…It’s Things Thursday: Sennheiser HD 800?

Sennheiser HD 800

When Sennheiser says that they have redefined what reference-level audio is all about, you better believe them.

That’s because their new HD 800 headphones, which are the result of Sennheiser’s 60+ years of headphone engineering, utilize their most advanced driver technology ever produced, creating open, circum-aural dynamic stereo headphones that “will form an altogether new height of sonic perspective as you experience a high-fidelity natural hearing experience”.

With a price tag of nearly $1,400, you better believe there’s also going to be plenty of audio mumbo-jumbo involved that you’ll probably never notice when plugging them in to the receiving end of an iPhone.

Premium parts have gone into their production – the transducer is encased by a precision material made of stainless steel; ear pads are made of special high-quality Japanese Alcantara; while the headband and headphone mounting utilizes the most advanced development from the aerospace industry. In terms of connectivity, these headphones utilize specially designed, four-wire, high-performance connections with Teflon insulation.

Plug them into a high dollar audio system however, and the 56mm drivers, vibration reducing stainless steel gauze and silver-plated, low-oxygen copper wires that are shielded from electromagnetic interference will come together to produce a staggering frequency response of 6 to 51,000Hz.

If you simply can’t have anything but the best, than look no further than the Sennheiser HD 800s.

…It’s Movie Monday: Time Well Wasted?

Time Well Wasted

The “lay on the ground and film from above” style of video production is becoming more popular lately, and for good reason.

    Maybe you’ve seen this concept used before and maybe you haven’t, but you definitely haven’t seen it used this exhaustively and to such a dynamic extent and with a shirtless Geeves. Filming took up the entire month and everyone involved pulled their shit together like when you’re driving home after a few drinks and (suddenly!) you end up face to face with an Officer of the Law at a roadblock or, perhaps, the scene of your accident.

Check out this intro for the snowboard movie “Time Well Wasted” that was created by Sandbox, and see why it was recently awarded “Best Video Opener” by Future Snowboard Magazine.
