Think that the 800s would be reduced in price if this happened?

Actually I spoke with Axel at Sennheiser myself.  He confided that the upcoming (spring 2014) HD850 will include a trepanning kit.  The new 18mm drivers will be implanted through the cranium, behind each ear.  Finally, a single, 43mm sub-harmonic enhancing driver will be implanted in the rear or top of the skull.  This wireless system will run on the 2.8khz Kleer system, and link to Sennheiser`s new 24/192 streaming system.  The antenna will be a few hair plugs, positioned where ever the user wishes.

FINALLY! I have been waiting for Sennheiser to remove that last bit of veil between my brain and the music!

I helped Sennheiser design the new flagship, and you have completely misinterpreted these documents. (Frankly, I'm concerned that you were able to get hold of these at all, I suspect the R&D database may have been hacked!) 

 

We wanted to dramatically expand the soundstage for the new phones, and merely changing from SE to balanced connectors just wasn't going to do it.  So we have designed a new connector which plugs directly into the artists' brains! "From the mind of the musician and right to you!" (TM).  The attached documents show some of our artists being fitted for the connection, all for your listening pleasure.

 

Plus, we extended the bottom end.

In that case, I'll pass! Thanks for saving me money

A Sennheiser rep told me that meier audio sell ex demoed headphones and that the prices on there site are low because they were heavily used in stores and then re-sold. I presume this is ********. Does anyone have any info on this?

are those legitimate and new? 

post #6059 of 12149

I'm sure any distributor would state that they were 'ex demo' if they were. It wouldn't be worth the risk otherwise. 

post #6060 of 12149

yes, but ask the sellers, cos part of the stock may be demos from their retail store
