Sennheiser HD 650 has been discounted by 40% thanks to this fantastic early Black Friday deal. With it in place, the audiophile-grade headset is down to US$299.95 from US$499.95.

Sennheiser has been offering its HD600 lineup of headphones for about 30 years now. And throughout the time, we've seen some great entries, such as the Sennheiser HD 650.

For those wondering, the HD600 headphones stand out for delivering a true-to-life sound experience. The acoustics and drivers are tuned to present sound as intended by the recording artists. Sennheiser HD650, for example, achieves this precision through its accurate audio reproduction across the frequency range.

Plus, the open-back design of the Sennheiser HD650 contributes to a wide and immersive listening experience. However,  because of the open-back design, the HD650 allows ambient noise in while letting the music's sounds out. Thus, they're not ideal for outdoor listening.

But Sennheiser designed the HD650 with studio setups in mind, to begin with. For context, this audiophile headset has an impedance of 300 ohms. This implies that you cannot directly connect these headphones to your MacBook (2023 MacBook Air curr. US$1099 on Amazon) or other standard audio sources. Instead, the headset demands a dedicated DAC with enough power to get the cans working (FiiO BTR5 curr. US$99.99 on Amazon).

In addition to delivering true-to-life audio, the Sennheiser HD650 excels in providing a comfortable fit. Furthermore, the build quality is on par with other high-end headphones in the market. These features collectively make this audiophile headset an excellent choice for professional listening, especially at the discounted US$299.95 price tag that it currently has on Amazon.
