The kit itself is actually very easy to do. Apparently the instructions are incredibly clear, and there's a video that helps with it too. I wouldn't let the lack of skills deter you. 

 

I think this is the furthest I've ever derailed a thread... sorry!

But will be buying a tube amp in the future. Thanks for all the great advice guys I really mean it. Without you guys I would still be stuck with the Denon D7100.

i tend to use my Beyerdynamic T1 more than the HD 800, but recently i've been falling in love with my HD 800 after tube rolling quite a bit, its really one of the best headphones out right now.

Some say they are amazing with great bass! and other say rubbish and sound like fart cannons!...... Am shocked how there isnt any type of middle ground really and unsure if they are a upgrade from my D2000s or a downgrade!

That is why you have to take these so-called reviews with a grain of salt, most people commenting don't even own them.

It is always best to audition for yourself, everybody has different hearing acuity and hear certain frequencies differently.

WRT detractors in this thread. Most of us did own them, but we sent them back.

Just to confuse you more: I heard them twice. The first time they were awful and the second time they had shrieking highs but weren't too shocking otherwise. I suspect it may have had much to do with what they were plugged into. It may well have something to do with the number of hours that they had on them too, but that's only taking a guess. They may well have done an Ultrasone in that the cans are half-decent but vastly over-priced. Of course, in an ordinary store like the ones here you just about cannot buy orthos (though given the totally obscure stuff that has turned up in Yodobashi Camera recently anything is possible) so many people may simply take them at face value given the price and the brand name.

FYI, $781 at amazon today (2013-April-02) for those who still wants to buy... 

Not that I am going to buy at this price, :) (still waiting for another $300-$400 drop..) ^ ^

Just saw that now Amazon is selling them directly at £565 before they were selling at £600. But if you look around you can buy them as low as £450 in UK. At 450 they are a good buy for someone who is looking for a portable headphone and like bass heavy music. I remember that on bass heavy tracks the whole headphone would shake. BOOM BOOM BAM BAM nice music if your into that sort of stuff.

i think 200$ usd would be a fairer price.

And I think 420 sterling pounds is bargain as you are getting great and refined headphones.

I would say £420 is the right price. Considering it comes with a metal stand. Take the accessories away and I would be only willing to pay around £300 max. Even then I would have other better options like the Sennheiser Amperior, Sennheiser Momentum, Logitech UE 9000, and Sennheiser HD 600/HD650. If you like your bass then go for Philips Fidelio X1.

 

Personally I dont think many people are buying these headphones. You have to consider why retailers are offering such huge discount on these headphones as the suggested MRP is £1000. Is Denon dumping stock? If so why? Denon took a gamble with these headphones and it failed. Looking at the D7000 with its classic design i would call that as refined and beautiful. Replacing all that nicely finished wood with plastic and you have to ask what were the designers thinking?

It failed partly because of head-fi too. I think the forum has a great impact on the market, and often some opinion are "amplified" here, because you'd lot of people repeating them to death even if they didn't try the headphone. I'm wondering if sennheiser would be selling the hd800 today, if head-fi didn't exist.
