6 months of starvation, here I come! (Just kidding, been thinking about them for long)

HD600 were certainly a bargain and these are keepers whatever the preference, they're just too valuable. Plus I get to hear how elements come together in mixes quite well due to narrower soundstage. I have a feeling both would complement each otber.

HD800 for crisp accuracy and soundstage, and HD600 to make sure my mixes are not too warm due to HD800 thin reproduction (me adding extra thump where not needed).

I'm happy with HD600 with most genres but for my favorite stuff they're too warm to express the detail fully.

Reference material Tesseract, Katatonia, Nightwish etc.

DIstortion is handled better by the LCD-2 than any other HP in this comparison:

From the graphs, the LCD 3 handles distortion better than HD800 (especially at higher volumes).

THe only HP that beats the LCD-2 in low distortion as far as I know is the stax 207.

I just myself got a HD600,

This thing is amazing considering its price point.

I tested the HD650 before and it was not for me, but the 600.... they complement my HE--400 like a charm.

 

I like them far better than the HD700 (tested them as well, the treble was off for me, too much of it).

 

I think these babies have more than enough bass.

 

Next step, lcd-2 or electrostats :D.
