Best set of headphones I ever owned.

Amazing hybrid

It's closed back but close to sound stage of open back like HD 800 S. The closed part gives it a heavier bass. I love Sennheiser HD 800 S and now the HD 820. Of all my collections these two are my daily drivers.

Worth in sound way more than the retail.

Amazing open stage but heavy outside isolation. My fav even more than my $4k Focal Utopia.

Superb!!

These really blew away my entire listening experience despite being an audiophile. Not only can I now completely justify my subscription to Tidal where I can fully appreciate the high fidelity uncompressed music, I can also experience movies through a headset while reminiscing about my missing kidney.
