 what you said kind of put things into perspective and brought me back to senses. I been researching this thing all morning but had to rethink what I'd get out of something that's mainly designed for portability (which I don't need). I definately wouldn't take the hd800 anywhere outside my home, I'd would just go with my IEMs/Colorfly c4 Dap on the road.I'm liquidating alot of stuff in order to buy some new things but I guess I should look at the application I need them...
anyone have driect experience using the Chord Hugo with hd800. this Hugo looks very interesting the type of product Ive been waiting for for a long time,   anyone have any feeback?
I recently ran the hd800 off a Jeff Korneff 45 tube integrated which is a 2watt/channel speaker amp just for kicks by  i putting a 8ohm resistor accross the speaker taps. The sound was pretty good but the problem is not practical to use this way long term.  The amp only has one set of speaker outputs and toggling back and forth between the headphones and speakers and taking the resistors on and off is a hassle.   yea I'm still searching for a solid state integrated to...
nice pic, curious of your impression vs the hd800 that you own
For anyone that owns both hd800 LCD-X.   my main priorities are Resolution and Transparency.  Do you think the LCD X is better or worse here?   I have no doubts for Rock/Electronic/Pop, possibly Jazz that LCD X might be better. But can LCD X even compete with, let alone beat, the hd800 on Classical/Film scores which is my current main genre?
Interesting I figured he6 would be great for rock/electronic but if you prefer for classical/ jazz also  that is quite an endorsement
 curious what genres do you listen to most of the time, can't be too much jazz/classical?
@dleblanc343 , Curious what tube amp you own that you prefer to your CMA800R.?
After 2 months of ownership the hd800 have really hit all the right buttons with me just sounding right, smooth and transparent with the resolution I always wanted. IME they don't sound bright, hard or sibilant whatsoever.   Im definitely done buying headphones (unless winning the lottery is in my future).   even on a mjolnir/gungnir (usb gen 2) where schiit stack is suppose to be close to end game I prefer hd800 over the lcd2.2 by a good margin.  I've been comparing...
very helpful obsevations.  I was very close to pulling the trigger on a X but decided to hold back for a bit to get more feedback as some of the intitial reviews were a bit too much over the top.  I see alot of others who are also echoing your findings.
