yep, most of the time, nothing stands out of this phone.
But, it is like cigarets, once you get use to it, it is very hard to get yourself off the hook.
Lots of times, you have to train your ear to look for those small easy to miss difference, once you notice they are there, it is impossible to live without them~~~
Or, you will still end up hating the phone regardless.
Headfi is personal. There is no right or wrong answers.
It's like, personally I really do not like the sound and design of Grado. I think they only worth 1/10 of its listing price. There is no real development cost or technology behind it.
However, I cannot say that the phone is junk and people like it are stupid. No, there is a reason for people to say those things and I think they are perfectly valid points.
So, I think HD800 is boring, and I am just a person like boring sound. (Well, I guess I might need some LCD excitement soon~~~)
