Designed as a reference standard from the off, the Sennheiser HD800 headphones are for those who simply don't want to compromise on sound.

The largest transducers for class-leading dynamics

Contained within these large headphones are, unsurprisingly, the largest speaker transducers that are commercially available. The innovative design of these speakers gives a dynamic response and bass depth that's almost impossible to reproduce with smaller designs. Furthermore, the stainless steel housings ensure a highly rigid and robust chamber, enhancing the neutrality of these headphones still further.

Open-backed angled earcups
It's not just the transducers that set these headphones apart, it's their entire design. The open-back design gives an open and spacious sound for a true 'out of the head' listening experience. The design of the earcups themselves is angled to direct sound straight to the ear; giving greater precision and resolution of the most subtle details. Impedance-matched cable with precision connectors and low capacitance further aids ultra low levels of distortion.

Comfortable too
There's little point in a reference quality pair of headphones if they're uncomfortable to wear. Fortunately, the Sennheiser HD800s are anything but. The large earcups naturally fit around your ears and are lined with microfiber fabric for cool, sweat-free contact. The metal headband features an inner damping element and generous padding for comfort right around your head. In short, if it's comfort you seek, the HD800s are simply one of the best.

For reference sound and comfort, the Sennheiser HD800 is simply the best there is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sennheiser HD800 headphone So I am a musician with a good ear for detail in music. I wanted a pair of reference headphones that was as neutral as possible. I tested grado's (excellent driver but nowhere near as comfy as the HD800), the HD800S (too boomy in the lows for my ears), the AKG812 pro's (almost as good as the HD800's - a little brighter in the trebles and not as much presence and definition in the lows as well as a smaller soundstage), the Oppo PM1's (probably equal on sound quality, not quite as comfy and not open-back so not the same soundstage again). The pros and cons say it all really - an amazing set of headphones which you can wear for hours. A tiny peak at 6 kHz which you can EQ out if you even notice! Clarity across the whole range of frequencies and I will be enjoying these for many years to come.
