    I knew they'd do something with all those leftover HD630VB drivers...

    Agree, and as Jude pointed out, it is supposed to be that way, it was designed for that particular response. A "proper" headphone response should be uneven, in the right places.

    I thought you said before that the Z1R had a bit of an 8K treble spike? I don’t see that in this measurement at all. I guess it’s like about 3200kHz.

    From memory to all of those who are now afraid that the HD820 has a Z1R like bass, rest assured, the perceived bass on the Sony is much more intense. Much more.

    And extremely clean and controlled for a closed back. I don’t think any other closed headphones can do this

    i'm not sure what constitutes a "proper" headphone response but i doubt that an uneven fr approaches it

    A bit of a weird question but I'm intersted in some opinions.
    Let's say the HD800S costs 1500€. How much would you value the HD820 at, the full 2400€ or less?

    When I saw the HD820 graph, I was reminded on the HD8DJ graph on Inner Fidelity. It shows the same dip centered around 250 Hz. I had it for a short period of time and found it quite good sounding.

    You need to try more closed phones. The Z1R is fun but hardly the very best in bass quality and many instance the bass is always there when it isn't called for. I do enjoy the Z1R but a properly driven HD800s killed it handily for me. Driving the HD800s out of a portable device doesn't not count no matter how good those DAPs are.

    Want to add that what is special about the Z1R is it's rather impressive soundstage for being a closed headphones. If Sony had the ability to chop down those 200 year old Zelkeva tree, I am sure that they would have done that in a heartbeat.

    As this is a niche-niche market, for which they had to do all the development, the extra is justified.
