PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A NEW DROP + SENNHEISER FLAGSHIP

The HD 8XX is based on the HD 800S; a flagship audiophile headphone produced by our partners at Sennheiser. Like the HD 800S, the HD 8XX is made in Germany at Sennheiser’s HQ factory. Based on community requests, we worked with Sennheiser to tune the housing resonance to add low end extension, while we adjusted the driver damping to create midrange balance and reveal treble detail. Introducing the Drop + Sennheiser HD 8XX: class-leading headphones with a revised tuning, signature Drop color accents, and unrivaled performance.

NEW TUNING WITH AN EXCLUSIVE COLORWAY

Introduced with the 800 Series, Sennheiser's ring-radiator drivers are a groundbreaking innovation in headphone performance. Unlike the traditional dynamic driver, which moves a conical dome to create sound, the ring-radiator driver uses a ring diaphragm attached at its inner and outer surfaces. This dramatically increases stability, radiates sound uniformly, and eliminates cone breakup. With these drivers, the HD 800 was an undeniable step forward—but many audiophiles felt that it had too much treble and not enough low-end response. Sennheiser responded with the re-tuned HD 800S, and using that as a base, we worked with Sennheiser to further balance the midrange and extend the bass response. With a new resonator system and driver materials, The HD 8XX has a balanced upper midrange and sub-bass that extends to 10hz. Completing the package, the HD 8XX is finished with signature Drop midnight blue accents.
