How can your current set-up, amp and headphones for $1,500 be better than the HD800s? the HD800's are 1,400 by themselves, and you need a good amp, at least $500, if not $1000+ to properly run it. Thats $2000 plus to get started.
Did you use a good amp with the HD800?
Well, unfortunately, money and cost really has nothing to do with what I prefer. To answer the question my HD800 rig is very, very cabable and, coupled with the headamp GS-1 amp...it is my best rig and I still do love it but I thought it was the most capable headphone in terms of resolving details and accuracy but the STAX have proved me wrong. I think if I talk about value...the Stax 4040II sig system rig beats the hd800 in spades....IMHO.
Wow, the K1000s are that good, huh?
Agree completely with this sentiment, Anaxilus.
