HD595's ?

Post by Dave the bass » Tue Nov 13, 2007 4:11 pm

Anyone here with experience of Sennheiser HD595 headphones or other good quality headphones in the £100-140 price band? I've been asked if I'd like a pair of good quality headphones for Christmas, "yes please" I said 'cos I'm bright like that.

The reviews of them seem very good but anyone here used them?

Also, how much sound emits from 'open' headphones? I'm using the freeebies (BD 231) that came with the HFW at the moment and want to upgrade.

Dave ma man, if you ring one of the shops on tottenham court road, you'll be able to pick up the HD650's for around the £140 mark.

Respeck.

Really? I work not a zillion miles from there. I've just read that Senn are about to release a new top of the range model so the shops will want to clear out 650's.

I never go up that way, any shop recommendations Mo?

Cheers for the tip-off,

Weespeckt backatcha :)

You're right, sennheiser are gonna be releasing a replacement for the HD650's.

Well if you just walk into the shop and don't like the price, just go to the next one until you get the price ya happy wid :)

Most of the time you can barter with any of the shops on that road.

Biggup massive :)

Oooo <excited..jumps up and down> My HD650's came today via the Netterweb but the Christmas Police have locked them away and I'm not allowed to play with them until 25th December (2007) :(

How many sleeps is that?
