Hehe. I'll just be late...

 

I get £721.78, for two drivers, complete headband, pads & cable, minus special male connection plug and case.

 

I got excited until I realised I'd forgotten to add the headband.

 

Still, it's a fair bit better than £999.99.

I didn't realise the pads come as a pair. My bad.

Pretty good though, eh? I actually bought a second hand pair for about £150 and have since replaced the headband pad, discs and earpads. Had I known etc.

I bought the large "CASEBUDi" from Amazon. Fits perfect. I highly recommend it. $25 US.

I have a large case labeled "V-Mota" with a Koss logo on it that I got from ebay. I fits my Q701 easily so the HD650 should be no problem.

there should be no problem if it fits the 701. I think it'll fit, and hope it goes good for you smily_headphones1.gif

I own hd650 and momentum. I'm really interested in getting the ie800 but not sure if I will like its sound . I've got the impression it's very bassy and I find the hd650 about right in the bass but the momentum a bit much. How does it compare ? Also are the microphonics and issue? I would be using for long dog walks mainly .

I just received my 650's, which are my first pair of Sennheiser's, something I have been looking forward to for awhile after seeing all the praise here on Head-Fi. My immediate impression is that they sound great. I'm just using a cheap little SMSL that I just got, so not sure if I'm getting the full effect yet. Later tonight I'll try them at home on my Bifrost + Vali combo, and see how they sound there.

 

One thing I'm noticing right off the bat tho, if I have them actually sized to fit my head snugly, they REALLY hurt at the top of my head. I have to loosen it up a bit, which isn't really a problem, just surprised me how tight they can be when actually fit to size.

I don't think it's very bassy. The sound signature is very similar to HD650s (rather than HD800 which is similar in name) and while it has plenty of bass, it never results in recessed mids or treble. The sound is very musical, engaging and fun, also very detailed and transparent. Like the HD650s, I can listen to them for hours without any  physical discomfort or ear fatigue. They are the most comfortable and best sounding IEMs I've tried. Also they look very cool. I'll say that though, if you don't like bass, you won't like IE800s. It's not that they are bassy but they aren't thin and analytical sounding. If you like HD650s, you'll like them 99%.

 

From home to work and back, I have a driver so I sit on the back of the car and listen to IE800s without moving at all myself. I didn't try listening to them whilst walking, at least not for more than 10 minutes, I don't enjoy music that way. However, some say IE800s have bad microphonics. While I haven't had such issue, I'm not the right person to answer that question as I didn't walk much whilst using them.
