NuForce HP-800 ( Black)

 

With an understated matte-black finish and particularly large earcups, these headphones have sort of an anti-trendy design that seems geared toward audiophiles (maybe that makes it trendy). They're very comfortable and the sound is ideal for buyers...

The NuForce HP-800 headphones offer a comfortable fit and strong sound for a relatively affordable price. The model sports full-size die-cast aluminum earcups and comes with two sets of user-replaceable cables.

Portability isn't a strong suit: the HP-800 design is rather large and doesn't fold up (or fold flat). It also lacks an inline mic or phone controls.

While it's less geared to mobile use, the $150 NuForce HP-800 is one of the better-sounding full-size headphone models for the money.

NuForce is best known as a manufacturer of audiophile preamps, power amps, and digital-to-analog converters, but the company also offers a range of in-ear headphones and now its first full-size, "Monitor Class" headphones: the $149 HP-800 model.

NuForce HP-800

 

The NuForce HP-800 is an affordable, no-frills studio monitor headphone pair that offers a crisp, articulate response, but is less reliable on tracks with deep bass.

Crisp, bright frequency response ideal for genres without deep bass. Innovative headband design is secure and easy to wear for long periods. Comfortable memory foam ear pads. Replacement cable included.

Distorts on deep bass at higher volumes. Doesn't have offer much bass response at moderate volumes. No phone controls on either cable.

NuForce HP-800 headphone review

 

Can a headphone ever be too comfortable? Or too smooth sounding? These are unusual questions to consider when reviewing headphones, but that's how I felt listening to the NuForce HP-800. Maybe NuForce has achieved a near perfect balance between...

Extremely comfortable ; Reasonably priced ; Very smooth sounding

Reasonably priced headgear isn't hard to come by, but if you're looking to get great quality sound then that can add up quick. If there's one company that specializes in good sounding audio products that are reasonably priced, it's NuForce. Although...
