For those who have heard any Beyer and HD800, how would you compare the HPs? Thanks.

I did once but took down soon. It's not worth doing there. They see you as some kind of brainless guy spending that much money in a headphone.

+1. And that's why it's going to be a bit longer for "our type" of HPs to become better known in India and hence marketed as such. I must say though that I found a bunch of guys in Chennai that are very big into DIY stuff. I don't have a fraction of their knowledge although they are more into full fledged audio systems.

seems like it. you just can't imagine how these sound. you have to do it first hand, then only you know. and still it may not hit your preferences right. (bass light etc)

What surprises me is people can justify their own spending on things they love even if it cost a fortune but make fun of others when it comes to spending. Everyone has their own passion and people should respect that.

True. And I am also willing to bet that an overwhelming majority of Indians would consider the HPs we own as luxury and completely unnecessary. It's a social thing as well.

Anyway on a more relevant topic, just took delivery of a KGSSHV for my Stax. This is a beast! Reviews a little later.

Awesome but i'm still waiting for your impression between stax and 800. Atleast a small comparison about where they excel each other will be great.

I put it off until I got the Kevin Gilmore amp. The Stax 717 is a very good amp and apparently pairs very well with the 009. But the KGSSHV is supposed to be a cut above. Now that I have it and with the Zana Deux for my 800, I plan to have a ball.
You should come to Chennai one of these days. I have set it all up in my office so that I can do some critical listening. Ask Jagan.

I would love to do that. I think I will make it during one of my future Chennai visits hopefully. Regarding the amp, is it DIY? How much you shelled out?

I think it's the same offer vaibhavp mentioned earlier. There is also a new koss esp950 listing. I'd like to see more brands in Indian websites especially amps.

DIY by a guy called Geoff Clarke in England. The price: £ 1,250.
