I don't have the UERMs but from what I heard the HD800. Not hard to drive, but very similar signature from what I've read.

I've had the HD598's and were super disappointed in them greatest disappointment in my audiophile experience and the reputation of Sennheisers is them all sounding very similar except for very minuscule increases in performance the higher end you go.

 

I was thinking maybe the Beyerdynamic t5p, Dave seemed to have a high opinion of the t1's detail, but haven't seen a good review of the t5p, I want something very detailed and analytical.

I don't think its fair to compare the 598 with the 800... its like comparing apple earbuds to flagship CIEMs

I think we all agree this is a great review.  This is the first review I read as a new Head-Fi member.  That was a few years ago.  We also agree that it could be updated w/ new HP's.  However, there are good reasons why David hasn't updated it.  He has posted his reasons on this site.

 

You can find reviews of the newer HP's around the site, and good discussion on the threads.  Enjoy your time here, and your music!!

 

Cheers,

maybe not, but i think dislike for the 598 is a good reason to be hesitant to buy the 800. Maybe one day i'll try someone else's 800 and like it a lot and buy it.

Altough this is my first post on this thread, I've read the review so many times over the years. What a great piece of work. 

 

Never gets old this one, just like some headphones in the review ;)

Joined Jan 2014 and this is your first post??? You are careful with your words. But very accurate, "Battle of the Flagships" was (and is) an epic documentary.

I'm just wondering how would Focal Utopia ,HEK ,Sennheiser HD 800s ,fit in this epic headphone comparison?

post #5574 of 5575

This needs to be updated with new headphones and adjusted to new prices!

Wow, what a review! Thank you David.

 

I'm now working my way back through the posts to try and find information on the HE400 successors (I have read bit on other sites).


Sadly I can't test anything I'm considering buying where I live (UK), so I may just have to take a punt.


At the top of my list is the HE400s and HE400i (in no particular order yet).

Just behind those are the HD650 and HD600.
