Product Description

Sennheiser HD800S Headphones

A modern classic, Sennheisers reference class HD 800 headphones deliver sound that is as natural as possible and true in every detail. Improving on a seemingly perfect formula is not a task undertaken lightly, but Sennheisers engineers have succeeded in enhancing still further the sound reproduction in the open, circumaural HD 800 S.

The striking industrial design combines form and function seamlessly, the layered metal and plastic headband construction attenuating vibrations to the earcups while the handmade microfiber earpads offer exceptional comfort for even long periods of listening enjoyment.

Crafted for perfection, the HD 800 and the HD 800 S are precision-built in Germany from only the finest materials and components. The transducer is encased by stainless steel, while the headband and headphone mounting utilises the most advanced materials developed in the aerospace industry for high strength with minimal weight.

The new HD 800 S offers even better high precision connectivity options and is now supplied with two connection leads, a 6.3mm connector and a XLR-4 balanced cable to offer even better quality sound from sources with balanced outputs such as the Sennheiser HDVD 800 headphones amplifier.

Absorber technology of the HD 800 S

The enhanced sound reproduction of the HD 800 S is achieved through the addition of the innovative absorber technology that was pioneered in the Sennheiser IE 800 a breakthrough that preserved the audibility of very high frequency sounds by eliminating a phenomenon known as the masking effect, where the human hear struggles to hear frequencies of sound when lower frequencies of a higher volume occur at the same time. By absorbing the energy of the resonance, Sennheisers patented absorber technology prevents any unwanted peaks and allows all frequency components even the finest nuances in the music material to become audible. This innovation was a key element in making the IE 800 the worlds best sounding in ear headphone, and in the HD 800 S it helps to bring even greater purity and precision.

Such enhancements build on the formidable achievements of the classic, with the 56mm sound transducer the largest ever used in dynamic headphones. The unique ear cup design directs sound waves to the ear at a slight angle to create an impressively natural and spatial listening experience.

While much appears the same, the enhanced performance within is revealed by a distinctive new look, with the silver finish of the 2009 classic HD 800 making way for high-class matt black for the HD 800 S.

If the price invites doubts, rest assured the performance is absolutely worth it, provided your source and amplification are up to the job.

What Hi-Fi? | | October 2019

Takes the fundamental design of the HD800 and updates the details. The result is a wonderfully open and unforced quality. Potent sense of propulsive force that manages to feel powerful, yet light on its feet. Sense of airiness, startlingly vivid and believable presentation. Vocals are crisp, detailed and have an almost liquid quality to them. The Sennheiser actively encourages you to keep on cranking it up. A potent, detailed and spacious sound, this is a supremely talented headphone for home use.

Hi-Fi Choice | | August 2019

Yes, it isn't cheap and it is quite a bit more expensive than the model it replaced. That is really where criticism of the HD800S ends, though. This is an unflinchingly accurate headphone that musters a level of three dimensionality and realism that is hard to find anywhere else. It is built like a piece of lab equipment and manages to be comfortable into the bargain. This is the headphone by which all others are judged.
