I heard you the first time

I'm not (and probably won't ever be) willing to sacrifice the space for a good speaker rig. Despite the slight geek gear fetish, I prefer a more minimalish living space.

I remain very interested to hear these. I've heard "detailed but not fatiguing" a thousand times, lets see if Sennheiser can deliver!

Damn, I was saving up for speakers too, but at the same time hoping for an affordable option from Senn since the L3000 was definitely out of reach for me.

These sound too good to me by Jude's words. They look like speaker drivers mounted on a headphone. I'd probably get them next year, when it all settles down.

It's obviously not 100% made of metal, the black parts are some kind of plastic and I believe that the silver parts are not metal but silver painted/sprayed plastic of some sort.

I would expect more for a flagship product above a grand, it looks fragile.

It is terrible looking, and yet I want it so badly.

WOW, I'm glad I held out to upgrade 580's. SCORE!

Wow, those look pretty sweet. I just bought HD600's, but I don't think I am ready to fork over $1400 for headphones yet anyway!

Give it a year or so, and I am sure I will change my tune!!

It looks like the frame holding the driver in place is made out of metal. You can see this picture here:

As for the fragility, the HD 800 looks like it's built like a tank to me. I'm not sure what makes you think it looks fragile?
