I am sometimes bothered by the very very slight buzz of a fish tank filter clear across the house when listening to my HD800. if the TV or something is on, forget it. May as well put in my CIEM's.

I guess I'm "that guy". (The other kind)

Sometimes background noise can be an intrusion with me as well; It depends if I want to listen critically or casually.

Now that part does make sense to why you want to where them in public. If you said it that way we all would have under stood better. I have homes in two states. And live mostly in NYC. All I can say is we newyorkers stink for manners. People take ther children to restaurants and let them annoy others . Talk on the phone at movies and at Starbucks. . And I think it's why I do see so many people there with headphones. But the Bose or other closed back ones. It's not for the others it's to shut all,others out. He'll I do the same thing on the trains with my CIEMS,, so the guy preaching or the people playing a tune for money does not bother me. I am the guy in the seat with a crazy skull hat on and I am just left alone. Now down south. It is a whole other seen. People greet you , people will let you get out of spot while they wait. It's a much relaxed attitude. We newyorkers have become animals of sort. Not all as I am kind , but mostly get attempted to be abused.

Hi people,

Many are talking about the fatiguing trebel, but for me the fatigue come from the stereo bass. If I apply the crossover in Jriver when I feel tired of the headphones, the fatigue goes away.

The same has been already commented by another member, I think in this same thread. Try it, probably it will work for you as well, and if it does, you will percieve it imediately.

I beleave it was me that started the battle over EQ. And I a glad you tried it. To many people dismiss it without ever putting some good effort into it. There is a learning curve to everything.

I use the subtle crossfeed setting in jriver as well with the HD800. Occasionally the "normal" setting on an album with really hard panning (Beatles, etc) Although I don't find any fatigue without crossfeed. Has nothing to do with fatigue for me. I find it adds a touch more depth and "naturalness" to the presentation. For lack of a better word. It comes at the cost of a touch of width but the HD800 has width to spare.

I've got nothing against eq or crossfeed. I haven't needed eq really though as tube rolling nails my preferred signature with the 800's.

How does one get his hands on the Limited Edition Black HD800s? What is the story behind them?

From what I understand there is no LE. The pair that Jude has was given (or he bought it?) to him by Colorware which technically is a limited edition color (the Senn blue ring) they offered for a very short time. I don't think it is still available.

It's relieving to know that there is such a thing as Colorware, I guess I don't have to worry about my HD800's paint getting ruined after a few years anymore.

post #8278 of 24287


Me thinks this looks just like Jude's? I wonder if paint will affect the SQ?
post #8279 of 24287
It doesn't. We tested mine and it matched a few stock HD800s within manufacturer margin of error.
