Thread Starter 

Hello, I'm curious about buying HD800 As addon to Fostex TH900 And T1.

You think It's worth ? as I'm looking for a bigger sound stage and natural sound If not you recommend any other?

Thanks ^.-

The Grado PS1000 are the most natural sounding headphones with wide soundstage and overall balanced soundquality. LCD-02 are also close and they sound amazing if pair with right AMPs/DAC.

You prefer PS1000 to HD800 regarding sound stage and naturality.? :F

If your T1s do not mimic a natural headphone, the HD800 won´t either. The latter will give you a (in)significant larger soundstage - bit at the expense of less pin-pointing. I.e. the HD800 smears the sound more. Happy hunting.

Well T1 soundstage Is bigger than most of my cans but somehow It's suffocating and a bit boring to me..

It lacks details comparing to TH900.

I'm confused whether go for PS1000 or HD800 :(

PS1000 is super nice, but heavy. Natural with a thicker sound, the T1 is brighter and a tad cleaner. I prefered the T1 for the micro detail but it is quite clinical, the PS1000 is a tad warmer.

I already have T1 and I like them but not much satisfied so I'm looking for an upgrade and I'm confused between HD800 and PS1000

what's your chain, i can agree that the t1 soundstage, being a semi open can, may be perceived as "suffocating" compared to an open can, but boring... hmm... natural should be even more boring than

 

edit: you should try the audezes, which are highly impactful but still retain natural and airy sound

 

ofc the rest of the chain must measure up

The Difference is big enough to make decision easier about these headphones like HD800 are bright yet clilincal, highly detailed but on cold side of sound. Grado PS1000 has little wamer, airy soundsignature than HD800 and highly detailed, vocal(male/female) sound so amazing on PS1000 and at the same time instruments sound so natural and highly detailed due to inner wood housing.

So you're saying PS1000 has bigger sound stage and airy than HD800 ? cause that's what I'm looking for..

A surreal experience for Goa-Trance

Well I have TH900 and as I saw the reviews It's better than Audeze so that's why I didn't look into buying Audeze and I bought Fostex Instead.
