I doubt anyone has compared the two. The Little Dot is an older product and the Vali just came out last year.

Ummm..no.. dealer markup is about 30% so at best, Sennheiser is getting $1K per including their local distributors.. i.e. Sennheiser USA who has to make money, warranty the items, etc so Sennheiser corporate is getting a lot less.

I also bought mine in December and it's 25xxx. 2000 in 2 months would probably mean $3m a month from HD800 alone (assuming they are getting $1500 a pair), quite a lot of money indeed!

You're in luck. Just read this comparison of LD MkIII and Vali in the Vali thread:

No brainer.  Buy it and worry about an amp upgrade later.  That price is unreal.

Just went through the site, but I can't seem to find it. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Then on the registration page check the box...

Congrats and welcome aboard!

I just registered mine. Looking forward to receiving my frequency chart. These phones are so much more revealing than the HD700 and the soundstage is huge. Loving them for the few tracks I've played on them.

Going to spend a lot of time over this weekend listening.

Interested to hear your comparison of the Essence One Muses vs the HDVD800. Then use the Muses dac with the HDVD800 and see what you get.

Alright, I just ran a combination of pink noise and a logarithmic sine through the can for the last several hours. Just got through my first couple hours of play. Way too early to say anything, but I can't help it because one word has just been screaming at me. Resolving. This thing may really be it for me. More to come.

They are fantastic right out of the box. No need to burn-in, just listen to music with them and enjoy.

Can't help it. I've had AB experiences that have shown a noticeable difference and since then, I do it to everything. I'm actually gone on a trip all this weekend, so I'm just going to run them through the loop the whole time. Might as well if they're just going to sit there.
