I'm currently using the NFB 28.38 with HD800 and love it =) I'm no audiophile expert but it was a drastic difference from what I was using. Would love to hear your thoughts on it if you are able to compare the setup against others.
My preference has always been for warmer, fuller sounding headphones, like the HD6XX and LCD-2. But I felt I should get something different to compliment those. Turns out, the HD800 is not as different as I imagined. I had always read how bright the treble is, but I find the presentation on the warm side, and the treble much smoother than I ever imagined, based on the reviews. In fact, the LCD-2.2Fazor has more treble sparkle. But it is over-all warmer than the HD800, and certainly has more bass. Again, though, the HD800 is not as bass-shy as I feared, either. It's wonderfully balanced.
The HD800 does not fit my "perfect" signature, but it's very enjoyable, especially with acoustic music. And I LOVE the soundstage!
