I can confirm that they do indeed sound very good. Once you've cleaned up the output a little :P

Camoooooooon thursday, it'll be nice to finally get the HD800's to a good volume, that and see if it breath's life back into the ol' HD590's that I've loved for so long.

 

have yet to find a fix for the girlfriend who complains that the headphones drown out her normal speakers hahaha

I get that same complaint too. I bought her some Grado 60s in hopes that she would like something louder and more engaging than macbook "speakers". Nope, they spend all day sitting on the bookshelf with the macbook cranked up to 11.

She's taken the 590's, but since their open back I still get the same complaint :|   thankfully our house should be done in 8 months at which point I'll find a distant room! *grumble*

It may be a knock off but it's only $10 cheaper than it should be. I'm sure it's just 18mm pine plywood cnc'd and then glued.

Got them today. First impressions i know will differ from a nice burn in but initially not as deep as the LCD 2's but the bass is tighter and everything is very controlled like many have said. Very neutral. Soundstage on the HD800 make me feel like im listening to surround sound speakers. Dolby Digital 7.what? Highs are way smoother and more detailed than the LCD 2's. LCD 2's i had to crank way up to hear the highs and mids sometimes because of the overwhelming warmth in certain songs. I like warm but the HD800's are so well balanced I can hear absolutely everything without straining my ears at higher db. These things are definatly not for classic rock. The cable that comes with them is amazing for a stock cable. Audezes stock cable broke in 5 months just by normal ware. Sennheiser takes the build quality award. Although they both have plastic parts. Nothing is made like it use to be sorry folks. Coming from the LCD 2 i feel like i have nothing on my head. Now I know what you guys are all boasting about. Or so i think...will post updates in 50 hours on the HD800's.
