My friend just got a new HD 800. I have one from two years ago. These things sound way different. The new one sounds way way better! This is really weird! I guess Sennheiser has listened to the customers and made changes during the years.
The new one actually hass BASS!!! And it´s not bright at all and I don´t hear any treble peaks. Even the TH 900 is a brighter headphone now, use to be the other way round. The new HD 800 sounds absolutely great!
The old one sounds very bright and treble peaky and very very light in bass. The difference is unbelieavable! What is going on with Sennheiser? But I like what they´ve done.
I guess I´ll be buying a new HD 800 soon as well! :)
