PRODUCT REVIEW

Sennheisers HD 6 Mix DJ Headphones takes pride in being optimized for mastering and mixing. Sennheisers HD 6 is a blending of quality and performance both. The design of our model is somewhat similar to another great headphone by same brand HD 280 PRO. Our HD 6 Mix DJ headphones are similar in design to HD 280 Pro by Sennheisers but with a bit of change here and there. The changes that we are talking about here is in regards to design, for example, HD6 Mix DJ headphone is closed over-ear design that has leather padding for ear-cups along with the headband. The headband is just like that of HD 280 of Sennheisers. Optional velour pads are included as well. The major noticeable change is in regards to the detachable cables. The box has detachable cables included too. These cables come in both straight and coiled wire form. So if you intend to wear it outside, then all you have to do is to replace the cable.

The cable we are talking about has a special twist and pull plug system. This helps in locking the cable in place and cannot easily be pulled out of the device. The negative point is that it is a proprietary cable and needs to be replaced with Sennheiser cable. Also, you will not find Sennheisers HD6 Mix will not fold up for transportation. But Sennheiser has chosen for a sturdy adjustable design with lesser moving parts and includes a carrying case for easy transportation.
The sound of our Sennheiser HD6 Mix DJ headphones is quite alike to HD 280 Pro. So you can say that it has a good sound quality along with good advanced design. The closed ear-cups keep the audio in and unwanted background noise away from distracting you. It works great for people living in a busy city traffics or for some audio engineer who has to be exposed to all type of atmospheric sounds of a city.
Speaking about price. This headphone set is available around 150$ to 200 dollar range. It is best noise-canceling headphones under 200$. The price is justified if you compare with the accessories and also match it with the functionality of this headphone. Even if you compare it with other headphone sets, you will find Sennheisers HD6 Mix DJ headphones pretty reasonable to buy. You can buy them in black and enjoy looks with quality.
