What a pity. The 820 is not displayed ( I believe) at CanJam London. So I can’t listen to it

Too bad I could not see the 820 anywhere at CanJam London to try it.

I spent some time yesterday at a Woo Audio event A - B'ing the HD820 to the HD800. HD820 sounded more nasally in the vocals to me. Some howmore 'toney' for sure.

These headphones just break my heart, I love the look & innovation involved ,but I honestly can't say I prefer them in any regard to my 800's or Eikons. I'd love to be able to spend a week or 2 with these & see if my opinion changes.

I decided I don’t like mine. They’re so horrible I took them in the backyard and lit them on fire and roasted marshmallows for s’mores over them.

Actually, I put my Utopias up for sale the other day because I won’t be listening to them anymore between the Susvaras and the HD820s. Never could get used to the overly compressed soundstage. Also put in an order for a Stax SR-009S and BHSE. :)

Now wait just one minute, no matter what is said the new HD820 isn’t no where near Utopia. The only reason to sell the Utopia’s is to recoup some funds (ME lol) and/or to go get new toys. purely not because the Utopia is inferior to the HD820.

@QueueCumber isn't the first to complain about the utopia's "soundstage". that said, it's not an issue for me in a headphone and i'd take the utopia's tone over the hd800/s every time. still looking forward to auditioning the hd820 tho.

I’ve always wondered if Susvaras sound was worth it.... I’d have to sell everything to justify keeping them. I really like having a variety of things but not too extreme.

If there is anyone who got them yet and use them for mixing and not just a audiophile experience then please let me know your impressions on how they translate. Still waiting for mine to arrive and the delays are still annoying to me.

Ok, soundstage on the Hd800/S is huge, but how can you deem a soundstage being artificial ? Lol, is there a definition to it ?
