I wouldn't either use the case as I'm only listening at home but I still think the case has nice eyecandy though. :)

This would be important question to me, I tend to not wanna plug/unplug cables too often, the jacks wear out and will come off easier the more you plug/un-plug. Again I'm no DJ or mobile listener but if I would be it would be an important aspect.

Sorry, I don't recall and sent the 7's back last week. Someone who has them will have to answer.

The way the Pro900 case works is ideal. Unzip, drop in the phones (the cups on the Pro900 rotate down 90*) and go. And for a DJ would be the ideal I'd guess.

I pulled the trigger and ordered a pair of HD 8's. smily_headphones1.gif Hope they're not such a disappointment like the V-MODA's were.

Where did you order from? I see you're also from Finland. I'm too cheap to order directly from Sennheiser for 349€ when I know it will be cheaper street pricing, 299€ on thomann.de with free shipping for example but it's not yet available. :(


Also what did you find disappointing with the V-Moda (M100?), just so I know what aspects this HD8 does better/worse for comparison. :p

Actually it seems they are in stock today. ;) Would have taken all from there if I knew the April estimate was bogus.. Musicstore.com is soo slow to answer emails. I've yet to receive any answers why my HD8 aren't shipped.

Ordered mine from Thomann since they seem to have them in stock. V-MODA were too loose on my head and they didn't isolate enough for my liking. Hoping Sennheiser will satisfy my dj headphone need for the next 15 years or so, like they did with the HD-25's.

Sure would be nice to get a solid compare/contrast between M-100 and HD 8 DJ.  I had trouble with M-100 as well, but really like the sound a lot.  Just fit issues for me, and XL pads solved most things except the bass was just a tad too much and the mids recessed just a tad too much.  If the ear pads/cups were big enough for my ears I probably would have still kept them.

 

Hoping the HD 8 DJ will fit right, and hoping that it is maybe just a little better than M-100 in terms of overall sound quality and doesn't get too boomy.  I keep changing my wish list, sometimes I am convinced the HD8 DJ will be next, other times I am thinking I would be happier with MDR-7520 or SRH-1540.  Looking forward to hearing more about these three new Senns.

Hd8 is a significant jump from the m100, maybe two jumps. M100 is not a professional headphone. The M100 was a huge disappointment to my ears and expectations. Nothing was really done right. On the hd8 however, the highs are very clear without any sibilance. I am able to discern cymbals from hi-hats from claps. Mids are nicely done. There is an addictive sound to the headphone, coming from someone who loves quality audio as well as rich bass. I am able to drive this headphone loud without distortion. Once again, without distortion. I am a very happy owner and will be keeping these forever.

Damn, still trying to decide between HD7 and HD8 - on thomann.de there is only a 30 Euro difference between them. The HD8 seems to be better built (better materials) and a bit more balanced (though still powerfull bass). I would really love the read some comparisons (from users and not marketing guys wink.gif) and see the frequency graphs of them.

Well, why not order both since as we know, Thomann returns are free, both money and hassle wise. :D

 

I don't think I'll have my HD8 until next week, so measurements from that you need to wait..

Thanks for the response...I think that is the most specific description I have seen thus far and I appreciate you sharing your thoughts on this.

Might have to place an order on the HD8 too (they seemed to come in stock as of yesterday on that thomann site, checked in the morning yesterday but it wasn't in stock yet but it changed during the day :)). I'm quite settled on HD8 after Oregonian's comment + the measurements of HD7 + HD8 which shows the HD8 has better qualities, the FR range is more controlled and even, especially the midrange seems particularly even. The highs wasn't accurately measured above 2kHz so that's a questionmark but below 2kHz things look very promissing.

Thanks for this comparison.

I was going to order the M100, but it looks like Sennheiser launched these with perfect timing!
I think I'm definitely going to order the HD8s, based on your impressions.

It's really hard to get unbiased impressions of the M100 over the echo-box of fanboys.
I think V-Moda spend most of their time marketing, instead of looking at simple things like comfort and genuine durability.

I am just speaking what I feel is right. The vmodas really disappointed me. Amped or Un-amped, they really didn't suffice as an audiophile headphone or dj headphone in any way. I am not a fanboy of any brand, but only of great products that I have tested. Over the past 3 years I've owned a good number of headphones and IEMs...I mix and also use the HD8's as a dj headphone. When I had these amped with my JDS labs C421, they took the overall house sound to a new level. I've even opened up the headphone to look at the housing and drivers...everything is solid, and the circuitry underneath the headphone is very stable, solid, and clean. I hope you can enjoy your HD8s happily!
