um a quick question. if i wanted to buy used HD800, should i try and pick  a particular serial number range for the "best" tuning? most common problem seems to be people dont' like the treble on it.

I saw it written that HD 800 treble 'issues' have been resolved in all the post ~#1000 serial-numbered HD 800's.

 

With my #28xx HD 800 I'm finding that an aftermarket cable such as the Moon Audio Black Dragon - in tandem with moderate volume listening - tames the excess brightness of the stock-cabled HD 800. It sounds fantastic! smily_headphones1.gif

I thought about getting an after-market cable, but the situation is complicated by the fact that there's more variability between my tracks (which range from pop and punk to reggae and ska) due to genre than the headphones themselves. I get the feeling that I'd have the same feeling no matter what headphone I use.

I listen to many different genres/tracks and am finding that re-cabling the HD 800 has made my overall listening experience with the HD 800 much more enjoyable. The BD cable tames the treble and fills out the bass region; that and Amarra Hifi are much more satisfying to me than the stock-cabled HD 800.

There's a lot of speculation about which is the golden batch, but honestly it's a crapshoot. In any case the response would be off by at most a couple db.

I hadn't been aware of the Amarra software, and the fact that it's available for the Mac is a treat. I downloaded the free trial - and as you promised, there are some significant changes in the sound. Considerably richer bass, unquestionably. I don't want to weigh in on the software, because the listener should make the decision. I'm still weighing the value of a cable upgrade, though more discussion here would be helpful. confused_face_2.gif

Is just e-mailing to Sennheiser enough to request the certificate? My pair is 16xxx btw, and I feel no harshness in the upper mids and highs at all. No surprise perhaps, for a DT880/600, ER4S and TF10 user.

My HD800 Diffuse Field FR is as shown.  The HF is OK to my ears but I have also made the mod just in case.

 

 

1000

 

I also replaced the stock cable with Oyaide cable and it really sounds wonderful. See this link:

Enter your headphones' name at first. And don't forget to put the tick near the graph "Yes, please send me the frequency response certificate for my HD 800" on the next page!

Right, the Anaxilus mod.  I am really happy with my HD800 and I consider it is much superior than HD650 and AKG Q701 which I also owned.

Now I mainly used my HD800 and will soon get rid of the 650 and follow by Q701.
