The Sennheiser HD1 over the ear wireless headphones do have a fairly steep price tag which may scare some customers away, but if they are in your price range then you should definitely consider them.

There are a lot of more advanced features available to customers who purchase the Sennheiser HD1 over the ear wireless headphones. They offer immediate pairing, which means that if you are in the range of any NFC (Near Field Communication) device then you can connect to it through Bluetooth with a single touch. Another customer favorite is the fact that these headphones can connect to more than one device at a time.

Sound Quality

The Sennheiser HD1 over the ear wireless headphones have an amazing sound quality, but many would expect that from any of Sennheiser's headphones on the market. Customers have commented that these headphones are perfect for anyone who would consider themselves an audiophile as they feature a transparent and detailed sound that many have fallen in love with. One interesting feature about these headphones, however, is that you can listen to them either wirelessly or wired, and depending on how you choose to listen will affect how they sound. If you are wired in and listening to them passively they tend to have a very well balanced sound which some have mentioned can be just a little overwhelming when there is heavy bass at play. If you choose to listen to these wirelessly or wired but still in active mode, the sound is even better.

The one issue that customers have with the sound quality of these headphones is not even with the sound itself, but more with the lack of sound. Some customers have mentioned that the noise canceling aspect of this product is not as good as some would have liked. Some sounds can still slip in and be heard while wearing them which can be discouraging to some customers. For the most part, however, customers are happy with the sound and the noise cancelation aspects of these headphones.

Comfort

Most customers can agree that the Sennheiser HD1 over the ear wireless headphones can be very comfortable when wearing them. The leather ear cups are cushioned to make sure your ears stay happy when you are listening. The earcups are attached to a mounting pin on the headband which has a full 360-degree pivoting rotation that will allow you to adjust the headphones to fit your head as comfortable as possible. Customers appreciate that the inner diameter of the earcups are big enough so your ears do not feel too squished and cramped when you are wearing the headphones for too long. Some customers, however, have commented that they would have liked to have seen the earcups a little deeper to help increase the comfort level even more.

Reviewers have even mentioned that, even though these headphones can be a little bit bulky, they are still not too heavy. They do not feel like a burden on your head when you are wearing them and that is nice. Some mentioned that they do wish they were a little lighter than they are but that the weight did not lessen the comfort levels when wearing them.

These headphones boast a battery life of 22 hours which is impressive. The battery life, however, depends on a plethora of variables such as volume and what you are listening to. No matter what you are listening to and how loud you are listening, customers are impressed by the long battery life. One thing that customers wish they could change, however, is that when you start your headphones the voice prompts do not tell you the battery percentage like some other similar products on the market today.
