    Great mid-range and high end without being annoying. I can''t see anybody being disappointed in the HD-560, especially at this price point.

    For reference: about me
    -20yrs + audio enthusiast with both cans/IEMs
    -over 100IEMs / 50 headphone personal inventory, including UM MEST MKII, Thieaudio Monarch, Moondrop Blessing2, Sennheiser HD650, AKG K701, K340, beyerdynamic DT990

    Verdict: Well-worth the value, compared to HD560S rivals HD6XX, K7XX, in terms of neutral tonality. The sub-bass (30hz and below) is even neutrally superior to its big brother HD600, the neutral reference legend.

    vs Sennheiser''s line up
    Technically is a just a tiny shy of HD6 series but as HD560S is only 80 ohms, vs HD6 series 300ohms, here HD560S is a better choice to run on daily occasions. As HD560S mostly made of plastic, again the weight is lighter, it means less burden to the neck and well suited for long term listening sessions.

    VS AKG K701
    The resolution is on K701 side, yet K701 is bit too peaky with 6khz, means very “shouty” for many of the source. HD560S meanwhile is only a tad hot around 5khz which most likely would not impact 95% of listeners concha gain peak. Tonality wise HD560S is fine-tuned. Technicality wise K701.

    VS DT990 PRO
    As DT990 is V shaped tonality with narrow studio monitor sound, these two are on totally different spectrum, HD560S a solid neutral contender with extreme wide sound stage (even compared to HD650), so HD560S comes to more of all-rounder compared to DT990 PRO, which is better off on monitoring rock source.

    I’m running HD560S on wireless, with FiiO M11 Pro on LDAC sound quality priority mode, to FiiO BTR5 receiver, and running thru 2.5mm balanced. This will enable 96khz/24bit with 990kbps ultra hifi DSD class experience thru wireless headphone, and balanced amp has each left and right channels to be independently operated with dual ESS chip and dual opamps, upto 240mwV output of BTR5.

    Long-story short: HD560S can be KING OF WIRELESS HEADPHONE depending on the configurations. Airpod Max/THX PANDA/Hifiman Deva is no match to LDAC/2.5mm balanced HD560S.

    These are the minimum and ideal value for open-backs, for closed back get the AKG K371. Only two headphones you need. Both are not as comfortable as the SHP9500, but the HD 560S are comparable in comfort while having better clamping. Neither need an amp. As open backs you shouldn''t be blasting these to compete with outside noise, so don''t expect them to be practical if you don''t have a quiet space. With EQ you can get hear the details in bass you won''t get with the SHP9500, and the rest of the range is smoother as well as more detailed. It was clear to me how good these were compared to the Philips, but I have sensitive ears, if you don''t know if your ears are sensitive they aren''t. I haven''t put the Philips on since I got the HD 560S, I felt practically cheated and the price is justified when you consider how many experiences you enjoy compared to ~50 dollars for a 2 hour movie trip, and hundreds of hours of great audio.

    I recently started over on my headphone collection and this is the first pair I bought. I knew I could count on Sennheiser to deliver on performance.

    I was pleasantly surprised at the comfort. When I had 58X Jubilees I had to put a pilot pad on them for comfort. With the 560s I don''t need that as there is adequete padding on the band. Also, the pads feel softer and more plush. The clamp was a bit tight at first but it soon stretched out to an acceptable level. Eventhough it''s mostly plastic it feels sturdy.

    They deliver a very neutral sound signature. It''s clean and accurate. I find them to be a good ally while gaming for directional sounds. When listening to music they are peaceful and pleasant. You hear all the notes and voices sound wonderful. The bass can be heard but rarely felt. They are not fatiguing and I could wear them all day.

    If you are looking for clean accurate sound these are for you. If you are looking for punchy head shaking bass you may want to look elsewhere. I''m sure they could be EQ''d to whatever you like but out of the box I find them to be a good all rounder that are reliable.

