    Calling all HD 800, HD 800S, and HD 8XX owners

    Hello Head-Fi! When the original HD 800 was launched in 2009, it ushered in both a sound and design that was unlike anything we had done before. We’re seeking input from owners of the open 800 family (past and present models) in the form of a quick survey. Because the questions span a few...

    Best DAC or DAC/AMP for HD 800?

    I got them for cheap and they came with a little dot mk III but i think (and read lots of times) that they make the sound more smooth, i want something to make them perform the best possible with the soundstage even if they get a bit technical and tiresome.

    New Member: Interested in Trying a Pre-Fazor Pair of LCD-2s!

    So, the bug hit me very recently. I tried the HD 600’s, compared them to everything else I’ve used and was blown away. I tried out HiFiMan’s HE400S and HE560, and ended up getting my hands on a pair of HD 800’s. It was just an experiment of sorts at first. Cool, a $1000 pair of headphones...

    HD 800 vs T1 - A comparison revisited

    It's a strange thing in this hobby how people judge a headphone by its price... Turns out even highly experienced users do this all the time. I've been considering buying one of these flagships and started reading up various comparisons. Made a strange discovery. So, when they were just...
