Sennheiser HD579 are ideal for use at home, especially with a home stereo, with their 3m replaceable cable. The 50 ohm drivers will work well with receivers and dacs and their open back design provides a natural, large, spacious sound, ideal for live recordings and recording done in a venue - the sound feels less inside your head and there is a better sense of being there.
Comfort is top notch - light weight, little clamping on the sides, huge earcups, soft headband padding and the velour earpads add up to zero issues and great long term comfort for a wide variety of head sizes.
The silver finish looks sharp and the build quality is high - the cable and pads can be replaced years later easily, simply by calling Sennheiser's excellent parts department in Montreal (Sennheiser is an industry leader in parts availability in Canada, allowing you to get more use out of your initial investment).
