this is a high end thread?

 

Seriously a $1500 HP driven by low end amps, I'm not trying to insult anyone, but when I said 5-10K as more of a potential end amp game for the HD800 I was serious. 

^This.....Still, it does not mean you cannot have decent performance with lower end amps. Top end Sennheiser's (HD650's & HD800's) scale very well and reward the listener when they improve the chain. I love mine, but it took awhile to get there.

The mentality of spending more and more and more just to have "high end" stuffs, IMO and experience, is so yesterday.  Worse, looking down and doubting the fact that something costing much less could potentially be as good is just pure ignorance.

 

Just my 2c.

This needed to be said.

 

Price isn’t synonymous with performance (not anymore at least) and as the headphone/headphone amp market rapidly expands, innovative companies (like Schiit) are creating high performance products to exploit the vacuum that once existed between entry level/consumer products and the high-end market. This new market (The quality products for increasingly competitive prices market), is just beginning to heat up, so everyone should happily anticipate better and more feature-rich products for everyman prices: this is the age of open-source tech and internet direct sales, after all!

Has anyone who does not consider the HD800 bright at all ever tried a pure silver cable and compared it to stock?

 

I would appreciate your comments.

The Silver Widow from Toxic Cables is a great match with the HD800's.

what about Wywire RED and Black Dragon V2 from Moon Audio?  Or Silver Dragon V3?  are they good?

post #13301 of 17729

Does the GS-X MK2 are the best pairing with HD800 in its price range? How's its single end phone out compares with its balanced phone out? 

 

As my Hugo DAC only have RCA output so I'm confusing wether I should use single end or balance of this amp...
