  • Conclusion: Sennheiser does it again, upping the sound and build quality from its legendary HD 650 cans to deliver a majestic sonic experience that has to be heard to be believed. However, you’ll need a great system to extract the full £1000 of value from them.
  • Pros: One day, hopefully far into the future, you’ll have your TV turned up to 11 just to hear the weather forecast, modern music will seem like just a lot of noise, and mashed up bananas will be your favourite pre-nap snack. Until then, treat your ears with the respect they deserve: stainless steel open ear cups, Teflon-coated connectors, a massive 56mm diaphragm and minimal harmonic distortion. The HD 800s sound like music itself, magically beamed into your brain through ...
  • Cons: Whenever marketing spiel mentions an historic inventor, you know you’re looking at a price-tag fit to induce a touch of something equally old-fashioned: the ague, falling sickness or possibly even consumption. Sennheiser wheels out Thomas Edison who, apparently, dreamt of reproducing the human voice exactly as it came from the person himself, and music as though the very instruments were in front of you. Kerching! That’ll be a grand, please.

Sennheiser HD800 Headphones

  • 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

Sennheiser HD800 Review

Digitaltrends
25 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Replete with premium components, proprietary technology and several industry firsts, Sennheiser’s HD800 headphones easily earn their place amongst the very best ever made. Retailing at just under $1400.00 though, the cover charge for this listening party is a little steep. However, if you want a jaw-droppingly amazing personal audio experience, these cans deliver and then some. Let’s get this out of the way right off the bat: The HD800 headphones are BIG.
  • Pros: Exceptional Sound, High Quality Construction Extremely comfortable for long term use
  • Cons: Not easily portable, Ambient noise is easily audible No 1/8" adapter for use with portable audio devices

Rockin' Headphones: The Christmas Gift Of Isolation

  • Summary: If you know your audio, you probably own a pair of Sennheiser’s legendary HD 600 headphones , and consider them to be the best half-grand you’ve ever spent. If you know your audio and didn’t notice the recession, you’re going to think nothing of spending $1,400 for the sonic revelation promised by the company’s newly minted HD 800s.
