Oh, they're very real, and they live in your internet...   And if you take the time to feed them, they'll be happy to explain why Beats Studio are clearly superior headphones to the HD800... very_evil_smiley.gif

Dubstep radio all the way, the clipping effect makes it sound so realistic man! Wubwubwub~

I love earthquake simulators!

These would have definitely benefited from plusher and thicker pads. I don't know why they made the pads so thin.

+1 although I think we are talking minor adjustments -- from my own experience. I wonder whether that would have impact on the sound? 

post #2811 of 17736

a very good question also :)

 

I asked the rep if I could get better pads and he was not particularly helpful :)

post #2812 of 17736

Driver distance and pad wear absolutely affect results.  Even when the shape is similar but the material is changed, the freq resp is very different.  Ala HiFiMAN cans.

If I get an HD800, is there a reason to go with the Schiit Valhalla over the Schiit Lyr?

post #2814 of 17736

Yes, no, maybe?  I haven't heard either but really need to get my hands on an OTL amp one day.

After being a longtime HD 650 user, today I have finally joined the HD 800 club.

Totally not surprised there, enjoy.

Anyone know of an OTL amp that doubles as a preamp AND disables the preout when headphones are in?  Manual switch or switched by the jack just as good.

Welcome to the club!...You are the new guy, where are the donuts?

 

Seriously you are going to be very happy with them.

That sounds like my impressions the first time I heard them although at meet conditions it was still very good :)

 

My HD800 stands alone right now as every other full sized I tried  having next to the HD800 wasn't as good to my ears.
