 We should definitely offer to Sennheiser to use those dummy heads and make flat frequency response hps. In the past 3 years was some rumors around here about Sennheiser making a studio version of the HD-800, but today looks like those rumors are vanished.
 Yes I'm willing to compromise, but only to some degree. I mean for me hps are first a studio tool, this means I will not EQ them and then try to compensate for my dark mix. You can EQ the HD-800 if you want, but this can cause a butterfly effect in the sound dynamics to some songs especially after today loudness war that most of the music is mastered minimum of 6-to-9 dbs over just to fit the "industrial standards".   
    With the K702 for the last few years I let my guard down by hoping the Ultrasone titanium drivers nightmares are part of the forgotten past. lol, for now looks like this will hunt me for a few years more, my guess is and I'm not sure that Ultrasone titanium drivers had the same resonance problems just on biggest scale.  Thanks TwoEars, the Rin Choi blog is a great read.
 I hope the K-812 have the same flexibility in the drivers as the K70x to start smooth the sound after 120-180hr of burn in. Cable probably will help as well, but the question is to what degree.
 lol, if he start taking about the treble boost maybe he knows what he taking about. It's sad but the HD-800 have a boost/peak in the treble area. Beyer did the same mistake with the T1  treble boost, and know to hear about the K812 same treble boost or worst is very frustrating for me after waiting a few years for AKG to make their move with a new flagship hps.  In a week or so the K812 will be in Israel and I'll be able to check them out. I'll take my Phonitor with me to...
yup, looks like this stand will flat those pads faster.
 Are you monitoring in studio with the HD-800?
  With a pro studio amp like the SPL Phonitor the HD-800 treble peak is very audible especially with electronic music. Now, to mix or master with 800s it can be very hard. First your mix/mastering can get dark, opposite to the treble peak. Second there is no studio monitor that I know to be boost by + 5 db in 20Hz area. As well Sennheiser never claim for the HD-800 to be a studio monitor headphones. Is possible to roll off the treble peak of the HD800 with some tube amp,...
  Closer to the Sony Qualia 010, but no carbon parts, no color pads, and no dual entry cable.
  A playback on different systems is always good, but eventually you'll need to know, learn and trust on one system as your main one. I do too have big hopes for the 812s, but I'm not in the rush because probably I'll need to change my main system again.
