Sennheiser HD800 – The reference

The Sennheiser HD800 and the latter HD800S are the top models from the German brand, if you don’t take in to account the Sennheiser Orpheus. Wide sound stage, good comfort, great build and amazing sound once properly driven, that made this headphone a best-seller. The only drawback ? The (very) open design, which forces you to use it in a very silent room.… Read the full article

Picture Sunday – Sennheiser HD598 – For the love of wood

By | September 22nd, 2018|Categories: Headfonia|Tags: , , , , , |

Today we look at the good old Sennheiser HD598, a good and affordable headphone loved by many of you.
