Nowadays, you won’t have a tough time finding a pair of headphones that cost you well over $500, but you might have a more challenging time narrowing down whether it is worth spending that much money. That said, there are several names in the audio industry worth trusting more than others, and Sennheiser is one that’s been delivering consistent results for over 75 years. Now, the manufacturer has put forth a bolstered version of its famous HD 660S, aptly named the HD 660S2.
While the new release doesn’t offer modern-day tech, namely Bluetooth connectivity or noise canceling, it certainly provides an enhanced listening experience compared to most traditional headphones you’d find for a similar price. Moreover, the HD 660S2’s enhanced set of 300-ohm transducers promotes a balanced soundstage no matter what you’re listening to, while its lighter voice coil assists by providing remarkable impulse response.
In addition to offering remarkable audial specs, Sennheiser’s latest headphones are as comfortable as ever. Highlighted by a pair of plush velour earpads and an ergonomic headband, the brand guarantees that its unique construction doesn’t only keep you tuned in for long listening sessions but promotes proper acoustic positioning for the best sound results possible.
Sennheiser’s audiophile-approved HD 660S2 headphones are up for pre-order for $600. They will be fully starting on February 21.
