The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread - Page 236

Of course you are right with the HD800 being "a clear window",but even the unEQed sound of the same piece of music sounds already different depending on whatever system it goes through.All sources don't sound equal.
For me it is the best headphone I had so far and I am just playing around with different configurations to really reach its potential(in a subjective way).

Well I've been doing it wrong... I've been switching headphones instead of moving around EQ for more bass or upper mids, etc... - all kidding aside it's how you want to listen to it so tweak on my friend and enjoy "your" perfect sound on the darn near perfect headphone.

I would like to share my experience with hd800 (about 3-4 months since purchase). Sometimes the treble bothered me on some recording, sometimes it not. I've tried to eq it a bit (3-4db), but it seem the air around vocal seem reduce as well.

I read somewhere that jitter effect most in this frequency region. So I start experimenting on jitter reduction, using audiophilleo, audiophilleo with battery mod, jkenny mk3, jkenny ciunas and finally settle in with my friend sonicweld diverter (he bought a dac with good usb connection). When I progress with converter, I noticed that the more I progress, the less I bothered with this frequency region. I also exprimenting with usb cable and bnc cable, some better and some make it worse until I settle with my current one.

So I come to the conclusion (IMO of course) that the problem with hd800 in this treble frequency might being increase by jitter. Once we minimize these, we might not have an issue??

I'm quite curious whether anyone use a good analog as a source to feed hd800 and still have a problem with this frequency. Sorry for the rambling as well.

I use The Sonicweld Diverter as well.  Also about the intent of Senn, I heard they tested using the Violectric V200 amp which i use as my second choice out of four home amps/one is a transportable though.  My primary is the Zana Deux and you can kind of tailor the sound with different tubes, so many colors in the rainbow.  There intent was to make a flagship headphone and in that they succeeded of course.

Just put my daughter for a nap and put my HD800 of F3 on. When the music came on I literally thought that I had the computer signal going into my speaker rig for a second there and reached to my receiver to turn down the volume, so that my daughter can sleep. Needless to say, the volume did not decrease. This mirage did not last long, but it was long enough to make me think -- DAMN THESE ARE GOOD HEADPHONES!!!

Hey everyone, looking for a better EQ for my HD800's. Right now just using the one that comes with Foobar. Anyone have any suggestions?

Try this, it really works with the HD800, Follow the install steps and try the different settings, It will make your HD800 sound amazing. you can also Conver your music to flac or other format and take it with you on the go, with the same settings.

I'm not a fan of dolby headphone, although I didn't try the eq correction suggested.
