Thank you all so much! :D

And You've got one of those aeron chairs.

 

So  have I.

 

It's not bad, but I wish I'd spent the money on a pair of HD800s!  :confused_face:

post #10383 of 13408

Haha, yes. It's actually the successor to the Aaron Chair. It's the Embody Chair by Herman Miller :)

 

The chair can be pretty comfy 

 

But I bought it a few years ago, and my old chair died because of one of my "bigger" friends. After that I only had a little stool. Not good for my back, and since I was really hoping to buy the Embody Chair someday... so I bought it. ;)

(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. :)

 

Beautiful image - thanks for sharing it, as well as the other excellent work on your flikr page!

 

I love your hp stand as well.  Would you mind sharing the make/model?

I bought a headphone stand once, but then I laid my headphones on the desk. :rolleyes:

I do that with my T1 but a bit scary with 800 unless there is something soft underneath.

Same here lol, I have no problem putting my T1 on my desk but for some reason I'm scared to do the same with the HD800.. Maybe because subconsciously we think the HD800 is more valuable?

Not that, I am scare of scratching the paint job lol!  I have seen early HD800 demo units at shops with paint work all scratch up....

Thanks!  Wish there was a US seller though.  Amazon prime has totally ruined me.  I now feel tortured if I have to wait more than 2 days for anything.

This alternative works better when you don't have a 4 year old running around who has taken to demanding head time with your hd800's.  A stand placed at the back of my desk seems to have some deterrent effect on small grabby hands, even though she could easily climb up if feeling determined.  But I value the aesthetics regardless.  An attractive stand turns your phones into an interesting item on display rather than just clutter on your desk.

post #10394 of 13408


Hi,

 

I bought it from below link on Saturday evening and got it delivered today in Abu Dhabi sent from Hong kong, they marked it as gift so I avoided the customs and tax, ttl usd 1150 which is not to bad considering Amazon takes usd 1499......

I just registered the phones on Sennheiser web site and activated the 2 year warranty now I just need to await the frequency response chart which they stated in their automatically reply would be sent in a few days...

 

:)
