Gotta give em credit though, they've managed to become a reference level pair of headphones of what you don't want to listen to.

Sounds like you have successfully elevated yourself to the top 10 % most knowledgeable members in this site. Sorry, can't help the dig, but I am sure the building process is an amazing fun ride!

You're most welcome!  Ears and opinions certainly vary, but I figured I should chime in given the hundreds of hours I spent with a woo 3.  I'll look forward to hearing which way you ultimately decide to go.

Indeed he has!  http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/marvelously-addictive-bottlehead-crack  As have the guys at headphonia, as has Guttenberg, etc.

Touche!  Then again, after 5.5 years of following this forum, and posting periodically, I would posit that this really isn't a very high bar.  Head-fi gets ~110k page views per day.  If you are a regular reader and have a basic functional knowledge of circuits, or have ever attended a meet and listened to a wide range of gear, or have ever built a piece of diy electronics, welcome to the club ;)

Got my chart today. Shows a bit of a rise around 6k which is probably why I am having issues with mine:

Out of interest is there much variation between the graphs of different HD800's?
post #5621 of 14001

Just received the first two of three new toys -- the HD800s and Bifrost. 

 

The WA6-SE comes in Friday. I knew I couldn't judge the HD800s fully until I got the Woo, but there's no way I wasn't going to plug it into my O2 amp and try. At first it was a bit of shock to my ears -- I wasn't sure what to think about it. It wasn't necessarily bad; it was just an entirely different sonic experience than the HD600s. I gave my ears a break and enjoyed the new Bifrost through my existing HD600  system. It sounded fantastic. 

 

After enjoying the 600s, I decided to go back to the 800s. I went straight to music I had heard a million times, and the break made the difference. Although I can still see the limitations of the O2, it still shows off the incredible attributes of the 800s. The biggest thing is imaging. I didn't even know what that word really meant until spending a few hours with the 800s. It's overwhelming to listen to your favorite music and get such a powerfully unique experience -- almost like the first time again. 

 

I'll limit slobbering praise until some more time. 

 

Can't wait for the Woo on Friday.

it does take some time getting used to the hd800 sound. when i went from the hd650 to the 800 it took me a week or so to starting liking the 800

The O2 is a fine amp, especially for the price. The tone and texture is very good as is sense of space. The problem I had with it was dynamic contrast was shallow and it sounded a bit tight at times. I wouldn't expect a great deal of improvement with the WA6SE, except the dynamics should be much improved.

Indeed it is a great amp. It certainly serves the purpose of clearly presenting the music and acting as gain on a wire. I expect the Woo to smooth out things more than change the already incredible sound of the 800s.

Thank you for this! I've had mine for 3 weeks now and forgot to request a chart. I know you said a few days but do you recall the exact number of days till you got the chart, 2-3? Thanks again.
