The Sonic Journey

With over 75 years of audio innovation, the HD 800 S transcends ordinary listening experiences, setting a new benchmark for critical audio evaluation.

Following the success of its predecessor, the HD 800, we embraced the challenge to vanish from the audio chain's final link. Our aim was to craft an acoustic experience so enveloping that you become one with the music's creation. Individually, each component of the HD 800 S stands at the pinnacle of audio technology. Yet, it's the harmonious integration of these elements that forges the HD 800 S's distinctive sound.

It Has a Ring to It

This design maximizes the advantages of a large diaphragm's air
displacement while maintaining the stiffness essential for quick rest
and response. The ring's innovative attachment to both the outer and
inner edges of the transducer ensures a vibrant and dynamic sound. The
40mm voice coil, meticulously wound in-house, guarantees unparalleled
precision and consistency.

Solid as a Rock

The headphones’ vibration damping chassis and inert headband insert
provide complete stability—what you put into the HD 800 S is precisely
what you will get out of it.

Each transducer is manufactured, tested, and measured to the tightest
tolerance to ensure the most dependable performance out of the box.
Even the steel mesh found in the baffle is matched and integrated with
consistency in mind, as it contributes to ultra-low variance in the
management of travelling sound waves. Each HD 800 S includes the
frequency response plot unique to those perfectly matched transducers,
sparing no resource to help you retrieve the most critical details from
every corner of your music collection.

All the World’s a Stage

The HD 800 S features a mesmerizing soundstage that seemingly transports the listener into the recording environment.

This is the result of several key features. The drivers are mounted
at a precise angle, guiding the sound directly to the listener’s ears at
their natural inflection point. Instead of hearing a sound that forms
between your ears, you experience a vivid wash of frequencies and
sensory-stimulating transients. When finally combined, the vibration
damping chassis, perfectly matched transducer systems and wide-open
construction work in concert to provide the most striking soundstage
yet. This orientation rivals or exceeds loudspeaker setups costing
exponentially more—especially when room acoustics are factored in. The
HD 800 S offers you a personal concert hall on-demand—without waking the
neighbours.

Advanced sound reproduction system

Delivered by the high-performance transducer with incredible extension.

Achieving acoustics that are true to the source also requires
management of compounding frequency clusters that produce undesirable
masking effects. We integrated a patented frequency absorber—a principle
similar to that found in our breakthrough IE 800S—to reduce resonances
that hide extraordinary musical details in plain sight. Further, the
transducer system is mounted in a vibration damping chassis using
aerospace-grade materials. In concert with the previously mentioned
headband, the problematic energy peaks of lower frequencies are
controlled to unveil the purity your hi-fi setup is capable of.

A Technological Marvel

Using a high-performance transducer with incredible extension is just
one element of the HD 800 S and its advanced sound reproduction system.

An Ergonomic Treat

The HD 800 S delivers on long-term wearing comfort too, providing a listening experience as luxurious as it is immersive.

Every contact point utilizes ultra-soft microfiber padding, while
purpose-built composites reduce weight and unwanted pressure. Each
earcup provides dual-axis articulation—as soon as you put them on the HD
800 S will instantly and effortlessly conform to your unique structure.
The result is a remarkable listening session that never stands in the
way of your passion for hi-fidelity sound reproduction.
