Looking at graphs, I was worried both my T90 and K812 would have excessive bass, prior to actually hearing them.  Upon receiving them, neither have excessive bass for classical, but i feel the K812 has just slightly too much bass for my tastes, when listening to most modern music, from say 2008 on forward, as engineering across all genres has specifically dialed it up as of late. 

thought the kibosh had been put on the rumour about sennheiser changing the fr of the hd800

headroom still has three different versions listed with different graph results.

it's not unusual to find variations in fr between production units and this isn't unique to sennheiser. there can also be variations in fr measurements due to positioning of the cans when they're taken. doesn't mean that sennheiser deliberately changed the hd800's fr. was under the impression that sennheiser has denied this rumour anyways.

I think numerous head-fi users and other prominent enthusiast sites have proven that no such kibosh was to be believed.  

We have consistent data across de-lineated serial numbers that quasi-corresponds with the announcement of the K812.

AKG qualitatively & quantitatively outbassed Sennheiser on their premier flagship....who saw that coming ?

Sennheiser ?

think "quasi-corresponds" is the key point. wink.gif it hasn't been proven if it's based on conjecture and anecdotal evidence.

like i said, variations in fr measurements between production units of flagship cans from other manufacturers exist. why single out the hd800 which is arguably one of the more stringently manufactured cans on the market? at least sennheiser provides an fr chart for each one.

wouldn't surprise me if there were variations in fr between k812 production units. does akg provide fr charts for them?

u owners of k812, did u experience a smoother sound after some breaking in...after xxx hours? 

swear my k812 sounds smoother today, on classical music...

Violins n cello in HiddenDragonCrawlingCat sounded gloriously smooth..on my tubeamps.

 

 

...or it's the whisky. 

 

 

=========

 

Forget about changing the stock cable...

just apply this onto the 1/4 in adaptor,

and the LEMO plug.

Listen while drinking Macallan 18 years and their sould will be smooth...listen while drinking Johnny Walker red and the jarring treble will kill you!

cottagecheeze in olive oil...parma ham...redwine...n it is better than he1000:D

actually I find the sound of k812 one of the most attractive of the cans I heard/own todate.

After demoing them side by side with Oppo PM-2s and Audeze EL-8s I'm finding it a little easier to justify their price. They're in a whole other league than those headphones.

The k812 is a very nice sounding HP.  I ended up keeping it over a pair of LCD-x I owned.  No regrets.
