Its true. Part of it really has to do with little things. For most of the TOTL cans there is something I don't like about them. Like the LCD-3s, I explained above. With the HE-6s, there are too many people that have had failures and had to send them back, along with them feeling cheap and being like creaky and such cause of the plastic construction. Even with the 009s, there are the balance issues, and everything else that goes along with have electrostats, you really have to decide if all of that is worth it. The 800s really are the only TOTL headphone that has a nearly spotless track record for quality and immense comfort.
But alas, I haven't had any troubles with my 009s, I am excited to get to compare them to the 800s though.
anyways, maybe we should get back on topic
Not to mention, for some reason the treble on the 800s has never bothered me, now the 700s...thats a different story, I literally start getting a headache within like 10 minutes of putting those cyber grados on my head
