Key specifications of the Sennheiser HD580

Headphone type

These headphones are open circumaural. Their outer ear covering is perforated so that air passes through. The atmosphere created is one where the sound coming through the earphones mimics the sound of the world around you. The soft covering also prevents pressure from forming over the ears and also prevents sweating and itching of the ears.

Headband

The headband is made of plastic and is a single fixed band that joins the ear pads together. The plastic is not of the best quality available in the market, but still better than most low-budget models with a good level of durability.

Frequency Response (Hz) – These earphones response to a frequency of anywhere between 12-3800 Hz.

Pros and cons

Pros of Sennheiser HD580

These headphones have a lot of pros and here we’ll take a closer look.

Cons of Sennheiser HD580

Summary

These are very good headphones for their price range. They are very well balanced in terms of the audio experience they provide. You can listen to music with them on without your ears sweating, because of the airy and open quality of the ear buds. Their frequency response is also very good, any changes in sound in the midranges is smoothly transferred.

The only problem is with the lower bass, which can be problematic if you listen to music in that lower range. These earphones are comfortable and fit well to your head. They aren’t too tight when you first get them and instead you’ll have a snug and comfortable fit.

Conclusion

Overall, we were very impressed by these headphones considering their price range. It’s hard to find anything better for this level of headphones and they also look great too. If their specifications suit your music listening tastes then they are something that will definitely be worth investing in. Not only do they sound great but they also have a solid build quality. Add all this to the trusted Sennheiser brand and you can’t go wrong.
