$2400 headphone and no external dac. Sheeesh...
*_It bleeds because it's an Open Back_*
Too bad these sound much worse than anything in their competition, even the hd800s, oh well
cant go wrong with Sennheisers
2 thousand something and no noise cancellation is like buying a V12 ferrari that runs like a toyota
Now try them with Apple Hi Res Lossless
only problem with the HD820 is that they sound like shit
I would do anything to get a pair of these
Old m8 Senny at it again
No giveway man ?
Does anyone else notice the slight channel imbalance in the audio of this video? The voice is not perfectly centred. It is slightly panned to the left
I just got DT770 pro 250ohm headphones and I realized this video's audio has not been balanced properly. The left channel is slightly louder than the right channel. In any of my other headphones, I never realized this channel imbalance. Now I can't un-listen these channel imbalance audio sources.
For reference, I have Audio Technica ATH M50x, Sennheiser HD 598, Yamaha HS5 and Sony MDR WH-1000XM3. None of these other headphones reveal as much in a track as the DT 770 Pro 250 ohms.
2400 is now reduced to 1800 Euros 👍
Listening to vinyl with these defeats the purpose
And the funny thing is is that these sound like garbage, I feel sorry for whoever wasted their money on these
I bought "NANO CAR" instead of this shit
ok I bought a Prius
60 000$ headset?!?!!
The downside of an open back is under power low end base
Don’t have these YET, but they are on my radar and are locked on and I have tone! I do have the HD700 and HD600s already. Can’t afford the HE1s! Not happy!
Can you imagine listening to vinyl on these? 🤯
Apparently among audiophiles they sound like crap. And are way too expensive. That’s but from me through
Sultan mesti punya......gak punya ( not sultan) don play play
Just bought a pair, cant wait
I bought a pair of these just for running.
Dekoni elite hybrid ear pads would probably fix the isolation issue and definitely fix sound I knew they had a cheap out on something at least it was the past and not the build quality or the sound I like the longer reviews
Just bought my pair. Excited is an understatement. I apprediate the honestly on it's weaknesses.
Cost $195 to manufacture...
Should i get this as an upgrade to my HD598s
commenting so you get recommended more
Wow 2000, are they nuts, yes that's last year but still expensive I rather get the Focal Celeste for 900 if I'm will to go high..
I don't understand why you keep choosing to evaluate two different kinds of headphones. Open-backed is not closed backed. Planer is not Dynamic. 2000.00 is not 500.00. I don't mind you trashing the Sennheisers...that's okay with me but don't compare them to open-backed or the 800s. It seems disingenuous to compare apples and oranges yet you do it ball the time. I'm here to find out about the headphones so I can choose to buy or not. I'm not here to kiss your ass about production values of your videos. I want a true video on the sound and build of these and many other headphones. Also, why would you leave the house with a 2000.00 pair of headphones? Seems stupid to me. These were obviously designed for home listening not on a bus or at work. You never take a 2400.00 pair of headphones out of the house unless it's on fire.
You should directly tell this to MKHD. He saying is worth every penny. I tried myself and it really sucks. Mid range is almost non-existence like you mention. Next time I could trust you for audio tips but still i have to listen in person.
Wow I just listened to the HD820 2 hours ago in a store and your review confirms everything I heard. I’m new to headphones and was trying out every pair on the demo section. This pair sounds so open, the sound stage was so wide that it sounded unnatural. And for some songs the male vocal just disappeared. These 2 things were the ones that stood out for me and you just confirmed it wasn’t just in my head.
I tried HD820 at experience center and it's the worst headphone i've ever heard. Combined with HDV820 it's lifeless. Now i understand why you place it F tier near trashcan in your top headphones list.
Get portapro it's more hi-fi than this.
Maybe it's just need the hdv 800 amp
For gaming, what would you recommend pairing this headphone with? I have a crazy idea of having this with my PS5, but having a hard time finding the perfect AMP and DAC.
Plastic ? Wtf ?!
Seems stupid to comment on how much sound they block out. A headphone like this would not be used outside of the home. It is too fragile and is way too expensive to say, ride the bus.
great review 👍
now, we can all agree, these got two beautiful plexiglass pieces to see the drivers
Was thinking of getting these for long flights with my Fiio M15 and obviously what appear to close back Hd800s appeared to be a good choice but now I’m not so sure. Any other recommendations?
