Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The Sennheiser HD 820 are comfortable, sound good and have a low latency wired connection. They block a bit more noise and do not leak as much as the HD 800 S so you can use them in more varied office environments. Some audiophiles will appreciate the deeper bass of the HD 820 and the relatively large soundstage for a closed-back design.
