Wow, yes they are that good. Pricey but if you can swing it well worth the cost. Especially when purchased on sale.

I ordered these from Crutchfield as soon as they were in stock, and after an extended period of daily use, I can now say I really love and enjoy these headphones. The bring a solid and detailed soundstage to all genres of music I have tried the with. From jazz, rock, pop and classical, these cans bring the spaciousness Sennheiser headphones are known for, but with added bass and slam that really brings the music home. I also own the Sennheiser 800S, and going back and forth between the two, I prefer the 820 on most of the music I own, but I would never part with the 800S either, both are superb. I'm driving these cans with the Sennheiser HDV820 headphone amp, which was designed to match both the 800S and the HD820. The system is a sonic match made from heaven!
Pros: Superb, wide soundstage, loads of acoustic detail and deep bass response.
