    Did HD800 fail? Poll: HD650 or HD800(vote only if you have listened to both)

    What Dallan says. I use the HD650 when using the headphone out on my receiver, as they are more forgiving with lesser equipment, but always reach for the HD800 when listening through the Zana Deux. Different flavours, but I like both headphones a lot.

    Zana Deux: Best or Worst for HD800?

    I have the Zana Deux too, and I agree with dallan. If you decide to go for one, do yourself a favor and swap the stock russian tube out with a good NOS tube. It really is worth it. As dallan said, they don't have to be expensive, and are very very easy to swap if that's your worry.

    Congrats on receiving your Zana. It is a beautiful amp. Seems like we ZD owners are a happy gang, who enjoy the heck out of it. I know I do =)

    Which amp for getting better lows from HD800s without loosing detail?

    The HD800s in retrospect...

    Out of the cans I own, the HD800 is getting all the playing time. I don't keep track of how many hours they have, but I have been listening about 2-3 hours almost every night since I got them some months ago. To me, they are way ahead of my other cans, no comparison. They still grow on me, and...

    Bass MIA in Hd800's...may be a contentious post

    I think the HD800 does bass just right. Not too little and not too much. Sure, there are more bass heavy cans out there, but I feel the HD800 has the right amount. Not anywhere as much as the DX1000, which I can't understand all the prase for their bass quality, but that's just me, many seem...

    What'd you do when headphones smush your hair down?

    Always be sure to bring a nice headband to replace the headphones when not in use. It will look all natural and lovely, no one will laugh at your hair anymore.

    Really nice!! If you want some constructive critique, I think it would be a good idea to edit out the small dots of dust and such. That would make them even better and more professional looking. Sorry for being anal, but these things tend to catch my eye...

    How do you deal with the changing seasons, physically?

    I really like the autumn. Lots of cold, fresh air when outside, and good to be inside firing up when the wind and frozen rain sets in. I sleep much better too, when the room is cold, but hate getting out of a warm bed in the morning when its all cold and dark... brrrrrr... And I am also...

    MUSIC or SEX: which would you give up?

    Well, I often hear people on this board talk about eargasm. If those people chose music instead of sex, wouldn't that mean they would have to downgrade to lesser setups?

    Wax - we all have it in our ears...

    If you're gonna clean your ears, clean them with your albows =) The wax is there for a purpose, I see no reason for deep cleaning with q-tips often. I also believe that it will only lead to even more wax production. Although, I do clean mine every now and then with q-tips, but not too...

    STAX or HD800?

    It's all subjective. You got to listen for yourself... No one can tell you which system you will like more, as you might have figured out by now.

    Canada Post tracking system question

    Thanks for your answers. Bob_McBob: Not sure, all I know is that there was an issue with PayPal and Expresspost for international shipping, so the seller chose Priority instead.
