With some gears (IEMs/Full-size cans; DACs; Portables), new releases are so fast and so frequent (dime a dozen?), before your shipment reaches the doorstep there's another announcement.

i wonder when we will see another flagship headphone?

You mean biggrin.gif outside the Buy-Sell-Trade Forum? Just funnin', magiccabage. But seriously, soon, as it is summer on our doorstep. And the year-end holidays need a lead time.

Hello everybody,

 

I have tried my Eddie Current Super 7 with the Woo WEE connected to the Sennheiser HE60. 

Comparing to my KGSS and SRM600 the soundstage is larger, more natural and organic sound, more foot tapping. The HE60 sounds very close to the HD800 in terms of soundstage but it seems more natural.

I just want to say thank you for aiding one of the most financially irresponsible decisions I've made recently - purchasing the HD800. This article helped me justify the purchase, as a lot of these models have so many varying opinions and some (Orpheus, K1000), I was unaware of...anything better than the HD800 was out of production and the Stax SR-009 is way too expensive, plus electrostats can't be used with my portable headphone amp. There is also Hifiman, but I have a something of a distrust of Hifiman products (made-in-China related, plus I have heard about the build issues...Sennheisers are built like tanks!) and I highly favor analytical or neutral sound.

 

I have heard the Momentums and HD650 with general displeasure on both (veil-related), so it was nice to read about a Senn that didn't have this issue. So far, I am in agreement about the neutrality of the HD800 and that is what lead me to purchase them after my audition. The tracking of the individual layers is gorgeous and the soundstage is amazing. Anytime I am not hearing everything in a recording is because I wasn't paying close enough attention, I can't blame the headphone. Also, I do not find the treble to be an issue with my current setups...Only 1 or 2 tracks I've heard and it was related to the cymbals (the recording itself was unnaturally bright).

 

Despite the price, I have no buyers remorse at all, as I now have both a fantastic sounding and honest headphone and likely, it will be my last headphone that I ever need to purchase. That is peace of mind right there. Plus, I do not have to save for years and years to afford an electrostatic set-up. Now my next buyers-remorse related purchase will likely be an amplifier upgrade for the HD800.

Ha! I thought this was going to be a spray against certain posters in this thread. I was looking forward to some fireworks. Kind of disappointing really. tongue.gif

It may be a host of things. but to the true audiophile it could never be construed as irresponsible..

Let's just say, the timing wasn't ideal...but I figure better to pull the trigger after the audition than to wait a couple months for my funds to replenish from my last couple purchases. Now I can use this great sound to help me dream of ways of saving up more $$$. wink_face.gif

 

I also didn't think it would be a Sennheiser that made me pull the trigger either. Personal surprise there.

 

And tbh pp312, I haven't even read the other 260+ pages of this thread. I imagine not everyone will agree with everything in the main article, but for relative newbs like myself with limited headphone exposure, it's a great starting point for information. I found the comments very neutral and unbiased. Just like the HD800.

Hehe. It's fine that you have not read those pages yet. Because purchasing headphones is just a gradual yet unending process. :p
