Are you on about my new headband or the problem I find with the 009's, if it's the problem, I've mentioned it already in some of my posts, to which other head-fiers are not totally happy with how they sound.
I've only heard the HD-800 once at an head-fi meeting and wasn't that impressed, however some are saying the GS-Xmk2 makes them sound very good.
Even if the GS-Xmk2 did make the HD-800's sound very good, I've got the HD-600's which I'm very happy with so I've no plans on getting the HD-800.
The main reason why I'm keeping my SR-009's is because of how they now look, to me they are now one of the best looking headphones I've ever seen.
Not only that, they're now the most comfortable. I find the HD-600's to be very comfortable but even though my 009's are heavier then the 600's, they are still more comfy.
I know I'm quoting a 6 month old post, so hopefully you have heard them since. Also, as I see in a later post, if looks are a concern, get them through Colorware as I did. Perhaps a different color combination will be easier on the eyes.
