Maybe Senn targeted the HD800 specifically for those that have tube amps? IMO.

every Grado in a nutshell (shamelessly ripped from a Beyerdynamic impression... still fittig for their current lineup as well)

 

194

 

I know there is a lot of crap on the market ~99%, even today's giants like the LCD2/3 have massive flaws which have to be modded.

Hell, even the HD800 is horrid without the newer mods and tubes to cure the treble peak.

The only stock can without any massive flaws I can think of is the HD600.

I don't think that it is fair to call the 800 horrid. Sure, you may not like it's sig, but you have to appreciate it's technical prowess. I actually love the 800 (as well as the 600).

Well I need to see a double rainbow and unicorns farting said double rainbows first to have a chance at listening a HD800. :P

Tubes work best IME, but there have been some reports of the new Grace M903 as an example of SS having excellent synergy with the HD 800.

The 800's sound great with the grace. Got to a/b them with the grace and a darkvoice 336se at a local meet awhile back.

So detailed,that it "disassembles" music to pieces.
