Just in to our headphone listening room, two new models from Sennheiser.

Successor to the legendary HD650, the Sennheiser HD660S handily surpasses them in performance and comfort, and is a great choice for relaxed listening at home due to the open back, around the ear design.  Now at a lower impedance to better pair with phones or tablets, the HD660S are $499.   For those on the go or who would like to be untethered from their music player, the Sennheiser HD1 wireless headphones offer active noise reduction, aptX Bluetooth connectivity, and a microphone for phone calls in a lightweight, around-the-ear minimalist design.  With wired operation as an option, the HD1 is a highly flexible, great sounding headphone for someone who’d like something a bit more multi-purpose.  $399.

If you’re in the market for a new set of headphones, both of these new Sennheiser models are highly recommended.