    I''ll be comparing the 560S to the Sundara throughout. Here’s how things will be weighted. Please keep in mind these scores are relative to the Sundara’s price, not to the 560S’s price. Also, please keep in mind that this is my opinion.

    Box, Presentation, and accessories: 5%

    Build and Comfort: 20%

    Bass: 10%

    Mids: 15%

    Treble: 15%

    Soundstage/Imaging: 15%

    Technical Performance: 20%

    Box, Presentation, and accessories:

    The Sundara comes in a very nice box that has a fake velvet-like material lining the inside. The pads come a bit squashed, but even out quickly. Comparatively, the 560S’ box is basic, but works. Neither should be damaged in shipping.

    Sundara comes with a short 3.5mm to dual 3.5mm cable, which is of ok quality. It coils a bit, but isn’t terrible. It ends in a 90 degree plug, which shouldn’t be a thing. They are trying to market this as a “mobile friendly” headphone, which it isn’t, so that 90 degree plug is useless and gets in the way. It also includes a 3.5mm to quarter inch adapter.

    The cable that the 560S comes with is terrible. Like the worst cable I have ever had kind of bad. Even worse than the X2HR’s cable. It’s way too long and terminates in a quarter inch. They do this because the 5XX series of Senns were bought alot by people with home stereos. Because of the long length and termination, it is a pain to use with a desktop amp and a nightmare to use with my portable DAC/amp. You have to use an included \~5 inch adapter to convert to 3.5mm. Why not just terminate in 3.5 to begin with? Awful cable.

    Sundara: 7/10

    HD560S: 2/10

    Comfort and Build:

    My first experience with Sundara in the comfort department was not good. The 2018 version clamped too much, jabbed my ears, and caused jaw pressure issues. I am happy to report that the 2020 version has fixed all of those issues. The only other remaining issue is that the ear cups are a bit small, and my ears can get crowded at times, but it''s not bad. I have a larger than average head, and my ears are very sensitive on the outside. Guys, I am very picky about comfort, and I think Sundara is fine. For context, I sent back the SHP9500 because they were uncomfy to me. The 560S would have been great if not for two things. They have plenty of space for my ears on the inside, but there is a protrusion at the back that pokes them and hurts very quickly. They also have an uneven strong clamp on my face, which doesn’t help. I could make them work, but the Sundara are better. Of course, after a while, both become uncomfy, but that happens to almost anything.

    For the build, it''s interesting. Usually Hifiman has the worse build and Sennhieser the better, but it''s the opposite this time. The Sundara are built very well, almost completely out of metal. The only issue is the adjustment mechanism scratches the metal and leaves a silver tone. Not a huge deal, but odd that it happens and they haven’t fixed it yet. I guess it’s a sure fire way to check if they have been used yet or not! The 560S are comparatively made out of mostly plastic, and feel somewhat cheap. They are a lot lighter though, and I would actually expect them to last longer than the Sundara due to the 5XX series’ reputation for longevity.

    Sundara: 8/10

    560S: 6.5/10

    Sound:

    Bass:

    Overall, the Sundara have better bass. I feel that it is more present over the anemic 560S’ bass response, and it is faster and quicker. The Sundara feels like it has a more impactful bass due to it’s excellent punch and slam qualities. You also can EQ the Sundara’s bass to your heart’s extent, not so much on the 560S. Obviously, the Sundara still has fairly neutral bass, but it’s right in line to where I prefer it.

    Sundara: 8.5/10

    560S: 7/10

    Mids:

    Both headphones have good mids, but the 560S has more present mids, almost to its detriment sometimes. The 560S can get shouty in comparison to the Sundara, while not gaining any resolution from the heightened mids response. The Sundara may even have better resolution here even while not being as forward in the mids. The Sundara’s mids are just, really good. Nothing really to say about them because they are so transparent and neutral. Right where they should be. The 560S is a bit more shouty and present, and you may like that. I can describe the shout as like the flare of the sun’s rays through glasses. It physically hurts, and prevents you from seeing what you want to. The 560S does the same thing to music very occasionally, and the Sundara does it much, much, less.

