Sennheiser HD 800 Review

Ken Rockwell
31 January 2012
  • Summary: These Sennheiser HD 800 are excellent headphones for anyone who prefers a brighter, clearer rendition. They are a bit too bright for my taste, but with a few dB subtracted around 5 kc and a boost below 50 cps, I'd love them, too. Everyone's tastes differ, and I've never seen such a broad positive acceptance of any other headphone since back in the 1970s when the Koss 4AA ruled the world.

Hi-Fi Plus: Sennheiser HD 800 Headphones

AVguide
14 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Sennheiser is one of the biggest names in headphones. And yet the company’s last big move into high-grade headphone design was the Orpheus, and that’s at least 10 years old. This has left the top-end of the headphone market open to rivals, at a time when – thanks to the iPod – headphone listening became cool once again.

PLAYBACK 22: Sennheiser HD 800 Headphones

AVguide
7 July 2011
  • Excerpt: (Updated 8-1-09) Sennheiser is a bit like its German compatriots BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Sennheiser doesn’t produce the largest number of headphones or the most exotic designs, but the headphones it makes consistently start with a strong engineering foundation. When such a company ventures into the top level of headphone pricing (in this case $1399), it draws attention.

Sennheiser HD 800 Headphones Review

Mix Online
1 February 2011
  • Excerpt: The HD 800s use a patent-applied-for ring-shaped diaphragm. Headphone reviews are tricky. As these products are worn by the user, they are more “personal” than other audio gear. It’s like reviewing a pair of shoes: The feel makes a big difference in customer satisfaction. High-end headphones take it up another notch, with components made from rare materials and described in terms reserved for audiophiles.

  • Excerpt: These are the MOST expensive headphones we have done till date, trust me take a peek at the conclusion section to see just how expensive I’m talking about. But does that deter the brand from going ahead and marketing it? I guess not, as there are some of us consumers who need something like this, and chances are that a product so pricey will be really good. But how good? Lets check it out: the Sennheiser HD800.

Sennheiser HD800

  • Summary: Even at the absurd pricepoint of $1400 these headphones manage to be worth it to people who want the very best sounding headphone setup. Besides that the headphones are the best sounding set of headphones I have heard to date, by far. Everything else pales in comparison and even though the finish is a bit iffy, I would love to keep these around the den, much to my other headphones' disappointment since no one in their right mind would ever want to take these things off.
  • Pros: Sound quality, Build quality, Comfort, Sound stage, All around performance
  • Cons: Expensive, Expensive, Perhaps a tad dull looking, Fairly big, uncomfortable when on the move
