How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Reviewed.com Headphones says:

These headphones are great. Not only do they provide a flat frequency response and clear sound, but their open soundstage helps provide a very realistic sound. Though these cans aren't perfect (we're still waiting on that to happen), they do field a strong performance, and should satisfy a large swath of audiophile consumers. They aren't able to go outside, but really, they were never intended to in the first place. Good show, Sennheiser!
