The lowest possible retail price is 10% off the list price. Otherwise, warranty is void.

HOLY &***, I actually saw that price on Amazon Prime about an hour ago and my first thought was clearance for a new model. Then I realized it had to be an error and was fixed.

That's nuts. I had them in my Amazon cart but ended up ordering from ttvj. Today it's that price! But not available?

didnt see this deal - oh well....

post #6952 of 24367

I'd be interested to see if anyone actually was able to get that price...

Hopefully they ship the orders for the people that ordered.   Too bad I wasn't online at that time to purchase.  I love my HD800.  The sound is superior to the HD650 and HE500  that I have.  The imaging and soundstage is unbeatable.

Damn from price history it looked like a declining trend like the T1 and I waited on it. Looks like I should have forgone my budget for a minute. Oh well maybe in a few years

My HD800s arrived today.  I am pairing it with a Decware CSP3 + Taboo.  Having never heard the HD800 but reading some I was mainly worried about bass quantity and brightness.  I was looking forward to detail and transparency.  Nothing to worry about :p.  Bass is perfect for my tastes.  I listen primarily to jazz trios where the bass is always going to be tight anyway.  I am going to enjoy the HD800 with my current amps and then decide if I need to explore.  The HD800 seems to pair well with tube amps.  I need to read through this read to learn about mods, cables, maintenance, etc.

Got my HD800 this week on sale, having had them on loan for about a month at the beginning of the year. Like others I had trepidation about the bass quantity and quality and the musicality of the HD800, for my tastes it seems I needn't have worried. Running single-ended off my Audio-GD Reference 10 I simply adore their sound. Question now is whether to get a balanced setup with a 4-pin XLR termination to run them that way off the 10...

 

In any case, I'm enjoying them now even single-ended, a nice counterpoint to my HE-6, which runs off a speaker amp with the 10 acting as a pre-amp. A single button push to change from speaker to HP output on the 10 makes switching an absolute cinch.

That is one fine amp. Cheers

Welcome aboard Komuso! Great setup. I had the CSP2+/Taboo MK III with the HD800's and it is an awesome combination.

I was incredulous when I realized that the best part of this thread is seeing everyone's vocabulary. I love fancy words, so nice hit on Trepidation smily_headphones1.gif

I find that those fancy words obfuscate the dialogue, and would rather we used the ubiquitous words as a general preference.
