really? i haven't heard it, but the descriptions are that it's more "monitor" and less "hi-fi," whatever that means. i interpret it to mean a colder tone, which i don't think i'd prefer. other descriptions give the hd800 a still bigger soundstage but then say some people find the instruments getting disconnected, diffused or lost in that space. so, not having heard it myself, i try to glean some meaning from these pieces of prose poetry. of course, it was a similar process that led me to think that the hd700 would be good for what i listen to, and in that judgement i was correct. so i'm not convinced the hd800 would be a step up for me.
please tell me your impressions of it in comparison to the hd700.
edit- just looked at your profile. your musical tastes are similar to mine, but i don't see the hd800 among the several sets you list. have you spent much time on the 700 and the 800? do you think any of the 'phones you have are preferable, and if so which ones and on what basis?
