Comfy! - Reviews Sennheiser HD 540

The HD 540 headphones are reference headphones that fit completely around the ear. I purchased a pair of these when they first came out and have been using them every since then. The frequency response is great on them and the sound quality is top notch! The ear cup padding is very soft and I can keep them on my head for hours without even noticing that they are there.
The highs and mids sound great in these headphones, the sound is completely natural and it was easy to work with but the bass was sort of flat which is good for mixing but not for listening. When I would use these to listen to my iPod with I didn’t really like how the sound on the low end would project. But when I would mix a track in them I loved doing it because I was able to get a great mix on those low frequencies with them.
These headphones come with a 10 foot long cable and a 1/8 inch adapter. They are very light and take up little space. The frequency response is 15 hz to 28,000Hz with an impedance of 50 ohms. You can use these headphones for long sessions and not have to worry about getting a headache or worry about them getting uncomfortable.
The Transducer in them is a “duaFol” transducer and was fist in its class when they first came out. Since they have been out for a while now they can still be purchased but at an even lower price. Do not be afraid to purchase a used pair of these because they hold up very well and as long as the previous person has kept them in decent condition there is nothing to worry about. Also, Sennheiser is a German based company but they have a distribution office over here in the US so it is not hard to get them fixed if needed. They also have great customer service too!
