Senheiser’s target is to redefine the way we hear music and to finally reach the limits of the audiophile sound. They are aiming to do that with their new lineup at the CES 2018. Possibly their new collection, the new closed-back HD 820 headphones are the technology that will finally be able to do that.
Alex Grell, the Portfolio Management Consumer of Senheiser said:
“Usually, high-end headphones require an open-back design, which has placed limits on where you can enjoy true audiophile sound. The HD 820 is a game changer that delivers exceptional sound while insulating the listener from their environment.”
The ring radiator transducers that are being covered in curved Gorilla Glass can insulate amazingly the sound that reflects waves from the back to the two absorbing chambers. This helps to minimize resonance. The outcome of this amazing structure and quality is that you get super clear and high quality sound. The HD 820 are probably going to set the bar even higher for the sound quality of closed-back headphones.
The design of the headphones is super premium. It sports a robust metal headband with an inner damping element, silver cladded OFC cables and of course gold-plated plugs for better sound quality. The ear pads are handcrafted by synthetic leather that is of high quality alongside microfibers. The insulation that the cushions provide from the ambient noise and noise in general is out of this world.
Senheiser recommends that if you are thinking to buy the HD 820, a good addition would be to pair them with the HDV 820 amplifier to ensure that you get pure sound quality that is mostly intended for the audiophiles out there. A matching symmetrical cable is included with the headphones to make your life much easier when pairing them with the amplifier.
The amazing HD 820 headphones are going to be available to the public from mid year 2018 (not specific date has been announced yet) and their price is going to be $2,400. At the same time the amplifier is going to cost $2,100. Well, pure sound quality is expensive but is totally worth it.
