The one that costs less.

We're not still talking about children are we..? No No clearly not :D 

 

But yes, sound preferences aside. Comfort has to be the winning factor in this case.

Having a tough time here enjoying my hd800s and speaker setup. It's summer time and the apartment we are in doesn't have central air so this thing in the window makes noise as loud as a city bus...................  Not even once a week I can turn it off and enjoy them for a hour or so.

Eh I have a similar problem. I have a noisy portable air conditioner, and it's not so easy to appreciate the high end sound of hd800 with background noise.

A bit frustrating.

Being winter here in NZ it is rather cold in my music room and houses usually don't have central heating.A hot cup of coffee/tea and some good music helps to enjoy the HD800(funnily enough,I do like to swap with the HD600 from time to time to readjust my ears/brain and then go back to the HD800 after a while).
And NZ is Third World but that's a German speaking!

After some days my hearing gets used to the HD800 and I need a change of "sound signature" to reappreciate the outstanding qualities of the HD800.

I'd think  it's a good idea. I really  appreciate the hd800, when I switch from the hd595.

And soon or later I  get used to the sound signature, and it fail to "surprise" after some times.

I do that too, in my case, I swapped with hd650, lcd2.1 and many more. That's why more than 1 headphone is required smily_headphones1.gif