    Sundara: 9/10

    560S: 8/10

    Treble:

    This is interesting. The 560S and Sundara both have excellent treble for the price, and are somewhat similar to one another, but the Sundara is much more refined. It has better resolution and a more controlled and smoother response. Both have peaks, and both have sibilance, just at different spots. The 560S sounds a bit more “grainy” here and isn’t the resolution king at $200. The Sundara *IS* the resolution king at $350 though. Don’t fall into the hype, the 560S is not creating detail on the level of HD 6X0. The Sundara exceeds HD 6X0 handily. I feel that the 560S is a on the side of bright neutral, while the Sundara is more close to neutral in the treble response. The Sundara is definitely where I would like it to be more, it doesn’t sound as harsh or overbearing as the 560S.

    Sundara: 9.5/10

    560S: 7.5/10

    Soundstage and Imaging:

    I’m not the best here, but I can definitely tell that the Sundara has a much larger stage than the 560S. The 560S is much larger than HD 6X0, but the Sundara destroys it. The 560S would be described as more “flat” as not as vertical, and more “accurate” to the original recording, but the Sundara just gives a more surrounding and deep soundstage. The Sundara is more layered and more encompassing. The Sundara still isn’t the best at the price though, about average in width. For imaging, both are amazing for the price, but the Sundara is better.

    Sundara: 8.5/10

    560S: 6/10

    Technical Performance:

    This is where Sundara shines. The overall sense of clarity and resolution is excellent here, and the distinction between individual sounds is some of the best that I have heard. Sundara also has an excellent punch and slam. The 560S is not slouch for $200 though, but it cannot compare to the Sundara. It is lower resolution, can’t show sounds as distinctly, and is very shy on punch and slam. Clarity is very good for the price though, but this could be due to the slight tilt toward brightness.

    Sundara: 10/10

    560S: 7/10

    Side Note: Power Requirements

    I would recommend an amp with both, but you can probably get away without one with the 560S. I feel that Sundara really needs an amp. On most devices I tried, I either could not get enough volume or had to crank it to get to an ok listening level.

    Overall Score and Value Conclusion:

    Sundara: 8.2/10

    560S: 6.2/10

    So, if it isn’t obvious, Sundara is better. It should be better, because it costs $150 more. The 560S isn’t bad at all though. In a price-relative rating close to $200, it would have scored at least and 8 I would predict.

    If you can pay the extra, I would for Sundara. It is just the superior headphone in most every aspect. If you want a transparent, accurate, and detailed jack of most trades then look no further than the Sundara.

    Briefly, I believe these are very good to excellent headphones. To my aging ears they sounded very flat with perhaps a very small bit of mid-bass emphasis. Can''t talk about the extreme top end because my ears no longer go up there. As some have mentioned that clamping force was a bit high but I''m a fairly large guy with a fairly large head so this might not apply to you. I pulled the earcups slightly away from my head to see what effect it had on the frequency response and it was minimal to negligible so I just bent the head strap slightly to reduce the pressure and now everything is good.

    Interesting headphones. First, the dislikes, which are my opinions and may be different for physical head shape and music type. Clamping force when new is a little tigher than I like, but like my HD 650 should be fine with a few months of use. I wish they had a different cable design as I don''t like the single 2.5mm TRRS on the left ear. The ear openings are long and a bit narrow for my ears. So long that I there is a gap where I can slide my finger up from the bottom and touch my earlobes without contacting the pads. I consider my ear size and shape to be average and don''t have this problem with the HD 650. Now for the likes: Soundstage seems a bit wider and more defined instrument location than the 650. Bass is not bad. Fairly tight and defined, but never what I would consider heavy. Better for the Jazz, Fusion, and Rock that I enjoy, but may not be good for electronic and HipHop and Rap. Mids are well balanced and just a bit forward, and treble is clean and detialed without harshness or sibilance. Overall well balanced and smooth with no surprises. Exceptional value if they hold up as well as the HD 650 has. The supplied cable is on the plus side of 9 feet long. I wish that they included a shorter one for mobile listening.

