Product Description

Take control of the club with Sennheiser’s top-of-the-line DJ model - HD8 DJ. Designed for the most demanding users and punishing pro environments, they have been developed in conjunction with some of the world’s top DJs. Acoustically, they are inspired by the legendary HD 25 and deliver an excellent sound reproduction, focusing on the rhythm and beat matching which professionals need.

Constructed of premium metal-crafted reinforcement parts, the HD8 DJ are built to deliver night after night. Its iconic metal pivot rings allows the user to swivel the ear cups up to 210° for easy one-ear monitoring at the turntable. What’s more, the soft, durable ear cushions ensure a comfortable fit even after hours of use and virtually eliminate background noise so that nothing comes between you and the music.

The HD8 DJ is a serious tool for those who take performance seriously.


  • Crafted from durable, high quality metal parts to guarantee years of use

  • Excellent sound reproduction across the audible range thanks to Sennheiser’s proprietary acoustics system

  • Elliptical, circumaural design for maximum comfort and reduces background noise to a minimum in even the loudest of listening environments.

  • Capable of very loud, high SPL suitable for loud DJ environments, but high noise isolation mitigates the need to max out the volume for safer listening

  • Swiveling ear cups (up to 210°, both ear cups) with three wearing positions

  • 95 ohm impedance for optimum compatibility with DJ equipment

  • Single-sided coiled cable can be attached to either ear cup; straight cable included (both up to 3m)

  • Comes with a premium protective case

  • Two year warranty

My Personal Tops
First off, to address a common complaint I've read in reviews. Yes, from new these phones can be a little tight, to distraction. But I say persevere, after some use they ease off somewhat. Not to the point they get loose, but not overly tight, maintaining a good amout of fimness (read security). I like these so much I'm on my second set. They take everything I can throw at them without complaint. Clear sweet highs with no harshness, and good strong bass without overdriving. Being enclosed I expect them to block background noise. To me they take this to a new level, very close to proper ear defenders. I use them in the studio as well as live performances, and I even plug them into my phone for personal time. They perform everywhere. The only con with them comes as expected. They are a very attractive piece of kit, in price as well as quality. This makes them very attractive to those who can't afford them or just want to sell them. Hence my second pair.

Great cans!
Very sturdy construction, built like a tank. Fantastic sound and noise isolation (not cancelling). Grips the head very tight, which is good when you are bouncing around a DJ booth as they won't fly off. The pressure of the grip can get a bit tiring if you are just using them for general listening, get them for DJ'ing as a premium tool for the job. Comes with high quality accessories, great case, extra ear pads and straight cable.

Great product!
I am very new to Sennheiser products but know all my other DJ colleagues use them so decided to take a leap of faith and so glad I did. They are exceptional. Very well built, brilliant sound quality and range. Very useful case and great to see you have the ability to chose cable you need for the event and equipment!

First Class Sennheiser product.
Well,what can I say. A beautiful piece of engineering. I've used the HD25's for 15 plus years,and there was never any other serious contender,in my opinion,to challenge their performance. I came across the ad for the new range by chance,and after checking the specs,I knew I had to get the HD8's. Absolutely stunning in looks,quality and sound. I'm not going to bore you,I don't have to. If you are in the market for new phones,want the best ,nothing else will touch these. You will not be disappointed with any aspect of these amazing can's. Do yourself and your ears a favour,get them now.
