The Sennheiser HD 518 open, circumaural headphones prove that quality and affordability can go hand in hand. They are fitted with Sennheiser's innovative E.A.R. technology to ensure accurate channeling of audio signals into your ears while their sophisticated Duofol diaphragms reduce unwanted resonances to an absolute minimum. And to amplify your listening pleasure even further, their ear pads and headband cushion provide outstanding wearing comfort, even for long listening sessions.
Eargonomic Acoustic Refinement (E.A.R.) for High Performance
These high-end open circumaural headphones use E.A.R. technology for outstanding sonic accuracy and clarity. Sennheiser's innovative "Eargonomic Acoustic Refinement" (E.A.R.) design channels audio signals directly into your ears. State-of-the-art, advanced Duofol diaphragms deliver transparency and minimal distortion, while highly optimised, field-strengthened neodymium ferrous magnet systems yield an excellent dynamic response. A surround reflector creates an extended spatial sound field for the lightweight aluminium voice coils chosen for high efficiency and excellent dynamics. The special diaphragm geometry reduces intermodulation distortion, while highly constant, compressed cellulose fleece reduces total harmonic distortion.
For more than 60 years the name Sennheiser has stood for the highest quality products and customised solutions across all areas of sound recording, transmission and reproduction. As one of the world's leading providers of integrated solutions for electro-acoustic products, systems and services, Sennheiser constantly meets the challenges of developing creative answers which satisfy the requests and requirements of customers.

Sound quality is of course the main highlight of all music listening devices, and certainly so for the HD 518's. The sound is vibrant with details, letting you very clearly listen to just about anything as if you were right there in the studio/audience. My biggest fear with these was that their preference for mid's and high's over bass would make them unfit for bass-heavy music, yet they still sound fantastic upon testing! If all you care about is dirty sub-bass, maybe I would look at other headphones, but the overall richness of these phones soundstage is definitely worth the cheap price and there's almost nothing else to be picky about. I upgraded to these from the closed HD 280 PRO's and I'm more than impressed. Well done Sennheiser.
I recommend doing as much research as possible before forking over this kind of cash for anything so don't solely rely on this review. For example, many other reviews say that the 558s are worth the extra $$$ but unless you have both pairs to directly compare, you won't know or even care what you're missing. These sound great in their own right which makes them a good value overall.
One thing, they come packaged with a regular jack 1/8 adaptor but using it on, lets say, an ipod, the plug is so big it looks ridiculous and can easily destroy your sound output pf your device.
You'll have to buy a cable separatly if you plan on using it on portable devices. If it's for you PC, then there is not much of an issue since you plug it in the back of it.
Still, these headphones deserve a 5/5 they deliver an incredible sound experience for the price asked.
