Sennheiser HD 559

What's in the box

  • 3 m cable / 6.3 mm straight plug


you're getting really good headphones that don't overly sweeten the sound while still giving it plenty of oomph, and are comfortable to wear for as long as you can keep them on.

With some slight hiccups to the sound, but an overall decent listening experience, this headphone is only truly hindered by the lack of a 3.5mm stereo adapter plug that comes standard on almost every other Sennheiser headphone.
