With a frequency response between 16 and 23 kHz, the SHP-6000 comes with 40 mm drivers that can give you fantastic bass experiences. The ear pads are designed so that adaptive adjustments can be made to the shape of the ears. That way, it can improve the steadiness and balanced pressure on an individual's ears and head to obtain premium listening quality, including distortion blockage and wearing comfort. Even though the Philips SHP-6000 are praised for their quality, it should not be compared to Audio-Technica ATH-AVA300 models and Sennheiser HD 215 II, far more costly hi-fi models. The price of the headphone is justified with the built sound and quality. When using the 40mm drivers, the user will experience adequate mid-range and intense bass. The frequencies remain consistent, even at peak sound.

While the Classics have a dignified, warm, and natural appearance, the NEO has a cool, modern, and technical flair. This is noticeable in the price and the slightly more unique bass response: The NEO currently costs around $250 and is around $50 less than the Classics.

When DALI released iO-6, a noise-canceling wireless headphone, they also released a headphone without NC iO-4. All characteristics are identical. The headphones differ only in the amplifier chips and the noise-canceling system. Even though the differences are minimal, the company's engineers tuned both iO-4 and iO-6 to sound similar. As the first enclosed headset of the Danish brand, DALI iO-6 is a wireless headset with wireless connectivity, built-in noise cancellation system offering up to 30 hours of battery life. The headset is well-designed and features an excellent sound quality, including active noise cancellation of external noise.

When it comes to sound engineering, perfection is almost always out of reach. The development of such high-fidelity noise cancelling headphone is the result of engineers and high-end designers of Bang & Olufsen.
Beautiful-sounding audiophile headphones should be made of high-quality materials and should not be listened to while running or in the subway's noise but in their own homes' peace and comfort. That's the demand the budget hi-fi Sennheiser HD560S headphones are intended to satisfy. The headphones of the 500 series have always held a special place in the company’s model range.
