Suits You Sir! Hand Crafted Sennheiser HD800s Headphones

The original Sennheiser HD800 headphones were one of our best selling headphones, yes, even with a retail cost of £1000 the HD800 proved to be hugely popular.

Although still available, Sennheiser have upped the ante with the upgraded HD800s and has again piqued our interest in these beautiful headphones. Hand crafted in Northern Germany at Sennheiser's headquarters in Wedermark the HD800 and HD800s headphones are built using a traditional assembly line method.

The original reference HD800 use one of the largest transducers used in any headphone up to today and it shows. The Sennheisers sound involving, the bass is precise and not overbearing.
If you had to have a niggle at the original HD800 it would be that they can be very,very detailed.
I need to choose my words carefully here but maybe too revealing and not everybody's cup of tea.

The upgraded HD800s have been tweaked to help this, new absorption technology from Sennheiser that was originally used the brilliant IE800 in ear headphones is used here. The patented "asborber technology" controls conflicting peaks and troughs in the frequency helping the HD800s to sound more refined.

The music just washes over you without shouting at you, more audible if you like. Building on the original HD800's massive 56mm transducer and toed in drive units the overall experience is a pleasurable one. We like them a lot.
