Sennheiser HD 580
The Sennheiser HD-580's are a set of high end studio headphones for all purposes. I don't own these headphones myself, but I often work with a producer out of his home studio and he's got these there. It's kind of a small space, so having headphones to help isolate sounds in there is definitely important. I haven't really used these in any other capacity other than listening during and after recording to get another perspective. However, they're certainly useful in other situations including monitoring during recording for players, checking mixes, and simple listening. The HD-580's are pretty big headphones and fit all the way over your ears. They're definitely pretty comfortable as I can see myself using them throughout a full day without it getting annoying or hurting too much since they're soft. In terms of sound quality, they're definitely nice sounding headphones as they seem to present a full and clear picture of your sound. They also have a very nice and rich low end presence, which isn't something too common with headphones in general. However, they're also well rounded with solid high and mid frequencies response as well. While the overall sound is impressive, I still wouldn't mix with these since I just don't think mixing on headphones is a good idea in general. Although the Sennheiser HD-580's are very nice headphones overall, I do think they're a bit overpriced. I honestly like the HD-280's just as much and they're a fraction of the price. Unless you're really looking to spend a lot of dough on a single pair of headphones, I'd still shoot for something like the HD-280's as they should do the job more times than not. That's no knock on the HD-580's themselves as headphones as they're awesome headphones, I just don't think they're worth the expensive price tag.

Sennheiser HD 580
Very good.


Good, but the bass-respond is some kind of flat

It's very relaxed to wear, no problems at all, even if you have some bigger ears, like me.

This headphone has been made of only the best material.

Need I say more?

Sennheiser HD 580
Open face headphone, very comfortable to wear (the atria are very soft and the headphone is in place without tightening the skull). The sound is pretty faithful, pretty well ventilated and very aggressive, bass and treble are not exaggerated, it can be used several hours without tiring. I had bought quite expensive there is a good ten years; price or is found secondhand now I would not hesitate!

Sennheiser HD 580
I use it for one month I found a small shop in Hi-Fi the seller did not have to convince me a long time. The sound is clear, defined, I find the correct spacialisation. Before I also had Sennheiser, the 500 then 570. In both models are too low this there is a lack of definition. This is a really good headphone over there is very little difference with the model just above the 600, it is the aesthetical, the small speaker are the same. I choose to do it again no problem. But I never listened to anything other than Sennheiser. I think I can use this headphone to correct the mix right now but I have to buy a good sound card that is up to my headphone.

Sennheiser HD 580
J used this headset for about 3 months, the look is a bit of a collector, comfort is of good quality, for it is its just wonderful, for me it is more than the hd 600, hd 600 is certainly the very arérien but at the expense of involvement of the same music, the seating in the low 580's HD as well as slightly centered listening is very nice, do not scrap the acute and the medium is never good enough, this headset deserves the best, is to say c a good cd, good cables, and a very good headphone amp in the price range of 200 to 350 euro here is the best headset that I have to listen, there Occasion ad on ebay around a hundred euro, this c price is a bargain.

Sennheiser HD 580
I bought this headphone a few years ago I think it was in 2000.

Same as Stephen, I find it very pleasant, I have others but this one I'm willing to spend a whole day with his head ...
It is very linear and not at all aggressive ... Everything is sharp but not dripping headphones or other low too present ...
To benefit pleinemment you need a good headphone amp, but beware of the connection (again, I said the same thing for the 25HD) even after having changed, I still have some problems with bad contacts. ..

Before buying it I had the HD 25 of the same brand, but also the AKG 340 (not to be confused with the 240 most popular), and I also buy a Beyer DT 150 ...
But this one I use it all the time for listening quality ...

The value for money is excellent!
