    You can remove it but I wouldn’t. The cloth is a dust cover, so it protects your drivers. In addition, it also tunes the sound by slightly decreasing the treble and it prevents resonance.

    No you cant remove those... Cmon man use common sense... Its there for a reason!!! To protect drivers from dust and hairs.
    About adapter: They dont include adapter because none of portable amp is capable of driving these headphones to full potential... Portables can drive it well, but nowhere near to its full potential. If you never plan on using these with desktop amp i think youre made a mistake by buying these... There are better choices for portable amps n dacs.

    Please don't be so condescending, if you had bothered to read a page or two back, you would know that i do have amps and gear that can drive these, but that it is at my place overseas and i won't be back for a few weeks. Next time do not assume so much about what gear i have and do not have. As for the dust covers i was just asking, because they are loose and can easily be removed so i was just wondering.

    Seems logical to me not to include such adapter, since they are not fit for portable use..Personally I would not remove the black cloth, it protects the drivers and I can't imagine sonical benefits..

    but hey, time flies.. :)

    Don’t remove anything and after buying a couple of refrence cans, no one supplies an adapter. I do remember back in the day dr Dre beats did but that figures.

    This may seem random. New HD800s owner and love these headphones. Do the HD800S suffer from the same paint chipping issue as on the normal HD800?. The black parts of this headphone appear to be unpainted. I'd like to keep them in the best shape possible.

    Haven't chipped yet here. :)

    Hrmm, unfortunate news...the right swivel on the headphones, the part closest to the headband, I think the spring came loose, there is a distinct clatter that isn't present in the left earcup, and it also does not offer the same level of resistance. Kinda bummed since I haven't even had these a month and they have literally only sat on a headphone stand with no one but myself using them. Has anyone else experienced this? I don't want to void my warranty but also would feel annoyed having to ship them in for repairs so soon after purchase, and be without them while I wait. If it's an easy fix of reattaching the spring, I'd likely rather do it myself if Senn gave the ok, plan on contacting them shortly. It doesn't actually affect the headphones performance in any way, but also, for the price, I am a bit annoyed that any part is loose or unreliable. Anyone else had this happen?

    No issues here but then again I keep them at home and away from kids and animals.

    So I got in on the Massdrop HD6XX because I was always curious as to how they sound knowing many people love them.
    I was wondering if the balanced XLR cable which came with my 800S will work with the 6XX? Thanks!

    It has happened to me before. I shipped them back and Sennheiser repaired them for free under warranty. I got them back in about 1 week.
