Sennheiser HD800s

Sennheiser HD800s flagship headphones. HD800s over ear, open back is an industry reference of excellence. One of the best headphones on the market to use in the studio as a reference and wonderful for home use to enjoy a huge variety of music types. Black finish, includes both a 3m cable w/ 1/4" and 3m cable with 4.4mm terminations. (If your amp has XLR, add a Sendy/ Sivga 4.4 - XLR adaptor in accessories section- works like a charm!).

You will be missing out on what they are capable of if they are plugged into an integrated amp or receiver. The 300 ohm headphones work well with a variety of amps we carry, including the Burson, Fiio K9 Pro, Fiio Q7 and Shanling H7 dacs. HD800s gives incredible results with a wide variety of high quality headphone amps. The HD800s 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.

Sennheiser HD800s have very spacious earcups and excellent ergonomics, fitting close to the head, little clamping force and a light weight compared to other top of the line models. These are perfect for wearing long hours at a time. Drivers are a unique design, a huge 56mm ring radiator mounted at an angle to improve the soundstage.

Sennheiser HD800s review:

Whathifi.com: 5 Stars :Although many people will have doubts about spending so much money on a pair of headphones, if sound quality is your main priority, then you should consider that you’d need to spend around 10 times as much on speakers to get anywhere near the Sennheisers’ insight and resolution.

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.

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!
