    HD 800 S Anniversary Edition

    There is a company in the US called Colorware that will do almost any colour you want on your HD800/800S including some very wild greens and pinks. This one is my favourite though.......

    HD 800 S Anniversary Edition

    I am not very excited about this and wouldn't swap my regular black HD800S for these. I wish that Sennheiser had launched the next generation 800 model for their anniversary instead of this purely cosmetic effort.

    Review by 'dadracer2' on item 'iFi audio ZEN CAN'

    In an effort to do the right thing I have made an attempt to recreate the ifi Audio Zen Can web page on my own desktop with my own Audio Technica ATH MSR7b headphones. You can see the proper image here https://ifi-audio.com/products/zen-can/ alongwith a whole lot of technical details regarding...

    Cayin HA-300 Flagship Tube Headphone Amplifier

    The sensitivity on Klipsch speakers seems to be calculated in a unique manner but in reality is about 3db overstated compared to most manufacturers. So if we say that's 99-3 , you should have a real world 96. The impedance curve is supposed to be reasonable so it comes to the size of your room...

    Effect Audio - AKA Balance Adapter

    It looks very well made and will match the DAPs well for style but €200 will buy you a whole new DAP or pair or headphones. This feels like a number has been chosen to see how far it could be taken.......

    Cayin HA-300 Flagship Tube Headphone Amplifier

    I think it is to show you have 3 impedance settings on the amp to match a wide variety of headphones and in order that the headphones are not adversely affected in regard to their frequency response. Either that or they are an air force display team........

    Sennheiser HD800S Unveiled!

    If you really like the sound of your ZMFs already and it would be reasonable to imagine that's why you bought them? Why not go for a more top of the range ZMF? I mean what I think of the Ayra vs HD800 doesn't matter as it's your money, your choice. If you try your existing headphones with a...

    Sennheiser HD800S Unveiled!

    No problem and you do raise a good point about 300 ohms, but I guess a lot of the modern valve (and indeed SS) headphone amps are now coming with a range of impedance settings so you can better tailor the amp output. I guess that the HD800S is less stressful on an amp than if it were 300 ohm and...

    Sennheiser HD800S Unveiled!

    I think you misunderstood my meaning. I was responding to the chap who said they were 600 ohm. I realise 300 ohm is still quite a bit and need more to drive them than 32 ohm.

    The HD800S is only 300 ohm.

    Cayin N3Pro: DAP with Vacuum Tube

    Are we saying that it will not stream Tidal/Qobuz or indeed other streaming services? That would be an issue for me as I don't have a lot of music in files.

    Cayin N3Pro: DAP with Vacuum Tube

    I'm confused. You are saying this does not do streaming and yet it has WiFi connectivity. How or why would it have this if it were not capable of streaming?

    Cayin N3Pro: DAP with Vacuum Tube

    Thanks for posting this. So it uses an actual power pentode......oh my word! I cannot wait to see how this sounds in triode mode. It could be the very DAP I thought would never happen.
