Frequency Response Measurement & Correction

Sennheiser HD800 frequency

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.

    I have to say, it turns these headphones into the best overall package out of any pair that I’ve owned. That list includes the LCD-X, HD600, SR-1A, Utopia, and the DCA Stealth’s.

    In terms of weight and comfort they are great. Super light and open with tons of room for my ears. And the tonality with the filters is amazing. They really do sound just like my speakers in terms of tonality. It’s almost spooky how close they get. I had forgotten how good bass can be on dynamic headphones as well. They don’t vibrate your whole body like speakers can, but they do a very good job of vibrating your ears.

    It’s also very interesting how the filters correct the headphone imaging and soundstage. I have found a good crossfeed, like Goodhertz Canopener, to be beneficial in the past, but I find it completely unnecessary now.

    Fantastic filterset. The HD800 is truly the perfect headphone when it comes to detail, stage and comfort. Now with these filters you can have perfect tonality too!
