Sennheiser HD800 - 10 Year UK Warranty
The Sennheiser HD800 are a very high quality, stereo pair of headphones which deliver very lifelike stereo sound, making them one of the best performing headphones on the UK market today at their price. The Sennheiser audio engineers have taken a lot of time researching and designing this product to make it the finest sounding headphone for music lovers.
The most important component is the ring radiator - a normal dynamic headphone has a coil driving a cone, a large part of which is unsupported and can therefore flex, creating degradation in the sound quality. In this design, the unsupported middle of the cone has been removed, however to keep the radiating area sufficient, the diameter is increased. Because the ring driver is much better supported than a conventional driver, it does not suffer from the distortion and coloration of sound of a normal headphone - A patent covers the ring driver technology such is its importance to the design of the HD800. The second important feature is the baffle - most conventional headphones have a flat baffle, this headphone has a patented curved baffle to prevent any resonances occurring in the capsule - this makes the capsule very fast, it is driven by a large 40mm voice coil which gives a very accurate, low distortion headphone.
To get an 'out of head ' sound image experience, the capsules have been positioned on an angle, so that the sound entering your ears is the same angle as if it were coming from loudspeakers, so you get a much more out of head experience with a very wide soundstage. The third patented feature is in the headband itself, which is of sandwich construction to prevent sounds from one capsule polluting the sound of the other capsule. Your music will be rendered so clearly by this Sennheiser design, you will be astonished, they allow you to hear the musical performance as if you were actually at the live performance or recording.
You will want to continue listening hour after all due to the natural, neutral sound quality. Once you have heard these headphones, you will feel that you can't live without them, they are that good.
Don't forget that these headphones will perform even better if used with a dedicated headphone amplifier such as models from Graham Slee, Creek and Lehmann audio.
Sennheiser HDVD800 Headphone Amplifier
The new HDVD800 headphone amplifier from Sennheiser is designed to be the perfect compliment the company's high-end, audiophile headphone products, specifically the HD800, HD700 and IE800. The amplifier is constructed from a solid aluminium casework, utilises symmetrical circuitry and has the best quality electronic components within. The analogue equivalent of this machine is called the HDVA600, and is available from Hifi Gear. Both amplifiers are considered 'true soundraisers' by Sennheiser and are implemented to perfection.
This gives the HDVD800 an exceptional, and transparent sound quality. Digital and analogue sources are catered for within the amplifier, the digital sources can be connected simply using either an AES/EBU balanced connection, an optical toslink, coaxal or a USB. The DAC sections emply a 24bit 192kHz Burr Brown DACs for excellent sound quality.
