Confused? Don't be, when there's a Guru to guide the way.

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. More than 60 years of ingenious headphone engineering has been applied to the new HD 800. Very few loudspeaker designs on the planet can come even close to the level of detail resolution that Sennheiser has put into these headphones. 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. It’s hard to describe a piece of gear which, upon listening, sounds different than anything you’ve heard, yet sounds so completely effortless and musical that you’re left with the singular impression that the previous way you’ve listened to music is somehow incomplete, a wrong path if you will, and that this is clearly a better way.

"I felt like I was actually present at the Walt Disney concert hall. The highs and lows sounded so unique that it was impossible not to wonder, what exactly did the engineers at Sennheiser do? The product is more than value for money and if you really want to enjoy music, do own these."

  • New Reference Class Headphones.

    The Sennheiser HD 800s sport an open, circum-aural dynamic stereo headphone design that make you feel directly connected to the music. Music emerges from silence and sounds so profound that would travel into a soundstage of amazement. Soundstage refers to being able to sense the spatial surroundings of a recording.

    Dynamic Transducer Design

    Headphones have always have had a basic physics problem when it comes to transducers. Better sound always requires a larger surface area but this also results into more distortion due to oscillation at high frequencies. Sennheiser essentially blew everyone’s mind when they showed off the Neodymium-powered two-layer ring radiator inside the HD 800. Firing at your ear in a strategic 60 degree angle to simulate free-air sound arrivals it has claimed to sport the largest diameter ever seen for such applications.


    Ring Radiator Driver

    The 56mm or 2.205" (with a 40mm voice coil) is twice the size of your average tweeter. Generally you don't encounter them until you shell out about 100 times that for the full speaker. This results into controlled oscillations, which leaves the headphones to do what headphones do best, i.e. create the best and clearest sound possible.

    Handcrafted Comfort

    The Japanese Alcantra Earcups boast of suede-like fabric material that you’ll find used for the interior of many high end automobiles and racecars. It definitely feels like an airy version of suede, as it doesn't have the heft of most leather materials. Also the fabric breathes, which is great for long listening sessions when you don’t want to have to air out your ears. Handcrafted ear pads made of high-quality microfiber fabric and the ear cups are covered with a thin metallic mesh.

    Ingenious cord

    3 meters of fabric-sheathed Kevlar-reinforced Teflon-insulated 4-strand straight OFC copper wire in a Y harness. The cable is covered with a fabric sheath, making it flexible and non-microphonic. The cable is terminated to a very substantial ¼" phono plug at one end, and two proprietary Sennheiser connectors at the earpieces. Superb cord quality allows easy optional modification for balanced/XLR headphone amps.

    Sound-stage effect with the open-back design

    Any set of headphones that give a real sense of ‘being there’ are open-backed, meaning that air and sound can come in an out of the headphones. The sound has less of a ‘laboratory feel’ this way. It’s not great for noise isolation, as people will be able to hear whatever music or movies that you’re listening to.


    Strategic weight distribution

    The headphones come in at a pretty heavy sounding 11.5 oz (or 330 grams for the metric folk), but they manage to distribute the weight evenly so that you don’t really notice the weight at all. They are large headphones, and cover even the largest of ears. But they feel light and after a two hour film you’re head won’t be sore at all.

Excellent Headphones

After reading many reviews about HD800 soundstage depth and width, when I tried out my newly arrived headphones with DSD albums of Dusty Springfield, Open your ears and Maria Callas I was in for a pleasant shock. I never could have imagined the instrument separation and clarity that I heard. My Shure SE-846 IEM and Focal Spirit classic headphones though in a league of their own, could not match these headphones.

Due to HD800 my DSD album list grew overnight. Even my old flac and mp3 albums of Indian and Western classical when heard through HD800 prompted me to listen to all of them once more.
The headphones are very light and cause no fatigue.

The only drawbacks I saw was that they need powerful amplifier. I bought a Chord Mojo to go with my Fiio X7 and the combination is excellent. Also there is a lot of sound bleeding. You cannot enjoy the music without disturbing other person in the room

Am immersive experience.

This is my second headphone following Audio technica headphones. The experience is truly a memorable one and I would recommend these headphones without a doubt. I am not an audiophile and do not even understand the finer details of sound production. The one difference that I could notice is, the clarity of sound which is sublime.

Best headphones I've ever had

Having moved on from HD 598 , the experience from unboxing to wearing the headphone was absolutely mesmerizing and worth remembering .However the power failure at my residence at that moment , didn't allow me to pair this wit my Oppo HA1 , so had to anxiously wait for the power .The build has all that premium look and needless to mention that even in the humid weather of Delhi , these headphones are indeed too comfortable to wear.
I mostly listen to the "live" performances and this morning while listening to the John Williams Celebration live music, I was made to feel as if I was actually present at the Walt Disney concert hall.The highs and lows sounded so unique that it was impossible to wonder , what exactly did the engineers at Sennheiser do ? !

I am not an audiophile but my music collection which is mainly CD ripped flac and just been adding DSD format, are just ideally suited for the combo of Oppo HA1 + HD800.Of course I have just few days back added Fiio X5 (2nd G) and all this combination has added some superb listening experiences in my life. Needless to mention that Apple music , specially the B1 radio station sound out of the world through HD 800 ( just like the B1 radio station).
