It's held in high regard because it has earned it. Apart from the treble, which isn't as bad as many make it seem, the HD 800 makes sounds no other headphone near its price point can. I was hoping the K812 would destroy it since then it'd finally get some real competition. But that doesn't seem to be the case, so it'll remain competitively priced when stacked against the best everyone else has to come with.
