The HD 800 line from Sennheiser is a benchmark for high end headphones, providing a balanced sound signature, wide soundstage, and comfortable design suitable for hours of listening. The HD 800 S is a new tuning of the original and well-loved HD 800, that comes with updated accessories. Along with the comfortable, and replaceable, earpads and headband, the HD 800 S includes both a standard 6.35mm cable as well as a new XLR balanced cable that allows the user to connect to high end balanced DAC/AMP setups like Sennheiser’s own HDV 820.

A product of extensive audio-acoustic research, the HD 800 S tunes the clinical, technically impressive HD 800 sound towards a slightly warmer bass response. This means a more musical, relaxing listen while still preserving most of the clarity of the HD 800. It is a highly detailed, balanced headphone made for the most enthusiastic of music lovers. The balanced signature of these headphones make it suitable for any genre, but the HD 800 S is particularly suited for classical or jazz where it delivers a pristine, critical listening experience.

While the HD 800 S delivers a tight and refined bass response, it is by no means a bass-heavy headphone. If you prefer a thicker, warmer sound, consider the MrSpeakers Ether Flow, and for a more intimate sound have a listen to the Audeze LCD4.

    What the HD800 lacks, the HD800S picks up. You will find the HD800S has a similar level of detail and stage but with added warmth giving it a more musical touch. The highs have been slightly toned down and the bass lifted slightly.
