Sennheiser HD 569 Closed Back Headphone
The closed HD 569 with round ear design offers a flexible choice for the home entertainment area. It is powered by exclusive Sennheiser 50mm 50 ohm converters for high efficiency, excellent dynamics and extremely low distortion, so you can enjoy near audiophile sound quality. The “Ergonomic Acoustic Refinement” (E.A.R.) design directs audio directly to the ears, ensuring a listening experience that more closely matches the room. The closed round ear design offers excellent noise isolation. You can enjoy the full personal listening experience without disturbing others.
The HD 569 offers an attractive and contemporary look and is based on ergonomic principles for exceptional comfort. In addition to a 3m long cord for home use, a 1.2m long cord with in-line microphone and one button remote is supplied for effortless call management.
Enjoy the freedom to listen
The closed-ear design of the HD 569 offers you two advantages: First, a great sound stage, which Sennheiser’s exclusive transducer system fills with many details and powerful bass response. Second, effective sound insulation: outside noise stays outside, music stays inside. So you can enjoy your music without disturbing anyone.
Listen to your music, take your calls
The HD 569 is versatile and comes with two detachable cables. One is a 3m long cord with a 6.3mm straight plug for home use. The other is a 1.2m long cable with a 3.5mm straight plug, but mostly with a 1 button remote and a microphone with which you can manage calls.
As sound, as comfort
With its over-the-ear design, the HD 569 offers exceptional comfort for even the longest listening sessions, or phone calls, thanks to its large earphones and soft, replaceable ear pads.
Pros: Excellent audio quality (once you have set the equalizer correctly) at a relatively low price.
It contains an excellent quality built-in microphone. (ideal for games, despite the absolute lack of marketing as such)
Interchangeable / removable cable. (if the cable is damaged)
CONS: The atria rest on the ear and not around the ear. With prolonged use, this leads to slight earache if you are still getting used to it.
