Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"It was not comfortable to me to use the kit cable with 3.5 mm adapter and 3 m length."
_
"Also, the 518s 3 8 to 1 4 adapter is ridiculously huge and the cord is excessively long."
_
"Even most amps and DACs use 3.5mm and having to use the adapter is annoying."
_
"(Probably no open headphone is best for you in that case).The bad: It's annoying that the plug is 1 4 with an adapter to 1 8."
_
"only problem is that the headphone jack with the adapter is really long and heavy."
_
"And unfortunately I didn't realize that the headphones require the adapter to listen on a handheld device."
_
"Anyway, the sound quality is good, build quality seems good, my only small complaint is that the converter does not fit in my computer 3.5mm, however I am pretty confident it is because the jack is a little worn, it could be the weight of the adapter pulling it out."
_
"The port has remained rigid and hasn't been broken by the hefty adapter, so for those users hesitant to buy this product for that reasons then you don't necessarily have a reason to worry."
_
"(Probably no open headphone is best for you in that case).The bad: It's annoying that the plug is 1 4 with an adapter to 1 8."
_
"sound quality is good, headphone is built well, but we have trouble with the adapter piece staying in the jack, its too loose and keeps slipping out."
_
"They come with a 1 4 inch standard jack with an adapter to 1 8 and a good length of cable."

Audio

Audio:
"I can obviously hear stuff around me pretty clearly, but as long as I am not blasting the sound there is not that much leakage, so I don't know why there were comments about people worried about an entire plane hearing their audio."
_
"This is a minor inconvenience, and it doesn't appear to have impacted the audio quality nor done any damage to either the headphones' port or my computer's port."
_
"Quality build is above average detachable cable audio useful but no perfect audio !"
_
"Only problem, large1 8th inch adaptor broke laptop audio jack: suggestion: buy a Sennheiser short cable 3 5mm if you don't have the 1 4 inch plug."
_
"Its sad to think that Sennheiser, a brand Ive always counted on for audio fidelity, might be caving to this demand as well."
_
"- Sound is great but is a little bland when just plugged straight into an audio jack - but that was expected."
_
"If you accustomed to high-tech audio gear (or just REALLY love your music), invest a bit more and buy the high-end Sennheiser headphones."
_
"the best headphones never came with 1 8 in plugs because they were meant to be used with the best audio equipment."
_
"These are just great with onboard audio, assuming your motherboard is from this century."

Cable

Cable:
"It was not comfortable to me to use the kit cable with 3.5 mm adapter and 3 m length."
_
"Also, the 518s 3 8 to 1 4 adapter is ridiculously huge and the cord is excessively long."
_
"The asymmetry of cord weight is negligible, and only having a single cable reduces the risk of failure."
_
"Over the few days that I owned them I wasn't able to get the cord to straighten out so I can roll it or anything like that."
_
"My only complaint would be the cord."
_
"I just like the idea of having a cord to replace in case it gets damaged instead of having to toss out the headphones."
_
"These are an amazing experience, but these were made for mainly for studio use, so the cord is long and the end is bulky but it's ok because it is for studio, but it's the comfortable headphones I ever wore, and sound absolutely amazing, beautiful beautiful quality"
_
"First, the cord is ridiculously long and tangles far too easy."
_
"Cons are nonexistent the only thing you might want to change is the cord which is easily replaced."
_
"Cord disconnects, which is great, because if the cord breaks you can replace it and still keep your headphones."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"I had been using the hd540s and they're infinitely more comfortable but that may be because they're more broken in (15ish years old)."
_
"They are comfortable and provide a good, but not great sound."
_
"The ones he tried on are either too expensive, not comfortable for long wear or sound terrible."
_
")Best of all, these headphones are super comfortable."
_

_
"- Very comfortable even with glasses- Great crisp highs and hard hitting lows."
_
"The HD 650 is a little more comfortable to wear, but the HD 518 ear cushions are pretty comfortable."

