Into the great wide open

Made in Germany, the HD 820 stands apart because of it’s extraordinary attention to detail: From the extra comfortable handcrafted ear pads that insulate the listener from ambient noise, to the silver coated OFC cables and gold-plated plugs, to the robust metal headband with an inner damping element. 
The sound field of the HD 820 is wide open: can explore and rediscover your music in absolute reference-class quality without intruding on the aural comfort zone of others. The HD 820 not only opens up the sound field, but it also creates new places and opportunities for you to enjoy your music. 

Into the great wide open

The sound: Making great headphones show all their class

In a category of its own, the HDV 820 will deliver - virtually anything - to your headphones. The different timbres of two otherwise identical instruments, the distance between the musicians of an orchestra, the tension before a singer delivers the first note. It is all there, for you to discover through its world class sound.
