Did, awaiting reply.

 

Just wanted to ask a simple question to the community on whether or not it was a removal thing.

Got my answer though. It's broke.

Now that I'm home at my desktop I can see these pictures better. The black paint on this part of the headphone is really quite bad.

Compare to colorware, same color, same area (pictures as good as I could get, sorry):

Well that's too bad. I hope it works out for you in the end.

Colorware did a really clean job on yours.

No, you did not. And no you did not give me the opportunity before smearing my name.

 

Furthermore, you didn't directly buy from me, you used a proxy buyer.

 

As I told your proxy ship the phones back to me and I'll refund your money. Otherwise, I'll be contacting Ic3.gov. 

 

 

 

 

 

And apologies for the dirty laundry.

I removed the so called name smearing, you can even check my previous edited posts (done so quite some time ago).

I only posted here to check if the headband was removable and who i got it from, which i took that info out later on due to common sense thinking.

 

As for the threat of contacting Ic3.gov, i do not understand how or why i am in the wrong.

You listed a "very mint condition" item but sent a product that has been partly disassembled like a transformer. If anything, you are sullying your own name.

 

Anyway, it is better if you contact me through messages rather than to make a statement here on the HD-800 appreciation thread.

 

Let's put this thread back on course and talk about the best tubes for the WA22 when using the HD-800.

You should have contacted me first, period. I'll PM you now.

*puts popcorn down*

 

BTW everybody-I purchased a WA5-LE to pair with the HD800s, and should be arriving this week. Can anyone suggest any tubes that are known to mate well with this amp and the Senns?

 

Dubstep Girl-maybe your WA2 suggestions transfer over well to the WA5-or not? I know you're always talking up the GEC 6****...

 

FWIW, I am receiving the stock tubes as well as the upgraded tubes that Woo provided to the original seller.

My best tubes for hd800 in a WA-22 are Western electric 421A, PSVane cv181t mark 2, and PSVane WE replica 274. Still need to try the sophia tubes though.

Wish I could have kept it. :/ Great amp-will be sorely missed. It's pretty difficult imo to find an ss amp that mates well with the HD800s. The Bryston, although not quite ideal-worked well enough to my ears-but I know from experience the higher end tube stuff seems to work wonders with the Senns more than any ss I've heard. Will definitely be posting impressions of the Woo-mainly in comparison to the ZDSE and Bryston-since those are the best amps I've owned so far. Should arrive this weekend.

WA5 - try EML or Mighty 596 rectifiers, and the best 6SN7 and 300B u can find. 

 

btw, i was just about to post this, but i think its more appropriate now than ever.

 

 

 

i just got Zana Deux #11 that i was going to try out before i decide to buy or not.

 

well i'm listening right now comparing it to the WA2 with GEC 6AS7G and OMFG.....the sound is almost IDENTI-fking-CAL!!!#!@#

 

like the zana has a little more treble but warmer in the mids, but its almost identical to the GEC with the WA2. i'm kinda shocked. they sound equal and i think performance-wise, right on par, no difference. maybe the ZD has slightly blacker background, can't tell difference, and maybe slightly better separation/soundstage, but its so small, i don't even think theres a difference.

 

the zana is amazingly good since i know how i rave about the GEC/WA2, but the fact that its identical just goes to show how good the GEC tubes are :biggrin: (this is with sophia 6sl7 on the ZD as well)
