Is there any chance that the cables from the B&W P5 or the Bose OE2/OE2i (both of which have very slim 2.5mm jacks) can fit (and bypass the locking mechanism) in the HD6/7/8? I've also been wondering this about the cables in the AT M50x and M40x...

Does anyone recommend a desktop amp I can pair up with the HD8?
Basshead here.

Not looking to break the bank to the max but I am willing to spend some money. I would love the Sennheiser DVD800 but don't want to spend 2k on it haha

M50/40x are definitely using 2.5mm detachment just like these new Senns.

Like HD280/360/380?

I currently have Sennheiser HD-25-1-iis. If I return them and get the HD 7, 8, or Momentums will it be an upgrade?

I have to stress that I will be using these for producing songs/beats and am concerned about sound quality only. I don't care about comfort or build features, chords, etc. 

 

I will be using these as a monitor headphone listening/making electronic music but will also be recording soft folk songs/ acoustic guitar/ classical, so Im a little worried the bass in the 7 or 8 will be too overpowering. so which is the best best sound quality wise out of all these, which can give the biggest most full sound/ soundstage? 

 

HD7

HD8

Momentum

HD 25 1 ii

 

also I want to put all my budget (400$) toward just the headphones, so I will not be using an amp.

^ Sorry everyone knows real DJs use these:

What does it matter if Sennheiser makes new $300 "DJ phones"? There's other options if you don't like this. Why re-invent HD25.

Cliche stuff. I've done marginal DJing but lots of studio/bedroom playing. My HD25's lasted 10 years then I sold them perfectly working.

 

Reading how sturdy these new are supposed to be, I find your comments silly. And if one actually is a real gigging for-profit DJ, $300-400 is chump change split into many (many) years. And you can enjoy the quality even at home.

I'm no DJ but I'm still very interested in the HD8 DJ, not all buyers will be DJ's. :) Probably they are trying to appeal to a wide range of customers. In fact this is the first headphones from Sennheiser I've had an interest in, the higherend Sennheiser products like HD700, 800 etc is not my cup of tea. Tried the Momentum and didn't like them but the fit was off for me too as it was on-ears for me so maybe that had to do with it. HD25-II sounds quite good though to me with the exception of soundstaging and lack of subbass (but loved its midbass capabilities).

If the HD8s are built like the Pioneer HDJ-2000s (the only other full metal DJ headphone) and the usual Sennheiser standard (think HD25), I don't think there should be any quality or durability issues...

 

As for price, I'd guess Sennheiser was targeting the M100, which is about $360 when spec'd to an equivalent DJ spec. The HDJ-2000s were also roughly the same price when they came out.

as far as complaining about the price goes... I was one of them.... I do think we can expect the price to come down later. The momentum was a hard reach at first

I am with you 100%. I've used the HD25 for close to 10 years too. While the 25 was nice and did the job 100% fine, I know after using and owning the HD8 now for only 2 weeks that it IS BETTER in everyway. The sound is improved doubly. Subbass and the overall sound is improved. These are hands down the most comfortable headphones I own next to the HD600s! For a gigging dj or anyone who is serious about mixing, these are a wonderful purchase. This bests out the pro900, m100, any of the ultrasone line headphones. If you were a fan of the 25, the 8 is the ultimate step up.

It is hard to see any durability issues with the 8's so far. HD8's are solid tanks, from the hinges, to the headband, to the earpads.... Built like a Mercedes, sounds great for the Ladies. HD8's also sound much better than the 2000's. More comfortable as well.
