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?
Are there multiple colors for the HD-800?

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.
