Holy hell, these are beautiful, AND velour pads? My money, just take it!

For $250-300, I'd hit it...had I not already owned the HE-400.

I kinda wish they had an exact closed version of it, as I already have the HE-400 as my open can.

Had a look at the UK site and after adding the Philips2012 coupon code it dumped it down by 70 GBP to only 200 GBP! Unfortunately no shipping from there to Canada. I got excited for a bit, then realized that shipping part.

 

Got to watch this trigger finger.

The HD800 is one of the ugliest things I've ever seen in my life. I wouldn't buy it even if it had the most amazing sound of any other headphone.

Really? I thought the HD800/700's looked pretty good.

If anything, I'd say the HD600/650's look worse.

This.

Does it live up the all the hype on this thread?

post #88 of 4950

There is no hype. Only expectations.

post #89 of 4950

I also must have missed the hype here.

post #90 of 4950
The hype would come in 3... 2... 1...

Nah just joking.

It would become hype right after someone post a positive first listen that's affected by New Toy Syndrome, lack of burn-in (brain or physical, choose your poison. No point derailing the thread with childish, derivative burn-in arguments) and someone misinterpreted it as the second coming of headphone Christ. Again.