Connector

Connector:
"My granddaughter pulled on them and ruined the jack so I ordered a better pair that I would keep out of her reach."
_
"I broke my headphone jack from hitting it at the jack."
_
"only problem is that the headphone jack with the adapter is really long and heavy."
_
"The converter is a bit bulky (no real way to solve that problem since 1 4 jacks are so large) so if you want, you can purchase a 3.5mm cable from Sennheiser for around $15, although I have yet to run into an issue with it."
_
"Only problem, large1 8th inch adaptor broke laptop audio jack: suggestion: buy a Sennheiser short cable 3 5mm if you don't have the 1 4 inch plug."
_
"Anyway, the sound quality is good, build quality seems good, my only small complaint is that the converter does not fit in my computer 3.5mm, however I am pretty confident it is because the jack is a little worn, it could be the weight of the adapter pulling it out."

_
"They come with a 1 4 inch standard jack with an adapter to 1 8 and a good length of cable."

Design

Design:
"However, due to the open design, if you are trying to block out the world, you will be unable to do so, although it does make for an interesting experience when you can still hear the outside world but with its own background music."
_
"They are well designed, very comfortable, sound real nice, I may be a little hard of hearing and have to turn it up higher than the average user so maybe they are plenty loud enough for the average user."
_
"Comfort, design are a cut above."
_
"Its construction is of very high quality, have a beautiful design, the sound is great and are very comfortable to wear."
_
"Unlike HD 419 that can cause you to sweat, this one has good aerial design that gives you comfort even in a hot room."
_
"The open ear design creates great audio, but of course there will be sound leakage to your surroundings, but also gives you spacial awareness in the room."

Fit

Fit:
"Anyway, the sound quality is good, build quality seems good, my only small complaint is that the converter does not fit in my computer 3.5mm, however I am pretty confident it is because the jack is a little worn, it could be the weight of the adapter pulling it out."
_
"Doesn't fit well with glasses."
_
"At first the fit was a little tight, but they've broken in quite nicely."
_
"The only thing that I can see that some people might find irritating is that you need an adapter to fit the plug into a standard headphone jack, so it causes the plug to stick out excessively far from whatever device you're plugging it into."
_
"So there are many models maybe way too many making it difficult, sort of picking shoes on the Internet - may or may not be the best fit or feeling."
_
"----------------Fit & Feel:----------------The headphones are very light, which makes them nice for long-term wearing."
_
"I'm used to Sennheiser cans being a fairly tight fit, so this was a nice surprise."
_
"Anyway, the sound quality is good, build quality seems good, my only small complaint is that the converter does not fit in my computer 3.5mm, however I am pretty confident it is because the jack is a little worn, it could be the weight of the adapter pulling it out."
_
"Great product, snug fit and good sound quality! "
_
"The bass pumps for me--yet not too much, just right, they are light on your head, comfortable, they dont feel cheap, they have a good weight to them, the ear pads fit perfectly around my ears."
_

Frequency

Frequency:
"Because theres no love for the middle frequencies, warmth and depth are completely absent from the sound profile."
_
"The only downside I believe to the frequency response is the bass tones, beginning at around 90-80Hz and continuing on to about 30hz."
_
"They may not be as good when looking at a frequency response chart, but they sound great."
_
"Both were in a similar price bracket to these HD 518 cans, and both provide excellent flat frequency response and a true listening experience."
_
"Neither the low nor the high frequencies feel like an accurate representation of the original track, and as a result there is a strong impression of heavy post-processing even when none is performed."
_
"One positive: frequency separation is very good, and I didnt perceive any drop in either end of the spectrum when multiple sounds occurred at the same time."
_
"The individual drivers appear to be able to handle a wide range of frequencies separately, which is a shame because none of them play together particularly well."
_
"The reason the Sonys stand out in comparison is because they provide a clear, clean sound that drops some of the lower frequencies to focus on the mid to high range, which works well for voice."

