Enjoy the clarity of my 800s. With a strong violectric amp. But have always missed the lack of bass. Basically could not listen to classic rock with no bass. I added the Schit Loki and I’m at end game. It simply worked. Never thought I could get bass and clarity. I’ve tried many. Just when I thought the bass was there the clarity suffered. And visa versa.
Maybe it’s my amp. But the Loki has turned my 800s and Anandas into end game products.

How's the HD800s with the TT2? I'm deciding between HD800s and ATH-ADX5000....

The HD 800S Frequency characteristic is Diffuse-field equalized .
But what exactly does that mean . Here is a statement from Sennheiser .

Just want to say listening to 800S on pass x350.8 with he9 as pre.... this thing has ****ing CRUSHING BASS. Its smashing a hole in my brain! Higher (Fjaak remix) - amelie lens. But its still fast, controlled, detailed. 800S becomes legendary with a speaker amp, holy crap I cannot believe it.
how you connect the HD800 to a speaker monoblock ?

HD800 sound gorgeous with tube amps. I have both 300b and KT88 amps. I have also ordered the HD800S because it's on special. :)
