post #6467 of 25155

does anybody know of any good carrying cases for the hd800? preferably hard so its protective, but not too big (otherwise i'll just use the original packaging box). i found this but was wondering if there are any other options?

That actually looks really nice for size and durability, i dont think you can beat that for the price. Great find!

The one I'm looking at is the Pelican 1300 or 1400 - rugged and watertight, with easy to customize foam interiors. You can usually find the Pelican cases at local camera stores, but lots of online retailers as well.

simi hard case (Click to show)

Jaben Hippo case large, they fit perfect with no mods needed.

Could anybody help me to decide which amplifier to choose for Sennheiser HD800? Considering Meier Corda Classic, Violectric V200 and Burson Soloist... Tube amplifiers are completely out of question for as I dont like tubes and need the amp to be easily transportable for headphones testing (I just happen to test various headphones for myself a lot so I need a versatile amp).

 

Thank you very much! :)

Senn`s own HDVA600 - sounds fantastic with HD800, fully balanced, german industrial art, and a really nice size.  Imagine 2 or 2.5 macbook airs stacked up: you could easily carry it in a laptop bag.  It`s also wired 100-240 volts internally, so you carry it abroad !

The amp is extremely expensive =/ I was looking at something like second hand V200 or Classic... Definitely up to 1000USD. But thank you very much for the tip!

Emertxe: I've used a Corda Jazz for 3 monthes with my HD800 and the pairing is very good. Slightly on the sparkly side of perfect neutrality but with great extension and detail. My next purchase is a used concerto . I read many opinions and Concerto/Classic seems to be a slightly more bodied and smoothed upgrade from Jazz. I'm sure the Classic does a great combo with the HD800. another good point is the crossfeed. It's very useful for old Jazz or rock recordings especially. 

 

V200 is a well known and appreciated option too but I never heard it . i don't know anything aout the Soloist. 

 

The question is What's your dac ? Jan Meier's gear is transparent so IMO for HD800 a slighly warm and smooth DAC is a good option. The fact is my Jazz allowed me to hear very well dac upgrades ;)

 I already have Concerto and find it great! That said, I am most probably selling it along with StageDAC to fully upgrade... My DAC is going to be the Ciúnas. Would like to try something a bit warmer than Concerto... That said, I am not sure HOW MUCH warmer.

 

I am really tempted to try the V200 but I am quite afraid as people mention worse soundstaging or even imaging with that amp... And I love the soundstage of HD800 (tried many other headphones but the Senns remain my favourite because of that awesome soundstage especially)!

You should consider the A18 amplifier from Yulong.
