Whether creating music or moving crowds: The three new headphones deliver excellent, dynamic sound reproduction with the highest levels of external noise attenuation. The durable materials, exceptional build-quality and unrivalled product support make these the headphones of choice for professionals.

 

Designed for the most demanding users and punishing pro environments, they have been developed in conjunction with some of the world’s top DJs, among them Bob Sinclar, Luciano, Andy Baxter, Missill and Davina. Naturally, the best sound quality tops their list of demands: the new headphones deliver excellent, dynamic sound reproduction, inspired by the legendary HD 25.

 

“Drawing on our success based around the HD 25 and extensive experience in high-end audio, the DJ range applies Sennheiser’s proprietary acoustic system to answer the needs of different performing and production applications”, says Ivan Kuan, Head of Product Management, Sennheiser Consumer Electronics. The HD8 DJ is dedicated to the needs of professional DJs with truly excellent sound reproduction, while the HD7 DJ offers an engaging, dynamic sound that’s perfect for playing live. Both delivering a mid-low end emphasis, the sound remains tight and never overwhelms, with clarity retained in the high frequencies. Meanwhile, the HD6 MIX, a model aimed primarily at studio-based music creation, delivers a balanced, accurate sound for mixing and monitoring work. “To hear every detail, the elliptical, circumaural ear cups were specially designed to ensure a perfect fit for more users. This provides excellent external noise attenuation that can cope with very high sound pressure levels for safer listening without turning up the volume excessively,” continues Ivan Kuan. 

 

The DJ headphone range is built for complete user comfort for hours at the decks, in the studio or performing. The elliptical shape of the ear cups also avoids pinching the ears and is enhanced by interchangeable ear pads for comfortable listening during long periods of use. For hassle-free one-ear monitoring, both DJ models feature swivelling ear cups with up to 210° of movement and three different wearing positions. With both coiled and straight 3m high-performance cables included that can connect to either ear cup, these headphones can adapt to suit any individual preference. A bayonet twist lock makes for secure connection to the headphones.

 

All three models are built to withstand the rigours of daily studio work and a life on the road. Sennheiser has engineered the range from durable, high-quality materials to take even the roughest everyday professional use, proven through rigorous and extended quality tests. And when the life on the road pushes the limits too far, Sennheiser’s new headphones offer replaceable parts and a peerless commitment to customer service with at least five years’ parts availability guarantee even after end-of-life, and global support for quick replacements, wherever the work takes you.

 

Really excited about these. Cancelled my plans to order a new pair of cans which I shall not mention for the time being. They're going to be available by the end of this month but pricing information is unknown atm. What do you guys think?

I wonder if these use the same driver as the HD25 or the Amperior. I hope these are more than just a circumaural version of those.

I also read somewhere else that these will have the options for velour earpads.

I disagree with the cheap looking part. What do you mean by "non-modular"?

Every part of the hd25 and Amperior are replaceable.However I do not think that sennheiser makes available the drivers for the Amperior or the casing, but the drivers for the hd25 will fit. Nothing beats the Amperior/hd25
