Sennheiser has a history full of pioneering ideas and technically outstanding products. Although their engineers and acousticians have often pushed existing technology to the limit, their passion as developers makes us push beyond these boundaries time and time again.And with the Sennheiser HD 800, Sennheiser has achieved another quantum leap in headphone technology. The fact that individual components of the headphones are covered by no less than three patents is the best proof of their joy in innovation, which you will experience as the purest sound with the Sennheiser HD 800. And if you add up the miles that their developers walked, drove, and flew to find the highest quality materials for manufacturing the headphones, you’ll find that they’ve been around the world three times.
Crafted for perfection — that was the challenging goal Sennheiser set for the Sennheiser HD 800. You’ll hear that they’ve achieved it. Enjoy the very highest standard of sound.
The harmonic distortion of the Sennheiser HD 800 headphone is so low that you might be tempted to turn the volume up too high. You get the best sound results if you listen in the medium volume range. For optimal sound, we recommend you also use a headphone amplifier.
A New Dimension in Sound
Perfect surround sound based on precision. Sound waves channeled to our ears at a realistic angle ensure a sound as natural as the one generated by correctly positioned loud speaker systems. At the
same time, headphones should remain completely neutral while transmitting sound. Thanks to its innovative design, the Sennheiser HD 800 meets this requirement. The unique mix of materials achieves authentic sound reproduction that impresses even the most demanding listener.
Premiering a new mix of materials
For producing the Sennheiser HD 800, they vested in an innovative combination of materials that mark a global breakthrough in headphone technology and design. All synthetic components are made of materials that are used, for example, in aeronautical engineering as a substitute for high-strength metals.The ear cup and baffle are molded into a single component with an exclusively finished stainless steel weave as the hallmark of its sophistication.
Care and Maintenance with a Concept
Sennheiser’s concept of consistent and highly developed simplicity for the Sennheiser HD 800 also characterizes how to care for it. All externally visible surfaces of the headphones can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Removable parts are treated separately and reattached easily. Spend more time listening — less time cleaning.
