Pros: natural bass, build quality, comfort, fast and detail, alike high end stats.

Cons: peaky treble, highs can be slightly bright on some tracks, paint chipping, may be expensive for some

The HD800's has been around a long time so I'm going to wrap up this review in a few paragraphs.    Having owned 3 HD800's at one stage, Serials 51**, 136** and Purrins 103**.    Going through all 3 before selling the first two and keeping only Purrins HD800 I bought off him, the early serial based HD800's are to my ears a bit more bass light and more warmer then my original serial 136** and purrins 103**.   I ended up selling mine and the early serial based HD800 and was thinking of selling purrins one due to moving onto speakers but I thought maybe I should keep it because its got the magical touch from purrin due to all the CSD plots he does...

Pros: Mids, treble, bass, unique design, wood

Cons: ,price for sound, slightly slow and tad bit muddy, decayed when listening to fast bpm music, weight, slightly rolled off highs

The mids on this thing is absolutely nice for those who luster for a bit more clear vocal reproduction, an SS amp would benefit dearly over a tube amp, not to say that a tube amp pairs up badly with the LCD2's it depends on what you want with your overall music listening experience.  ...
