OK I've pulled the trigger. Mine S/N is 2**88 .. ... I can't judge about the bass (I've heard it before in a store, long time ago).. I just unboxing it and no proper amp at the moment. I am in Japan at the moment and will be here for the next few months. Sorry to hijack the thread but is there anybody live in Japan in this high end subforum? What is suggested amp for this baby other than HP-A8 which is available here (and cheaper of course just like the HD 800 I got just now :D) . I don't know if I can get nice tube amp here. Will send you guys later that kind of Frequency Graph from Senn.
Hmm... that's strange.
As a comparison: Yours above being a 2X,XXX model ; and here is mine being a 12,XXX model:
If you enlarge the image you can clearly see that the 6k peak on mine is noticeably lower and evolving more smoothly then your newer model - I thought it's the other way around as the newer ones supossedly improved in that matter. The lower frequencys are a bit louder too on mine, just hitting the 5db mark.
