So to make them sound good you need something that adds warmth (distortion) and smears details. Okay.
[/ROLLING MY ******* EYES]
The SA5000 isn't a good headphone. It's essentially an open-air, angled Grado. Except, nasty ringing and resonances aside, Grados actually have fast attack. The SA5000 doesn't. It does sound fast at first listen but as you keep using it you realize it's just faking speed by being dry, bass light, and treble happy. It's slow and its treble is extremely out of control. The soundstage is extremely closed in sounding and they have problems with distortion in the bass. It's one of the worst headphones I've ever used.
The HD800 is a good headphone. It actually has bass and it has excellent attack and decay. They're completely incomparable in my opinion.
Well aren't you a ray of sunshine.
So what you're essentially saying is that tube amps make music listening worse.
I guess I'll do you a favor and not be as rude as you've been in this post by rolling my eyes and all.
Not everybody is an elitist audiophile with no interest in music.
