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.

True to the source materialReview by FLT
It's all been said before about the 800; accurate to a fault, a touch of treble brightness, detailed but not bass-head style bass, midrange detail is uncannily real at times, bass and treble quality are extremely source dependent, there is no more comfortable wearing, over / around the ear, headphone anywhere, ruthlessly reveals the quality of the recording.

The Black Dragon substitute HP cable for the 800 will provide a touch more air on bottom. Still evaluating, but is a keeper and for me, a baseline against which to compare all comers. I have not had a listen to the 800S as yet. (Posted on 8/17/2016)
Exactly how the artist recorded it in the studio!Review by Jeff
Incredible accuracy. A soundstage as wide as the Grand Canyon. Absolutely no veil to the music. Vocals are so crisp and clean, it's as if you are standing right next to artist. The nuances you pick up in Adele's voice really make you appreciate just what an amazing instrument she has.

Like others have done, I purchased a Moon Audio Black Dragon V2 cable for the HD800's, and it took a fantastic product to even greater heights. It instantly improved the low end presence and extension and trimmed off the slightly bright nature of the HD800's. They are simply perfect now! (Posted on 7/27/2012)
