What the Press is Saying
"The Sennheiser HD 800 S are excellent sounding headphones for critical listening. They're comfortable and have a sturdy, durable build quality but like most open back critical listening models, they're not very versatile. They're not designed for outdoors or to use casually, but plugged into an amp, they deliver an exceptional listening experience."
"The Sennheiser HD 800 S is a sterling, wonderful pair of headphones that strikes a near-perfect balance between accuracy and enjoyment."
"If sensational sound quality is your priority, these high-end headphones are worth an audition"
Sennheiser HD 800S Dynamic Open-Back Stereo Headphones (2G)
These headphones are pretty amazing, I had to buy them just so I could know how they sound and I'm not disappointed. Pros: Comfy for hours on end, clarity, realism, holographic sound, wide sound stage, clean extended treble, comes with balanced cable. Cons: The silver mesh damages easily if not careful when removing cable, some lack of bass quantity and extension compared to my other HPs. I use these primarily while working at my desk with my PC, Drop LCX+SDAC and Tidal Masters. I have also used it with a Squeezebox Touch, Schiit Bifrost, Asgard 2 and Tidal. It sounds great with both setups.
The 600 HD is an awesome headphone, I've had mine for over 20 years. The 800S brings some small changes. Better detail and certainly a slightly different soundstage. They're both superb products, I'm still deciding between the two, but I'm keeping the 800s
I was eyeing this headphone for a long time, and finally I pulled the trigger and I was glad i did as it is the best headphone tuning i have ever heard. I was worried as people kept saing that HD800S is bass light and high treble is problematic. but to my ears they turned out to be just the best tuning i could ask for. to me the bass was just perfect ! and the treble was not a problem for me at all ! just a little sibilance is somewhat noticable when lisening to a badly recorded tracks but it didn’t bother me, mids were excellent excellent ! it was so good and clear and spaciace yet intamate that i dont miss the 6xx series. Imaging is excellent and spot on with such excellent instrument seperation. soundstage is excellent too although it felt normal to me, yes bigger than 6xx and 660s but I was expecting something massive from people hyping the phone, so my point is dont listen to what people say and try for yourself, The clarity of the headphone is just amazing, I cant imagine anything higher than this level to be honest and I dont feel the need to upgrade anymore, with this I found my end-game. it performed excellent with all type of media i consume, movie watching was amazing and did not leave me wanting anything else. with anime it was a jaw dropping especially when an epic scene is accompanied with an epic soundtrack it just blow me away and give me goosebump and let me appreciate the headphone even more ! with gaming it was something else. on another level ! I only play story driven games and it performed very well and was very immersive. cant recommend them enough. and played all genres of music to satisfaction. I highly recommend this headphone and highly recommend buying from Audio46, these guys are amazing with such excellent customer service and great points system and fast next day delivery. they will make sure you are happy. Just one more thing you need to understand, comming from a HD6xx and alot of low and mid-fi headphone, dont expect a huge leap in comparison, the law of dimensioning return is very apparent here as 6xx performed excellently at its price range while hd800S did perform better but not 10x better ! so dont expect to get an equal amount of money in performance. I do care to get the last ounce of extra clarity and performance so even a 5% increase is welcome but you might not feel that way. if so never try to buy a TOTL headphones as you will be disappointed with the price to performance ratio. this is only for those that trully seek the tinest increase in performance. for me I found my end-game for everything media and music.
Great sound stage and detail. Don't waste your money try other cheaper model from Sennheiser. I have a HD650 before this one, big upgrade.
