Audiophile answer: The most expensive amp that looks cool, something with tubes for warmth.   Real life answer: Whatever measures the best, eq the nasty treble peak out of the bright HD800s.
1. You can, but that is the "port" so your bass will roll off earlier 2. Better but still muddy. 3. Yes 4. The headband is plastic with a cheap piece of foam over it, However the cans are damn light and im picky. 5. Yes 6. Yes 7. Yes (They have a big midbass hump with a SLIGHT sub bass rolloff.) XB700s are the king of sub bass if you like that (I like sub bass, but less punch) 8. If you have the LPs the XB500s are less muddy. However the XB700s are considerably cleaned up...
Just to chime in with regards to the beyer 770s. If you want bass the 770 80ohm ver has considerably more than the other 770s. The 770 LE cleans up the 770s treble and bass leaving it to have less bass and treble. (still a very nice can too).
Can't argue that
Sennheiser was just fine before the HD800s, the only banking made on them is from you unfortunately. Before bashing my comments on the HD800s you should actually attend a few orchestras, learn to play an instrument and finally brush up on your EE homework.It doesn't take a rocket scientist to determine the HD800s are grossly over hyped. It's 6khz peak (seriously look at its waterfall) makes it sound like its hyper analyzing everything and not like music.Some HD800 homework...
Nice to know, I've been curious about these.
Check it's THD below 100hz, not acceptable. Also try play something with a bit of bass on them, it's rolled off too.
Disagree, have you seen its waterfall? The source(s) were fine.
I second this, the HD800s don't make music. They just hurt my ears with brightness and higher than average bass distortion.
Dt770 80ohm, spend the few extra bux and get a comfy pair that u can wear forever and sound great.
