Yes I agree with you palmfish. And when you have owned the SR-009, which in my book is the king of imaging and has a very natural sound stage, the negatives of the HD800 come out quite clearly. This was done when I owned both and compared them side by side. Interestingly enough, another headphone that shares the exaggerated width of the sound stage that the HD800 has is the JVC DX1000.

We`re talking about the simulation of live sounds, so the illusion is everything; there is nothing else.

The mids are so upfront that it works well with some movies, and great for dialogue-heavy scenes. Not my highest recommendation by any stretch-but still possibly my second favorite dynamic for music. wink.gif

Exactly, ad2k has the sexiest mids i ever heard, but for movies, i doesnt really reveal background crowds noises. i still use it once in a while for movie though, when i want to listen to that wet midrange effect.

Last night i listen to movie with hd800 and lehmann bcl, WOW, that realism and detail i couldn't differentiate with normal sound in daily life, i didnt know where my amp goes. Very convincing.
it makes my mustang p51 sound very colored, although still quite nice.

Thanks for clearing up something that was already obvious to me.

When my wife catches me with them on, she'll often ask if I'm communicating with the mother ship.

Ya, that was one reason I didn't give them any consideration for a very long time.
