Sorry man - I'm not technical enough to answer your question.  I hope someone else who is qualified can chime in.  

 

No problem. I understand basic circuits but I'm not an electrical engineer so if I'm going to try and understand how this current drive actually works it's going to take me a while... but the principle is brilliant. It's an inherently  superior operating principle.

SOUNDS AMAZING WITH MY HD800!!!

 

So so fun to build!!!! My first soldering project too. What an experience!!! Listening to something you build from the ground up with your own hands!! Definitely goes head to head with $1000+ amps!! Absolutely amazing, highly recommended!!!

 

And i haven't even added the Speedball yet. Saving that for another day.

 

Nice, I might try and build the mainline kit in the fall when the snow comes.

Can I get some opinions please. I have an uberfrost and crack with speedball. Is this enough to enjoy the hd800? AND...would you consider the hd800 a complementary hp to my hd600?

 

thanks...

CEE TEE has a non speedballed crack and enjoys his HD800 on there when away from his BA.

I used an uberfrost > Dynahi > HD800 and found it to be enjoyable as well.

you gonna be joining us here soon? - how exciting! 

 

I'd say the crack+speedball will be fine. Heard a lot of good things about crack and HD800. Dunno bout the uberfrost though.

Been using the uberfrost for a long time now and it is very nice with the HD800. don't know about the crack/speedball but others have said good things about it.

I'm very stubborn. Even when members I trust point out the obvious to me. :D

Matt, I just bought a HD800 with Anax 2 mod and I'm waiting on a XLR to 1/4 adapter to listen to it thru my Lyr.

If it's not my cup of tea, I can make you a deal.

Cheers, JC

wait till you hear it in your rig. You are coming from hd650 right? I did that also, well i went HD650 - T1 - HD800. 

 

You will hear improvements straight away. After you have them for 2 or 3 weeks you should put back on the HD650's - you will be shocked! I know I was. The longer you spend with the 2 headphones the bigger the gap in quality between them becomes.  

 

 

 

When I first got my HD800 I thought that they were very close to the T1. I used to swap the 2 headphones out depending on the music I was playing. Even after 2 or 3 months of having both I thought that they were very close but now there is only the HD800. When I put on the T1 I get about 2 or 3 tracks into an album and I have to switch to HD800. 

 

Even for pop/electronic and funk/soul the HD800 is miles ahead for me. I will sell the T1 in July to a friend.

I have an Eddie Current 2A3 MKIV and I can say the latest Anax mod is still a must.

How well does the Chord Hugo pair with the Sennheiser HD800?

I even enjoy them on the Lyr.  Looking forward to see you more in this thread.  :beerchug:

Which is better for the 800, uberfrost or gungnir? Hm...

 

Would it be worth upgrading my dac?
