well im pretty happy with my HE-6 right now and i would never consider getting an abyss + liquid gold, it definitely doesn't sound as good as it should.

Just shows how much personal preference plays a part at this level.


Even if the Abyss was better and would cost "only the same" as the HD800, I wouldn't want to switch.

Simple reason: weight.

 

Even before sound quality, comfort is a critical "must have".

At around 1.5 lb or 660grs (w/o cable) the Abyss is so heavy, I wouldn't be able to comfortably listen to them for an hour. That's a no go in my book. I am not sacrificing comfort over the last bit of SQ in return for a headache or muscle pain.

+1. I used to think SQ is everything and comfort doesn't matter, until I put an RS-2i on my head. I couldn't wear them for more than 5 minutes before my ears started to deform. Right after that moment, I changed my priority, with comfort above SQ.

Haha...no wonder you had to sell most of your headphones.

 

Do you think you will buy any of those models after you recuperate from the car expense?
