Push pull with the Sennheiser as they can accentuate the hiss with single triode. I’ve a pair of Stellias on the jack output where I do prefer triode. But this is just me…..

Ah, interesting, I would have expected the other way around triode mode being preferable with high impedance headphones. For example I don’t like single triode with low impedance Meze Empyrean

After two years, I tried the HD800S on a recent trip and fell in love with it. So I got the HD800 in, from a friend, for a few days. So good, still. My review and other thoughts...

Hi everybody!
I have here two pairs of HD800s - one with S/N 34335 (new) and second with S/N 1425 (very old). There is a sound difference. Old one are more spacious, have better transients and looser bass in comparsion with the new one. Is it possible? Is it just piece to piece difference, burn-in or was there some silent revision? Pads seems to be good on both.
Is there any best S/N to get?