Gaming

Gaming:
"The sound is very nice but may not be best for how we are using them currentlyWe are using them on computers for gaming and music and there just is not much volume."
_
"That being said, when I plug these headphones directly into my AV receiver (using 1 4 plug) for music listening (sometimes movies and gaming as well) - any regrets I may have had tend to go away."
_
"Default apple earbuds, Beats (*shudder* wasn't the best decision I made), a gaming headset but nothing could have prepared me to be absolutely blown away by audiophile grade headphones like these."
_
"If your getting this for gaming, I'd recommend hyperx cloud 1."
_
"Music was great but gaming fell short."
_
"Very comfortable and great for gaming and listening to EDM."
_
"If you have a dedicated mic and need a good set of headphones for gaming I'd definitely recommend these."
_
"Great upgrade from your standard gaming headset quality."

Level

Level:
"At a near uncomfortable volume level with them on, the sound coming from them when off wasn't too bad."
_
"I haven't used them with glasses so I can't talk about the comfort level."
_
"They were comifortabe to wear but sound was only okay and not what I had hoped for so I spent a lot of time tweaking levels and not really enjoying the music."
_
"The only negative I can say about the sound is the volume level."
_
"The open back or style is exactly what I wanted, this allows me to hear the ability to hear things in my environment when volume is at a reasonable level."
_
"Superior entry level headphones."
_
"A perfect clean sound, balanced levels of bass."
_
"I would have given 5 stars if the ear pads were replaceable, but to get this level of sonic accuracy for $100 is pretty amazing! "
_
"The main benefit was smooth and clean volume, well past the level that I would ever listen at."

Light

Light:
"BUILD QUALITY & FIT: It's all a bunch of hard plastic and it's fairly light, but it doesn't necessarily feel flimsy."
_
"----------------Fit & Feel:----------------The headphones are very light, which makes them nice for long-term wearing."
_
"All in all, they're comfortable enough for marathon sessions and light enough to carry on the go."
_
"Awesome headphones, super light and comfortable."
_
"On the positive side that does make them pretty light and comfortable to wear."
_
"The bass pumps for me--yet not too much, just right, they are light on your head, comfortable, they dont feel cheap, they have a good weight to them, the ear pads fit perfectly around my ears."

Listening

Listening:
"but one thing was not good maybe open style headphonewhen you listening music the people around you can hear your musictotally it was good."
_
"If you wear glasses while listening to these, it will get uncomfortable quickly."
_
"A person can hear the whatever the user is listening to from quite the distance, so may not be good for a dorm room or that type of application."
_
"One drawback about the headphones is that everyone can hear what you are listening to, or can hear who you are talking to on Skype for example."
_
"That being said, when I plug these headphones directly into my AV receiver (using 1 4 plug) for music listening (sometimes movies and gaming as well) - any regrets I may have had tend to go away."
_
"Probably don't appreciate the nuances...then again I'm listening to mylaptop and my phone (rarely)."
_
"The best way I can describe it is, say your listening to rock, lower end headphones make it seem like your hearing every member of the band right after another really super fast."
_
"Both were in a similar price bracket to these HD 518 cans, and both provide excellent flat frequency response and a true listening experience."
_
"I bought this item through someone from Amazon, it's AMAZING, I LOVE IT, it has it all around, I'm awake till 3AM listening to music I can't have enough, that aside, the built is rigid, cushions are extremely comfortable and sits on the ear with no problems at all, low and med are amazing, little out of place with high."
_
"This is to say that acoustic and easy listening music will sound better on the less aggressive models while modern pop, rock, and techno music will sound better on the more aggressive sets."
_
"Very comfortable and great for gaming and listening to EDM."

Loud

Loud:
"I broke them in for hours before putting some loud music on them, still get distortion."
_
"Of course, getting that loud can start to create some discomfort, but it does happen."
_
"Unless of course, you're listening at high volumes, which these cans can go very loud to the point of causing hearing damage."
_
"The only negative I could think of was that when playing any music loud enough, it bleeds through the headphones, and the cord length is rather long (but this can come be a positive depending on your needs)."
_
"Full volume is a bit too loud for me but still pretty clear."
_
"Don't get me wrong, I had them loud, but I've driven my Sony MDR7506 harder, without distortion, and only I could hear them."
_
"They do sound great like I mentioned and are medium loud, but I would of figured them to be louder, that's all."
_
"Even at low volume the music is audible enough around you such that other people can identify which song your listening to and at full volume they sound about as loud as my laptops speaker (which aren't particularly loud but you get the idea).So fantastic headphones when they are on your ear but if you are buying these to listen to music in a quiet place they might not be for you."
_
"My roommates can hear everything I listen to loud and clear"

