TDK ST-800 - A Good First Effort

 

Music, gaming, movie enthusiasts today demand the best possible audio performance from their gear, and the gear they often turn to are headphones. The growing enthusiasm and the number of brands entering the market to fill this void is clear. All the...

The ST-800 doesn’t succeed at knocking any reputed headphones models off their thrones. However, it is a very good attempt by TDK. When it comes to build quality, some of the high-end headphones manufacturers could learn a thing or two from TDK. When...

TDK ST800 review

 

If you can remember when Duran Duran owned Top Of The Pops and every other tape sold was a TDK, then you'll feel a pang of nostalgia at TDK's return with a line of outrageous Boomboxes and these slick headphones.

Harking back to an age of mixtapes and recording the Top 40 off the radio on a Sunday teatime, the TDK ST-800 have a heavy-handed retro feel you'll either love or loathe. Thick leather stitching, matt metal and thick plastic, the quality is spot-on....

The look may give the TDK ST-800 a dated look but the tech inside is state-of-the art. If you like your music to speak volumes but not necessary at volume then you’ll love the spacious mid-tones and rounded bass these headphones have to offer. TDK...

There is no faulting the construction of these headphones. Made from sturdy plastic and metal with real leather covering and a head strap that is big and comfortable without being restrictive, the build quality justifies the TDK asking price

Weighing in at just under 420g, these aren’t the lightest headphones out there, so better suited to home use than out on the move. The inline EQ works but we have to admit it’s something of a gimmick and we’re not convinced that simply using the tone...

The ST-800s make for the perfect, stylish lounge-room companion for kicking back and watching your favourite flick in solitude – though a few pitfalls make this enticing budget-buy take on the pro-audio headset a little less appealing.

Great sound quality; cheaper than most high-end headphones

Too bulky for portable music; poor battery life with AAA batteries

I am running a $1000 Denon SACD directly to a $500 AKG headphone amp with coax. These cans are drop dead fantastic! Who would have thought they would beat all the others I own and have listed here. I would put these up against anything that sells for...

TDK ST800 review

 

Usually you get what you pay for, but in this case, I wasn't impressed. BTW, these are not Noise Cancelling headphones. But since they go around your ears (cupping over them), and being closed back headphones, they would be considered Noise Isolating...

Good bass, fair clarity, expensive looking packaging, 4 foot extension cord, velvet-like bag for storage, 1/4" adapter, small microfiber cloth to clean, unique booster/equalizer box connected inline with the cable. Muffles outside noise. You can adjust...

These headphones are heavy! Initially they seemed fine when I put them on, but as you keep them on, you feel its weight. And your ears feel warm-hot after about 20-30 mins. To use the volume control, you have to turn on the signal booster/equalizer. I...

Remarkable sound clarity

 

I bought this headphone for a husband who is hard of hearing. It solved the problem of our needing different volume levels (watching TV). I had checked them out on the website of the manufacturer, so I expected very high quality sound.Then I tried them...
