Does anyone use their HD800 with a modmic? I just got one last night but noticed that the magnet is being held against the headphone and didn't know if that had any ill effects. Some cursory research seems to imply that this shouldn't matter, but I figured I would check to see if anyone had any insight there.

Can't imagine it should matter, maybe on a theoretical level. But hardly on a practical one.
Sure, it hardly sounds its best like that but it can be done. Matrix M-stage is often recommended.

As the hd800 are extreme in detail and and having cheaper DAC and amp is looking for
An unhappy audio experience
I am sure I will get bashed now. But someone needs to be honest
hey Al.....I agree with you
I'm inclined to agree as well.
A cheap DAC/AMP can be a stopgap if you want to get the HD800 now and uprade the rest later.
But it's not so good if that's how you're planning to use it in the long run.
HD600/650 are better for that, much more forgiving.
No HD600/650 rig would touch it.
