No talk about the LE Reds? I think they look quite spiffy. Here's a fly in the ointment, comparing these to my "plain" K7XXs, these are ~1 dB more forward in the mid-upper bass region. Might just be driver variances, but it's definitely there (doing A>B, same amp), even my wife can hear the difference. Also they seem to be slightly more open in soundstage. If I can get them back from her (red's her favorite color) I'll post some more observations. Oh, why are these...
Well, the S replaced the 800 on his Wall, so even with the mods he must feel the new model is worth it, he says as much in his review. I'm not sure I'd spend nearly $1000 for cans that have been recently one-upped by a new model. To each their own, though.
There's a very real difference in the magnets and diaphragms used in the 800S, compared to the 800, something that can't be fixed with modding (which adds its own problems by increasing distortion
but the HD800 isn't black (unless you got one through Colorware), and that alone accounts for 20% more betterer sound. Fact.
I'd go with that, I'd probably even pay $1450 w/ shipping, but my neurosis doesn't allow me to pay full MAP for audio gear, it's just the way I'm wired (and I worked in high-end audio sales in college, I know the mark-ups) I'm a cheapskate. Every time I look at it I'd get annoyed.
I meant that I've only ever heard the Mjolnir 2 in a fully balanced setup, the DAC was a Gungnir, but I imagine practically any DAC would sound great connected SE.
The K712 is brighter than the K7XX, but the K7XX and K702 65A are virtually identical.
It's a way around MAP pricing, it's also how some sellers can sell Sennheiser, Audeze, etc. for well below retail, they cut the outer seal and sell it as "open box" or "B-stock".
I registered mine, I had no issues doing that.
No idea, I've only heard it balanced.
