The two HD800 I compared were plugged in the same rig.  They shared quite the same signature for sure. The Demo model what a tad brighter than mine though :D. A friend of mine was there and agreed with me. We tried to use the two HD800 in order to A/B my MG Head VS a trafomatic Head one and we perceived more brightness from one rig. then we plugged the two HD800 in the same amp ( the MG Head) and we could still notice differences. We stopped using the demo model immediately. Our interest was to compare amps not cans.  

Its possible that hes just being nice and agreeing with you so you dont look loony :p

 

 

Im just teasing :beerchug:

I personally think that there will be differences in hd800's. It stands to reason... No headphone is going to be identical, but its safe to say that the differences will vary. 

 

The only headphone that I've owned a few of has been the K701.. The 3 that I've owned have all sounded different.. This is my only experience of this, but I have no reason to believe it will not be the same for all headphones. If this wasn't the case, then Sennheiser wouldn't bother to keep record of your individual drivers for matching incase they ever need repairing. If they all sounded the same then any hd800 driver would do!

Were the AKG's all new? I know my pair(s) changed pretty markedly throughout the eternal burn in requirement for them. Just sayin'.

Lolz all around.

 

Niglejames-I really do intend on trying the M8 again in the near future. I could tell it was a fantastic amp-it was the M7's somewhat distant, 2D presentation that didn't mesh well at the time for me, with the already 'distant' presentation of the Senns. Definitely looking forward to pairing it again with the Eximus in the chain soon. Although I'll probably take a hard look at the Ragnarok at the same time, so we'll see. It really is nice to see you content for SO LONG with your AGD stack and various headphones-there's a lot to be said with that I think. Kind of like my ZDSE/HD800 combo was for the longest time.

What is it I heard somewhere that there's going to be a new flagship from Sennheiser?
