Recently got my pair of HD800. After that I thought I should finally join this community. ;)

(Since head-fi.org is one of the main reasons why my pockets are now empty :P)

 

This are my beloved HD 800 <3

 

 

If someone like the shot, I can give a direct link to my flickr page for high rez Wallpapers.

I never heard better headphones than the HD800 before. I upgraded them from my HD 650 after more or less 7 years. :)

Welcome and sorry about your wallet :D

 

Also - the picture has potential but I'm not a big fan of the neon lights, I think it would look better without them...

WA6 are my next target :D

 

Well, I take feedback, so just tell me what you would like. I guess I'll make a dark Wallpaper aswell. Besides the neon on the bottom everything is editable (the Neon on the bottom part is actually real... so... ;) )

 

I used my desktop as the background. Here you can see the "neon light" in the back of my table:

 

 

The HD800 are now standing on the left besides my Display :)

Ha! When I first saw the picture I forgot for a moment that this is HeadFi and I thought that this was your listening / cinema room with a massive display and a life size statue. Then I saw the keyboard! :beyersmile:

Nah, I wish this would be life size, but nope, it's my working Desk :)

 

Funny though, never saw it that way

Hi guys, I'm going to share something from my personal experience here and I hope I won't offend anyone. I've just picked up a second-hand pair of Beyers T1, and the best thing about it to me is every single time I switch from the T1 after some extended period of listening, I re-experience that 'wow-factor' I get when I first try out and bought the HD800. It has been half a year, I've begun to get used to the HD800 and it no longer gave me the same chills it used to give 6 months ago and now, I can experience it all over again :D

 

The HD800 felt so effortless in comparison, next up should be to upgrade my amp I guess. Sorry wallet, but I'm going to have to murder you...

I have had the t1 side by side with an hd800. It sis a clear can for sure but it does not give the level of details the hd800 does or have the note thickness either. When doing a side by side with the hd800 and a stax rig the stax gets the details
But at the expense of the notes being a little thin. Some will say it lacks the bass compared to the hd800. But as it does it really is a cross the whole spectrum . If you want a all around can the hd800 is it. However if you want a can that sounds close to your speaker rig get a HE6. Either one is endgame but must be driven well. The hd800 is cheaper to obtain eutopia with.
62ohm what amp do you have now ? Also what dac ?

Currently using a WA3 with DacMagic 100 here, nothing really fancy.

The woo amps are good but need the tube,s rolled to something better and they come alive . Pm FRANKI
I own a couple of woo amps one being the woo WA5. He helped me upgrade the tubes even though I had the upgraded tubes from woo. The amp was greatly improved as soon as the tubes got hot in about 30 mins.

But I am glad you like the hd800 cans now. Enjoy them.

As a level 10 computer expert I also feel obligated to tell you that your monitor needs to be bigger! :D

 

I could never stand working on such a small monitor, I have one 27-inch and one 24-inch display at my working desk.

 

The more working deskspace the better! Plus you can keep head-fi, foobar2000, internet tv or youtube open on one display if you have nothing better going on....
