Sennheiser HD 518 Headphones

Gifts for Grads 2011
By , Rachel Rosmarin

Chances are your grad is a music buff, in some sense of the term. Be it moldy oldies or “Born This Way” by Lady Gaga, give the guy or gal some worthy cans to rock out with.

Sennheiser introduced the HD 518 headphones at CES this year, and these new cans are stylish as well as impressive. The open and around-the-ear design, coupled with excellent audio quality, makes this set of headphones some of the best you can buy for under $200 (and in many cases, under $130).

Senn’s new E.A.R. (Ergonomic Acoustic Refinement) technology is supposed to channel audio directly into your ears while maintaining excellent sound reproduction and deep bass levels. The 6.3mm stereo jack comes with a 3.5mm adapter, making the HD 518’s both home stereo and PC/Mac-friendly, a boon for any music lover. The speaker magnets are neodymium , which is standard fare these days, but the audio quality at this price point is hard to match.
