Treat them right and they will last....Of course so great cables help too.  :D

Hmm...all the tales of chipped paint got me all paranoid.  I treat mine as if they were filled with nitroglycerin. 

 

Perhaps Sennheiser  changed the manufacturing process and the paint is more durable now????

I treat mine really well too.

 

The grey outer ring mesh is super delicate and easily shows any light scratches or fingerprints.. (too delicate to be exposed imo)

 

Other than that, I cant see any wear and tear showing with careful use.

Yes, it was 1984. What torture it is to have to wait, huh?

I put the box in the other room so I don't have to look at it....I can't wait to fire it up with the HD800's!

If Sennheiser were to bring out a HD850 what would you want from it?

Interesting, what would the planar tech bring to the party? More authoritative bass?
post #7859 of 19165

A rich mid range..  IMO

I think that sometimes , but then the HD650 has that and I find it to 'forward' , so I don't know if it would work and allow the soundstage to remain intact?
