 It only drops roughly 5-8 dB from 200-20Hz which is rather good for (semi)open dynamic headphone. That is however not what could be considered neutral. It should have gone up a few dB above flat instead from 200 HzThat is not the full story though. It would have been much easier if it where.You have to look at other factor beyond FR. Even if you EQ the D5000, LCD-2, DT880, a TWFK in-ear, Stax X flat from 20-1kHz their bass would be totally different in regards to...
Arcam irDAC is one of the most interesting DACs under 1000 as is the Concero HD. Would be interesting to see a reasonably prices pro DAC as well from for example RME.
DT880 may have been called neutral in the past but with more understanding of what's neutral in headphones it would better be caracterized as a slightly bright and and basslight headphone.
 I hear you. I wear them with a rather deep fit and over the ear though. It barely works though.Massive cable noise worn straight down and Sennheiser are selling spare tips for like 30+ euro each! Wtf.
Great work Simon and it's about time you change that avatar to something more personal!   I would love to see a new member of the family: Sennheiser IE800; The provocative and flirtatious cousin! She has a deep and snappy bottom end followed but by the most gorgeous mids that ends in a rather delicate but refined top end. The presentation is fun but can be a bit too fun for it's own good. .
I thought about trying Phils Customs but I would want my first CIEM to preferably be silicon based or perhaps the "Roxanne".He have great prices and is a nice guy to deal with. However:"Due to an overwhelming demand for our products lately, which took us by surprise (a great thank you to all old and new customers), we have decided to put a limit new orders at the moment. We have made this decision in order to make sure that our customer service is still up to high...
There is a Swedish saying; The one who wait for something special cant wait too long!
I would go with the Philips Uptown. Not sure about prices though. Good comfort, good sound for the price and a very good looking headphone.
I put all of that what you just wrote as transparent. That sense of listening to nothing but the music itself. That is subjective to some degree as well. Some persons transparent might be some other persons slightly warm or cold. I've heard too much gear being described as neutral that was on the clinical/digital/thinner and colder side of things to me that the term. The term neutrality is given out too lightly. We are just starting to figure out what neutral means in...
It seem I have to wait till February to join the 2359glenn OTL club but I'm already excited! What tubes have you HD800 owners been loving? Powerful bass, beautiful clear and warm mids and smooth and detailed highs with a deep soundstage and good imaging sounds about right... The cheaper the better is a good motto here.
