    The HD800 needs improvement in the bass. For sennheiser to make a closed back version of the HD800 and not improve the bass, if that’s what they’ve actually done, then I think they made a mistake. By improved I mean more subass and bass. I could see HD800 owners owning both if that’s the case but not both if they sound exactly the same. What could’ve been cool is a closed HD820 with a variable bass dial like the HD 630DB. That way people could tailor the bass to their tastes.

    Yes the HD800 definitely needs more bass, that is the first thing I noticed with mine a few years back when I owned it. Also voices sounded dry and the treble was too bright. The soundstage was unnaturally wide, but I guess that is a plus for many. I couldn’t enjoy the music with it’s presentation. Even plugged to my Lyr tube amp. I hope the sound signature of the 820 is the HD650 with the resolution of the HD800.

    I enjoy watching that channel, but it's not exactly the first place I go for headphone information.

    Totally my feelings.

    It is as bad as going to Linus for actual hardware advice :darthsmile:

    Not that I don't like to watch Linus videos, just not take advice from there :floatsmile:

    Ok one more final question... Did the cushions from 820 will fit the 800? Anyone knows?
  8. Dobrescu George
    I want to know this as well @Sennheiser

    If they did, I suspect it would have a significant impact on the sound, and possibly not a good one.

    Agree, but the video is helpful enough as far as first impressions - like the Bass comment

    Mm...yeah, I noticed the thicker pads. Canjam New York 2018 is upcoming. We ll surely have better listening impressions from fellow headfiers.
