Hoping you guys are in for some eye-candy. 
Pics are certainly required!!

Alright, before my lunch break is over. I took a quick snapshot for you guys with the iPad. HD800's is a bit lengthy say so I call them "Stormtroopers" due to the color scheme. Up-close shots or hi-rez photos later, yeah? I enjoy looking at them just as much as listening to them.

Hard to tell on this crappy monitor at work. Is that gloss black on screens and arms and gloss white on the rest? Looks nice smily_headphones1.gif Very storm trooper-ish.

I've been playing with color combinations on the Colorware website for days now.  At this rate I'll never decide (though I do still plan to sell my HE-6 and LCD-3 before I take the plunge).

I must say.  They sure do a great job of painting the headphones..  I know you'll love yours just as much as I do mine.

 

Congrats..biggrin.gif

I really like the look of the Stormtrooper 800, looking forward to the hi-rez photos.

 

Also... my HD800's are scheduled to arrive on Thursday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  djflsadjfsdfjlkfjdskjf  biggrin.gif  Excited to say the least.  I think I will go drool over HD800 photos on google images now...

These seem to be extremely popular at the moment. 

 

Since I'm currently waiting for a replacement pair after Sennheiser failed to repair mine (sent it back with same problem but worse!) the dealer has told me they are sold out in the UK!!

 

And they'd sold >10 over Christmas...

 

 

No wonder they're over 20k biggrin.gif

Looking forward to see your impressions here! smily_headphones1.gif

 

After spending a week with them, they are only getting better and better to my ears... An ultimate dynamic headphone! That fenomenal 3D soundstage, separation, imaging, detail and comfort are really keeping me from all the other headphones (except SR-009 which cost too much). tongue_smile.gif

 

Still, I am glad I didn't choose them at the very beginning of my hi-fi road... I am now much more experienced to truly appreciate that I've finally found the headphone I was dreaming about.

Yeah I wouldn't have known what I had if I'd went straight to the HD800 in the beginning.  I started out wanting bass, next came my treble happy days, then I craved mids, now I'm hoping the HD800 put it all together in one nice package.  HE-500 was really close to the total package for me, just needed the airy soundstage and comfort of the HD700/650.

 

Maybe the HD800 will be my final stop for a while, I can then concentrate on building a system around them.

I'm thinking about getting the Sennheiser HD-800. I'm wondering how they sound with Ray Samuels Audio headphone amplifiers specifically the HR-2. Can anyone point me to reviews?
