I will listen to the GEC's everyday for a week and the go back to the 5998's and see if I notice a big drop in quality. 

 

If it anything like going from RCA's to 5998's I should notice the difference more over time. 


Yes, The difference is not big. I feel that, for vocal genres GEC is better suited for HD 800 , for EDM TS is better.

Thanks a lot.....man I can not wait to get Glenns OTL....it will be after Christmas before he can start on it....but it will be well worth the wait of a few months to get it.

Really stoked to hear it with my HD800

Umm. No! :veryevil: Most of my gear up until now has been tube, though not really high end stuff. Hit my end game with SS. Whatever your poison, enjoy the HD800 LOUD or soft.  Fabulous either way!!