Music

Music:
"I broke them in for hours before putting some loud music on them, still get distortion."
_
"Either incidentally or intentionally, a lot of music I listen to has a dirty recording (I was worried I would hate everything that was intentionally low-fi."
_
"They were comifortabe to wear but sound was only okay and not what I had hoped for so I spent a lot of time tweaking levels and not really enjoying the music."
_
"I wish I hadn't bought them, and will just add them to my collection of headphones that don't work well with Baroque organ music."
_
"Only problem I have is the bass is a little heavy for classical music but other than that its alright and I recommend just leaving the EQ alone on your audio software (flat)."
_
"The only negative I could think of was that when playing any music loud enough, it bleeds through the headphones, and the cord length is rather long (but this can come be a positive depending on your needs)."
_
"As for volume and noise leakage: The music is perfectly audible (if faint) at the lowest volume setting while letting me hear what's going on around me."
_
"It's pretty much how music is supposed to sound."
_
"Music was great but gaming fell short."
_
"I bought this item through someone from Amazon, it's AMAZING, I LOVE IT, it has it all around, I'm awake till 3AM listening to music I can't have enough, that aside, the built is rigid, cushions are extremely comfortable and sits on the ear with no problems at all, low and med are amazing, little out of place with high."

Noise

Noise:
"This headphones have not a good noise cancelling but the rest of the features are excellents."
_
"The only problem I had with it is that it isn't noise cancelling."
_
"However, I'm moving to a noisy office environment, so I wanted to upgrade to something with noise cancellation, which unfortunately these do not."
_
"The cord is high quality - no crackle or noise when moved, and does not tangle easily."
_
"As for volume and noise leakage: The music is perfectly audible (if faint) at the lowest volume setting while letting me hear what's going on around me."
_
"The sound is also very good, not noise canceling, but I did not need to be."
_
"Manipulating the headphones does not cause any creaking noises, which is good, and I do not feel like they will break in my hands."
_
"Plugged into my computer I have to keep volume around 8% max in order to keep my neighbors from getting a dose of what I'm listening to and although it is nice you can't really block outside noise well."
_
"Overall: buy them if you want to hear a good amount of bass and not be drowned in other noises."

Plug

Plug:
"(Probably no open headphone is best for you in that case).The bad: It's annoying that the plug is 1 4 with an adapter to 1 8."
_
"So quit complaining about the 1 4 plug."
_
"One minor complaint is that the included 6.3 mm to 3.5 mm plug adaptor is long, so be careful, in case you are concerned about the plug ripping out of the jack of your iPod, laptop, TV, ETC."
_
"The only thing that I can see that some people might find irritating is that you need an adapter to fit the plug into a standard headphone jack, so it causes the plug to stick out excessively far from whatever device you're plugging it into."
_
"And i didn't care about the fact that i had to plug it into an adapter before i could plug it into anything else (that's how my stuff broke)."
_
"(Probably no open headphone is best for you in that case).The bad: It's annoying that the plug is 1 4 with an adapter to 1 8."
_
"the best headphones never came with 1 8 in plugs because they were meant to be used with the best audio equipment."
_
"You can also remove the plug from these headphones by pressing upward and then twisting, which is great."
_
"Pros (for me):Soundstage - wide, tall, farSeparation - clarity and sense of space between different soundsImmersive and engagingNon-fatiguing soundVery musical soundingOverall enjoyable music listening experience plug (I use with Aune T1)Cons (for me):Slightly mid-centric (warm) soundSlightly recessed highs (rolled off) makes me itch for a little more brightness."
_
"I everything's great except for the 6.3mm jack plug and the ear pads."