I would rather have Focal Elegia actually
Hey Brandon, if you use APO/Peace, you can lower the pre amplifying up top to prevent clipping (as you can see down below at the peak volume meter). It might allow you to play with the EQ a bit more before it starts to deform the sound.
Was is 3500 back then? It is 4800 USD on their website
Youtube unsubscribed me 2 times, I just noticed that again.
You gotta up your audiophile headphone review game.
на какой микрофон записан данный обзор и какой предусилитель если есть
You are so rich dude😭😭😭😭😭
HD820 sound like youve stuck your head under water , they are good IF EQ'd
heavily though 2500 bucks to heavily EQ lmao , asides thats they are one of the worse things theyve put out
HD800 are FAR superior lol , as for being flat they are analytical far from flat , and they are track dependant more a set of headphones for select music / gaming , but certainly not a main source
The Sennheiser amps are okish with them but tbh they do colour and the output impendence is just meh
HD820 does sound as good as Beyerdynamic T5 or Focal Elegia tbh.
Honestly, the true question to be asked when it comes to these is “what kind of music or audio are your running through them?”, since that ultimately matters even more than the formats they’re in, the DAC, and just about every other external element.
Personally, the only content I’d ever bother running through them if I had them is full Orchestra works , or just anything with more than at least 10 instruments in it, nothing else (particularly what’s playing in the SL portion) is worth it IMO.
Can you do a detailed video about your audio setup?
For those looking for value and mostly play games, ad700x's + sonarworks give you a similar experience for a hell of a lot less. They aren't as detailed but they certainly don't lack detail, have an amazing soundstage + imaging, and the 10k spike and bass lightness can be fixed with sonarworks EQ. Just sayin. If you absolutely want to pay 600+ dollars for a top tier headphone similar to these, go with some used hd800's (regular) and do the SDR mod and sonarworks eq, then you can call it done. Anything beyond that is just throwing your money away.
yo Brandon I really wanted the model o but they don't ship it to my country d you know any way I can get one that is real . I heard about forward service but I never used one so I'm not sure if I want to use it if you can help it will be very nice
Omfg rip your bank
Should review those New logitech G pro X wireless "Gamer" headphones. I hear they are a decent replacement for say Steeleseries wireless or even the HyperX cloud series.
Can you do video about the best fingertip mice??
whens the hati s review coming out?
Wait just asking where do you get your cool mouse mats
I have a dream, BT will pin or heart my comment...
2:45 BT: tightened his watch to stop blod flow
I DONT KNOW WHAT TO SAY
Massdrop Deal - http://dro.ps/unboxtherapy58x
I’ve learnt to only buy what I need not what people call best, because in a few months they’ll be saying the next thing is the best. NOT KNOCKING the headphone just giving advice to people.
Meh sony wh-1000xm4 is better
Audio ???....Sony always the winner
I just tested the hd820 with hdv820. I really like the snap of the mid range. The low end is nice and revealing.
The top end was nice.. nothing to surprising.. But imo it was missing sound stage. I would be quite disappointed if I purchased this package.
Those headphones, 1800$, 31 points, razer blackshark v2 pro, 93 points, 179$. Clearly not the best.
sennheisser orpheus is coming
i have senhheiser hd 203
The open backs are great for self recording musicians!
Are you stupid mate? Did you hit your fucking head? These are nice cans but lightyears away from the best money can buy.
nah, the hd 650 is better then this treble boosted crap
Wait til u see the stax
that's a big ass headphones and.... pricey,
Send one to India it will be great experience in gaming 😍
All the rich people got them wow. The only normal one was the black guy.
Hd 820 are ass vs hd 800s
The only music that necessitates material like this is full orchestra music with the best acoustics, if you’re not using it for that then you need to return these.
Pfft only 2500 where are the 3 million dollar headphones
I highly doubt this, and the reason why is because the don't use the ts parameters and box designing software to modle a perfect enclosure for the speaker and they don't design a passive crossover for them 🤣 your paying for the name
