    I also use the HDV 820 with the 800s and the sound is incredible. More bass slam than with the HDV 800 and also sweeter treble.

    OT but i actually lol'd a little bit for that comment. Imagine reading this in the HD820 manual:
    "For optimal listening experience, Sennheiser recommends shaving your head bald for perfect fit every listening session."

    Nicely wired rig.

    The problem with them is they don't go into what they hate about the product I trust reviewers more that have balls to bash a product without being afraid of losing their free bees lol.... But damn if I got free units to review I would say good things too lmao

    This is it exactly. And if you have a light seal, the bass is also light. If you have a tighter seal (via adjustment) the bass 'fills in' the bottom of the headphone from side to side, a common bass distortion on closed headphones....but obviously unacceptable at the 820 price, especially considering a LCD-2 Closed and MrSpeakers Ether C have no such problem whatsoever..

    I tried not to think about it, and just enjoyed the clean top and clear open midrange, but it eventually got to me again.

    Thanks so much, very useful for us Z1R owners that like them, I am not planning to part with them yet.

    The z1r are a great pair of headphones like any headphone you will have flaws but realistically if the hd820 was a clear upgrade to them I would admit to it. But in all honesty what you're paying for what your me getting well it's just not worth it if you dished out your hard earned money already. Enjoy your cans and when a good deal comes up and you feel like it's the right move to make get them. But for now I think I am going to wait for a Bluetooth version of a hd820 because to me then that massive asking price is worth it imo

    I find the 820 to be the much better headphone, except for the inconsistent bass due to the dodgy fit. If they could design a decent set of pads for them, they'd have a winner. Either that or design a tighter fitting headband and build vents in the earcups.

    Yeah not me though. I find the z1r to be the fun and exiting headphone while the hd820 is more reference well kind of reference anyway

    Again the HD820 fits my skull perfectly. So maybe this is an isolated problem for some users. I just did put them on and had a great sound from the start. If for you the fit is off, there will probably be no cure for that. I would have bought it. But I have the HD800SD plus the Z1R and Z7. I found no reason to jump on HD820 right now. Might wait this out and get a used one in a few years though.

    Having two optional pads, velour for those who want less warmth and a bit more spacious sound, at the cost of more leakage and a bit more treble, all leather / pleather for better seal, more bass, and perhaps adjustable venting (to make them a bit semi-open allowing for less resonance, or keep them stock) would be a nice interesting upgrade if they ever decide to make an upscale HD820s model. I'm sure there are other small changes to address customer feedback possible.

    Would the Dekoni pads do the trick? https://dekoniaudio.com/product/dek...rid-ear-pads-for-sennheiser-hd800-headphones/
    Seems they work for the 820 as well. Anyone having experience with Dekoni?

    They've bashed lots of things.
