Surprised at this recommendation. Last night I got to hear the HD800's on a $2500 amp, and there were some tracks that bought the hair on my neck up (remastered live dire straits), but equally some tracks which sound good, on almost all the other headphones I tried (Including the HE-6), it sounded HORRIBLE. The guitars sounded like someone was rubbing cymbals together in the background etc. I was blown away by classical music, but rock just lacked something I would call.... Impact? It was like listening to the tracks from outside the stadium. Obviously sound is subjective...
I haven't tried them with Crack
What amp? More importantly, what source? The dollar figure alone tells us nothing. From experience, most of us know (or at least suspect) that there is no guaranteed correlation between big ticket price and performance. Why the fixation on price?
