What is the serial number range? Is it another 27xxx?

Here's mine. I like its very slight V shape.

No that's not the link to get a frequency chart. You have to use this link http://en-de.sennheiser.com/service-support/services/register-your- product

And here's mine. Mine actually has a slight dip at 6kHz!

The latest ones certainly seem to have a slight boost in the bass and a flatter response around 6kHz compared to the very early ones.

actually I owned one of the first  hd800 3 years ago, I didn't like them at all....

 

this "new" version is much more enjoyable, flatter mid/highs, no sibilance, and more bass....IMO now it's really quite perfect.

That's good to hear! I'm not sure how possible it is to actually hear the small differences between HD 800's with slightly different looking graphs, but I suspect that there would be minor detectable differences within an otherwise very similar sonic signature - or in the case of the HD 800, is a lack of sonic signature!?

 

Nonetheless, I can say that I pleased with the graph for mine. It looks particularly flat around the middle (1 - 2kHz) and pretty smooth above that too. Not that I'm thinking about that when I'm listening to them of course! ;)

I think it depends by the way the graph is taken and shown....

 

for example on headroom graphs we see much higher tips, so the sennheiser graph, even if it shows less higer tips, in fact they are more accentuated

Don 't think the differences are really audible, it depends on the frequency and loudness but the smallest discernable difference is about 1dB and even then I surmise it becomes insignificant taking into account the influence of the rest of the chain. But hey, I like graphs as much as the next guy ;-)

I must underline that my gear has been the same till then

Yeah, but maybe your ears didn't, humans lose sensitivity in the higher fq range over time. Or your memory of how they sounded 3years before. Anyway, don't want to argue the point.

we are talking about the 6k-9k range, nothing i'm gonna loose very soon,or ever, being 30 years old :rolleyes:

sibilance in my old model is something you don't forget so easly

As i said i don't want to argue the point..perhaps a bit hard of hearing after all, 30 or not..
