Very Good!

Was debating on whether or not to get the HD8's because of the DJ bass thing, but I could not justify spending the extra amount for the bass that is extra in them and for the stronger made headphone. The HD6 is by all means very sturdy, comfortable and flexible headphone! I had to buy the HD6 because my HD280's went out after about 7 years of use. In my own opinion after hearing the HD6's the bass in them is WAY more than sufficient and when EQ is applied to the low end they do hit really hard in the lows, if you want that kind of DJ low end feel. I needed a headphone that was good at isolating and mixing in live setups. For my setup in our live worship I found it was necessary to reduce some of the low mids and mid range, as for my taste the HD6's were a little too forward with those frequencies. But don't let that bother you. They sound good as they are and I can tell you they do help you find troubled frequency areas in a bad mix. The HD6 headphones do crank out the volume! WOW do they ever! My wife was also needing to hear a better mix during worship than what her monitors were giving her. I let her try the HD6's on and she looked over at me and said, "I gotta have these!" - So I ordered another pair! Thanks to Aaron Swaidner my sales rep at Sweetwater for helping me through this selection! We emailed back and forth at least 30 times, and each time he was right there to help me get the answers I needed. PLUS the refund return policy at Sweetwater rocks!

Amazing set of headphones!

So I must say, that I was a bit uneasy about changing my studio/remote mixing headphones up. I was so used to my Sony MDR 7506’s that I had been using for years. Well to keep it short, I went ahead and purchased these based on the fact that I was noticing myself changing my mixes slightly upon returning to the studio (if i had been mixing remotely) and it started to bother me. I looked at a few different sets, read some reviews and settled on these. Needless to say I no longer have that problem! These have very quickly become the my favorite pair of headphones, bar none. Extremely transparent- rich- clear sound. Much better than my Sony’s! I never find myself wanting to ‘fix’ my mix after mixing with these, when going back to studio monitors. The thing that really blew me away though was when i played an .mp3 back to back with a .wav of the same track.. The difference completely blew me away, to the point that I never want to here compressed audio on these again ! The .mp3 sounded lifeless and just bland, where the .wav was full and rich. The difference in files seemed to be much more apparent than I had ever heard on headphones. Amazing!

For The Serious Headphone Mixer

Upon plugging these into one's device and playing a trap playlist, the audiophile will come to experience an immediate dissatisfaction with these cans. It's the most depressing hour of a mixer's life... But then something amazing happens................................. In one quick instance, you realize that it's not the headphone that sounds bad!!! It's the mix!!! It's the mix!!!This is the most revealing headphone that I've ever come in contact with. It's like having Yamaha HS8s on my ears. If a record is badly balanced... You will hear it. If a track is badly panned, the holes in the stereo-field are extremely apparent. If a vocal isn't processed well? Reverb and delay won't hide it.. If a snare isn't eq'd particularly well, it will sound harsh. In addition, the bottom end is mostly true. Thus, the genius of these headphones.A good A/B test (if you want to contrast the difference in mixing jobs)... Play "Know Yourself" by Drake... Great song... Crap mix. Then play "Liquor" by Chris Brown - it becomes unmistakingly clear that this is an expertly mixed record (especially realized in the sound quality of the effects) compared to the former. You're welcome.Also, being able connect the headphone cable through either cup is a hilariously useful touch... Makes it easy to keep the cable out of the way regardless of how you're oriented to the headphone amp.Comes with a super useful case, two cables (one straight, one coiled), and extra set of breathable ear cups for use if your ears are prone to sweating. This is the perfect headphone package.***One con*** If you break the headphone cable, you will have to buy an after market replacement cable. Which sucks! Because there was a time when Sennheiser sold OEM replacement cables. Their cables are gorgeous! The aftermarket cables are "mehhhh". Only knock.

Excellent Studio Monitors

Excellent sound quality. They are the headphones that probably have the widest audio in their price range. They completely shut out outside noise.They are built very sturdy, and although they do not fold, they have a rather small form factor. They have jacks on both ears that use this secure locking mechanism. It makes it a little harder to put in, but impossible to pull out by accident.They are clearer and wider than ATH-M50s, and they seem like they'll last longer than my M50s, too.The carrying case is really nice, but it's difficult to pack the cables into it.

Amazing Professional Sound and Outside Noise Cancellation

The Sennheiser HD6 headphones were highly recommended to me by Pro Musicians,Recording and Live Sound Engineers, so I decided to purchase a pair and give them a try. I have been using my Sennheiser HD6 headphones every day for about 3 months now and still impressed with the Superl high quality sound and comfort without the over exaggerated bass. I love the easy attaching/detaching plug-n-turn Cable Design and includes a straight and a coiled cable that you can plug in the Left or Right cup (very convenient). You also receive one extra set of ear pads. The headphones, 2 cables, and the extra set of ear pads all come with a hard cover Sennheiser carrying case. I highly recommend this headset, one of the best purchases I made for my music passion.

Sweetwater Advice

Tyler Berggren

I do a lot of remote recording where I'm making all of my decisions solely based on what I hear from my headphones. So I wanted a pair of headphones that I could trust as much as my studio monitors. I'm so glad I grabbed a pair of Sennheiser HD6 Mix headphones! These are incredibly tranparent, detailed, and - most importantly - flat and unhyped. They are extremely comfortable and do a great job of isolating what I'm monitoring from outside room sound.
