    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    My HD 800 just had it's rubber insulation cracked too. It cracked itself, didn't twist it or drop anything on it... Oh my lord how expensive these cables are! Bought my HD 800 in 2013 so the cables lasted for four years.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    I also had the T1 and sold it (preferred the HD650, and by a huge margin)   That's why I was surprised how much I love the HD800.

    Asus Essence One Headphone Amp/DAC (CeBIT 2011)

      I have to say...I have the HD800, Asus Essence ONE muses edition, and a Lake People G100 headphone amp and it is glorious.   One of the really surprising facets as that almost all sibilance is completely gone. I don't know how that is possible but this combo sounds really nice.

    HD800 to HD650 Sound Signature Conversion + Dolby Headphone - Comment & Discuss!

    The ONLY headphone that uses a ring radiator driver is the HD800.   Just to give you an example: HD650 left, HD800 right.

      T1 does not have a ring radiator driver.    It is a Sennheiser patent. The T1 uses regular drivers.

      Except the Beyerdynamic T1 has a WAY worse peak at 6-10khz.   HD800: http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/SennheiserHD800.pdf   T1: http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/BeyerdynamicT1.pdf   I would not say that this is an issue because of a ring driver.

    HD800 to HD650 Sound Signature Conversion + Dolby Headphone - Comment & Discuss!

    Works pretty well, sounds way closer to the HD650 but still retains some of the HD800 magic. Though my dac + amp combo is already warm enough but I feel this could work wonders with some soundcards + hd800 combinations.

      When I plug the HD800 to the Asus Essence STX, it has too much treble and clinical. When I plug them into the V-DACII paired with a Lake People G100 amp, it sounds very neutral with almost no treble boost. When I plug it into my Onkyo stereoamp, it's somewhere in between but still sounds...

    The Official Beyerdynamic T1 Impressions and Discussion Thread

      I don't know what was wrong with my T1 but I enjoyed the HD650 more. Though the HD800 is on another level.

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    I meant that the HD800 was an upgrade (from the hd650) in the sense that it does sound better. It still sounds considerably different though to warrant keeping the HD650 around.

    Quote:   For me the HD800. The T1 I had was way brighter and edgier in the treble and the mids were not nearly as nice as on the HD800. My HD800 is awesome.    And YES. I also like even the HD650 better than the T1. I first "upgraded" from the HD650 to the T1 but I really did not dig...

    Can you convince me to cancel my Sony MDR-XB500 order?

    So is the HD600 the most neutral headphone in the world?

    I'm just listening to the HD800 being driven by the Lake People G100 and a V-DAC II. Sounds pretty damn neutral. HD650 with these is a bass bloated mess (still love them though too)

    Why does the Marantz PM8004 beat all amps that I own???

    Yup. I also experienced this same phenomenon when I got the Onkyo A-5VL. I think it beats both the Lehmann Black Cube Linear and the Lake People G100 which are both more expensive than the stereo Onkyo amp. This with the hd650.

    Quote:   I've had this experience when pairing the HD650 with equipment that doesn't suit it. It can become very slow and dull.    But when you pair it correctly (whatever that is) and give it a bit of volume, it will really rock. HD650 does react surprisingly well to faster sources...

    Quote:   Great phones. But for me, the synergy is with the HD650. HE-500 was better than the overbright T1 and it did excel in other areas (highs were great and loved the bass too). HD650 just has that magical thing going on somewhere there. Especially on vocals. Plus I can listen to them...

    Quote:   Yup. The HE500 does have better highs and a touch better bass. But goshdarnit, the HD650 does mids so well that... well...damn. When I listened to the soundtrack for "Spacebattleship Yamato" film and the choir starts...the hd650 gives me shivers.

    Suggestion for Android Phone

    Xperia V. It has LTE plus great sound quality. Better than the Xperia S I previously had. Also, water tight.

    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    I had to get rid of the Beyerdynamic T1 because I didn't like the slightly piercing treble. It is personal. I've felt that using a "darker" phone (HE-500, HD650) is better in the long run. Though will have to test the HD800 someday.

    Great write up! I also just absolutely love the hd650. I've gone through the Beyerdynamic T1 (sold) and the HIFIMAN HE-500 (gonna sell it too probably). The hd650 is just too good. The sound it has is just ... something very few phones do.

    Quote:   It's some kind off synergy thing. I like the HD650 better with a Rega Ear-amp which people would never buy nowadays. I think it sounds better with the Rega than the Black Cube Linear that costs about 3x more.
