Holy crap. Are they related to ORFAS?
They are the very definition of ORFAS
Dammit. For the record, the www.ORFAS.org site is not mine. Some joker created it.
I kinda figured that one.
Bob Levi is a hack that actively promotes charlatainism. One of their only sane members, Mark Waldrep, was kicked out by Bob for essentially promoting science over bullshit.
I think they (like most companies) are now aiming for the millennial/gen Y dollar, people dumb enough to wear a flagship on the subway and get robbed.
TBH you're more at risk of robbery wearing Beats or Bose than anything from Sennheiser. Nobody in the wild knows what an HD820 is.
Might not know exactly what it is but it looks expensive, just based on the size and the glass.
I'd rather wear a TIE fighter pilot helmet than an HD800 / HD820 in public.
They do have a very "imperial" look to them.
MQBHD pimps them, nuff said...
I just personally think it's not marketed to audiophiles but people after high end audio.
The same people who see the ls50 wireless as the best speaker to match with their 4k smart TV instead of a soundbar and woofer.
I even saw a Reddit post, the guy had utopias, lcd4 and loads of other totl headphones and literally said he uses them for games instead of listening to music.
They really don't care about what they hear or the music, it just apparently has good sound quality and they don't know what that means.
I think the same thing applies to the old 2 channel boomers buying anything which looked cool to them. It's just that it looks much different now than it did before.
Can somebody pull up those dumb Sennheiser marketing videos with the weird-ass guy staring at you? Those are pretty good examples of how Sennheiser perceives millennial audiophiles. It's honestly not far off the mark if you compare it with the paid impressions from millennial TechTuber shills ("wow this is the best I've experienced. Its just so crisp"- probably some dumbass shilling the HD700)
EDIT: Wow they actually pulled it. Here's the link to the thread about it where there are still some pics so you'd get the idea: https://www.superbestaudiofriends.org/index.php?threads/ie800s-is-on-the-sennheiser-website.5250/
Yeah thats definitely what I'd look like on the bus with a pair of Gorilla glass bowls strapped to my face
The only thing aging boomers are buying is more prescription drugs. And hearing aids.
It's actually cute, don't you think?
Someone took some effort...
You know I own that domain, made that mock up and pay the registrar fee so I can visit it and giggle every couple of weeks. Don't pretend you didn't know it was me
Just in case:
I like it but it doesn’t look ORFAS. This the stupid typography for that fake banner
$20 PayPal to the member, randos included, who makes the best rendition of this for ORFAS. Contest ends tomorrow 6pm Pacific Time.
You could probably get some excellent imaging with headphones the size of a TIE fighter helmet.
