Headphones and Hearing Loss


My father has significant hearing loss (he's 94). He has always loved music but hasn't been listening much these days.

Could anyone recommend the best headphones for such a person?

Any thought greatly appreciated!
Maybe Sennheiser Momentum, the larger over ear models.

Very good Sennheiser sound, non fatiguing, comfortable, nice looks, easy to drive from most anything, portable, comes with nice carry case.
+1, That's what my almost deaf grandmother used to watch TV - large over ear headphones. They were low impedance providing insanely high sound levels, but it didn't bother us since it was closed back. I don't know Momentum, but many Sennheisers are high impedance (300ohm) and open back leaking sound to surroundings.
That's very helpful. I was actually considering a pair of momentum for myself. For my father, maybe these will work well too.

He'll be listening mostly to CDs on computer (no serious audiophile set up). Classical stuff, primarily. I've heard a few on audiogon saying they weren't crazy about Sennheiser, but it sounds like they may be perfect. I'll try to demo some this week to get an idea.
Sennheisers are wonderful. I had HD580 (same drivers as HD600). Very comfy with great highs and midrange (last thing you need are bass heavy headphones) but high impedance (300ohm) made it difficult to drive to very high levels. It was also open back.
