(Silver Dragon is best on HE500s for me.)

HD800 serial 133xx.

I have both the same combinations and agree 100%....mine are both SE though....

It's just better pictured, if you look at Limited Editon above which is mostly glossy, it's quite more attractive. Not so sure about matte headband on Limited, makes it look it slightly out of pace.

I have emailed Tigzstudio about the new Norse Audio cable, silver plated copper litz. I guess there is also toxic cables. Rectangular silver like from zues etc is too expensive for me currently. My amp also has like 50cm of hookup wiring in spc so I think money might be better spent rewiring that if anything, or just wait til I find a better amp without spending thousands.

BTW, just got the TH900 today. Good headphones, but not as good as the HD800s (or HE6s). Nothing surprising. More suited for low-volume listening perhaps.

 

Only 25 hours on the TH900 and they're already changing for the better. Great cans, and spectacularly good for closed ones.  I take back the low-volume listening comment...they're good at high volumes too. They play in the same league as the 800 and HE6 (though the 800s are still my favourite). 

 

As for the HD800 cables, people need to realize not all cables are created equal. The previous DHC flagship solid core cryo UPOCC silver was easily trumped by the new rectangular silver flagship that DHC replaced them with. Smoother, more natural, bigger soundstage and slightly better bass weight.

Moon Audio's Silver Dragon V3 is pretty good, but not quite at RS' level. Watch out for low quality silver from others who sell for cheap...it can make the sound dry and harsh.

 

Also, just to clarify, with some of my setups, copper does sound more pleasing. That's why I keep both.

Using solid core silver balanced cable with my HD800. Don't have anything to compare with it but it sounds nice. Only other cable I have is the stock unbalanced which I believe is SPC?

The TH900s overtook my HD800s as my favorite dynamic canbeerchug.gif

Yea better than stock (SPC) and most copper cables IMO.

I ordered a copper cable from Toxic last week with a shorter cable for listening at my desk in my study.

It is too early to judge, V200 will need some burn in.

 

Owners of V200, how much burn in V200 needs? 20 hours? 100 hours? More?
