Not necessarily.

If you look at the so-called clubs, it seems as if it's natural for people to want to think of themselves as enjoying a certain sound, and they add their favorites regardless of how those sound.

Besides, it's not as if different driver technologies sound alike even when the measurements are broadly similar.

Agree. Describing any cans as neutral almost guarantee bombardment.

 

Do we have a glossary thread about sonic terms here? Thought of writing one but the definitions are too controversial.

http://www.head-fi.org/a/describing-sound-a-glossary is of mixed value.

I've been listening to a ton of music with the 812 and the Lehmann Audio Linear SE. Now that things have really settled in, I'm now realizing the full potential and promise of the AKG K812. Right now I'm listening to a wonderful remastered recording go Bassist Brian Bromberg's, "It's about Time" cd, featuring Freddie Hubbard on trumpet and Ernie a Watts on sax. This is an all acoustic affair. Big, wide well produced soundstage. Instruments sound truly lifelike. Bass is very deep, with a solid sense of depth and space. The piano sounds utterly superb, the trumpet and sax rip, roar and soar. The drum not only sounds big and powerful, but you can feel it. This is everything Zi hoped for and expected on the 812. I tried this same cd with my 812,(which also pairs extremely well with the Lehmann), but it just couldn't deliver thr speaker like performance and presentation of the K813. No contest on this one!
Earlier I feasted on the superb , newly released 40th anniversary recording of Elvis, Recorded Live in Memphis. This was beautifully remastered, and the Presley band,( 30 musicians altogether) roared to life on this 1974 concert performance.
Elvis's voice was in peak form. Every element of the band, from orchestra to backup singers, was presented in great detail. The K812 delivered up the full Elvis Presley Show damn near as if I was there. Great performance and cd, rendered in superb fashion by the 812. No tizzyness, no harshness, and no distortion on any level I could detect, just pure musical bliss.

A few typos above, I should have retread what I typed. I meant to compare the 812 to the hd800 about half way through the first paragraph, but flubbed it. To make matters worse, I then went on to state the hd800 just couldn't compare to the K813. So as not to set off more rumors and wild speculation, there is no 813, it was just me screwing up. Sorry.

LOL we would have never guessed that you may have thought the K812 trashed the 800.  Just pulling your leg !  Glad your enjoying them :beerchug:

I never really liked HD800 with Lehmann Black Cube, not sure about SE version.

I am so excited! I won the Toxic Cables contest for 6000th post on the Toxic Cables Appreciation Thread. Frank offered me anything I wanted in Black Widow. I opted for a BW that will fit my 812. And it's now ready! It's in 4 wire 22 AWG: the other cables available only come in 3 wire. Here are the photos:
