That Zeus he has is good cable but i like to go back to the stock cable now and then just to see how much the difference really is and reaffirm over and over the difference.  I have a pretty resolving set up so it is fairly stark.

Oh dear....

 

But it was on a Woo! blink.gif  I mean....they did install the tubes, did they not?

 

Eric's response to that may be the most priceless part of all, though biggrin.gif  That's got to be the best political, snickering behind the keyboard corporate reply to a completely incindiary and clueless complaint I've seen.  Sennheiser reps usually play it very stiff, serious, and corporate script-driven.  For a Senn rep to let the snarkiness shine through the reply says a lot about what they were talking about at the water cooler that day bigsmile_face.gif

 

I wonder how may edits it took before hitting submit on the vendor reply was a permissible thing to do? evil_smiley.gif

i would like to hear your impressions on the hd800 vs jh13 regarding clarity and treble dallan if you have the time.

im just waiting for them to pop in the FS forums to grab one.soundstage and "air" are my prime interest:).

"Doesn't work when I pray and ask for stuff. This book is faulty. It doesn't work when I pray for an Audi R8. I tried to pray for something less expensive and it still doesn't show up in front of me. If people can part seas with prayers then I should be able to at least get shaved ice cream."

Before today I didn't realize trolling Amazon was a thing.

Really? Read some of the reviews for say...the $400,000 teddy bear or the 10mil watch.

I'm curious if anyone has heard from Robert at Aphrodite CU 29 . . . he seems to have vanished . . .

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.

I think it's also worth drawing attention to the response from Sennheiser below the review. 

In all honesty, I can't ever recall being as impressed by the build quality of any product I have owned or encountered as I have with the HD 800, especially upon reading the manual.

the silver colour on mine is starting to wear off + I already sent it repaired once because the headband was making squeaky noises

I've had my HD 800 for around 6 months. The silver colour is as intact as it was when I purchased it and the headband - though the clips on one end of the headband padding that hold it to the frame are slightly looser on one side - works perfectly. I have seen demo HD 800 headphones in worse condition than others and to me it makes sense that like any other product, if it is handled with care, it will probably last a lifetime in prime condition.

Mine had 2 previous owners before me and throughout the time I had them not one issue with paint chips or any part of the build, really.

I finally talked to him last week. He has been very busy. Send him an email or try to call him and leave a message.

That's why I kept the connectors and just replaced the internal wire to match the Zeus.
