Sennheiser HD 800 Reference Dynamic Headphone
  • Great headphones! Very light weight, incredible open sound stage. Audio quality is a 5.

What customers say about "Features"
AKG N90Q Reference Class Auto-Calibrating Noise Cancelling Headphones - Black
  • Outstanding sound clarity and dynamics, especially for a closed headphone.
  • They sound fantastic. Their built in DAC and amp do the rest, creating crisp sound and an ample soundstage.
  • The sound cleared, and I could hear the good things that these headphones can do, sometimes extraordinarily well.
  • Sound has smallish soundstage and is a bit on the thin side.
  • White noise especially when plugging with the 3.5mm cable. Sound quality with the 3,5mm cable is worse than the akg n60nc.
Sennheiser HD 800 Reference Dynamic Headphone
  • The HD800 has solid construction, no question about it. They're made to last, and resist chipping, scratching, and bending.
  • The sound is wide open, unlike the 600s or 650s, and manage to allow you to get swallowed into a large, detailed, but never aggressive, soundstage.
  • Bass is tuneful, but not overdone. Mids are open and spacious, not warm, not closed in, not shouty. Highs are pristine, crystal clear, extended, and effortless in their extension.
  • These headphones are amazing. They are very comfortable. The most comfortable headphones I have ever worn.
  • Truly high fidelity sound. Balance is good. Very clear. Because I’ am violinist, the playback is quite real. I give it 5 stars and an A+.
