Until you change the emphasis around... and read further. Fact is, as Tyll said, if you don't mind modding and EQing, the HD800 still has plenty of appeal. However, I heartily agree with his decision to knock the old HD800 off the WoF, and for the very same reason:I've modded the crap out of my 800s, and even run EQ with them (when possible, I can't do that with my turntable) and while they're technically amazing I've never loved them, that's not true with the 800S. I can...
What "break-in" that does exist is very minor (95% of it is your brain adjusting), and I've only ever heard it with dynamic headphones, not planars. Essentially, if you don't like a set of cans before they "settle in", you won't like them after, either.

That's not the case with the 800S, it's good with nearly anything (even my iPad, I tried it) and scales up with better gear, all the way through the roof. IMO, they're the best non-electrostats in the world, full stop. Add a really nice balanced amp to them and they sing like no others.I'm...
I was told Cypher wasn't available until mid-April, they haven't even started shipping any yet.
Yep, works great.
The only things the Sine has going against it are; - Its smaller soundstage (because of its smaller drivers) - some will find it to be a little less comfortable, due to it being an on-ear Otherwise, it's an engaging, smoothly seductive headphone with beautiful aesthetics. Likely the best on-ears I've ever heard and one of the best
Enhanced. The driver itself is of a slightly different design.Correct. People have seriously been misreading his review.
Yep, mine is like that too. Totally normal.
