…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.
