That's what we all say... and then we find out that we have synergy problems with our gear and start buying stuff again. Oh, and of course... those new products are tempting!

Fortunately, synergy problems, I won't have to deal with cuz I already tried HD800 on my current setup before deciding to purchase.  You are correct about new products, though.  Self control, you must...:D

It seems easy to me, HD800 (comfort, price, and a good pair with HD650)  ;)

Not because I just bought one that I agree with pdrm360.  I went through the same decision making process.  I tried both LCD3 and HD800.  I decided to go with HD800.

Still loving my HD800 after four years with DNA Sonett. Excellent synergy.

Great to hear that you can find synergy and good equipment that is "old". We are very focused on getting "the new" and "better" gear all the time, while some "older" gear don't get too much attention even though they sound very good (and sometimes even better) than the new stuff.

Sorry, don't mean to hijack the thread, but thought this might be of interest to some here.

 

For those interested in making their own HD800 cables, we have reduced the price on our custom made HD800 connectors that we designed and had made over a year ago.

 

Price per pair will be just £20. This is nearly half the price of what you can expect to pay elsewhere.

 

This is the larger HD800 connector that we had made for our 18AWG cables. Picture below shows them next to some of the other HD800 connectors on the market and a smaller size of our own.

 

We also have a selection of 18AWG wires, also smaller diameter and anything else you might require to build your own cable.

 

For those not comfortable with soldering on to those tiny pins, i can do this part for you at no extra cost.

 

Shipping for any order is £3.50 UK and £12 international, with tracking and insurance. We also try any make sure that our international customers don't have to pay any further import charges ;)

 

Please PM me, should you wish to place an order.

 

 

 

vv We did respond to your email on placing an order and got no reply back.

 

It's up to you if you purchase from me or not, so let's not derail this thread :wink:

No thanks. I emailed you guys a number of times months ago to try to purchase/preorder a cable-and never received a response after maybe 3-4 emails. Fool me thrice...:ph34r:
