Natural and accurate reference sound
With linear acoustics tailored to extended listening sessions and smooth, gratifying bass performance, the HD 560S was crafted for the analytical audio enthusiast.
Reveal the truth in your music.
Today’s audiophiles monitor their music with measured purpose on a wide range of devices from headphone amplifiers, audio interfaces, computers, and more.
The HD 560S delivers the linear performance required by analytical audio enthusiasts at a breakthrough value, allowing the listener to have an honest look inside their music.
Open earcups for open minds
The HD 560S features an open-back design that provides natural propagation of sound waves.
The E.A.R. (Ergonomic Acoustic Refinement) angled driver alignment recreates the optimal triangular listening position you regularly find in hi-fi loudspeaker setups. This combination creates a wide, articulate soundstage without the need for room treatment, letting you hear the neutral version of your music unaffected by the artifacts of a confined space.
The HD 560S transducers are specifically tuned for accuracy, offering dependable A/B comparisons of components, remasters, and media formats.
Comfort is king
Although the HD 560S sound is rooted in the reference-level DNA of the beloved HD 660S, its comfort mechanics are based on the chassis of our ultralight HD 599.
A headphone this neutral deserves a distraction-free fit and a “barely there” feel on the listener’s head. Even the velour earpads have been carefully considered to keep all contact points soft to the touch. The open, around-the-ear design offers benefits beyond natural sound—the ventilated cup remains cool without ever needing to touch the wearer’s ears.
It’s all about connection
Because audiophiles frequent a variety of sources, we developed the HD 560S to provide an exceptional experience regardless of the playback system.
The detachable 1,8 meter cable provides the perfect amount of freedom to access your gear, no matter how it may be oriented within your setup. The 3,5mm plug lets you connect to headphone amplifiers and most hi-fi sources while a 6,3mm screw-on adapter ensures you can extract the most out of your reference material on portable digital audio players and countless other audio devices.
