The HD800 is one of Drew's Top Headphone Picks and it sounds BEST when paired with our Black Dragon.

For the ULTIMATE in sound quality, our NEW Black Dragon HD800 Premium Headphone Cable is our top pick.

More than 60 years of ingenious headphone engineering has been applied to the Sennheiser HD 800. Incorporating Sennheiser's most advanced driver technology, these open, around-the-ear, dynamic stereo headphones redefine what reference-grade audio is all about.

The HD 800 is hand-assembled in Germany with only the finest of materials. The transducer is encased in a precision material made of stainless steel, while the headband and headphone mounting utilizes the most advanced development from the aerospace industry.

Innerfidelity Review

The HD 800 lives up to its promise with every detail: a completely new type of ring driver, delivering the best ever simulation of spatial hearing by way of a curved sonic wave front. Superlatives in so many parts combine to create an overwhelmingly rich and detailed sound experience. Designed, constructed and assembled in Germany, the HD 800 are probably the world’s first headphones ever to truly make you forget you are wearing any.
