These Sennheiser headphones have 1,441 reviews on Amazon, 83 percent of which are five stars. They’re currently almost half price (£95, down from £180).
According to the product description, the “around-ear, open-back design delivers an impressively ‘open’ spatial presentation to improve the listening experience.” According to the reviews, this means an immersive listening experience, without the “closed” feeling of noise-excluding headphones. One reviewer (who lives in a small flat, with nearby neighbours, so can’t play music too loudly) notes that when they plug the headphones into the TV to watch movies, they can still hear the doorbell ring if they need to. Another five-star reviewer says the headphones have helped them notice details in music that they’d hadn’t noticed before.
