Sennheiser HD 800
Decades of experience in innovative headphone technology and design have resulted in the creation of the HD800 flagship headphones in Sennheiser's audiophile range. With the largest and most advanced drivers of any headphone on the market, together with cutting edge design, the HD800 set new standards in high-fidelity listening.
A new benchmark for headphone performance
Large dynamic 56mm drivers produce high-fidelity audio with minimal resonance. Encased in precision engineered stainless steel and positioned at an angle, the transducers simulate a spatial and natural hearing experience. Matching the reference-grade audio performance of the HD800 is their striking and contemporary industrial design. The premium four-wire, high-performance symmetrical copper cable has been specially designed to match impedance for a natural hearing experience. High precision connectors feature Teflon insulation and a superior build to enhance durability.
Adopting the most advanced developments from the aerospace industry, the metal headband and mountings of the HD800 exhibit damping elements that eliminate vibrations for a smooth listening experience. Equipped with special hand-crafted earpads made of soft microfibre make the HD800 comfortable to wear, even for extended periods of time.
Crafted for perfection.
