How are you finding the Audiophileo compared to the Conductor's native USB?

The truth be known I have never tried the usb.I am a big Audeophilleo fan and given the issues with the Conductors tenor application of the usb I saw no reason to put myself through that.

Probably a wise choice. :) Maybe one day I will try a stand-alone interface to compare.

I've had the HD800 paired with WA7 for the last 2 weeks. Can't really compare the WA7 to any gear discussed so far in this thread, but to my ears this combo really delivers. It's for the first time that while listening my attention is not drawn to some flaws in the sound and I can just enjoy the music. I'll spare you all the talk about detail, smoothness, dynamics etc. - it's all there, as much as one can ask for considering the price tag.

I heard a pair of speakers this last weekend that made the 800's sound like toys. That and a old modified Adcom DAC that wiped the floor with my bifrost. Sigh. But I learned what detail is. I got right schooled.

That's how I feel about my speakers compared to my HD800.  What speakers did you hear?

What do you guys think of this color combo?

 

 

I'm thinking of either getting that... or a different color for the rings such as red, blue or white. Going to keep everything else matte black.

 

Also... any opinions on matte vs glossy for the 800's?

Most likely would go all matte black, but if I were to go for some different color, I would still be going all black and only get the ring around the mesh part a different color.... maybe yellow or red? What do you guys think? Heh.

My first headphones were the K702 Anniversaries which I returned due to a rattling issue in one of the earcups. Figured now that I have some more money saved up, I would go for a flagship instead. I currently have the FiiO E9K/E17 combo for an amp and DAC and would be running that with the HD800's until I can get a tube amp (most likely the Woo Audio WA7 because it looks super sexy and from what I've been reading, pairs well with the 800's.
That one might be mine. No way to tell from that picture though. I say go matte black. biggrin.gif

That certainly individual preference. I never like speaker presentation except a pair of Martin Logan or Sanders.

Matte black and then pick whatever ring color you want. I personally don't like yellow, but that's just me.

 

Really didn't like the gloss look, but I haven't on any gear, so again...just me.

I like this combo, and it makes sense somehow: yellow is a very bright color , in contrast with black.

 

Maybe I'd replace the black with some dark blue, and you'd get a very contrasted blue yellow opposition.

Aside from Colorware indicating that their gloss paint is more durable, I would definitely suggest the matte finish.  It just looks better.  Plus I've seen Maxvla's pair up close, and the matte finish still seemed significantly more durable than the stock finish.
