Sound quality

The following review was tested with a FiiO M15.


The Behringer HC2000 has a super midrange-full sound with a very strong emphasis on the midrange.


Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.


Sound quality general comment
  • Original Sound Fidelity: B+
  • Recommendation: D-
  • Personal preference: D-


The HC2000 is excellent in that it offers high resolution appropriate for monitor headphones at a low price, but the sound balance is basically ruined. Not only are they extremely unreliable for monitoring purposes, but they also sound uncomfortable and uncomfortable to listen to for music appreciation.


I have not had headphones this bad in quite some time, and it was a valuable experience.
