"It doesn't take long to realise these headphones are something special." 'What Hi-Fi? magazine'. 5-star review.
Now better than ever, with absorber technology
The latest 'S' version of the HD800S uses an innovative absorber technology that was first pioneered in the IE800 model. By absorbing unwanted resonance, the most subtle details are clearer and the sound is less congested. Especially noticeably at high frequencies, the HD800S has better resolution than the standard model.
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.
Supplied with 4.4mm balanced cable for the ultimate connection
Another improvement with the 'S' model is the inclusion of a balanced connection cable with 4.4mm plug. Connect up to a compatible headphone amp, such as the HDV820, and you'll benefit from a fully balanced connection. This means less chance of interference and very low levels of distortion, making the sound even more detailed. A standard cable with 6.35mm plug is also supplied.
There's little point in a reference quality pair of headphones if they're uncomfortable to wear. Fortunately, the Sennheiser HD800S headphones 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 headphones are still one of the best.
Better than ever, the Sennheiser HD800S delivers reference levels of sound and comfort.
