the very best that money can buy. Although, make no mistake, you are going to have spend money to buy these – even with some careful shopping around you are going to have to pay £200 to £250 or more for a set (yes, one set).
Sennheiser are renowned for creating high quality headphones and the HD650 headphones give a completely balanced and crisp playback of every sound. Kevlar reinforced OFC copper cable make them completely insensitive to handling noise. Every aspect of them has been designed to offer unparalleled sound quality. Once you listen to your favourite tracks through a set of these, those £5 ear buds will begin to seem way too expensive.
