Had the HD800/Phonitor couple for a few weeks. Sold both. At first, engaging, exact, detailed, dynamic. At second view : agressive, not so subtle differenciation. Transients were like cliffs and the whole experience was a bit of a roller coaster.
I sold Phonitor to a sound engineer who was astonished I could bear such harsh and dried neutrality for so long. Sound engineer need flatness to judge outputs, they don't need it to make music, just values on a monitor.
