I'm not sure it would delight them after they listened.

  • The stock cable is the best that I've seen on any headphone I've purchased. PIA when it comes to kinking but what the heck, I much prefer my Q and ADL cables.
  • Who reads instructions?
  • Mine didn't come with a factory tour of Sennheiser either, oh well.

HD800 are awesome headphones.

Sit back and enjoy! 

Just my POV :rolleyes:

This how I feel too. Just give me the headphone already, McDonald carrying bag? Oh well... I don't care. I've got some fancy boxes but they're all in my cupboard and never get looked at.

Well, you can always put your HD800 in the Beyer case right before the global conflict escalates. 

 

The anthropologists will think kindly of you.

Maybe they knew they needed something to entice interest? I really can't wait for your impressions on that one.

A lower price would have enticed me.

Seriously. As much as I love the AKG house sound, I don't see how they could possibly be worth that price when the K712 is so good for so much cheaper. Considering the harsh criticism it's gotten from trusted reviewers, it hard to trust anyone's impressions in that thread right now.

 

Sonido, you got to hurry up and get a pair for review and comparison.

Yeah it's supposed to ship out tomorrow or Thursday. The Questyle should ship out tomorrow as well. I should have both by mid next week. I'm hoping it pairs well enough with the Questyle because I really don't have a good amp for low impedance headphones like the K812 otherwise. It'll be tough for the K812 to compete with the HD800 driven through an amp that was designed explicitly for the HD800 in the Questyle. I'm hoping for the best though and that it's 90-95% the HD800 in technicalities, and has some things that it bests the HD800 at or proves unique sounding enough for me to keep.

But I still use my HD650.

Dang was totally gonna make some prop bets on whether you or roguegeek sold HD700 first. O well, we can still take bets on how long it will take him to sell his. :veryevil:

$1300, hmm, it's still expensive.

I think the box that they come in is quite handy. I like to put them away when I'm at work etc. Keeps them out of the reach of small destructive hands! 

 

But in general I actually think Grado got it right with the pizza boxes. Nice and slim for storage. Of course you couldn't fit an HD800 in a grado box... Just saying. 

post #8864 of 24295

I think all headphones should come in something like this:

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Carring-Headphone-Bag-Box-For-Sennheiser-HD570-HD800-HD448-Headphone-/251240901576

 

Just put a small aluminium label on the front of it: "Sennheiser HD800"

 

Minimalistic, cheap, useful, doesn't take up space and wears better than a cardboard box.
