  • Summary: The HD 800 are highly regarded cans. I have listened to mine for hours and hours and never fatigue. They give me everything my speakers do. BUT, they are 300 imp, so be SURE to have a decent source. If you don't you will miss the bass and life of the headphones.

As good as new

  • Summary: I got the refurb model and they look brand new. As for sound quality, there's no difference between this an a new one. There's already so much said about these cans already. Worth the price.
  • Pros: Looks awesome. Sounds awesome. Amazing sound stage. Fits my large ears, with glasses on as well!
  • Cons: Didn't come with the 1/4 jack converter. Which you would expect when paying the premium price.

Excellent Detail - Great Value - Cool Sound - 4.5 star

JRMNorth, Crutchfield
25 February 2014
  • Summary: HD800s are well reviewed and well regarded headphones. They are very detailed, particularly the highs, but also very detailed bass and mids. The highs are prominent, with the mids a bit recessed (at least compared to the Audeze LCD-2s I have).
  • Pros: Detail, Detail, Detail! Comfortable - light weight and just the right clamping pressure for me. Strong Highs.
  • Cons: Lack of warmth to vocals. A little sibilance with hot recordings.

Sennheiser HD 800 review

JoshepDanial, CNET
21 January 2014
  • Summary: I think its features get you right in the rut. It is truly for the one who has a refined taste and understands the language of sound. What I like most about it is its fine materials, high fidelity sound, special transducer and the natural soundscape that it creates.
  • Pros: This one's a hard nut to crack. Simply brilliant stuff. Offers a very clear sound. Never had a better pair of over the ear headphones to work around with.
  • Cons: A little too big for those with a small frame. The price gives you a big blow and the sound makes up for it. But again, very expensive.

I love Sennheiser but...

  • Summary: I've always admired the Sennheiser brand products for their well-made construction and sound qualities. These headphones are no exception to the rule. The sound is amazing! I own a set of HD650s and HDR220s; the HD800s blow them out of the water. So what's the problem you ask.
  • Pros: Sound quality Well-made construction
  • Cons: Cost Comfort Fit

Some very serious soundages from this crown of a headphone

gr, Crutchfield
6 January 2014
  • Summary: I'm new to this niche market. I spoke to 3 advisers in the past month since my purchase. Each was impartial, objective, patient, knowledgeable and ultimately correct . I ended up purchasing the AK100 and the SennHD650, SennHD800 & Grado GS100i- I chose to keep just the 800's.
  • Pros: My enjoyment for listening to music has just become exponentially more enjoyable. Unmatched in customer service and folks who offer excellent opinions in earnest. Quick shipping, easy to return items. Just a well run outfit it seems from all corners
  • Cons: Slightly heavier than the Grados, & Senn does not offer a short cable if you want to take these poratble, you must go to a custom shop for that.

Mine came with some minor scratches :(

  • Summary: I would rate this HP 5 star purely based on the sound quality. Coming from HD650, sound quality is noticeably better but highs are a bit too harsh for my taste. Build quality wise, mine came with some minor scratches upon arrival. They are refurbished, can't complain.

The Most Sensational of many High-End Phones

outthere, Crutchfield
3 July 2013
  • Summary: These cans have the widest, deepest, most three-dimensional soundstage I have ever experienced. No other headphones I have heard come close. Among the high-end 'phones I evaluated, the one other rare (though not unique--HD-500s also produce this effect) characteristic is the ability to render the...
  • Pros: Sound stage. Detail resolution. Accuracy (be prepared to hear things in familiar recordings you never knew were there). An immersive, thrilling experience.
  • Cons: A little short on bass reach (note: seems to be improving with use). Styling. Depending on the mix, sometimes mid-range can be less than satisfying.
