Frequency Response Measurement & Correction
While similar to the frequency response of the HD800, the HD800S has a bit less of the “dentist’s drill” high frequency peak at 5.25 kHz. The bass starts to roll-off at 125 Hz and is -9 dB down at 20 Hz. There is a broad dip of -4dB in then ears most sensitive range around 2 kHz. The “house sound” of the HD800S, like the HD800, is a bright, bass-light sounding headphone.
Engaging the high-resolution convolution filter transforms these headphones into a highly accurate sound reproducer without the high frequency peak drilling into one’s ears. Bass is extended to -2dB down at 20 Hz, and with the large dynamic drivers, is bass one can feel. A personal favorite here at Accurate Sound.
