    Sennheiser HDV 820 reviews

    HDV 820 Digital Headphones Amplifier is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding!!! Space, detail, dynamics and abundant of power...the Sennheiser HDV 820 has it all. I use it mostly with the new HD820 headphones, however It will make all your headphones sound better. I re-cabled my HD650, Sony MDR-Z7, Shure SRH 1540 and Audio Technica ATH-R70x to balanced cables. All had improved sound stage, detail and impact. The Sony MDR-Z7 were transformed! If you can afford it, but it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing DAC/AMP Sennheiser does it again. Amazing connectivity and sound quality. Only thing close to it or better is the Sony Signature Series desktop one. But the Sony one has much less connectivity. Works incredibly with my HD 800 S and HD 820 especially.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WoW!! The best all rounder You cannot find anyone who would not be thrilled at the performance of such an amazing Amp/DAC with tons in input and output options. They could easily charge $4000 for it and it still be worth it. In one word: Love it!
