I like this a lot. I keep wanting to hear the hd800, but all the reviews suggest it is not for me. I'm very treble sensitive.

You have to drive HD800 w/ OTL tube amp driven RCA clear top or RT tubes. You'll love them. HD800 is one of the phenomenal cans no doubt.

I don't like bright headphones either, but I'm really enjoying the HD800 with the Lyr and a Moon Audio Black Dragon cable. Hopefully be adding a WA2 soon.

That's exactly why I put off the hd800 for so long and went the ortho route without much success( hate bright cans). Finally I caved and went for the HD800, if for nothing else than to do my due diligence before starting to think about Stax land. Admittedly straight from my dx100 they were a little bright for my taste, but they're really a different beast with the crack. To me it sounds sorta like an HD600 on steroids now, but not as warm and bigger soundstage.

that sounds nice - the HD800 is next for me. I think I will like it. I don't find the T1 bright at all so I think the HD800 wont be problematic in that regard. 

 

Using WA2

Everything about its aesthetics is gorgeous, especially the milky white color. Only thing that bothers me is the font or number font, it reminds me of a microwave timer.....

We've done it, everybody! We've found a flaw in the perfect setup!

The TV screen looks 1-2" too big as well!

The font does not bother me at all. I would walk a mile bare foot across broken glass to listen to that system.
