Sennheiser HD 820 circumaural closed back headphone

Sennheiser HD 820

This is only going to effect a small percentage of the prospective market for the Sennheiser HD 820. The rest are people who want an absolute top-flight open-backed headphone and ran into a shared living space issue. You can’t listen to HD 800 in the same room as someone else because they pump so much sound into the room, it’s like having a pair of small speakers tied to your ears. Sennheiser’s HD 820 gives you a surprising amount of the HD 800 S sound, but without all the leaking. You can listen to the BBC Proms with all the detail and edge-of-the-seat excitement they bring, all the while sitting next to someone quietly knitting and watching Midsomer Murderson TV.
