How is it possible to know that the HD800's are underpowered? only by weak bass?

It's a red flag. But doesn't mean it isn't doing well in the other part if the spectrum

Anyone who has 220V?

The hd 800 are dificult to describe without hearing it. The headphones when done well are a pinical reference headphone. Wrongly they are everything you hear about them negative. . Sibilant , thin , Brite and all,the other bad things. When done well,they are startling . The same is true with the he6. Very good heshone when correct. There are amps some say are fine for the HE6 , the hdvd800 or the wa22. They are not at all. But watch and read how I get told I am wrong in this thread. But the he 6 is much easier to pickup out when it's wrong. It is thin , shallow , Brite. .

Just saw that and looks to be good price used. I'm currently using bottlehead crack + speedball with HD800 and absolutely loved it. I wonder if the raptor trumps it

Excellent news.
I'm waiting to try the HA-1 with both HD800 and LCD-X. Wondering how much different in SQ compared to my WA7 if running balanced from HA-1.
The Nordost Heimdall 2 cable is also in my radar. Already message Nordost through their FB page on the availability of this gorgeous looking cable.

I guess , it was he cool,way hahaha. I have read a little about him that he did not like to talk or interview . And would curse people if that asked him questions. Not sure if any of it is true though .

I guess, that is part of being a genius and keeping yourself protected at the same time.

He had more than his "fair share" of racial bias and encounters with police that he supposedly had stolen his "master's car".

I better don't want to know how many times he heard the n-word.

I just recently bought a couple of his CD's. I did see him live once at the beginning of the 90's must have been his last tour ... sadly.
