    To HD 800 or not to HD 800, that is the question!   (2 Answers)

    I only listen to music on my iPhone 6s and have been very drawn to the HD 800 from all of the reviews on their sound quality. However, from what I can tell, the HD 800s are not REALLY made for use with an iPhone and really need an amplified type of system. I'm looking for the BEST of the BEST to use with my iPhone. if the HD 800s are not them, THEN WHAT IS????

      These headphones would qualify for a deferred interest financing option if you already have, or apply and get approved for, a BestBuy Citibank credit card. Go to you local store or check on this website to apply.

        You will be wanting for more. Your phone does not produce the necessary amperage to power these. If you are not looking to purchase a good quality DAC then don't waste your money on these cans. Look into a Sony dac first, start with the pha-3 then go from there.

          Answer

          Hello, Thank you for your question. The HD800 is quite a bit different. The main difference is they require a dedicated headphone amplifier in order for them to achieve full potential in sound reproduction. They need a higher impedance match and power which only some amps can provide. Sennheiser recently launched it;s own amp line to provide this solution as well. When powered correctly, the HD800 becomes the most transparent reference headphone available. A very flat frequency response allows you to hear the minor details in music or other sound sources that are normally colored by most headphones by putting more emphasis on bass or highs. The HD800 remains neutral and you hear the music as it was meant to be when recorded. Compared to the A50, the HD800 does not include a microphone so communicating during game play is not available through the headphone. Sound performance wise, again when powered correctly, is a much higher quality output. Let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks
