Yes! ... and buy more. I am saving for an HD-800s, which I am hoping is the end of the line for cans.

Trying to find a balanced setup, testing out a couple of Dac's:

When I go balanced it will be with a Schiit Gungnir Multibit or Schiit Yggdrasil DAC and a Schiit Mjolnir 2 amp.

Nice. About time :)

 

Just to clarify, the HD 800 or HD 800 S? Also, did you try out any Audeze yet?

Don't know... I am thinking the regular HD-800, since I am not bothered by the treble spike I keep reading about (at least when I've listened at meets) and they are quite bit less $$$.

 

I've auditioned Audeze, but the comfort factor was a problem for me.

Yeah I feel you on the weight of the Audeze. It surprisingly was a better experience than Hifimans. Audeze's earpads are big and deep which was nice, but the headband back then was bad. The LCD-2.2 pre-fazor was my favourite from their lineup.

 

I ask about the HD 800 because you can't EQ the BDP-1 :)

 

I've used the HD 800 without EQ fed by BDP-1 and A+ for years and it's fine for a lot of stuff without being harsh. When I listen to EQ'd version on A+ and then go to the BDP-1 right away, I can notice the inherent clarity of the BDP-1, but the sound does feel fatiguing. It's a mixed bag. That's why I have been thinking of adding another headphone that sounds great without any EQ and can utilize the BDP-1. The 2016 LCD-2 perhaps. I don't know if they have turned things around yet in terms of comfort or sound?
