"The HD 800 is ruthlessly revealing, but somehow still seems to make the
best of whatever redeeming features a recording possesses."
– Richard Black, Tech Radar
The biggest design advance in HD 800 is the specially developed ring transducer. It delivers wide bandwidth, incredible extension at both frequency extremes, and more detail retrieval. These drivers are angled at your ears to
give these 'phones the sonic appearance and psycho-acoustic cues of
loudspeakers 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.
HD 800 is 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 and a pleasure wear for hours on end!
“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 HD 800 is. I could wax
lyrical to life-threatening levels, with sickening prose about how
wonderful this headphone is, and not even scratch the surface. ...As it stands, the Sennheiser HD 800 leaves us with a
very bold claim to make: This headphone could be your next $40,000
