post #10321 of 15397
Although it will be a chase to try and find the best amp for the hd800. The price for them is almost a bargain
At list price. And for me the HDVD 800 as amp only is end game for these headphones anyway .
In balance mode anyway. Is anyone hear useing the senn amp ?

yeah. won't see new prices that low again. but the used market is slowly coming down. i also got one for $1100 that is absolutely mint, and i've seen it advertised for cheaper in the f/s forum.

From bay bloor radio.
But truth is when you call any headphone store and ask for an insane price they will give you the best Deal.

For example, I called ncix and ask t1 for $720 CAD including tax and shipping
they cpunter offered for $999.

And we settle for $899. wink.gif

Always try to make some deal. wink.gif

Agreed I just recently purchased my HDVD800 Amp/DAC new for 1699 negotiated, and my HD800 for $1299. I made multiple calls to different online resellers and went with the best price, mom always ask, you never know.

I thought Sennheiser was getting strict with their pricing now. For around $1200-$1300, I might as well consider it new.

Yeah CAD has been ****. Making buying from US useless for the last few months. In the meanwhile, I've been messing with colorware and and came up with these three variations:

 

A) http://www.colorware.com/showproduct.aspx?ProductID=289&SEName=sennheiser-hd-800&c=3en-254qg%7C3eo-257pm%7C3ep-259yg%7C3eq-25ckg%7C3er-25fjg

 

B) http://www.colorware.com/showproduct.aspx?ProductID=289&SEName=sennheiser-hd-800&c=3en-254qg%7C3eo-256wm%7C3ep-259yg%7C3eq-25ckg%7C3er-25epg

 

C) http://www.colorware.com/showproduct.aspx?ProductID=289&SEName=sennheiser-hd-800&c=3en-254qg%7C3eo-257pm%7C3ep-259yg%7C3eq-25ckg%7C3er-25epg

 

 

I tried to pick something different than the red, blue, black and white common design. Only changing the colour of the mesh and the hinge. Both A and B use the same colour for both pieces while C uses one of each.

 

I like A and C over B. Just something for fun now. Might pursue it down the road after auditioning the HE-560 when they become available along with Stax.

 

EDIT: Just realized I didn't touch the gloss vs matte settings. Matte will probably better suit those colours.

Now you need to get some balanced cable for your new HD800's and you are all set.

I like the direction your going here. It gives them a kind of retro look. For my preference I like 'B' the colors are more subtle and blend nicely. I like the others too, but I'm not sure how contrasting that brown will look in real life.
