Sennheiser 500 Series

A symbiosis of top technology and the option of an extravagant or classic design. The new 500 Series from audio specialist Sennheiser is the ideal choice for highly discerning music lovers. The three new models, the HD 598, HD 558 and HD 518, are now replacing the successful predecessor models in the audiophile segment. 

To ensure a top-quality stereo sound experience, the three open, dynamic high-end headphones are equipped with Sennheiser’s specially developed E.A.R. (Eargonomic Acoustic Refinement) technology. Acoustic baffles inclined at a slight angle guide the audio signal directly to the ears. As a result, the excellent sound is optimally channelled. Powerful neodymium magnets and proven Duofol diaphragms guarantee natural, lifelike reproduction of even the finest musical details, while low-vibration plastic materials prevent distortions to the sound image. The HD 558 and HD 598 also feature a sound reflector that optimises the spatial sound effect. A gold-plated 6.3 mm audio jack plug provides an optimum connection to the audio source. A new feature is the detachable cable: the bayonet plug is unlocked with a simple twist, allowing it to be easily removed.