    Perfect, with the right DAC/AMP
    Reviewed in the United States on August 13, 2021
    I did this pair of cans with the "suggested" DAC/AMP the cheaper FiiO E10K ($80). While it powered it, it sounded weak or less-filled and anemic even in my opinion. The FiiO E10K sound Better with my 32 Ohms Samsung SR850 ($40). So I''m returning this DAC/AMP now that I''ve... See more
    I did this pair of cans with the "suggested" DAC/AMP the cheaper FiiO E10K ($80). While it powered it, it sounded weak or less-filled and anemic even in my opinion. The FiiO E10K sound Better with my 32 Ohms Samsung SR850 ($40). So I''m returning this DAC/AMP now that I''ve just connected these 560s Sennheisers to the FiiO K5 ($150). It''s a shame that you have to go for more power to power these 120 Ohms, but having given it more power, I now see WHY the reviewers (some of them experts) of these phones are so impressed. I''ve seen a 60+ year old "pro" praise these 560s ($200) with naming the Sundaras ($350) as being the only one better. I can see now that he had more power going into these to be able to say that no other phones are better except Sundaras, however the Sundaras are HIFIMANs and HIFIMANs generally have QC issues I see. So just to have slightly "better" phones would you go with HIFIMAN or Germany''s (though made in China''s) Sennheisers? This made me happy with my purchase of these, my first endeavor into studio reference phones (besides the Samsons I''ve used for 2 years). I will put the Samsons through this K5 just to see the difference there too. The Samson while cheap, and not as accurate or not with the best "imaging" (so more cluttered in awareness), are still excellent for the price for music with their more protruding bass (compared to the 560s). The 560s are just CLEAN period, now that I got the K5 driving it. The treble no longer pierces my ears with the K5 as it did with the E10K. It''s unbearable when underpowered, now it''s not so much like chalkboard being scratched.

    Pros: Plastic build design but very sturdy. I prefer this as it helps keep it on your head for hours. The ear cups are perforated so obviously expect that you can hear the outside but for me this helps bring air inside to avoid getting a hot, sweaty ear. The sound is perfect for my needs of PC gaming and music listening - it isn''t bass focused but there''s enough there to rumble a little (more than my 598 yellow). The treble isn''t too scratchy for me but it is there for more sensitive ears - to me this helps with spacial audio. These headphones have great imaging and better soundstage than my IEMs, it really helps with my gaming as I feel a little bit more present with hearing things as my surroundings. If you want to use for gaming and want to use voicechat I recommend adding a vmoda pro mic and you''ll need an adapter to connect it to the sennheiser proprietary port - they can also be found in Amazon. Cons: None yet.

    At this price point you''re getting an amazing pair of headphones. They have great detail and neutral sound. The soundstage is wide and imaging is very capable. They don''t take much to drive them, motherboard dac can handle them. Of course a solid dac/amp combo will really liven these up. Not bass heavy (open back design) but the frequency range isn''t fatiguing. The build quality is a 4/5, light and solid, but not quite comparable with HD6xx or similar. Over all these are praised with good reason, they might not be for everyone but they are a great headphones for analytical listening ie. gaming. 5/5 stars easily!

    For the price you get a pretty awesome sounding headphone with expectedly flat-ish tuning, crisp mids and highs, fairly great detail and tight bass. Bass response doesn''t bump hard or anything but its a clean representation overall. Really nice headphone for sitting back and really listening to music for all its little details and nuances but just a little too bright for me in the upper range for very long sessions. It can definitely be an all day headphone especially if you play games mostly or listen to voice/video content. Imaging is also great and soundstage seems okay, I just have nothing to really compare it to other than a 58x which has basically none.
