What the box contains

sennheiser-hd800-s

These headphones weight 5.7 pounds while being shipped but 5.3 when they are unpacked. Inside the box, you will find the cleverly designed and made headphones which combine plastics and metal to ensure that they are not only strong but comfortable. The ear cups are nothing but exceptional and they ensure at directing the sound waves towards the ears at a calculated angle. This helps you to hear sound in a most natural setting which is both spatial and enjoyable listening experience.

Also in the box, you will find two connecting cables with single ended ¼ inch and also balanced with XLR. The manufacturer of these headphones worked hard to ensure that accuracy comes to near balance with enjoyment. This is made possible by the ideal synchronization of all the components of the headphones. The main difference between the original Sennheiser HD800 and the ‘S’ edition is the innovative absorber technology which preserves the ability of very high-frequency sounds by removing the masking effect. The masking effect often comes about when the human ear tries to hear sounds of lower frequencies when they are playing together with high-frequency sounds.

Features of the Sennheiser HD800 S

With a price tag of around $1,700, you are guaranteed to acquire the new HD800 S headphones. These headphones are attributed with the great feature of being the best when it comes to serving non discolored music. This means that the song you listen to will be as close as possible to the original production as possible.  Some audiophiles have taken a step to improve the sweetness of the music that their pair of headphones gives.

With the HD800 S headphones, you will now be able to enjoy cozier, warmer and softer music which is unlike what the HD800 headphones were able to offer. The new headphones have actually moved away from the predecessor by redesigning the headband both in color and look from silver to firmer black.

The headphones come with broad ear cups which are commensurate with wide ear pads. The ear pads are made from extra soft material and they cover the ears perfectly. Much as the pads are cozy to the ears, they can be a bit irritating for a person who doesn’t like having anything touching their cheeks. More one pads; they are handmade and they cannot be removed.

The one feature which makes the Sennheiser stand out is the way it never obscures the originality of music especially the complex ones. No matter the diversity of a song, these headphones will bombard you with all the instruments and drums hence making you have a thrilling feeling of being in a concert or at the production house.
