3 Star Review  productwiki.com - Jul 13, 2011

The HD 518 is a pair of mid-range headphones from Sennheiser that offer an alternative to the other models in the companys HD product line. Featuring a distinctive grille-cloth-inspired exterior, this model incorporates Sennheisers own E.A.R. (Eargonomic Acoustic Refinement) technology for discrete audio channelling across low, middle and high frequencies. Two custom-engineered Duofol diaphragm filters have been included to reduce the likelihood of unwanted distortion, promoting signal transparency in conjunction with twin neodymium ferrous magnets for preserved dynamic quality. Extensive listening sessions are made possible via the HD 518s soft, felt-covered earpads, with an additional cushion on the units headband for maximized comfort. A single-sided three-meter cable is included for device connectivity, with a native 1/4-inch connector and an 1/8-inch adapter for various applications. Features Matte Grey aesthetic Circum-aural over-ear design E.A.R. channelling technology Soft earpads/headband cushioning Duofol diaphragms Neodymium magnets Aluminum voice coils 3.5-milimeter stereo jack ... PROS: (1) classic Sennheiser look (2) comfortable circum-aural design with soft padding (3) great build quality (4) removable 2.5mm single sided cable - easy to replace if damaged or an upgrade is desired (5) affordable for an audiophile level pair of headphones ... CONS: (1) not much of a looker (2) all-plastic design (3) rougher padding than the velour found on the higher end units (4) ugly grills

Crutchfield has collected 6 user reviews for this product with an average rating of 5.0 out of 5 stars. The most recent reviewer said, "Very nice headphones, I would say they are the one of the best at this price point. They really bring out details in songs that you may not have heard before. I would recomend pairing these with a decent headphone.amplifier to really bring out more bass."
