Sennheiser 800 Series headphones were created with a singular goal: The pursuit of perfect sound. The HD 800 S redefines the audiophile listening experience. It’s capable of breaking down the barrier between audio recording and playback equipment connecting the listener directly to an artist’s original performance. In doing this, the power of emotion is delivered through music.
The patented Ring Radiator transducer is central to the exceptional performance of the HD 800 S. This innovative 56 millimeter diameter driver is the largest used in dynamic headphones. The 40 millimeter aluminum voice coil is driven by a 42 millimeter magnet structure. The transducers diaphragm has two contact points (instead of one used in traditional drivers), at the inside and outside of the ring. Greater surface area coupled with enhanced control of two contact points deliver truly exceptional performance.
The open back design architecture contributes to exceptional clarity, detail and dynamics.
Angling the transducers forward of the listener ears helps deliver a wide and open spatial presentation unlike any other headphone.
Sennheiser’s patented absorber technology absorbs unwanted resonance energy smoothing high frequency response while enhancing low frequency extension to deliver an exceptional musical presentation.
