COMBO DEALS: Buy Together and SAVE!
HD 560S - With linear acoustics tailored to extended listening sessions and smooth, gratifying bass performance, the HD 560S was crafted for the analytical audio enthusiast.

Reveal the truth in your music
Today's audiophiles monitor their music with measured purpose on a wide range of devices from headphone amplifiers, audio interfaces, computers, and more. The HD 560S delivers the linear performance required by analytical audio enthusiasts at a breakthrough value, allowing the listener to have an honest look inside their music whether for pleasure or productivity.
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 would find in hi-fi loudspeaker setups and high-end recording studios. 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.
The HD 560S transducers are specifically tuned for accuracy, offering dependable A/B comparisons of components, mixes, and media formats. The entire frequency range is honest, complemented by smooth, deep bass extension that reveals what nearfield loudspeakers often struggle to reproduce-especially between 20 and 50 Hz. The 120 ohm transducer is all-new, featuring a specialized polymer blend in its membrane for linear excursion and improved brilliance above 10 Hz. The drive magnet offers highly efficient power while its sophisticated damping system manages ventilation-this combination yields deeper bass while mitigating the distortion that otherwise impacts clarity-a difference only the most discerning listeners can appreciate. Whether grading a new hi-resolution master or revisiting a vintage audiophile preamp the HD 560S offers a fatigue-free listen that you can depend on.
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 3 meter cable (9.8 feet) provides the perfect amount of freedom to access your gear, no matter how it may be oriented within your setup. The 6.3mm / 1/4-inch plug lets you connect to headphone amplifiers, audio interfaces, and most hi-fi sources while a flexible 3.5mm / 1/8-inch adapter ensures you can extract the most out of your reference material on portable digital audio players and countless other audio devices.

Professional equipment on a budget
These are professional level headphones for producers. Flat frequency response, massive sound stage, perfect for mixing/mastering and for an absurdly low price. Personally, I love open-backs, they're a lot nicer to wear for extended periods.
120 ohms impedance means you'll need an amplifier or a sound card capable of supporting higher impedance or you won't get much out of them. Don't expect much if you're plugging them into your phone.
*bonus: they're actually really great for competitive gaming, as the sound is so crisp it's a lot easier to hear people sneaking up on you. This is assuming you have an amp/sound card that supports 120 o...view more
Suprisingly good for the price
For an entry-level priced "open back" headphone, these are surprisingly good, and I'm very happy with the purchase.
Pros: open back design, great sound, comfortable to wear for long periods, quality cable, reasonably priced.
Cons: the velour earpads are terrible at collecting dust and pet fur, and I can't find anyone that will sell me replacement pads - so at this stage at least, when they're gone, they're gone. Construction feels a bit "plastic-y" but that's to be expected at this price point.
They come with a 1/4" (6.5mm) plug as standard, with an adapter down to 1/8" (3.5mm) - this is a hint at their target marke...view more
Great value for money
Great headphones that met my needs.
I purchased them primarily to listen to music at home and wanted the open back for the full sound. For this, they are perfect and for the cost, they are excellent value.
They come with a jack adapter so you can use them with your tablet or phone but they do not fold and are pretty bulky so aren’t really suitable for wearing out and about or for travelling.
I know that just some words don't make for a review but it is the nature of this sort of impression sharing that we are brief. I am no sound professional, but I've had an interest in Hi-Fi for a long, very long time and I don't think I've ever come across a pair of headphones so perfectly tuned. And for the price, it is just exceptional value.
Best headphones for the price.
As a producer these are perfect for the price, nice flat response and surprisingly clear sub bass frequencies after they've been broken. Very comfy and no ear fatigue over long periods of use.
