A bit messy perhaps, but nevertheless, quite entertaining Anyway, what was the original topic again...

I have to admit I was a bit worried about pushing a bit too hard,...

The question is, should a buyer need to go through all this to get the best out of a phone? In my experience, 100dB(A) pink noise for about 6 hours was sufficient to mellow them down from their edgy and harsh sound.

Oh please, take it to the other thread will you? This has been beaten to death several times already.

I have the Zana Deux, which is well known to be a great amp to drive and control the HD650's, but they are still far away from being the kind of bass monsters you seem to want them to be. You would need other headphones for that, I am sure. And, unfortunately, I do not think $500 will get you very far in your quest.

What you describe sounds like a bad combination, and will...
On the environmental side, may I suggest to break-in the HD800 with a higher volume for a shorter period of time, which in my experience have lead to the same result as those with three numbers in their break-in time. You see, because of the physical factor of the headphones driver, I believe the volume used for break-in is an important factor for how long it takes, and why there are so much variations around. Another benefit is that you do not have to wait several...
