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 - For the audiophile with deep, deep pockets

thinkdigit.com
8 April 2011
  • Summary: The HD 800 is a delight, a ticket to a stratospheric stereo experience - fairly neutral, with maybe a smidgeon more emphasis on the highs than the lows, and will woo you with tonal accuracy and soundstage rather than cheap (read boomy) thrills. However, given the rather astronomical price tag, and the fact that like most passive speakers, they need an amp and a quality source before they begin to justify their asking price, to say they're not for most people would be the...
  • Pros: Excellent sounding and very resolving, Comfortable to wear - important for this grade of headphone, Detachable cable eases aftermarket cable mods, Is surprisingly forgiving on mediocre sources
  • Cons: Requires good amplification, Will not sound its best without a high quality source, Did we mention they're uber expensive?

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.

Sennheiser HD800 Headphones

Tech2
25 July 2010
  • 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.
