EDIT: Btw, the description quite reminds me of K712 Pro... Very balanced for many folks but in reality a bit emphasised in bass (check graphs) - and this emphasis overshadows treble, making it a bit darker-sounding.

I thought the same, this is precisely why I'm so hopeful about the K812 myself.

I wasn't aware he was banned.  However, the mods here aren't particularly fond of discussion of banned members.  Unless it's a case of duplicate accounts, in which they will usually list the aliases in the title area.

Nope it just came up as Banned, probably for spamming threads and such.

 

He got what he deserved.

In away looks like the dynamic hps got to their limits for now, and I'm not even sure what the K812 have to offer over. on the other hand the HE-500 have a good upper mids, but not much else to offer.

True audiophiles know how bass should sound. And it shouldn't be emphasised. :bigsmile_face:

 

Doesn't the HD800 have a slight mid bass hump, thus it being coloured?

I posted a really long impression, but it appears it was taken down. I'm assuming because it wasn't my own impression, and that of a colleagues.

 

No wonder I couldn't find my post on this thread, I indeed posted it on another! Again, take it with a grain of salt, but it does seem to be a build up over the K712.

It wasn't taken down, you just posted it in a different thread:

No, the HD800's is anything but coloured, it is regarded as possibly the most neutral headphone around making it a great versatile tool for monitoring and studio use. The only flaw with the HD800's is the slight treble bump.

Not really! I cant use the HD-800 in the studio because of the treble boost! I prefer the original K702 with the Phonitor, sound more natural without the annoying treble.

I am not studio person myself, but its hard to imagine HD800 to be the one to chose for.

I cannot imagine using any x7xx headphone as a studio monitor tbh... K712 Pro a bit too bassy, the rest of the line too bass shy and treble happy.

 

HD800 are much more suitable for this purpose - havent heard more neutral headphone so far.

post #765 of 978

Saying that HD800 are neutral, is the same as saying that they are good for studio use. Lets keep it to the subject and leave this alone.
