Why would you assume the "Message" is at fault for the inability of the "Messenger" to deliver it more accurately. A lot of people

have it backwards in what they attempt to "fix" first.

... or maybe the messenger just isn't polite and tells it like it is.

Pure truth, plain and simple, no decoration, no fluffy stuff. There are always two sides to a coin ;)

Nah !!! Sennheiser's truth is actually additive of what you're hearing on recordings, but in many music genres these additions aren't

problematic "additions" as they're not heard.

 

I know what sounds are likely to come from Orchestral instruments being played & how they're likely to "excite" the space they

were recorded in. Trust me when I say there is a lot of resonance that is interfering with what was recorded, but it only matters

if it masking "ambient" information, that you know is there !

 

There may be be two sides to a coin,but one of those sides may not be as up to par as the other

With my music preference I am quite OK with the message that the HD800 is telling me. If it's painful, I don't want to listen to it of course:D

I visit concerts quite often (last night: Keith Jarrett, Carnegie Hall) and I do compare what I hear at home to these live events.

For me it's close enough to forget about the equipment and being captivated by the musical performance.

The HD800 is just for people who can handle the truth....
