The new standard in premium headphones, the HD 800 from Sennheiser, offers an extraordinarily brilliant sound image and stunning spatiality. Their dynamic, completely open-back design combines innovative technology with carefully selected materials and the pinnacle of German workmanship. The result is a level of performance, quality and attention to detail that is clearly audible.
More than 60 years of ingenious headphone engineering has been applied into the new HD 800. Incorporating Sennheiser’s most advanced driver technology, these open, circumaural dynamic stereo headphones redefine what reference-level audio is all about. You will form an altogether new height of sonic perspective as you experience a high-fidelity natural hearing experience. Do take note that presently, no other manufacturer has been able to come up as close as the HD 800 in replicating the basic acoustic conditions of natural hearing.
Matching these headphones' reference-grade audio performance is their striking and visually effective industrial design. Premium parts have gone into their production - the transducer is encased by a precision material made of stainless steel. The ear pads are handcrafted from a high-quality microfiber fabric. This material is extremely comfortable to wear and easy to maintain. The headband and headphone mounting utilises the most advanced development from the aerospace industry. In terms of connectivity, these headphones utilise specially-designed, four-wire, high-performance connections with Teflon insulation.
It took a leap of faith to lay so much down on one pair of cans. I was not disappointed, they sounded fabulous right out of the box. Amazingly the HD800's got even better with prolonged listening. Super comfortable, I did six hours straight without any problems. Make sure you have a decent headphone amplifier as you won't get the best performance otherwise. Highly recommended.
