Sennheiser HD8 DJ overview

  • 1Description

The HD8 DJ Headphones from Sennheiser feature an emphasis in the mid-low end and are designed for use in live DJ applications. The HD8's ear cups can swivel up to 210°, allowing for three different wearing positions. The headphones are based on Sennheiser's HD 25 headphones and have a closed-back design to aid in isolation for reduced volume use.

Intended to provide a comfortable fit during extended sessions or performances, the HD8s include a pair of velour ear cushions and a pair of leatherette ear cushions. Two Kevlar-coated cables, one straight and one coiled, are also included and can be attached to either the left or right ear cup, allowing you to swap to your preference. The HD8s also feature metal-crafted reinforcement parts for additional stability. When not in use, the HD8 DJ headphones can be stored and transported in the included protective case.

Tuned for DJs and Producers
With some of the world's top DJs on our development team, and fitted with Sennheiser's proprietary acoustics system, the HD6 Mix headphones deliver sound reproduction tuned specifically for the DJs' and producers' needs, and varying environments, inspired by the sound signature of the HD 25
Designed for Durability
All parts of these new Sennheiser headphones are crafted for durability for years of use even in the most punishing environments and the roughest everyday studio work. So all you have to bother about is just your music
Interchangeable Ear Pads
Built for hours of comfort while performing at the decks or in the studio, the HD6 Mix features interchangeable ear pads in soft velour or leatherette, and at the same time providing outside noise attenuation thanks to their elliptical, circumaural design
Coiled and Straight Cables
Demanding DJs and producers know what a good cable is worth. That's why the HD6 Mix headphones come with exchangeable single-sided, Kevlar-coated cables made of oxygen-free copper and featuring gold-plated connectors: one coiled, one straight (both up to 3 m). They are attachable to either ear cup and are fitted with a bayonet twist for a secure connection

    Sennheiser HD8 DJ reviews

    HD8 DJ Headphones is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product After sampling most of the high end headphones at the chain tech shops, and then extensive research online, we chose to order these without having heard them. After receiving them, their sound quality is truly high end, and the construction features of this model are a match to the sound quality. Their durability, coupled with the easily replaceable cords seem to suggest we will get many years of great sound without losing their structural components.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sennheiser hd8 headphones! Top notch The build quality is top notch for sure . The sound overall is pleasing but a touch bass heavy. The higher bass levels and the lower midrange seem to be missing or at a lower level than they should be. The lower treble is the same just not quite there . You can tell they were made for the more modern music like rap and hip hop. They sound really good if you turn them up a bit too. They are fantastic for listening and DJing but not as a studio style mixing headphone. And I will be using them for that sometimes . Mostly for capturing the recording and setting levels . Hope they work out ok I have hearing damage anyway and may be missing these areas of sound anyway. Overall they are bad xxx phones

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Headphones I've had these for about a week now, and already, they're some of the best-sounding headphones ever. They're meant for live performances, but they work and sound just as well for leisure listening. Sennheiser packed their best materials into them, making sure they stay durable and hardy through their life span, which seems to be as long as you take care of them properly. Don't sleep on these!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I came across these headphones during a sale and decided to give them a try. My expectations were high, due to Sennheiser's great reputation. First off, the build quality is amazing. The headphones have very satisfying heft and the materials are top notch. Plus they look terrific. They also come with lots of accessories and a cool case. But... the sound was underwhelming to me. I'm not an audiophile by any stretch. But the sound to me feel muddy, like all the detail was getting washed out. They are bass heavy, but it seems to be at the detriment of detail. Plus the head band clamps very tightly, and the previously satisfying heft just weighed them down and they hurt my head after only about half an hour. Sound is subjective, though. But for me these were a bad fit all around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound and no audio leak I used to use Bose QC25 but those would leak audio. I still use them for voice cancellation purposes where needed but these are amazing. No audio leak whatsover. I bought a bluetooth amplifier as well to go with my phone and the combo is even better. If you are planning to use with a phone I would suggest getting an amplifier because that helps it reach its full potential. Would work without those too. You can find small amplifiers of FiiO or Earstudio, bluetooth or wired.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sennheiser HD8 DJ Probably the best headphones I have ever tried. And yet I haven't tried them to there full performance, (need a good DAC and AMP). Worth every penny and sweat to get these
