How much does the sound vary, and should it worry anyone interested in getting a pair?
Thanks.

How to kill the moment bud ;)

There is no sound variation according to the more experienced head-fiers who have tried many pairs. Seriously I wouldn't worry about that. Sennheiser have an exceptional reputation in regards to quality control and consistency, with the HD800)

A tool to lay bare the truth,

Thy will hold onto thee -

as thy is a geek..

Just don't mention the f***ing 6khz peak. 

There once was an HD800 from

Nantucket.....

 

 

 

Did I do that right?  :evil:

Both dacs and amps are to blame. If we had really good speakers and played something and it sounded horrible on our system. We would blame it on the music , DAC or amps. But with the hd800 it becomes just the headphones .

But that will just start another debate so let's not go there in this thread lol.

@ALRAINBOW love your work man! The greatest thing about your writing style is that it leads people to seek the deeper meaning in your words.... Even if there isn't one. wink.gifbeerchug.gif

Would that be a fit of Peak?

Has anyone tried using an equalizer for the tonal imbalances of certain amps that have enough power, speed and dynamics to drive not just the HD800 but some orthodynamics/planars?

smily_headphones1.gif, I've only had my HD800 for a week with about 30hrs of burn in. When it comes to the sound, somewhat impressed but when it comes to comfort and quality I'm a Sennheiser Customer for life.

Since these headphones have been out for almost five years now. Does anyone know when the next generation will be released?
post #9687 of 24343
Of course many here have used EQ. . But consider the headphones are not imbalanced , so make your adjustments on how it sounds good to you . Not how someone tells you it should sound. Also try taking away rather then adding . Find tracks you know well and play and enjoy . If adding try doing the lower octave from 60 up to about 300. This will take away the highs a little and maybe give you a better sound for U.

I own a pair of HD800 that i run with a Burson Conductor and a WA2 this weekend i had a revelation. I went to the  Montreal  audio show to try all the top end HP  Abyss Stax, Audeze's ,Grado's ects,  i came out of there a changed man why you ask because i discovered audio is just hype .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        I get to the Woo Audio room what do i see a pair of Abyss HP plugged into WA5 i was all excited i said to myself man this is going to be something else ,WRONG what i discovered because this was the first time i actually went to an audio show and listened to all those HP, is that audio deals in subtilitys and they are  charging thousands for it what a rip . So this system will be end game  for me i am happy to say because for thousands more those HP are simply not worth it .

This is because you already owned the superior headphone.

+1 lol, the HD800 measures much better than the Abyss. In other word, it is technically superior.
