The Sennheiser HD 800 is a direct counterpoint to years of maturity process of Grado. Whose life began in German Wedemark with the proverbial blank sheet paper.

- Data sheet
Developer’s Axel GRELL – whose name never to premature conclusions about the sound in his headphones creations should convince – came looking for a possible low-resonance, at the same time level – and bass-enabled driver, which should make all previous dynamic Sennheisers far into the shadows. The result is a huge headphones conditions 56 mm membrane, which is powered by a no less oversized 40 mm voice coil and works effectively as a ring radiator. The monster driver in an also redesigned shell with plastic frame is embedded. The visible between the braces, reminiscent of silver nylon fabric actually consists of very thin stainless steel wires and has a precisely defined acoustic filter effect.
Noble also acting like velvety suede material of the ear cushions, the stainless steel U-bolt with eingelaserter serial number and the precision contacts for the cable that strong tensile disengage and survive the leadership as a result. As headphones worker who, catches such as the calibration of turntables, with almost “dinner for one” sticky regularity in the own cable, the author cannot enough commend such practice.
The danger, the relatively heavy with 360 grams listener from head break, would be minimal, however, also with fixed cable, since the HD 800 bombproof sits. Without pressing, sees itself, but with mechanism, rich border around the ear.
Although the back side of the driver are open to the outside and also ambient sound emitted largely unhindered inside, an interesting effect adjusts itself in setting up the receiver, is reinforced, as soon as the first bars music can be heard: the perceived acoustics is bone dry, “reminiscent of a soundproof Studio cabin”, as Mr Malte Ruhnke aptly noted.
Which is not to say that the HD 800 muffled sounds – on the contrary: the equivalent big band, which accompanied Joni Mitchell, went up to the rearmost ranks, until in the last end of the Schagzeugbecken, without – figuratively speaking – tight together eyes. By the aforementioned ghost tenor about away over howling police sirens in “The wolves” by Bon Iver (odd for this reason because the plate in a log cabin in the Canadian wilderness to be recorded), up to the shadowy traces of Stéphane Grappelli violin sheet music, perished in the course of the production of “Wish you were Here” supposedly completely in the synthesizer-wind – the information was simply there and fell to the HD-800 carrier without any effort.
Of course, you can hear music with the Sennheiser well beyond pop-historical evidence simply excellent. The HD 800 is reaching deep into the bass and precise, incorruptible neutral, perfectly well-balanced without being intrusive, the perfect intersection of Studio acoustic microscope and Wohzimmer – food. Where the sense of space clear monitor character is characterized: the instruments are staggered but very clean and precise in their contours, the virtual stage building but up in the head – not before, and not around.
Another important Tip: both listeners should be used for optimum sound quality on a possible high-quality headphone amplifier. AUDIO tried extensively both handset with four of these specialists. Despite the electrically very different drives of two listeners the following preferences in both cases were equal.
