To be showcased at CES in Las Vegas this week is Sennheiser‘s new HD 820 headphones. The German audio company is further redefining the limits of audiophile sound with style, as this new closed-back dynamic stereo headphones is defined by a unique glass transducer cover that minimizes resonances — ensuring an incredibly realistic and natural sound field.

Comprised of a robust metal headband with an inner damping element, and silver-cladded OFC cables with gold-plated plugs, the ear pads have been handcrafted from high-quality non-allergic synthetic leather and microfiber to cushion and insulate the listener from ambient noise.

Axel Grell, Portfolio Management Consumer at Sennheiser shared, “Usually, high-end headphones require an open-back design, which has placed limits on where you can enjoy true audiophile sound. The HD 820 is a game changer that delivers exceptional sound while insulating the listener from their environment. I consider them to be the most transparent-sounding closed-back headphones in the world.”

Availability for this new HD 820 will begin early summer 2018 for $2,399.95 USD.
