Features

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.

 

Features

- Natural and accurate reference sound
- All-new transducer with high-strength magnet effortlessly reproduces deep, defined bass and brilliant treble
- New polymer-blend transducer membrane offers highly-linear excursion for superb control
- Angled transducers recreate the optimal listening position every time, without the need for acoustic room treatment
- Open earcups facilitate the natural expansion of sound waves
- Superb detail retrieval with fast, clear bass response

 

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.

 

Signature sound

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.

General notes:

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.

Outstanding headphones

It doesn't get much better than this, and certainly not at this price. These are top quality audiophile headphones for much less than you would normally have to pay for this quality of sound. Obviously they're open-backed (so they let noise in and out) and wired (with a very good long, light cable), so they're not for you if you want noise cancelling or wireless headphones, and it's possible you might prefer something less accurate (e.g. with boosted bass) if you're only wanting them for a narrow range of music genres...but for anyone wanting accurate, gorgeous sounding headphones for all kinds of music including orchestral etc., they're the...view more

Great quality but comfort is meh!

I just moved from a normal basic gaming headset and another work wireless one.

The build quality is above average, strong but plasticky feeling. The velour cushioned are for sure upgrade from the gaming headset material, but doesn't feel as high quality as the leather on the work headset.

Comfort is really a downside for me. The clamping force is quite high that I got a significant pain and headache after the first 1 hour. This improved with the continuous usage. But you can imagine that I normally spend around 10 hour sessions and it is not comfort at all. ( mixed between work and gaming ). My gaming over the ears headset is so comfort...view more

Very comfy, crisp natural sound

I’ve had these for a month now. Very comfortable and sound quality is great. I used to have some high end noice cancelling headphones. But these pair blow them out of the water.
You don’t need an amp for these bad boys. Just plug it in and enjoy. I’ve never had open back headphones before so I can’t compare these to any other open back model. But I can tell that hd560s are natural and crisp sounding headphones.

Amazing performance-price ratio

Father has the HD 600 pair and this pair competes with those at ~half the price point. Great for people who are into 'cold' / 'analytical' sound profiles.

Exceptional

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.
