Based on the HD 800 (Editor’s Choice award winner back in HFC 324), Sennheiser has unveiled its latest headphone, the HD 800 S. The new headphone, claims the manufacturer, has had the sound reproduction optimised through the innovative absorber tech that was introduced on the IE 800 (HFC 385). This does away with the masking effect that makes high-pitched effects difficult to hear at lower volumes. The 56mm transducer of the HD 800 also remains and the headphone comes with a 3m-long XLR4 cable. The HD 800 S is available to buy now for £1,200. Click here to find out more.
