The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread - Page 470

post #7036 of 19164

Hey, Sennheiser, how come you don't respond to my emails asking for a loaner of your new flagship demonstrator electrostatic headphone to replace the Orpheus you are releasing next year?

 

I've checked my junk mail and there's no response from you.

 

I am deeply disappointed with your lack of response.

 

Just because I live literally on the other side of the world from Germany should not have any bearing in this age of fast and economical world shipping of goods, merchandise and chattels.

 

I await your answer by email or pm on this forum  with bated breath and eager anticipation.    Please don't spoil the end of a great year by your continued lack of communication.

CES is just around the corner and that is when Senn tends to release new stuff. They have discounted the HD700 and others, so perhaps there will be something new, though I doubt it will be an Orpheus successor

Fail. Wrong context all around. You're usually better than this.

Usually better?       I thought that was my best post this fast fading year.........

 

Just goes to show - humour as well as hearing is a very subjective sense.

Lol, as was mine. Good luck with the sales.

+1.....Then they buy it back later....

 

BTW, while I wait for a replacement tube on my Cary I am slumming with my venerable Denon AVR-5800 in 2-channel. I never used the HP on it way back when. It is really nice with the 800's. Way better than I expected. Granted it is a $3800 amp!

Cool! What's the output impedance on that?

Short Xmas Story :

 

I thought myself about selling my HD800 a few days ago :D .. Hard times and I need money for the next future monthes beacause my wife won't have any income during this period... I loaned my HD800 to a friend of mine but he finally choosed a Stax combo and gave me back My Senn. :cool: . i've ever bought a HD580 to replace the 800.

 

So, i called another guy who was really interested. We had a deal and I pulled out the HD800 out of its box in order to take pics to send to the buyer.... But I made THE mistake: the headphone was there on my desk so... I plugged it and listened to music while I was uploading pics. 

 

One hour later I called the buyer and told him I really can't sell it. :o   HD580 is ready to be sold. 

 

End of this Xmas Story :wink_face:

I cannot find any value for it Daniel. The manual does not list it and nothing turns up on my net searches. It does have Dolby HP. It generally sounds pretty good, but it does not have the fullness I am used to with either the Cary or the Decware. Interesting that the bass for my Vandersteen's is really something. Probably due to 200 watts vs 40 for the Cary. To me the Cary has more character and bloom vs the speed of the SS Denon. I am enjoying the variety but I'll be glad when my new tubes come in.
