For your pleasure:
But why put yourself through 2 days of waiting...?! 10 mins for your gear to warm up is all you need! The headphones don't change! Honestly! Its a myth!!
I can't stop using exclamation marks! Someone stop me!!!
Agree.. didn't notice any change with mine also.. and no sibilance/treble harshness whatsoever
I think I noticed a change with mine.
I listened to them right when I got them and then I left them at high volume with some Massive Attack songs (both very low and high notes) for about 100h.
After that there was less sibilance that what I could remember from before.
Of course... this was no back-to-back blind test and I'm fully aware that my brain can play numerous tricks on me.
But I did think I noticed a bit less sibilance.
Which might have been real or not...
Would be fun if someone had two brand new HD800 that sounded exactly the same and tested burn-in on one!
Looking to upgrade my DAC and then amp later on. What are you guys recommendations in the $800-1300 price range DACs? Im looking for strengths in imaging, soundstage, and instrument separation without being too harsh, but not mushy sounding either. Im currently looking at the Matrix X-Sabre. Any other suggestions?
And can you hear a noticeable difference between 24/192 & 32/384kHz?
I have recently been made aware of Stefan Audio Art Cables(from the LCD-XC thread).From SAA website,I read the Positive Feedback issue 54 review 'after market Cable options for the HD800'
Worth reading, whatever Amp!?
I have the CD of "So - Peter Gabriel" & also the 24bit 48kHz download (from the link below)
There is a clear difference in the SQ between the 2. But this is not always the case , I have several albums from HD Tracks in 24/192 & I find no difference between that & CD.
Ah.. thought you were talking in general about 16 /44 vs higher resolution i.e. I assumed your contention was there is no use for resolution above 16/ 44
