Had fun watching my S.O. pull off the HD800's when Chesky tried to whisper in her ear...

 

Enjoy the Chesky with the HD800, but if you have the UE RM-  try the Bach Toccata and Fugue Organ piece.  Wow. blink.gif

Now you know.

 

I was asking why this thread was in the full-sized headphone section with the uncouth masses. Looks like the question prompted the move to Summit-Fi where it belongs. Now we can ridicule others with impunity (I'm not serious)...

Well, it does mean there is no difference to them. Didn't think of that, did you? tongue.gif

Yes, I did,

The problem is that they are bringing their lack of ability to me and saying that I am deluding myself if I can hear a difference.

I am not trying to demean them, I just want to have them accept that I can hear a difference.

Some will NOT allow me that.

Seems I have nothing left to complain about with the HD800. The addition of Shunyata Venom's to my W4S Dac 2 and Beta 22, Black Dragon cable and Monster HTS 5000 power center has given my HD800's the last bit of fullness and bass weight I'd been searching. I find my Zana Deux works just as well as preamp when feeding the Beta. Portishead, Opeth, Burial (bands that never sounded quite right on any of my other headphones) are lovely through this setup.

3 great bands. Burial really is a new experience on the HD800.

I love Opeth and Portishead, I guess I'll check out Burial......I just recently "upgraded" from Pure Music to A+ and my HD800 have thanked me for it.

Burial is a love or hate kind if sound. Very deep and Ambient. It's not Metal though. smily_headphones1.gif

So are you saying you prefer the B22 over the Zana Deux with the HD800s?

post #6236 of 6593
No I wouldn't say that. I prefer the Zana to just about everything, but in this case the Zana Deux as preamp into the Beta 22 is better than the Zana on its own. The Beta is punchier, more aggressive and gives the 800 a weight that the Zana on its own cannot provide.

The question is then which do you prefer by itself then with the Senn?

Forced to choose, the Zana. They are both examples of the best I've heard the HD800. Still, they're phenomenal as a team.
