Sennheiser makes some of the best headphones in the world. Its top-end HD 800 headphones are one of just a couple of pairs of receive our Editor’s Choice award. The new Sennheiser HD 700 bridge the gap between this £1000 pair and the £300 HD 650. From any other manufacturer, a £600 set like these would be top dog, and they have a lot to prove.
The Sennheiser HD 700 headphones borrow design chops from their big brother, the HD 800. They have a similar space-age look, with cups full of silvery sections, split with a mix of curves and sharp, defined lines. It’s a design that makes the HD 650 look rather plain – but that’s not to say many won’t prefer the more sober looks of the all-grill 650s.