Price

Price:
"All in all I cant complain too much for the price though."
_
"With today's ridiculous prices, I personally think others are insane for paying more than this."
_
"Simply amazing I hate the fact that they are so good for there price (75.00 when I bought them) that I might have to buy more of them i can simply say that now I own a pair i can't use any of my other headphones they sound like garbage in comparison"
_
"For the price it would be hard to beat."
_
"It feels cheap to the touch and I'm worried I'll break it."
_
"I got tired of replacing my cheap, easily broken headphones every month, so I did some research for a high-quality, reasonably priced product and found a wealth of good reviews about the Sennheiser HD518."
_
"Both were in a similar price bracket to these HD 518 cans, and both provide excellent flat frequency response and a true listening experience."
_
"Really good sound for the price."
_
"- Build quality is decent, but you cant ask much for this price"
_
"Compared to the Sennheiser HD 650 Open Back Professional Headphone, the HD 518 has about 80% of the quality enjoyment for 1 5 the price."
_
"The HD 518 is a good choice for the price, but if you can afford the much more expensive HD 650 (probably with the addition of better amp and DAC) then you can get less distortion, smoother sound, and fuller bass."

Quality

Quality:
"Anyway, the sound quality is good, build quality seems good, my only small complaint is that the converter does not fit in my computer 3.5mm, however I am pretty confident it is because the jack is a little worn, it could be the weight of the adapter pulling it out."
_
"This is a minor inconvenience, and it doesn't appear to have impacted the audio quality nor done any damage to either the headphones' port or my computer's port."
_
"It wasn't the hugest sound, and it wasn't the best quality sound (think construction paper vs. glossy magazine), but the enjoyment was just like a diorama - the depth, and separation of elements; it was novel, engaging and, immersive."
_
"Sound quality:Sound quality is HORRIBLE out of the box, give them time to burn-in."
_
"Build quality is good, but I'm a bit worried about future fraying of the fabric on the headband and ear pads."
_
"These are an amazing experience, but these were made for mainly for studio use, so the cord is long and the end is bulky but it's ok because it is for studio, but it's the comfortable headphones I ever wore, and sound absolutely amazing, beautiful beautiful quality"

Range

Range:
"I had an absolutely wretched pair of headphones I got from Grocery Outlet (I know, LOL forever) for $10 that I was using for over a year, because \_(')_ , but not only was the dynamic range terrible, it made my ears unbearably sweaty after a couple hours of use."
_
"The individual drivers appear to be able to handle a wide range of frequencies separately, which is a shame because none of them play together particularly well."
_
"It has great dynamic range and superb stereo separation."
_
"Of all the headphones I own in this price range, the HD518's are certainly up there among the best - for certain use cases anyway."
_
"The deep basses and highs sound great with house music and instrumentals, but he mid range vocal quality just doesn't cut it for me."
_
"I originally was looking for those great bang-for-your-buck headphones in the $30-$50 range, like the Panasonic RP-HTF600S, JVC HARX700, and so on, and I almost bought the Panasonics!"

_
"The open-cup design allows for a crisp sound response and wonderful bass without being an echo chamber."
_
"The sound is incredible from the high shrieks of electric guitars, and the bass response from the bass guitar and bass drum is amazing."

Sound

Sound:

_
"If they didn't sound good my score would be lower."
_
"Only complaint is it bleeds a lot of sound."
_
"I don't know why there are some 1 star reviews complaining about people in the same room hearing the sound from these."
_
"They sound better after a few weeks when they get broken in."
_
"Honestly, I can't say I recommend them although they sound really good at lower volume."

"The sound is also very good, not noise canceling, but I did not need to be."
_
"Thoroughly underwhelming set of headphones, yes they sound ok but are all plastic and after 5 months of babying them (I've had several plastic headphone breakages, so have been extra careful with this set) the right side has stopped working."

"Very good sound and bass."

Volume

Volume:
"At a near uncomfortable volume level with them on, the sound coming from them when off wasn't too bad."
_
"The only negative I can say about the sound is the volume level."
_
"As for volume and noise leakage: The music is perfectly audible (if faint) at the lowest volume setting while letting me hear what's going on around me."
_
"Full volume is a bit too loud for me but still pretty clear."
_
"At lower volumes, these things sound great but as soon as the volume pumps these things distort (mainly just bass, which makes everything else distort)."
