Yes, they are. Good eye! It's paired with the wonderful Tralucent silver/gold, thanks to Gavin.
I am still letting it burn in. But initial impressions are pretty favorable. Comparing the HM 901 vs the HM 802 is uncannily like contrasting the Fitear C435 vs MH334. While the HM 901 is balanced and astonishingly clear, the HM 802 is warmer and less transparent. What the HM 802 does have to make up for that is the lovely timbre of percussion and strings. Very organic.
Whilst it's still early days, I suspect what will happen is that the HM 802 will be for days when I feel like just enjoying the music and relaxing next to a warm fireplace, single malt whiskey in one hand and a good book in the other. :)
Thanks for the early impression, Kiats. I really enjoy reading your review on the C435. Your review plus Gavin's and Sean's advices have lead me to place my order. One of the good things I gain from hanging around in head-fi.
As for the the portable gear, I have to say I am a little overwhelmed by the number of choices (both DAP and portable amps) going to be or already released in the market. Probably will keep looking.
