The ear cups themselves rotate round approximately 270 levels, locking in place beneath the head band and coming all the method in which back round, sitting off-center from the scarf. The turning mechanism for the ear cups has three distinct positions for comfort, and I discovered probably the most strong at the excessive. It makes the headphones look weird, for the rationale that angles are very different, but they provide me one of the best seal round my ears. The faux leather-based ear pads are comfy for short durations, but they really feel so much higher for long run use.
They produce a powerful sound; the bass sounds deep without being distorted, the mids are clear and the highs are bright with out being overly crisp. The headphones play again music at a volume that is loud enough to be heard in membership environments, an element which is very important for skilled DJs. Well, we managed to get some extended time with them here at CES, and we’re fairly fond of them.
They held up well to the assorted tests in my workplace, blasting loud music through my audio system while cueing up other songs. I felt the music vibrating the floor before I heard too much of it. I had a monitor blasting, and I wasn’t precisely isolated from the floor audio system, however with the headphones on I was able to hear it clearly before I wanted to turn them up too loud for long-term security. We are speaking about headphones, in spite of everything, and more essential to design is sound, clearly.
The headphones may be neatly folded up and saved within the rugged black carrying case, which is large sufficient to store the additional set of ear cups and one of many cables. I’m an enormous fan of any merchandise that embrace a case, especially one like this roadworthy, sturdy Sennheiser case. The HD8 DJ is the set that we obtained to spend some time with, and the very first thing you notice is the build high quality partybos. If you have ever used the HD25s, you realize that while they’re properly constructed, the overall end is plastic. The HD8 DJ, nonetheless, is a medley of steel and polycarbonate. The ear cups are bigger than earlier than making these over-ears (compared to the 25’s on-ear), and the high-end, gentle padded finish makes them way more comfortable — good for extended use.
Yes, Sennheiser’s HD8 DJ is presently one of the best DJ headphones in the marketplace. But they aren’t exclusive to DJs as also hi-fi fanatics will find pleasure in them. If we count the beneficiant options and an impressive sound quality, the price additionally appears truthful. Two detachable cables ship with the HD8—one coiled cable, and one other straight wire cable, each of which are about three meters, or just beneath 10 toes long. Neither has phone controls or a mic, as these earphones are supposed completely for pro-use.
