Sennheiser HD820 Closed Headphones
Here's the deal: you like music, music likes to be played moderately loud, and your partner hates your Rock. Your neighbor goes to bed early, and you want to enjoy late-night tripping to cool Jazz. Furthermore, you want music to sound magical. If that is you, we've got your attention.
The critics said closed headphones could never sound as immersive as their open-air counterparts. They said physics would never allow it. To that, we simply said, “listen”. Developed in Germany, the HD 820 combines an innovative glass reflector and ring radiator transducer technology for a benchmark listening experience as vivid as it is uninterrupted
The earpads on the HD820 are plush and comfortable. After hours of listening they won't get sweaty. At 360 grams they are very light.
These are ideal for all-over use, as closed headphones do block out some external noise. Consider adding a headphone amplifier for best results.
