Sennheiser HD 820 Headphones Push Fidelity Limits and Price

Reference class closed-back headphones feature a unique glass transducer cover that minimizes resonances

Sennheiser just announced the HD 820 closed-back headphones to accompany their companion HDV 820 amplifier for serious audiophiles. The company says these $2400 headphones ($4800 for the combo) deliver astonishingly transparent sound, thanks to a unique glass transducer cover that minimizes resonances — an innovation that ensures an incredibly realistic and natural sound field. Further adding, “They shatter expectations of what was thought possible from a closed-back model and set a new benchmark in sound quality for this type of design.”

The HD 820 boast an incredibly realistic and natural sound field. This breakthrough performance has been achieved through a special innovation: Over each of the legendary Sennheiser Ring Radiator transducers are unique glass covers. Revealing the acoustics within, the patent-pending curved Gorilla glass serves to reflect the sound waves from the rear of the transducer to two absorber chambers, which results in minimal resonance.

Manufactured in Germany, the headphones feature a robust metal headband with an inner damping element, and silver-cladded OFC cables and gold-plated plugs. Meanwhile, the ear pads have been handcrafted from high-quality non-allergic synthetic leather and microfiber to cushion and insulate the listener from ambient noise. Together, these carefully selected components and materials delight every sense while producing an unparalleled listening experience.

Sennheiser’s HDV 820 amplifier for dynamic headphones is the perfect companion to the HD 820. With its consistently symmetrical signal processing and extremely low harmonic distortion, the amplifier ensures unadulterated and perfect music enjoyment when paired with audiophile headphones. A specially tuned symmetrical, impedance matching cable with low capacitance is included with the HD 820 to guarantee seamless performance from this audiophile duo.

Both HD 820 and HDV 820 feature Pentaconn connectors — the new standard for balanced outputs. This offers a lower contact resistance than all other connections for headphones to produce minimal distortion and a more transparent sound reproduction.
