    With the announcement of the Sennheiser HDV820, there has been a bit of speculation and "leaks" over a possible successor the HD800S, the HD820...


    The HD820 has been officially announced at CES...


    Current price is set to be €2,399 in Europe and $2,399.95 in the US with its release to be sometime during the beginning summer of 2018.

    The cover material on top of the driver is made of glass. Sennheiser claims the glass cover is designed in a way to reduce resonance by redirecting the reflected sound waves into a special absorber chamber, similar to the IE800 and HD800S I'd assume.

    It comes with a new set of earpad made of if synthetic leather and microfiber. It also comes with Pentaconn connector cable too instead of just a 4 pin XLR.

    Wow! This could be legit!

    If they don't debut this weekend at the Fujiya Avic Tokyo Headphone Festival, then Sennheiser will probably debut them at the High-End Munich show on May 18th.

    If they are real, I can't wait to see what they will bring to the table.

    BTW, Change the title to ( "New Sennheiser headphone: HD820") many will think it's another HDV820 thread typo :D

    Is that possible? Not quite sure how.

    It's the new Bluetooth version with a built in media player.

    They might as well add a built in aircon/heater while they're at it!

    Edit the original post. In the old forum the title can be edited too. Haven't tested it on this one.

    Pardon my ignorance, particularly if this whole thread is tongue in cheek, but can someone explain why 820 would be the next number in the progression? I'm just curious...

    I think it's just the naming scheme Sennheiser came up with themselves. They named the DAC/Amp the HDV 820, (which is already announced) from the prior HDVD 800. The photo above is a supposed "leak".

    Please have HD650 mids with HD650 treble smoothness and HD800 bass texture. One can dream right?

    Very keen to see how different it will be from the HD800S.

    Why do I get the feeling that this is a Closed Back Flagship?
