Not what I meant.  Apology if you took it that way.  I do agree with you about HD800 making it less "tolerable" though.   That's when I put on HE500 and continue listening.  :beerchug:

I try to listen to it even on my car stereo when it comes on the radio, it is still impossible to listen to with that crazy distortion.

It's definitely nice to have more forgiving headphones around. I try to remember all this is about the music, sometimes I get carried away for sure.

The Nightvisions album is a great album. On the HD800's it sounds great , through the DX100 as well as the C4. We can tear apart track after track album after album for it's apparent lack of recording or mastering quality but does that result in us enjoying our favourite music more?
Just sit back and have a positive experience, you've got a pair of HD800's on for God's sake!
Appreciate them or sell up!smily_headphones1.gif

Well this makes four straight nights that I've stayed up past 4am listening through HD800 since the day I got them, and I got work the next morning each day other than new years day. You can probably guess I like them.

I had listen to this wonderful headphones and the sound amazing for me. Still dont have the audiophile ear to hear the difference.. yet..

Neat trick, I find every aspect of the HD800 improves when I wear them properly. :rolleyes:

 

I realized the headband wasn't sitting squarely on my head (more at an angle). When I made the adjustment, the whole sound tightened up. My rig still isn't quite right for them (highs too harsh, a bit of muddiness in the low mids), but the fun factor and imaging with them improved a lot, despite the imperfections.

You don't need special ears to hear they're good. Audiophiles don't have special ears , most of them look pretty normal

Heres a funny one.. one of my students has a friend (both in high school) who bought the HD800s because he assumed that at the price of $1,500, he would be getting one of the best headphones in the world. Hes not wrong about the HD800s being one of the best, except that was a lucky guess and he actually doesn't know much else about audio. Currently running his HD800s off his iphone/PC audio jack..

Lol. Well, Ive been called a "retard" because I spent 1k+ on headphones that he believes sound exactly and no different than his 40.00 skullcandy because he has no idea that Im plugging the HD800 into a amp thats hooked up to a dedicated source. He thought the only source ever to exist to mankind up to that day was the 3.5mm jack of the computer. I almost jumped off a cliff that day.
