I'm a long time user of the Sennheiser HD650 and I think it's time for an upgrade / replacement. Firstly, some background info. I use my current 650 at least 4 hours each weekday and about 12 hours across a weekend. I often go to sleep wearing them and 'drop' the headphone to the floor next to my bed during the night, typically by lowering them while holding onto the cable. I've replaced most parts 2 or 3 times and I'm onto my second 650. Sometimes I use them while on public transport so they get knocked around a little in wearing them / storing in bags etc. I don't see it as I mistreat my headphones, rather I'm a heavy and frequent user.
Rather than get another 650 I'm looking at the 800 as a possible replacement. I'm slightly concerned however the 800 is not as tough as the 650 for how I use it. The cable, for example, to me seems to stick out more than what it does on the 650 and may bend or break more easily if I have them on and turn my head while in bed.
I'm also heading over to Germany in a couple of months and I'm curious if there is any significant price difference compared with international prices (I'm in Australia). If anyone has any experience / knowledge of prices in Germany please let me know.
I appreciate all positive replies.
