What Is Not on the Box
What the brand doesn’t always tell you…
Announced in early 2016, the Sennheiser HD 800S headphones are a premium pick that Sennheiser promises will deliver an immersive listening experience.
The over-ear headphones have an open-back design, and the soft microfiber padding on its ear cups and headband is pretty hard to come across, even among the best headphones around.
The Sennheiser headphones don’t have noise canceling or an integrated microphone, but their ear cups are large, and they’re not too heavy at 0.82 pounds.
Despite its many positives, the headphones don’t support any companion app for sound adjustment or have any in-line controls. They also don’t include a drawstring bag for easy carrying (as most highly-rated over-ear headphones do).
