well, no reason to not be skeptical but... really. i am excited to see fake or real news. the hd800 no matter its looks will be a winner and be a great seller as have all the high end hd series headphones. it looks a little strange but it also is the start of a new age. 800 may be a drastic look however i hope not. i really like the quiet lines of the hd580-6x0 series.
