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....

Well, it IS a 24" Display... so... ;)

 

The speakers are big, maybe thats why everything looks so tiny. 

 

I got two. The other one is on one of the smaller pics at the right. I'm a Graphic Designer, so I mostly work with both the Display you see there and my Wacom Cintiq on the right. :)

Is it? I'll be damned, it looks so small. Like a 22 or something. Must be big speakers and a pretty big desk that creates the illusion.

 

Now I see the smaller screen or the right as well! That's actually a pretty nice setup then! I'll take it back! ;)

you mean from this picture?

 

 

yeah I love white + teal. It's a small apartment, but I enjoy it as much as I can. :)

 

@TwoEars - thank you :D

The speakers are the Audioengine A5 - also something head-fi pointed me to in the past. ;)

The cintiq is mounted on an Ergotron-Mounting-System, so it's only there if I need it. Otherwise it's in the back. You can draw on the Cintiq like on papr with a pencil, just digital and in (for example) Photoshop

(or you could just use it as a secondary youtube-monitor ;) )

That's a beautiful and well organized room.
