    New headphone amplifier from Bryston

      $800?!?! I'd get a second one for that price :P   Impact and just plain ooomph? ....we are still talking about sound...right?   BHA does dynamics exceptionally well to my hear. For oomph, well, it definitely gave my HD800 far more of that too.

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    Interesting...I've found that with with every planar I've tried, you have to turn them up to really make the sound compelling.   ....which in my case, if you're at work, isn't always an option.

    Haha, after I was laying in bed, I thought to myself "It's probably the pre XLR out model vs the current updated.... Right on.

    I would be scared to death to even try it.... and I have a huge head and have no issues (almost on max size, minus one click on each side). Not tight at all.

    Very astute observation. Possibly James Tanner might clarify?

    Very interesting... are you using single ended or balanced interconnects / headphone cable?

    New from Garage1217, the solid-state Project Polaris!

    Oh worry not! I have such tools, the dust will stay off it! :) I thought of this long before I bought it... especially where it is an open design, want to be able to get dust off the board.

    I just received my Polaris today, have 2 - 3 hours on it so far. It does a really good job with my HD800 especially considering how inexpensive it is; deeply impressive. Seeing as this is a work amp, it almost makes me want to get a second HD800 for work! I have some AKG K7xx on the way...

    No rush at all! Take your time....and I agree, it would be a great track to compare gear I'm thinking, just because there's never too much going on, you'd have very clear sonic signposts. I will try it eventually.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    First thing I did arriving home is try this with HD800, and yes, it does sound fantastic. Right from the outset, the harmonica is really satisfying. The mandolin has the detail required to let every string have it's moment (so important for that instrument, if its sound gets washed out it loses...

    I'm not home to try it with them... But yeah I could see it. The nice sparkly detailed sound would play well with this I think

    The air in the sound, pin point imaging, naturalness of sound without any artificial body added. Its a very pure experience. That said I like them for a bunch of other genres too.

    Yeah... With HD800… You stand in awe of classical. The only reason you wouldn't get them is if ONLY liked them for that, and that's not your reason for being.

    Huh...I would definitely see an audiologist about that... the hear definitely hears higher frequencies as being louder, but it shouldn't hurt, unless the volume is way too loud.
