Wow, that's a truly stellar pr move act of kindness from Sennheiser!

 

So, how are you enjoying the less-stinky HD800s now?

Pretty cool, I am happy to see seenheiser's excellent customer service at work. Makes the Hd800 an even more tempting purchase

Well, he is the guy who loves the sound of his HD-800s more than the smell of death... :wink_face:

 

I'll bet this went 'round the office pretty fast after they found out about the thread.

Now that the new pads are on, I feel like I have a brand new HD800. They are truly an amazing headphone. I like how un-congested they sound. The new pads certainly make the experience more enjoyable. smily_headphones1.gif

I wonder how many people would have just returned them outright?! tongue_smile.gif

That's a whole other topic, but using ingredients to create a balanced ratio of acid-to-sweet is truly an art form that makes or breaks a "craft cocktail"!

You need to start a Whiskey-fi subforum!  It is a musical enjoyment enhancer, just like freshly baked cookies!

 

I normally just drink whatever year Macallan I can afford at the moment neat, but learning mixed drinks that don't insult the whiskey would be great.

Correct. Ginger beer is just like ginger ale, but much spicier, more complex, and generally sweeter. They mix better with alcohol due to those notable features. Though, there is one alcoholic version called Crabbies from Scotland. It is truly wonderful!
