Pre-order new Sennheiser HD820 Closed-Back Flagship Headphone for $2400

If you want to be among the first to get hands ears on the all new Sennheiser HD 820 closed-back flagship headphone, pre-orders are accepted for it for $2400 at the Sennheiser website, along with the B&H Photo website. Their release estimate is early summer 2018, so pretend it’s a Massdrop offering if it will help make the wait less insufferable 🙂

The parallel HDV 820 DAC/amp has no wait, it is already in-stock and shipping at authorized dealers for $2400 as well.

This is one of many new headphones revealed at CES 2018, we are keeping track of them at our CES 2018 headphone summary. I’m adding new releases as fast as I can. This usually takes a couple of weeks of updates before it is finished 🙂 We’ve done these for most major trade shows, you can find all those posts under the New Headphones category.
