Limited Time Offer - Get Free FedEx 2nd Day Air Shipping

For more than 60 years, Sennheiser has been designing and building the world's reference headphones. Their designs are the most natural sounding headphones; ones that transport the listener directly into the studio with the artists they love. For the last 5 years, Sennheiser engineers have been pushing the envelope of headphone design and the fruit of their labor has finally arrived: The Sennhieser HD-800. Not an improvement to the designs of the past, an entirely new construct in terms of personal headphone listening.

"The HD800 is ruthlessly revealing, but somehow still seems to make the best of whatever redeeming features a recording possesses."
– Richard Black, Tech Radar

These open-back, circum-aural, dynamic stereo headphones come closer to the natural, acoustic image of live music then any other headphone design. The new Sennheiser HD-800 incorporates Sennheiser's most advanced driver technology with premium parts including the largest transducer ever designed. The HD-800s are encased by precision stainless steel, combined with advanced aerospace industry materials and ear pads made from a special, very comfortable material. These headphones also include a newly upgraded connector cable which utilizes a specially-designed, four-wire, high-performance cable with Teflon insulation. To top it off, these 'phones are incredibly comfortable; a pleasure wear for hours on end!

The biggest design advance in the HD800s is the specially developed ring transducer. They spent the last couple of years developing this new ring transducer which manages to deliver wide bandwidth, incredible extension at both frequency extremes and more detail retrieval than you ever before heard. These drivers are angled at your ears to give these ‘phones the sonic appearance and psycho-acoustic cues of loudspeakers perfectly set up in front of you. The bottom line: You must hear these headphones for yourself to experience what they can do for you and your recordings. We guarantee you will absolutely sit spell bound by this pair of headphones… the Sennheiser HD800s are truly a revelation!

For a Limited-Time, we are offering FREE FedEx 2nd DAY Air Shipping on any pre-orders for the Sennheiser HD-800s. Be the first on your block to spend time with the world's most technically advanced headphones. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed!

“Hi-fi writing is often filled with hyperbole, but sometimes that hyperbole reads like understatement to the reviewer because the product is so damn good. That's how good the HD800 is – I could wax lyrical to life threatening levels, with sickening prose about how wonderful this headphone is, and not even scratch the surface. These products don't come along that often and you can now add the Sennheiser HD800 to the list. As it stands, the Sennheiser HD800 leaves us with a very bold claim to make: This headphone could be your next $40,000 loudspeaker!”
– Alan Sircom, HiFi+
