    I find it to be the polar opposite, if they don't do well on first impression they find their way on the classifieds eventually.

    I find that ones that impress right off the bat usually are bright or too bassy in the long run.

    Not sure either way, TBH. First listen on Susvara I didn't like, but fairly quickly they ended up being the best I've ever heard. Utopia I loved at first listen, but quickly found that the treble can be grating with some recordings, and of course soundstage is not so large. I still think they are great headphones. I didn't like the 800S right off the bat, and they never grew on me. I don't love or hate the 820, but I feel like they do an excellent job across multiple parameters that make listening on them enjoyable for me. As such, I am very satisfied with them. It's hard to love anything after the Susvaras for me. They've ruined me for most headphones. Just like my ex-wife ruined me for future relationships... lol

    likewise. i've found that spending more time with a headphone confirms my initial impression.

    Umm, then you should just get another ex-wife of the same model.

    I've been looking for the same model as my ex-wife that's the same age as my ex-wife when I met her... :ksc75smile:

    This was the case for me when I purchased a Audio technica M50x a long time ago. It's good to experience this kind of experience early in your headphone journey lol

    I finally found a pair of used Susvaras at a price I could stomach. I’ll be able to run some comparisons after next week. Chances are I’ll sell my Utopias now. The Susvaras came extremely close to their level of detail, but had much better instrument separation and soundstage. The downside being they are a pain in the arse to drive. The 820 and Susvara will make an excellent closed-back/open-back combo for me. I just have to figure out if I want to pick up another iCan for them or try something else with a small footprint that will work in my bedroom.

    If anyone has recommendations that would be a good match with the Susvara and 820, would love to try some stuff out.

    I was using an iFi Pro iCan previously. I liked it being fed by the Hugo2.

    I’ve heard great things about it with the Susvara previously.
