    My impression of HD600 vs HD800S (will better AMP/DAC change this?)

    Well I made an upgrade for my DAC and AMP and that has brought the HD800S to a whole new level. The difference to the HD600 is huge now.

    Best Amp + Dac for HD800 S

    I am looking for a nice DAC+AMP for my HD800S. I would prefer them to be separate devices but with the same look/style. Currently I am favoring for the Meier Classic FF + Meier Daccord FF. Any advice? :)

    Does audio latency matter for playback?

    Hey guys, as I understand the audio latency is the time a signal needs from "starting it" until actually getting it processed and played. So I wonder if it matters at all for playback of music? Basically it just means my song would start playing after a few millisecond of delay. And when...

    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

    Isn't that dip between 4k and 6k weird? Others seem to be flat there. Also 6k seems to be higher than the usual HD800S? But then again, I am not sure if one would notice it?

    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

    I just got my pair of HD800S and checked the "personal frequency response". It seems like others are way more flat at the 4k to 6k frequency. Is this something I should be worried about or that is "worse" than it should? Picture: https://imgur.com/a/Qy0qYJA

    My impression of HD600 vs HD800S (will better AMP/DAC change this?)

    Hello everybody, I have been using my HD600 with a NFB-12.1 for about 12 years or maybe longer. I decided that I wanted more and upgrade it as I always was interested in the HD800 and kind of thought of it as my holy grail of headphones. How ever, after reading a lot of comparisons between the...

    RME ADI-2 DAC Thread

    Anyone tried this DAC on Linux? Planning on pairing it with Meier Corda Classic FF / Feliks Lise for my HD800S.

    How to know if my setup is good (HD800S)?

    I just got my HD800S and want to completely re-new my setup for them. I thought about getting: Pro-Ject Audio: Power Box DS2 Sources (Power Supply) Pro-Ject Audio: DAC Box DS2 Ultra (DAC) Pro-Ject Audio: Head Box DS2 B (SS Amp) Feliks Audio: Elise (Tube Amp) As I can't really find any reviews...

    Pro-Ject Pre Box S2 Digital Impression Thread

    So that means a Multibit Bifrost would be superior to the DS2 Ultra? And then its kinda like Head Box DS2 B vs Ragnarok :P

    Pro-Ject Pre Box S2 Digital Impression Thread

    Thanks for your reply. Well basically I am interested in the DAC Box DS2 Ultra together with the Head Box DS2 B. And then maybe also the power supply in the fitting form factor. Its a lot of money and I could go with a ragnarok + multibit bifrost instead. Or maybe something else. So I really...

    Pro-Ject Pre Box S2 Digital Impression Thread

    So it seems that generally pro-ject has pretty good quality devices? I am thinking of buying a whole rig from them for my HD800S (DAC, Amp, maybe power supply). Maybe in combination with a Feliks Elise. Or should I rather go for another more known brand?

    Feliks-Audio ELISE...New thread.

    Would the Elise be a good fit for the HD800S? Can the Elise be used in countries with hot weather? I dont eant to invest a shitload into tubes, so I wonder if stock/cheap tubes work well with the Elise and how long they last? Would I miss a balanced output on the Elise?

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    Ansone knows how the Feliks Elise pairs with the HD800? I have read that the Euforia isn't really a good match with the HD800 for its price and so I wonder about the Elise? Will order my HD800 by the end of this year and still need a decent DAC+Amp with esthetics and quality :)

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    HD800 offers seem to decrease but the price won't. Curious if there is any better alternative for the same price. But as I understand even after all those years the HD800 counts as the top for its price?

    Since it is discounted I wonder if I should wait for a deal or better hurry up buying the HD800. Also I would love to have a nice serial number :P

    Thanks guys... so: Burson Soloist SL Mk2 (Non-Tube) - 350€ Not many reviews, not many comparisons, some say yes, some say no. Schiit Valhalla 2 (Tube) - 400€ Widely known, seems to be often recommended for the HD800. Bottlehead Crack Speedball (Tube) - 700€ High impedance for HD800 Whats...

    The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread

    Someone lists thr Burson Soloist as a rather bad amp for the HD800. I am really unsure what to buy. The most praised one (and there for probably the safest bet) seems to be the BH Crack Speedball... But that means tubes. Tubes means break in, some time of good usage before the get worse and...

    Hmm its too bad that not many have the Soloist SL. There are nearly no comparisons to other amps making me wonder if maybe other stuff for the same price might be just as good :/

    What is TOTL? :( I wouldnt mind if DAC+Amp would cost less than 1500€ :P I can get the Soloist pretty cheap right now though. Tube sounds and looks interesting I think I dont want to go tube.
