i'm only asking about the SQ and not other factors
post #2 of 46
Yes
post #3 of 46
yes

(based on short listening, but it was good )

Not to me, I rather spend the money on a vintage Joseph Grado can! Yes I did compare them side by side.

Having compared the K1000 with the HD800, I much prefer the former
post #6 of 46
Definitely.

Not to me.
But since sound quality is very subjective you will have clear voices from both leagues, as there simply are no right answer.

Definitely not to me. I had them and sold them....
post #9 of 46
Yes, without a doubt.

Yes, although I feel they are best balanced, and require a good source + amp to really show their best.

Thanks for the help,but again,about 50% say yes and 50% say no,so i can't really decide

comparisons with other 1000$+ cans that you have,or have heard,or an explantion to why you do or do not think they are worth their price will be welcome

why did you like the K1000 more than the HD800?

HD800 sound amazing balanced with a good cable. Believe the hype.

Had the K1000's and R10's (along with DX1000's, MD5000's, W5000's, and a few others) and sold them after getting the HD800's. Are the HD800's "better" than the K1000's and R10's? Very subjective call as both the others are incredible in their own ways. The HD800's are great balanced, and when run such give the air of the K1000's, more bass than the R10's, and are simply a terrific overall headphone. Are they "perfect?" No. And, I still want to hear the new PS1000 and Edition 8's just for interests sake, as they seem to be direct competitors to the HD800's.
