I looked out of my window but I didn't see a troll. Isn't a troll an imaginary creature anyway?

For some reason I can ride all day with my main helmet, which is 1.6kg plus another 300g for the Bluetooth unit attached and also another 300g for my helmetcam with no problems. It might be to with the way I'm sitting in my study I guess.

can I suggest you try some can's with a different shaped ear pad? the reversed tear drop of the 590's seems ideal for all I've loaned my old phones to, I have a theory it's the spots that the padding rests on and the 800 encompasses a lot more real-estate around the ear than most other/cheaper senni phone's

 

maybe I should try fitting the HD800 driver into the HD590 housing ;) that would upset the masses!!!

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 #2814 of 14689

a very good question also :)

 

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

post #2815 of 14689

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 #2817 of 14689

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.
