    Looks like Audio Advisor is discounting the GS-e series. Perhaps in anticipation of the GS-x series? Audio Advisor

    I'm assuming this is the old cable? If so, I purchased an inexpensive corded heat gun from Harbor Freight. It straightened the wire to a degree, but there were still visible impressions/marks on the wire from the bends and the wire ties. A hair dryer may work as well. YMMV.

    Official Unofficial 8XX Discussion Thread - UPDATE SENNHEISER HAS BEEN SOLD!!! GT(heck)IH

    I have the Fenestrated Sheepskin. I removed the old pads and Sennheiser insert. Huge improvement in comfort and noticed a boost in the mids and treble as well.

    Official Unofficial 8XX Discussion Thread - UPDATE SENNHEISER HAS BEEN SOLD!!! GT(heck)IH

    I replaced the pads with a pair of Dekoni Fenestrated Sheepskins and left out the inserts with the Sennheiser logo. Immediate improvement to my ears. Perhaps simply removing the insert between the pads and driver will boost the mids? I also purchased a Hart Audio Cable to replace the stock...

    This is sad. If I offered you a Mercedes for > 50% off and explained you may need to change the tires (pads) or tune the engine (EQ) to get your desired performance (understanding the tires and tuning were not ideal for everyone on the original) would you say no? This is assuming you were even...

    My SN is in the 018XX range. I received them yesterday and also received my Dekoni Fenestrated Sheepskin Pads today. Just installed. My Hart Audio Cables arrive next Tuesday. Impressions forth coming.

    Sold. The HD 800 S has always been my "money is no object" headphone for some time. Tuning is off? No problem. For ~ $800 I 'm fairly confident I can figure this s*it out.

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    Received my Hart Audio Cable this afternoon. Listened for a bit and they sound as good if not better than the stock Sennheiser cable. From a quality and pride of ownership perspective, they are amazing. I purchased the balanced Sennheiser cable and the Desktop Necessities Multi-Kit w/case...

    I'm listening with the Scotch-Brite Heavy Duty stock L Pads before I swap to the Gs and the TTVJ Deluxe Flat Pads. Also have the S and HD414 on hand. I'm starting off with the typical tracks to level set. "Democracy" by the Lumineers and "Don't Drink the Water" by DMB. Down the rabbit hole...

    ...oh by the way. The only reason I purchased a heat gun from Harbor Freight several years ago was because of the old cable. Every headphone I purchased from Grado had a kink or a bend that would give me an aneurysm. Spinning cups incessantly to no avail. Yes, I would love a detachable cable...

    Give me a few days to be more reasonable. I've been waiting for this can for ~ 10 years. Couldn't afford the RS1i at the time. Once I could afford a RS1, the initial impressions of the RS1e scared me away. I've had the RS2i, the GH2s, wanted the Hemps, thought about the GS1000e, etc. Only...

    I'm sequestered in my Mother's house waiting for our new home to be built. Downgraded from a Lyr 3 w/ Multibit and Ragnorak 2 w/ Modi Multibit to a Vali 2+ w/ Modi Multibit. I have been listening for 20 minutes so no break in or pad swapping just yet. I knew in the first few seconds they were...
