REPORT SUMMARY AND FINAL THOUGHTS
Although we have included a few amusing pictures to demonstrate the comfort of the Sennheiser HD-8 DJ headphones, we believe these headphones are the best you will find for their intended audience. As always, Sennheiser has looked well past the industry standard and ventured outside the box with the placement and fit of the HD-8 DJ’s. You will even find ‘L’ and ‘R’ stamped inside either cup and, as funny as it really is, you will find yourself checking for the first while. Make no mistake though, the build and sound of these headphones practically guarantee we will be seeing them just as long as the HD-25’s.
Pricing for the HD8 DJ can be found at Amazon for $389.99 and they have a solid 5/5 rating. These headphones are by no means cheap but, then again, you won’t be replacing them anytime soon. They will last what you might normally have expected for 2-3 sets. For those considering this purchase, remember of course that these are over-ear headphones, one cannot simply switch off cabling for that of a shorter length for your smart phone and day-to-day use (HINT! HINT!), and of course that once you give these babies a true chance, you won’t be taking them off anytime soon. Having said that, we should mention that ALL headsets get an extensive burn-in before final evaluation. Quite frankly, we have never seen Diesel so relaxed for so long!
The Sennheiser HD-8 DJ Professional Headphones have definitely earned Our Editor’s Choice Award!
