These are what the HD 800s should have looked like.

First of all, it is true. Second, the increase in price must have been supported by the sales record of the HD800s. A business is out there to make profits and if the increase in price would have caused enough decrease in demand to decrease profits, then Sennheiser wouldn't have raised the price.post #198 of 35451/10/12 at 12:34pmpost #199 of 35451/10/12 at 12:39pm
Didnt see the specs (if they are even out yet) but are they supposed to be the Sennheiser's equivalent to AKG's K701 (K702, Q701) , what do you guys think. Since reviews suggest that the HD650s are slightly below 701 in performance, should these cans, given their price, be better than the K701 (i believe so)?post #200 of 35451/10/12 at 12:57pmpost #201 of 35451/10/12 at 1:03pm
Those are rather nice looking, they appear to be going for a Sci-Fi look for these. Too bad they're more than I'm willing to pay right now. Perhaps in the future...

I view sennheiser as the mercedes-benz of headphone and other brands such as beyerdynamic and denon as BMW and Lexus. Even though they are in the same class, sennheiser will always have a slight advantage over it's competitors just like how people view mercedes to BMW, IMO.post #203 of 35451/10/12 at 1:04pmpost #204 of 35451/10/12 at 1:05pmQuote:Originally Posted by Butter123

I see Beyer as sort of the GM Hey, GM makes a few good cars too.

Personally, I'd say Beyer = Volkswagen. When you get a good one, you'll love it and it will last forever. But if you get a bad one, get ready...post #206 of 35451/10/12 at 1:15pmpost #207 of 35451/10/12 at 1:20pmQuote:
Agree. VW is a better analogy.post #208 of 35451/10/12 at 1:23pmQuote:Originally Posted by mikiphile

The Hd650 is as far as I know a popular headphone than the AKG K701. I owned the K701 but sold it, the HD650 is imo much better (too bad because the K701 is really cheap now!). I also preferred the K601 to the K701, more musical. AKG in the old days, now that were some awesome headphones.post #209 of 35451/10/12 at 1:29pmQuote:
There's such a thing as a good VW?
