I've ordered both.

 

And a new amp/DAC.

 

I hate this site :)

 

 

What's the new Amp and DAC?

     Any Radiohead fans blown away by the HD 800 pairing?? Honestly I don't think I've ever heard a more synergistic combo. Rest of chain is Eximus DP1 and ZDSE. I know it's cliche to claim "I know it's cliche to claim I hear things for the first time...", but DAAAAAMN. It's not so much the stupid-crazy detail extraction of this combo-as much as the ethereal presentation. The holographic imaging (which all of my components are known for), seems absolutely made for this music. After listening with many other headphones, and even speaker systems-I truly am hearing Street Spirit, Lucky, Idioteque, Right Place and more for the first time. In fact, other headphones and speakers I've heard don't begin to reach this combo-to the degree that they just sound wrong. Like everything I've heard all of these years simply does the band no justice-in fact I wasn't a huge fan until I got the HD 800. It's seriously like sitting in the absolute middle of the psychadelic/electronic orgy of offbeat technical wizadry that Yorke and co. were experiencing all along. And if my TH900s can't capture this combo's magic-I will be re-purchasing the Senn-if only for Radiohead. It's that good. basshead.gif

 

Sorry for the slight off topic-but anyone with a (up to snuff) HD 800 rig needs to hear these guys, for well-the first time.

Can't say I prefer either of the two

my face when people ask who's my #1 band confused_face.gifdeadhorse.gif

They both have the greatest discography and theyre all i need

Thing that sucks is that I haven't found really found any headphones that are excellent with the Pumpkins yet-although my (first pair) of T1s were pretty damn good. I'm thinking my incoming TH900s will be excellent, especially now that I own all the reissued albums. But yeah-you need to hear the HD800s and Radiohead sometime. ;)

Pearl Jam and R.E.M. are phenomenal through the HD800. Radiohead haven't really jumped out as truly exceptional through this headphone. As much as I love this band (saw them live a few months ago) I don't really listen to their music much nowadays. I think I'm kinda burnt out on Radiohead.

post #6192 of 6594

Which genres does the 800 excel in? In which does it fall short in?

post #6193 of 6594

The HD800 is great for all genres imo. Not so good when listening to AM radio though.

Bought the two Chesky binaural CD;d and listening on the HD800 these are two outstanding binaural recordings. The sound is scary real and the music is exceptionally good. The HD800 really lets these recordings shine.  Highly recommended,

Agreed. These binaural albums are freakishly entertaining! And I'm using a DAC/AMP combo that most consider nowhere close to the task of properly driving the HD800s. The Amber Rubarth vocals are outstanding, and so is the rest of the music on the binaural sampler from earlier in 2012.

I'm really enjoying re-listening to some of my older albums - Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons Project, ELO, Foreigner, and lots of others from the 60s to 80s. And don't get me started on some of my classical and folk/country! The HD800s really have re-opened my enjoyment of music. smily_headphones1.gif
