Sennheiser Announces HD 820 Headphones with Gorilla Glass
Ron Perillo / 4 months ago
While Gorilla Glass is commonly known for phone and laptop screens, it has now found its way on Sennheiser‘s latest HD 820 headphones. The HD 820 is a closed back headphone targetting the high-end market. It actually looks like an open back on first glance. That is until you realize that the Gorilla glass side provides a full view of the inner workings. The view from the side clearly shows the large Ring Radiator transducers. It takes the term “transparent-sounding” to a whole new level. The company describes the HD 820’s sound as vivid, transparent and natural. It has a wide sound field and goes beyond what one would expect from a closed circumaural headphone.
The entire headphone weighs 360 grams without the cable. The connector is actually a 4.4 mm Pentaconn stereo jack plug and it also comes with an XLR-4 connector cable. The ear coupling goes around the ear and cables are impedance-matching with low capacitance. The headphone also features handcrafted ear pads providing attention to detail required for high-end products. The headband also has a metal frame with an inner damping element. This results in comfortable listening that sits as naturally as the sound coming out of it.
