There’s has always been a debate between electronic reproduction and natural sound.

The Sennheiser HD-800 is the headphone that has been specifically engineered in replicating the basic acoustic conditions of natural hearing. This level of performance has yet to be matched by any competitor.

The HD-800 is the ultimate headphone to deliver nature. 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, circum-aural 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. Premium parts have gone into their production – the transducer is encased by a precision material made of stainless steel; ear pads are made of special high-quality Japanese Alcantara; while the headband and headphone mounting utilizes the most advanced development from the aerospace industry. In terms of connectivity, these headphones utilize specially designed, four-wire, high-performance connections with Teflon insulation.

These headphones have been developed to provide the closest match to “being there” than any other available headphone. The Sennheiser HD-800 is for the discriminating audiophile seeking the best and most natural sound available.

From rich bass lows to definitive highs, the Sennheiser HD-800 headphones deliver the exclusive sound that nature had intended.

A New Standard is Born For a number of years the standard among many in the price vs performance was the HD 600’s, edged out slightly by the 650’s. Even today a pair of these high quality headphones represent some of the best money one can spend compared to the return in performance.Currently there are a number of great headphones out there in the $300 range (Shure SE530’s, Beyerdynamic DT 880’s, AKG 701/702’s, Dennons AH-D2000) which all offer a similar level of performance that the above mentioned models deliver. So now the choice on most counts comes down to a matter of taste and want each individual cares to have with their primary headphones. With all these great choices out there why would anyone in the right mind spend over $1300 on a pair of cans, is what most regular people are going to say?1) Ability to produce a sound stage. These headphones have this in spades.This has to be one of the best strengths that I have encountered with these headphones. One of…

Effortless, powerful, and supremely musical; one of the best! SHORT VERSION:The Sennheiser HD800 sets a new metric against which every other serious headphone or transducer must be judged. I’ve heard too many “breakthroughs” that just couldn’t deliver the goods. This product is different.It’s hard to describe a piece of gear which, upon first listen, sounds different than anything you’ve heard, yet sounds so completely effortless and musical that you’re left with the singular impression that the previous way you’ve listened to music is somehow incomplete, a wrong path if you will, and that this is clearly a better way.I can’t imagine anyone buying these and not being thrilled. They are a rare product indeed — one that adds a significant new dimension to recordings you may have owned for years and thought you knew.LONG-WINDED VERSION:First some background. Music is very important to me; I played the cello for many years, currently sing in a gospel choir, and now do my own audio recordings of…

Dream the music I am not a golden ear audiophile. I don’t know what it means to hear “the air between the strings” and other such audiophile descriptions. More power to those that can — I am simply not able to do so. I do however know that music is and always has been my greatest entertainment, and that as I have grown older, my ability to pay higher dollar for my equipment has also grown. No way could I have had these headphones in past times. No way could I have justified their cost. Other priorities would have always taken precedence over these. But now that I can afford them, I still debated and agonized over the cost, but in the end decided I would go for them. Am I glad? Absolutely. They are without question the best sounding headphones I have ever heard. I could hear the difference straight out of the box, I did not even do “A to B” comparisons to know how good they sounded. I did do comparisons with my HD600 to HS650 upgrade and was never sure I heard much difference. Not so with the…
