If you have a spare $87000 and want a reference pair of headphones, Sennheiser will happily sell you its outlandish Orpheus complete with partnering DAC/amp. It’s a superb-sounding combination, as you’d expect, but well beyond the means of all but a fortunate few.
So, in the real world, where mortgage payments and credit card bills take a hefty toll on disposable income, the recently introduced HD800S headphones are the next best thing. They’re still pricey, at £1200, but that’s a far cry from premium car money.
As the name implies, these are a development of the highly rated HD800 headphones we reviewed back in 2009. The ‘S’ version doesn’t replace the originals, sitting above them in price instead. Sennheiser is very proud of this new design judging by the magnitude of the bluster in the press release.
