Sennheiser HD800s

Sennheiser HD800s is an improved flagship, over ear, open back headphone in a black finish, includes both a 3m cable w/ 1/4" and 3m cable with 4.4mm terminations and has a slightly tweaked sound vs the HD800, to provide a warmer (fuller) sub bass response and smoother treble response. 

The 300 ohm headphones work well with a variety of amps we carry, including the Burson and new iFi Neo, Signature and Diablo. With the smoother sound and less tendency towards a bightness, the HD800s gives more consistently pleasing results with a wider variety of amps. The HD800s build on the HD800's ability to provide one of, if not the best, open, wide soundstage, giving music a natural, spacious feeling, as well as a very balanced frequency response and enormous amounts of detail.

HD800s have very spacious earcups yet excellent ergonomics, fitting close to the head, little clamping force and a light weight compared to other top of the line models. Tip - Wearing glasses does not effect the sound much at all - there isn't much of a seal, so the earpads can sit on your glasses' arms without changing the sound much.

Headphone Bar Sennheiser HD800s Review
Old love, but upgraded!

I have had the original HD800 when it first came out. The current HD800s beats it, and have all its lightweights!

Everything you'd expect!

These are outstanding headphones as you would expect based on the positive reviews on the web and they do not disappoint. I have gone through quite a number of headphones, other open back designs like the HD600 but mainly closed back - Fostex, B&W, NAD, and Aeon Flow. These beat them all. Also I would like to add that you won't find a better source for them than the Headphone Bar, their customer service is unmatched in my experience!
