Sennheiser HD800 Headphones, bought!

I couldn’t get rid of the thought of Sennheiser HD800 after gotten poisoned by it in Japan in September 2015, tested it in Yodobashi Camera store at Shinjuku, Japan.

Finally I decided to get one for myself. I searched several places and got one ordered.

Surprisingly, I got my toy today! Took around 5 days including weekends! Really happy and excited!

The box is huge! My staff asked me what is it…and I am so happy to see it and told her that it is MINE! 😀

Carefully laying it onto the ground and start unboxing it…

Thick and huge manual…no, I didn’t open or read it…

The presentation box, made of hard cardboard.

Inside is very nice silk lining having the headphones seating carefully inside. The sponge is to protect the cable.

You can see very thick KEVLAR covered cable inside. LOVELY! The cable is replaceable, but it costs RM600+ for it. You can also see 1/4″ headphone jack used by this Sennheiser HD800, which is the BIG type as compare to most 1/8″ type used by most walkman, mobile phone, computer speakers or audio output. Not sure why they use 1/4″ jack size, maybe all professional HIFI systems are using this size of headphone output?

Serial number engraved onto the headphone. S/N: 41464. I seems to have quite a lot of connection with number 4 nowadays…hahaa…I tend to get to like this number more and more now…

Huge headphone speakers…it is an OPEN type headphones, which can be quite disturbing and loud in office space. :p

image

I still remembered when I first saw it in Japan, the first impression is…WHAT AN UGLY Headphones! The silver colour is very ugly in my opinion, as compared to some that use wood type design (personal preference). This Sennheiser HD800 headphones design is like having two speakers mounted together and attached to your head! Anyhow, I love it because of what it can deliver, the BEST SOUND and MUSIC!

3 meters length Kevlar covered cable. Thick and firm!

Simple presentation box…nothing fancy, nothing stuning.

I was testing out the headphones, then my little princess came and look for me. I let her tried it out…and asked her to let me take a few photos of her wearing the headphones. You can see how huge the headphones is! Covering the whole ear, quite comfortable for long time wearing.

image

I did asked her how’s the sound. She said noisy…too loud…

Now I am waiting for my Asus Essence STX II soundcard to arrive (should be in a few days time), then I can test the headphones more!
