Sennheiser announced three new products at CES 2018 and they surely weren’t aiming low with any of these. one of the three is an audiophile class closed-back headphones with a price tag of 2,399$, the others are the first soundbar ever made by Sennheiser and an In-Ear wireless headphones.
The Sennheiser HD 820: A one-of-a-kind closed-back headphone
These headphones are basically a closed-back version of the famous 800 S that was released a couple of ears ago. And with that big change, the HD 820 kept the same design elements as the previous, keeping the inner architecture visible through a Gorilla-Glass closing.
The glass barricade standing between your ears and the outer world isn’t just for show, it’s made with a special curving technique to minimize resonance and reflecting it to absorption chambers inside the ear cup. This makes it “the most transparent-sounding closed-back headphones in the world” as Axel Grell, Sennheiser’s longtime chief headphones engineer would like to put it.

The headphones also offer ear pads made from a mix of synthetic leather and microfiber different than the older S 800. The headphones also use 4.4mm Pentaconn balanced connections instead of the usual 3.5 mm audio plugs, which is said to give balanced audio for minimal distortion.
Depending on where you’re buying these bad boys from, you’ll be paying 2,399, whether we’re talking about USD or EUR. You can pre-order the headphones and check the full specs here.
The Ambeo 3D soundbar: A new comer to the Ambeo product line
