Are there multiple colors for the HD-800?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I've seen the silver one and I recently saw a black version with a little blue in the center.  Is one of these for one year and the other is for the previous year?

I think it's some aftermarket thing that that guy was promoting. I remember his mentioning it, maybe in the summer infomercial. I don't remember precisely, as I turned the sound off. Anyway, there shouldn't be any sound difference based on color (until after burn in tongue.gif).

But there seem to be some minor differences between older HD800s and the past year or so. I haven't yet compared them directly, but you can see it on the charts and I've read some posts confirming it. I don't think Sennheiser has an official word about it.

Thanks. That's one model that needs it: too modern.

 

It looks sportier in all white . . . it's pretty hopeless. I'd pay $300 to make it invisible.

I actually want one in just grey, but then I realize that not only is it just using the HD650 color, but that it isn't too far off from the silver, but I'd still end up paying a lot more (what you'd really pay for is keeping the lettering on it even when repainted). I do prefer matte color though, not really a fan of glossy finishes, but glossy white does impart that Imperial (Star Wars) look to it.
