The Sennheiser HD-800, another view - Page 3

k3oxkjo, nice work on expressing your own perspective. A couple of people have received their FR graphs for their pairs, and it seems the 500-series serial numbers have a slightly hotter treble in the 6k range than those in other ranges. As I felt my pair was over-emphasising sibilance, and others did not with their own pairs, it seems to explain much.

I am cross-posting this, since I think it's highly interesting, and relevant.

Indeed, this is VERY interesting to me - considering the serial number of the pair I have is 590. There is no doubt that the peak in the treble response of pair 517 belonging to member Kelvinz will be audible, and very likely in exactly the ways I have described. What is interesting is that Vai-777's graph does not contain the same peak.

It's way too early to call this a trend, but I hope more people would post their curves when they receive them, because this might indeed shed some interesting light on the difference of opinion that head-fiers seem to have over these cans.

It would be fascinating to see the curves of k3oxkjo's pair.

Still wait for HD 800 to be available in France... at a much higher price...
But it is encouraging to hope that other major manufacturers may also release new flagship products !
I think everyone is hoping for that.
