Sennheiser HD 660 S Headphone Review

Rating: 9.0.

In the audio community, the Sennheiser HD 650 is something of a legend – an excellent value headphone, it delivers exceptional audio quality without costing the earth. It is perhaps a bold move, then, for Sennheiser to release a successor to the much-loved HD 650, named the HD 660 S. With a price of £429, is this the new go-to headphone for budget audiophiles?

Instead of just re-tuning the HD 650 driver, the Sennheiser HD 660 S actually features an all-new transducer design and a lower impedance of just 150Ω. That means the HD 660 S is considerably easier to drive than its predecessor, giving it some extra versatility in that it can be easily used with portable music players. It’s still an open-back headphone, though, so not for use out and about, but it will sound better across a wider range of devices.

  • Impedance: 150 Ω
  • Connector: 6.35 mm / 4.4 mm Pentaconn

It has a 'gamer friendly' 120hz panel, but do the rest of the specs stack up?

    Seems like a really nice headphone. Might buy it in a few years when the price in the stores comes down a bit. I was able to pick up a HD 650 for only 286 EURO a few months ago.
