I like what I hear though.  Listening to the T1 on the WA 6SE right now. To morrow I will listen to the WA2

 

The LCD-2 with WA6-SE and 596 should be very nice. it was my favorite combo next to the T1/WA2.

Congrats on the HD800. If you are willing to try a very well recorded acoustic jazz set which really showcase what the 800 can do, try the new cd by the New Gary Burton Quartet, featuring an all star line up including Julian Lage. This record has superb, accessible music which sound stunning.

  that Richard Bona album is really amazing on headphones especially track 3,4 and 7.

Dear all,

Are the cable connection in the headphones slightly loose and move a little on its socket? I read it is normal, just want to confirm.

Congrads Cabbage :beerchug: The HD800 are just a step above the T1.  Hearing is believing.  A well recorded piece of audio comes alive with these HP's.  The old CD's I have come to life.  Tonight I was listening to The Cars "Heartbeat City"  the keyboards and synthesizers so light and musical, can't wait to hear another CD, very addicting.

 

Gladwell may be next on my agenda.

My computer crashed a few days ago randomly so I haven't been able to test with my music but using iTunes store samples the HD800 is slightly better than T1 but I'll definitely need a tube amp because they lack a bit of bass on the Soloist.

Hi guys,

Once I told you that I purchased HD800s at 800 USD from Amazon.com.
It was fraud!!!
I was dealing with Amazon.com, and actually I was dealing with fraud.
Even though every step of transaction, I confirmed by emailing to Amazon and at the same time I verified the mail address of Amazon.com.
However, I lost 800USD!!!!! mad.gif

My trusted Amazon.com has changed their face.
I am very disappointed who has been a faithful client since 13 years ago with annual purchasing around 10,000 USD.

Please be very careful when you dealing with Amazon.com.
Fraud can be started with auto-confirmation from OFFICIAL AMAZON.COM.
Amazon will welcome you when there is no problem, but when you are in trouble They never respond to your cry.mad.gif

Did you buy DIRECTLY from amazon or a third party seller? There is no way amazon will directly sell a NEW pair of HD800s for just $800 due to Sennheiser's strict MAP.

post #6690 of 18537
it was a third party dealer, who was supposedly controlled by Amazon.
The seller opened the storefront on Amazon.com.
I might publish all my email chain for the case for the protection of head-fier.
