Sennheiser HD820 HEADPHONES
Delivery Summer 2018
With a more than 70-year history of setting performance standards in sound, Sennheiser is once again redrawing the map with the creation of the HD 820. The new circumaural dynamic stereo headphones shatter expectations of what was thought possible from a closed-back model and set a new benchmark in sound quality for this type of design.
Sennheiser re-invents the closed-back headphone through the use of a unique glass transducer cover. This cover minimizes resonances and provides astonishing transparent sound. The glass covers are placed over each of the Ring Radiator transducers revealing the acoustics within by reflecting the sound waves from the rear of the transducer to two absorber chambers, which results in minimal resonance. This is the first set of headphones to features this curved Gorilla glass covering and the amount of research put into this patent-pending feature shows.
Manufactured in Germany, the headphones have a sturdy metal headband with an inner damping element built in. They come complete with silver-cladded OFC cables and gold-plated plugs. The ear pads use a high-quality synthetic leather outer and microfiber inner providing plenty of cushion and insulating outside noise. Overall the new hD 820 match the exceptional quality you expect from Sennheiser.
The HD820 features Pentaconn connectors for balanced outputs. These connectors will pair perfectly with the HDV 820.
Sennheiser expects the HD 820 to be available this summer (2018)
