I try and keep my 2 year old off my gear, but sometimes I catch him messing with the knobs and volume.... Might have to invest in a cage of some kind. (for my rig of course ;)


LOL :tongue: I had all my equipment placed  4 feet of the ground when they were toddlers.

Good thinking haha. I hate giving him wrong when he touches stuff because he's only copying his dad.... But one day he'll understand ;)

Been listening to some Joe Satriani, am I the only one who thinks the HD800 sounds a bit.....off with it? It doesn't 'shine' as well as Classical IMO.

Lets ask the greatest rock'n'roll band in the world shall we?

 

 

Sounds pretty good to me! :beerchug:

I listen to Joe all the time and they sound great.....HD800's are chain dependent though....

I think my WA3 is the culprit, the bass sounds loose and muddy compared to WA6.

That makes more sense....I would never describe the 800's as muddy.

The HD800. Are an extremely detailed , airy , fast , large staging headphone period. Anything different or less is in the chain. And they are fantastic with any genre , it's just people want all the music to sound fantastic on them. Well it will not. The answer lies in many places , Within the chain and sometimes the recording.
I am not saying we all should spend mega bucks on devices to make them shine. A little EQ can make most rigs sound much better. Regarding tube amps , they are the most Versatel and also the most difficult to get correct. As tubes are great I think it is much Easer to just buy a proven amp. And the myth of the tubes warms them up a bit is bull. EQ is a far better way to warm them up on what ever music we are using at that time. The above info is not a rant and just my own personnel view on the HD800.

I love the synergy with the 800's and my Cary SLI-80....The KT88's make the 800's sing.

This is so true.... That blanket impression of tubes has become an urban myth.
