Frequency Response Measurement & Correction
The classic Sennheiser HD800 is noted for lack of deep bass and having a wickedly bright response often mistaken for high resolution detail. The low frequency response starts to roll off before 100 Hz and is -7 dB down at 20 Hz. There is broad -4 dB dip in the ears most sensitive range of 2 kHz followed by a narrow, +10 dB peak at just over 5 kHz. This +10 dB peak means that vocals and instruments in this range completely dominate the sound of these headphones.
Engaging the high-resolution convolution filter transforms these headphones from the brink of unlistenable to a highly accurate sound reproducer. -1 dB down at 20 Hz and ruler flat up to 5 kHz makes these headphones a joy to listen to.
