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.

Alright, so I am not an audiophile by any means, my entire experience of headphelia is just using cheap IEMs but after trying some expensive beats, I knew I needed something more. And if your like...

The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread - Page 535
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I believe Tyll of inner fidelity ranks the HD800 above the Abyss. He did an abyss review and didn't exactly shower it with praise while he still very much liked the HD800. Could be wrong here but that's what I got reading between the lines. But he's a HD800 fan...
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?
Hmm, I wonder how can we buy one of this cars by selling three or four pairs of headphones.
It only needs to be enough for the downpayment
