Sennheiser HD 800 S

The striking industrial design combines form and function seamlessly, the layered metal and plastic headband construction attenuating vibrations to the earcups while the handmade microfiber earpads offer exceptional comfort for even long periods of listening enjoyment.

Crafted for perfection, the HD 800 and the HD 800 S are precision-built in Germany from only the finest materials and components. The transducer is encased by stainless steel, while the headband and headphone mounting utilises the most advanced materials developed in the aerospace industry for high strength with minimal weight.

The new HD 800 S offers even better high precision connectivity options and is now supplied with two connection leads, a 6.3mm connector and a XLR-4 balanced cable to offer even better quality sound from sources with balanced outputs such as the Sennheiser HDVD 800 headphones amplifier.

Absorber technology of the HD 800 S
The enhanced sound reproduction of the HD 800 S is achieved through the addition of the innovative absorber technology that was pioneered in the Sennheiser IE 800 – a breakthrough that preserved the audibility of very high frequency sounds by eliminating a phenomenon known as the “masking effect”, where the human hear struggles to hear frequencies of sound when lower frequencies of a higher volume occur at the same time. By absorbing the energy of the resonance, Sennheiser’s patented absorber technology prevents any unwanted peaks and allows all frequency components – even the finest nuances – in the music material to become audible. This innovation was a key element in making the IE 800 the world’s best sounding in ear headphone, and in the HD 800 S it helps to bring even greater purity and precision.

Such enhancements build on the formidable achievements of the classic, with the 56mm sound transducer – the largest ever used in dynamic headphones. The unique ear cup design directs sound waves to the ear at a slight angle to create an impressively natural and spatial listening experience.

While much appears the same, the enhanced performance within is revealed by a distinctive new look, with the silver finish of the 2009 classic HD 800 making way for high-class matt black for the HD 800 S.

Violectric HPA V280

The HPA V280 was developped with the target to enable ultimate transmission quality for low- , medium- and high-impedance headphones. These may also be balanced versions. Due to its specific, variable, low-noise and low-distortion circuit design especially optimised for dynamic headphones, the HPA V280 fulfils even highest demands. Like his "bigger brother" HPA V281 also HPA V280 uses the Violectric V200 amp technology to enable the typical uncolored but smooth sound signature.


Features:

  • Balanced inputs with gold-plated Neutrik XLR connectors
  • Unbalanced inputs with gold-plated ALPS RCA connectors
  • switchable unbalanced outputs with RCA connectors
  • optional digital input (USB or Coax or Optical)96 or 192 kHz
  • PRE-GAIN = switchable input gain in five steps
  • Independent-channel design
  • ALPS RK27 High-Grade volume control
  • High-Quality op-amps in the signal path
  • High-quality MKP capacitors in the signal path
  • 0.1 and 1% metal film resistors throughout the unit
  • 4 amplifiers with V200 technology
  • 1 balanced headphone output, Neutrik 4-pin, gold plated
  • 2 single ended silver-plated Neutrik headphone outputs
  • Relay-based headphone output cutoff
  • 2 large toroidal transformers
  • Large filtering capacitors in the power supply
  • Switchable ground lift
  • Rugged aluminium case with Nextel coating
  • Solid, laser-engraved aluminium front panel
