To me, Sennheiser remains the leader when it comes to hi-fi audiophile headphones.


The exact name of the model I have is HD 540 Reference (hence the title of my review)
I bought them 23 years ago at FNAC and I still use them every time I want to listen to music seriously and don't want to start a war with my neighbors. For practical reasons, I've been also using some wireless Sony cans (TMR-RF850R) for some years, but, to be honest, there's no comparison. I like my HD540 especially to listen to my vinyls with my Thorens TD190 turntable and a Pro-ject preamp. It's a real treat, pure Hi-Fi class.
I bought a spare cable because I sometimes have false-contact issues, which I think are due to internal damage of the cable. The quality of these headphones is given due to their semi-open design, which provides an exceptional sense of space.


I just noticed I didn't respect the suggested review form...Too bad, I'll leave it as it is.


Authentic sound and exceptional neutrality.
