The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread - Page 439

post #6571 of 25124

Just wanted to say that even on inferior equipment, lyr/bf, the hd800 is one of the best hp's that I've heard. The sound stage and resolution are simply mesmerizing. The comfort is supreme. I expected them to be somewhat bright and possibly harsh...they are not.

Okay, I concede. I won't be the first time that reputation did not match up the actual experience. :wink:

Get some Bugle Boys in that chain. The Globes are fun but they do stifle the HD800.

Have you tried them on your vintage steel yet?

Very good on the old Pioneers for sure. The 1280 gives them the best sound but has a light hiss.

Shame about the hiss... its the same for me on some of my vintage. Its crazy because then I plug my K701 (62ohm) in and there is no hiss at all :O 

 

This impedance thing still confuses me!

Did you think that at first listen?,  or did you have that "moment of clarity" like myself?

and there is nothing inferior about lyr/bf either so don't make it sound like such.

 

HD800 sound more than decent on my Fiio E17/E9K combo.

It took me a couple days to wrap by mind around the presentation. Then I was able to just close my eyes and get lost. Just a beautiful hp.
