Agreed on all fronts, though I would temper your complaint about distracting treble levels. I think you are right about it, but it's very minor in my case. It's not 'wow too much treble' its more of a 'hmm that was interesting'.

Nice impressions!  You put me over the edge with the soundstage impressions, that's exactly what I'm looking for.  I've officially boxed up the HD700 and it's waiting for UPS pick up.  Will be going with the HD800, can't wait!

You are going to be amazed, believe me... It's really 3D as much as it gets with headphones, most probably!

It's unreal is what it is.  I was listening to an interview during a media day and hearing the surrounding interviews and crowd placed outside my head into the room was eerie.  Thought for sure my speakers were still on.

Terrific impressions.. I haven't spent any serious length of time with the LCD-2.2.. but all your thoughts on the HD800 virtually mirror mine.. particularly in regards to the treble, the natural sound, and bass.

Try putting a pair of HD650 on top of them if you want to hear "as 3D as it gets".

I've had GS-X and Balancing Act. BA is definitely the best I have ever heard the HD800, more holographic soundstage, better micro-detail.

 

I can't say I miss my old O2 mk1 or SR-Omega much with the HD800/BA.

You will be amazed how good the HD-800's are for gaming as well rolleyes.gif

Sometimes I even prefer them over my surround system for movies/gaming, the soundstage is just that good.

People tend to underestimate the power of stereo when it comes to pin-pointing audio sources from around you.

Good stereo beats terrible surround every day of the week.  I actually once upon a time had a near 20K surround setup that I curbed for a 10K stereo setup that simply smashed it even for movie watching.  And now my speaker rig is $2K /facepalm

After eagerly waiting for a little over a month, I just received in the mail a "20XXX" pair of custom-colored Sennheiser HD800's from Colorware. I would say they look absolutely gorgeous and i'm definitely going to have a some pictures uploaded for you guys when I have time.

 

Hoping you guys are in for some eye-candy.

Definitely, post them here! I prefer the original look over anything I've seen so far though (grey is my favourite colour). smily_headphones1.gif
