How to buy the best Sennheiser headphones for you

Though we review (and highly recommend) headphones from pretty much every manufacturer, from Beats to Bose, sometimes you already have a brand in mind. For shoppers committed to Sennheiser, you still have dozens of models that you need to sift through to find the right pair.

We’re here to help. We’ve reviewed a ton of Sennheiser models, including some of the company’s best headphones, and can help you narrow it down. Here is our guide to the best Sennheiser headphones, where to buy them, and what models are really worth your money.

Over-ear Headphones

Sennheiser makes some excellent over-ears, but there are dozens to choose from.

If you want a great pair of headphones for general use, Sennheiser has you covered. If you prefer over-ear designs (with large earcups that surround your entire ear), Sennheiser has over 40 different models to choose from.

In-Ear Headphones

The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless headphones deliver excellent sound—for a price.

Though Sennheiser’s in-ear lineup includes some truly premium (and premium-priced) in-ear headphones, we are especially partial to the company’s shockingly affordable CX100 earbuds. They’re just $30, and they sound awesome—though they don’t have much in the way of fancy features or wireless connectivity.

Need an affordable pair of earbuds to use with your phone (assuming it has a headphone jack or you still have your 3.5mm dongle)? These are a perfect fit. They do everything you want affordable earbuds to do, and nothing you don’t.

If you’re looking for wireless earbuds, Sennheiser also has a few excellent choices. For general commuting, the Momentum Free are the best-reviewed wireless earbuds in Sennheiser’s stable. Though battery life and water-resistance are lacking, they offer top-notch sound quality for $200 (and they’re closer to $150 on sale).

Headphones for your TV

Sennheiser makes some of the best wireless headphones for watching TV.

One area where Sennheiser stands truly alone is in the Wireless TV Headphones space. Whether you’re hearing impaired or just want to watch TV at night without disturbing other people in your home, Sennheiser is one of the best options you’ll find.

For people who find over-ear designs uncomfortable but otherwise would like the RS 195, the RS 5000 in-ear headphones are worth looking into also. They have similar speech-boosting modes that help with understanding TV and movies better, but still offer excellent all-around sound quality.
