im just waiting for them to pop in the FS forums to grab one.soundstage and "air" are my prime interest:).
The jh13 is more juicy sounding to me, sweet and addictive. The HD800 is drier, more airy and open, layers are also very different. The layers seem like a whole different type, the JH13 you kind of have to wear and get used to the layering and then, "aha" and "wow". I would say that the HD800 is clearer and airier, yes but also for me just on a higher level. Treble, just a different presentation due to the different way the layers displayed to the listener. Instrument separation and depth is a big part of it i think. I am not great at discribing sound, never was a good BSer. Given the choice i always listen to the HD800 hands down, but out and about or in a noisy place the JH13 comes in very handy.
