If you ask me, it sounds a bit silly to expect HDVD would change the way pops and clicks annoy you.

Nice thread for me. Just said bye to D7100 and enjoying TH900. I also have HD650 but always find it very dark. So what should be my next open headphones? Hd800 or LCD2/3 or T1?
I like The bass TH900 provides.. So pushy, precise and tactile. So i want the open ones with huge scene and micro details but not plain like Audio technica ATh-Ad1000/2000

Sounds like HD800 to me. T1 is a warmer sounding version of the same sound signature, HD700 the same but in a different way. All three has got great imaging and a big scene. I find HD700 to be least bright, but if tH900 doesn't bother you with its brightness, I doubt HD800 will. HD800 and T1 are difficult to match with amplifier. HD700 is much more flexible.

Well, thanks. Are HD800 smooth as HD650 in long term? Im switching to HD650 every time on viloins and sax playing. Hope TH800 will change a little bit after burning in..  

 

I tested shortly to Hd800 and LCD2 and LCD seems to be a little bit smoother and less annoying than HD800

No, HD800 Well never be smooth like 650. They are totally different and always will be. But a good amp-match helps. 

 

If you want something smoother, Audeze is usually a good choice, unless you are listening at unusually low volume. Hifiman HE6 and HE500 are also warmer sounding than the HD800, especially HE500. If you like HD650, HE500 should be in your taste. The new HE 560 is very different, brighter, more like HD800.

All I can add is that I love, absolutely love my HD800, teamed with a Schitt Lyr2. I play very different kinds of music, and yes, it's revealing.

I think I may be one of the very rarest who listens to most of my electronic music on the T1, HD800 and K812 and not the TH900 - even though I also own a TH900 (I love the TH900 with instrumental metal/rock). I prefer a neutral sound signature for my stuff - I listen to artists like Future Sound of London, The Orb, Phutureprimitive, Carbon Based Lifeforms, Infected Mushroom, Kaminanda, Shulman, Shpongle, Ott and more of that kind of stuff.
