The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread - Page 823

post #12331 of 15403

I'm using the HD800 with the v200 and v800 dac. This combo is very good. I wouldn't call it smooth as it is very detailed imo. But I'd like to hear the HDVA600 + v800 pair as well. Perhaps this combo is even more detailed with wider soundstage. Also I have not heard the v200 on any other source, but from what I heard the v200 really shines with the v800 dac.

I'm waiting to get the first impressions on the new v281 HPA. Excited about the balanced output and how it compares to the single end output of the v200. Basically the overall improvements to the v200.

 

My other headphone is the hd 580. It's used mostly at the office. I wouldn't dare to bring the hd800 to the office in my backpack.

I used a felt shoe bag for my beige Sennheiser 598s, only to have its brown color rub off on the beige edges of the headphone over time. Fortunately in this case, it matches the ear pads, but I would suggest caution in using shoe bags.

To carry my HD800's to the office and back I use the case my Audeze LCD-XC's arrived in. Admittedly it's an expensive method of picking up a good carry case!

I bought a pelican case from Amazon that cost much less.

Yes it might be expensive, but you own some of the best cans available. I plan on getting the HD800 and the Audeze LCD-XC, sometime next year.

I have the Audeze case just for my HD800 but have yet to use it. A little over the top but it's nice.

The hippo case was out of stock when I ordered it, but I was able to get it in a bundle with a stand and the hippo biscuit. If you need a stand that is.

Hi guys, after extended listen, I think the Anedio D2 is a better match for the HD800 than the Hugo.  Although Hugo is a good source, D2 seems to do a better job.  I'm guessing integrated DAC/Amp do well with HD800 like somebody has stated earlier.

I think that V200 while decent is not good value for the price. It competes more against the amp section of $500 range audio gd amp/dac, or even Schitt Vali.

With 1.5k you should consider paying a bit more for the audio gd M9 for SS or woo wa22 for tubes. Both imo are a way better than v200.

What DAC are you using with the Hd800?

I'm using the M-DAC ATM. 

 

Oh and how does the Master 9 compare with the HDVA 600?

Anyone experiencing problem with the headband doesn't hold the cups in position?  Or that a piece of white foam coming out between the gap when extending/ retracting the headband?
