Sennheiser HD800 Headphones + HiFi Racks Stand
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 colouration of the 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 the 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.
Chord Electronics Hugo 2 Headphone Amplifier
Chord have seen outstanding success with their compact and portable DAC/headphone amplifier the 'Hugo', and their range of audiophile micro components the 'Chordette' series are often regarded higher than similarly priced and even more expensive models on the market today; despite their compact sound.
Chord's original Hugo set the benchmark not only for high-resolution portable audio but also for stand-alone DAC technology as a whole, a reputation they have been able to uphold with this single product without fail for a number of years. Taking 2017 by storm, Chord have launched a newly revised and improved successor to what was already a superlative product, appropriately dubbed the Hugo 2.
As digital technology has advanced, Chord has kept up to speed. The new Hugo is designed and engineered primarily around this next-generation digital tech, including state of the art FPGAs and WTA (Watts Transient Aligned) filters, while also seeing the integration of a variety of flexible new features and functions. The Hugo 2 remains an ideal solution for the digital audio enthusiast both on the move and at home.
Hugo 2 has four digital inputs in total, catering for optical, coaxial and HD USB sources as well as extended-range aptX lossless Bluetooth for wirelessly streaming directly to the Hugo 2. Capable of high-resolution playback up to 768kHz and up to DSD512 (Octa DSD) from its HD USB input, the Hugo 2 is also ideal for those listeners who appreciate music via desktop from a PC. Outputs of the Hugo 2 include 2 x RCA, 3.5mm and 6.35mm headphone outputs.
The Hugo 2 allows for sound filtration too, via a four-function switch that effectively allows you to shape the frequency being played. This means that you are able to cater the sound to your personal requirements and preferences, whether you prefer a warmer sound or a more clinical, transparent listening experience. The Hugo 2's colour-coded buttons represent information regarding the device's status including control power, input, filtering and the unit's crossfeed options.
The Hugo will play uninterrupted for around seven hours from a full charge and features two auto-charge modes via Micro USB. An indicator shows you the charging and battery-charge status of your Hugo 2.
