    HD800 Listening Experience with different amps & sources

    In reading that review, I felt like a kid in a candy store...hmm...come to think of it, you are one lucky ! Like a few others have said, in reading your review, I had the sudden desire to go and look up some of the music that you used for your review; no luck. Can you give a few more details...

    A comparison between the Sennheiser HD800 and the Sony R10

    Interesting indeed! That area in the 1 to 5k range; how does it relate to sound? When I heard the R10, I remember it having a magical midrange that seemed pinpoint with instruments. But the bass did not seem so nicely done.

    Tangerine, thank you for that comparison, it was helpful. Even though I do not think I will break down and buy the Edition 8, I sure would not pass up the opportunity to hear it, or the PS1000. Quote: Originally Posted by Skylab Deviations from flat frequency response are very...

    HD800 vs DX1000

    Both are musical, but the HD 800 displays its musicality in a familiar; however, different way. You can hear and feel bass, but without the unnecessary impact.

    REVIEW: Sennheiser HD 800

    Skylab's review should be applauded; it is and very much appreciated! Not many will, or have taken the time to do what he has done for this community! I do not agree with every single detail, but I respect his opinion(s). The HD 800 is a complex headphone. The outpouring of varying opinions...

    Skylab, Thank you for taking the time to write that beautifully epic review. It defiantly gives a different flavor, than what I/we've been used to. Currently, I own both the DX1000 and the HD 800 (had the HD 650 for years) and while I agree on most points, I disagree on some others, and...
