We can’t go talking about some of the best loudest headphones without mentioning one by Sennheiser.

Although these headphones are wired with a non-detachable cable, this closed back headphone delivers some of the best audio even on low sound frequency with a punchy bass.

We’ve never mentioned headphones by Dolby and before you get surprised at the price, the Dimensions headphones are some of the best loudest headphones if you’re willing to spoil yourself for an excellent sound experience. Dolby is famous for their sound systems in theatres and cinemas, which is why this $600 priced over the ear headphones wowed us with it’s clear and powerful audio quality, and it had to be shared.
Although they are wireless, they are better suited to be enjoyed at home and you can pair up to 8 devices and can switch easily with the buttons on the right ear cup. Packed with 40mm drivers, padded with a premium looking leather material and weighing around 330 g, the Dolby Dimension headphones are surely for those who like class and luxury in their headphones. The famous Dolby Soundstage gives these headphones a clear and crisp audio output while lacking the warmth and richness of bass like the Bose one’s have.
Controlling these headphones is done through the iOS and Android app, and they come with a LifeMix feature that lets you be aware of the surroundings you are in. The right ear cup has three buttons to control volume, skip tracks and accessing the virtual assistant. But by far the most interesting feature is the head tracking that adjusts the volume in your headphones according to the position of your head in relation to the TV or device. Turn to the side, and the sound will shift to the side as well, move back and your headphones adjust to the TV.
However, these features do affect the battery life which already isn’t that good. With only 16 hours of listening time, it gets shortened to 10 hours with the tracking turned on, but it does charge fully within 2 hours, and with fast charging you can get two hours of use within 15 minutes.
That said, the Dolby Dimensions is for people who want a luxurious at home listening experience and will be happy while using it. Nonetheless, the price may be high but it still is one of the best loudest headphones to get in 2020 that won’t distort sound quality at higher volume.
