    The Woo WA8? That also surprises me. The WA8 delivers about 300mW @40ohms. With a sensitivity of 87dB SPL of the HEDDphone that seems to me to be hard on the limit, if not too weak. Hard to believe that the HEDDphone comes to life with this performance.

    My initial plan was to try the HEDD with my HeadAmp GS-X mk2 and a Schiit Mjolnir. But if this is the excuse for a Phonitor, well, I guess it's a sacrifice I will have to make. I've been toying with a Phonitor ever since my first Jerry Harvey IEMs, but never did pull the trigger. Maybe, just maybe . . ..

    This was towards the beginning of my headphone journey. I didn’t know any better then.

    That is way too heavy for a headphone. Ridiculous.

    If this is ridiculous, then I guess so are some others. Everyone's MMV. Weight matters, but as a single spec, it seems to me it is only one part of comfort and avoidance of physical fatigue while listening. In my main headphone listening area, I have a chair that tilts with sufficient back and neck support so that headphone weight by itself is not the most important factor. Proper fit matters more for me. The RAAL SR1a is much lighter than this, but its peculiar geometry makes fit a little bit more of a chore to achieve and maintain while moving. My Audez'e LCD-4, which is heavier than the HEDD can be worn for hours with little physical fatigue, though I no longer enjoy its sound as much as I once did. My Senns and Utopias are lighter and easy to wear, as are all my Stax, but I generally find that I tire of listening itself long before any of these products forces me to take them off out of physical discomfort. My IEMs are lighter than everything else, but I still don't use them for anything other than portable listening, and occasionally for curiosity comparison at home. :shrug:, that's the great thing about having choices.

    You really don't need such mass and weight (discomfort) to achieve great headphone sound.

    Well it’s lighter than the LCD 4 and this is their first model at a headphone with AMT technology. With time they may find ways to shave more weight, but for now, the company says all that weight is necessary to achieve the sound they wanted with the current available technology.

    Not to mention that if it sounds as good or better than the LCD 4, then it would simultaneously be lighter and would be less than half the cost. If that happens, I’d say not bad for a first try.

    LCD-4 is 600 grams. HEDD is 718.

    Not sure where you got that figure, but that’s not accurate. The LCD 4 weighs around 1.62 lbs. which translates to 734 grams.

    This picture was taken straight from the Audeze.com website. Here is what they list as the weight for the LCD 4.

    Edited, didn´t realize the info I gave had already been posted.

    I think it´s best to wait and read user´s opinions on comfort before discarding the HEDD due to weight reasons.
