    Sennheiser HD800/HD800S Earpad Dimensions

    I'm looking for some headsets, and I realized that not many sites post the earpad size/dimensions. I did want to know this information for a few headphones, especially the Sennheiser HD800 and HD800S. This being said, would anyone have access to both the external and internal dimensions for the...

    Headphones With Best Soundstage In All Directions?

    I’ve been using an hifiman Ananda for almost two months now and enjoy the signature, imaging, and soundstage. I would describe the soundstage as vertical/tall sounding. But not a lot of action from left to right. I got to demo the HD800s yesterday for about 30 minutes and was left a bit...

    Calling all HD 800, HD 800S, and HD 8XX owners

    Hello Head-Fi! When the original HD 800 was launched in 2009, it ushered in both a sound and design that was unlike anything we had done before. We’re seeking input from owners of the open 800 family (past and present models) in the form of a quick survey. Because the questions span a few...

    Small impact on HD800, is it a problem?

    Hello everyone! I just bought a second hand (ofc) hd800, but I found a small impact on it on the left side that you can see on this photo : Do you think it might cause distortion on the sound or it's too minor to be audible? Thanks in advance!

    Gloss Black HD800 repaint

    My first time ever painting something like this, or painting in general with sprays that was serious. Lot of imperfections and things I would have done differently if I could do it again, but I re-did so many things I'd rather eat a bullet at this point - I'm happy enough with the result lol...

    Drop + Sennheiser HD8XX - now in final form

    Disclaimer: I've had good luck with many of the prior Drop headphones. Specifically the HD6XX, K7XX, Elex, HD58X, TH-X00, and most recently the Panda. All of these, in my opinion, improve upon their original/inspiration models in some way, whether that be price, performance, features (Panda) or...

    Neutral, Open Headphones between $1000-1500?

    I want to upgrade from my neutral R70x'es but all the headphones in this range are either warm, or cold, like the HD800's having high treble peaks and the Hifiman headphones being warm, etc. Anybody know a good headphone between $1000-$1500 ("almost-TOTL" tier?) that is as neutral as the R70x...

    Hi guys, I am currently using my Senn HD800 with Sony PHA-3, so far I do enjoy it. I’ve been wanting to buy something from Chord for a while due to their high reputation for extraordinary quality.
