For you people that started out with a very good sounding speaker based sound system first prior to headphones, do you find it harder to find the ideal sound through headphones?
Do you feel it is harder to dial in the sound that you are looking for in headphone based setup since the sound is more intimate to your ears? Or does your headphone based experience exceed any speaker based system you have ever heard?
I recently had: Salk HT3 speakers powered by BAT VK-60 monoblocks. A very nice speaker system. I am now primarily listening with HD800s through a Woo Audio WA5 and I am thrilled. I don't know if I can say the headphone system exceeds the speaker system in every respect, but I don't feel as if I am missing anything other than the physical impact of the bass. Every time I crank up this headphone rig, I am amazed. I am totally satisfied and enjoying listening more than I have in a few years.
