The Sennheiser HD 800 open-back headphones are top of the range, not just for Sennheiser, but for ALL headphones. No other brand has been able to come close to replicating the natural hearing experience, which is why What Hi Fi? magazine says the sound is, ‘quite sublime’.
Incorporating the world’s most advanced driver technology, the HD 800 stereo headphones redefine the definition of reference-level audio - courtesy of a larger-than-usual 56mm diaphragm and stainless-steel transducer. In addition, the sound is directed into your ear at an angle, so it is rather like listening to a pair of speakers in a room.
But it is not just about the sound performance, the HD 800 both look like something from the next century and have unsurpassed levels of comfort, even for those very long listening sessions. The ear pads are crafted from a high-quality microfiber fabric that is extremely comfortable and easy to maintain.
An incredible 10 year warranty comes as standard.
