A lot of bang for the buck

Pros: - relatively quiet background - fast, neutral presentation - very powerful for it's size

HD800's, I thought "what the heck, lets plug these suckers into my BIG RIG & see what they can do.." Well, to say I was shocked would be an understatement. I NEVER expected them to have the amount of resolution, impact and overall enjoyable 'musicality' that these do indeed possess.   I actually find myself spending a fare amount of 'ear time'...
