Redefine your critical listening experience with the Sennheiser HD 800 S. Using the expertise gained from almost 75 years of creating innovations in the audio industry, this world-class headphone is engineered from the finest audio components. The end result: acoustics so immersive that your awareness dissolves into the creator’s perspective.
Let’s Get This Concert Started
Be transported to the recording environment with the Sennheiser HD 800 S. The high-performance drivers are mounted at a precise angle to guide the sound directly to the listener’s ears at the natural inflection point. This replaces sound that forms between your ears with a mesmerising soundstage. When combined with the chassis and open design, you get an experience that rivals or even exceeds loudspeaker setups—especially when room acoustics are factored in.
Put a Ring on It!
A 56mm ring radiator driver uses the air displacement caused by a large diaphragm without losing the rigidity that favourably impacts rest and response times. The inner and outer edges of the rings are secured to the driver. The 40mm voice coil is wound in-house to ensure the right shape and consistency and vibrates the diaphragm, connected to the V-shaped groove found near the centre of the ring.
Reduces Resonance for Pure Sound
An integrated frequency absorber, similar to the one found in the cutting-edge IE 800 S reduces resonance that hides details in your music. This is because achieving acoustics that’s true to the source requires the management of compounding frequency clusters that produce undesirable masking effects. The drivers have an incredible extension and when paired with the high-quality build, controls problematic lower frequency energy peaks, giving you only pure sound.
Engineered to Perfection
The magic of this Sennheiser headphone can be felt via thorough its attention to detail. Each driver is engineered and rigorously tested to give you a spectacular performance right outside the box. Every unique HD 800 S includes the frequency response plot unique to those perfectly matched transducers. The vibration-damping chassis and inert headband insert provide complete stability while the steel mesh found in the baffle is matched and integrated with consistency due to its ultra-low variance in managing sound waves.
Your Concert Perk: Max Comfort
You can now experience a concert with maximum comfort. The HD 800 S uses ultra-soft microfiber padding at every contact point for incredible comfort. It is designed to be lightweight and reduce unwanted pressure. Each earcup offers dual-axis articulation i.e. it instantly conforms to your head as soon as you put it on. The result is an extraordinary listening session that never stands in the way of your passion for high-fidelity sound reproduction.
Connections that Matter
Your preferred headphone should be versatile — perfect to suit your ever-evolving set-up. The HD 800 S comes with 3 meters (9.8 feet) cables with a variety of terminations. These include the audiophile standard 6.3mm (¼-inch) and balanced 4.4mm connectors that can seamlessly connect to audio devices like headphone amplifiers, DACs, A/V receivers and more.
