Nothing 30 seconds worth of EQ can't fix. Boost bass from 20 Hz to 100 Hz and reduce the 6K peak. If you have an amp that can put out some real power and have a clear but smooth treble the HD800 can now produce amazing punchy and physical bass and a treble that don't bother you unless the source material really stinks.After trying out a bunch of good DACs they really provide minuscule benefit between each other compared to a program like TB Isone that takes the HD800 to...
We just went up to 33%.
How can you have missed the cake content?! This is just from one thread and small selection of the cake content. Follow the comments...

This is the problem with head-fi.32% of the content on this site is about eating cake, 10% is about what you did during the day, 30% is about hyping a headphone you never heard, 9% is about making jokes that don't make any sense, 0,9% is about complaining about shipping and finally if you look in some threads 0,1% is about talking about how gear sound.The missing 18% is deleted by moderators.
I have a few of these monster receivers but the somewhat 'lowly' Yamaha CR-620 play extraordinarily well with the HD800. Super clear, precise and natural without a hint of harshness. Great tip for someone who don't want to pay an arm an a leg for a HD800 amp. I am using EQ and TB Isone as well however which really transform these headphones to make it the best headphone experience I had in a long a*s time. If you have the HD800 you need to try TB Isone.
I'm not so sure R&D will give closed back an edge over open back when it comes to sound alone.  The really good closed backs like R10 and LCD-XC sound open but can they ever sound as open as a HD800? And unless you want to use some smart DSP the cup size need to be on the larger side, so not really something everybody would want to walk around with.I'm also interested in how much potential in-ears have looking 20 years in the future. Having the drivers so close to the ear...
Indeed you might be right. Open dynamic drivers have a technical limitation of not being able to produce linear deep bass like orthos and stats. Nothing a little EQ can't fix though. I suspect there is where the real future lies. The combination of corrective software and light easy to drive/wireless headphones....
 Planars can be made much lighter and more efficient than today. The T50RP is 330 grams and if Sennheiser really put some effort with new lightweight materials and drivers with a slender design (looking at you MA900) I have no doubt they could make a planar at 250g. Perhaps even under 200 some day with some new lightweight type of driver. Planars obviously need to get higher sensitive in order to be ultimate with any weak source. The LCD-X is 22 ohm and 96 dB so already...
I have found "Rhythm Is A Dancer" to be the perfect song when calibrating Isone. Not kidding.
