You have neck room for some reason. If I wear over the ears and in the front, the cable becomes a choker. 


So your neck is more or less like this ?

 

 

Just kidding ;)

On second thought, I can't see why my head would make any difference to your head, when it comes to wearing IEMs over-ear. tongue.gif

Try plugging them into a Tera Player....

Don't you like your IE800 anymore ?

Music explains in his FS listing. I get it. I heard the HD800 for the first time just over a week ago - driven by a fine Rudistor system.  For home use, the HD800 is a serious player. And it is very comfortable indeed.

I´m listening to rock/minimalistic electronica/metal on IE800 exclusively... The bass is too much on some stuff, but on classic rock it´s very nice. These are very genre specific IEMs, but very good ones at that.

So, those are the genres where the IE800 excells?

I'm moving from Sennheiser HD800 to IE800.  smily_headphones1.gif

Are they too sensitive for Samsung Galaxy S III or Galaxy Note II ?  Do they pick up hissing ?

Pretty much I think... Compared to BA IEMs (or Sony dynamics) it lacks air and imaging isn´t as good.

Hmmm... I thought one of the IE800 main advantages was it's kind of "out-of-the-head" sound (I've read that somewhere), unlike the usual IEM sound. Anyway, these are way too expensive to be an unsure purchase...

Don't have them here to try, but I remember hearing a very faint hiss from my SGS3. Nothing seriously annoying though.

IE800 is airy, very few IEMs can match is airyness. Bass is a tad much though, I agree.

Did you try your impedance adapters with it?
