    I assure you, this will not be the case. Congratulations on your newly ordered Z1R. I too grew up listening to Sony, so I know how it feels.

    Oh btw, you do need to give it some time before it starts to open up. It took me about 2 weeks of about 3 to 4 hrs a night for it to nicely break in. Right now it's just amazing.

    Thank you very much for the warm greetings
    It's true that I grew up on SONY
    And lots of excellent company products that I have at home
    Includes 75 "screen and ES projector
    And Top Class CD / MD players

    I'm really in such a euphoria that finally I'll have a SONY earphones R
    As early as 1986 I had MDR-3

    Just now I have to wait and see which amplifier is best for them

    To my surprise ports of the company's equipment are excellent
    For HD800 and other headphones
    Thank you very much for your support

    Just EQ out some low end if it bothers you, I don't see the problem here. :)

    But give your brain time to accept and translate the new sound signature. This is important. Let your brain learn. Unless its REALLY bad, then send it back.

    Fun fact: the burn-in effect is ALWAYS your brain adjusting to the new sound.

    Do yourself a favour and try them out with the Sony amplifiers. They pair extremely well.

    Thank you
    I really think of selling the Lexman + HD800 + BCL
    And buy the
    Only Single Problem Analog inputs are translated to digital
    So I can not enjoy the original sound
    Of CD players
    That I love so much
    But it also has other benefits like
    Blanc and DAC \ quality

    I thought just like you
    I do believe bick In

    Thanks for the suggestion

    That's a great point! Though Sony begs to differ on this regarding their amps and DAPs. :)

    I do believe Rick Inn
    What do you suggest ?

    I have experience there is a difference between her ears or an electronic component
    I bought it new
    And after use - after playing continuously for a few days.
    Sounds different
    And it does not look like my brain
    Simple changes in materials when they work
    I for example in headphones that I had a K702 only after 800 hours yes yes
    Got a good sound
    It would sound like a $ 5 earphone

    I had the Luxman P1U for a while and liked it a lot. It is clear but does not hit you over the head with any analytical sound. It can play loud without strain or pain. I did use it with my HD800.
    I moved on to my Rudistor RP010B because I like its colorations (some warmth and reserve and a harmonic bass).
    I prefer the Luxman (and my Rudistor) to the GSX2 I had for a while as a headphone amp. I guess I personally don't adhere to the wire-with-gain philosophy for my subjective listening preferences.

    I feel (as I hear it) an Apex tube amp (actually a hybrid) pairs very well with the Sony Z1R.
    Apex amps are neutral but the tubes provide blooming images and an inner glow that I like a lot.

    BUT FOR THE Z1R ....?????
    I HAVE TO SEE...

    I heard it a few times when new, then let it run for a few days without listening to it much. After a week, I put it on, and I felt there was much of a difference. The bass was less boomy, and the overall sound was more even. It sounded equally good when I moved from a heavily used PHA3 to a brand new WM1A.

    I'd be curious how the Luxman P1U does with a Sony Z1R. Looking forward to any impressions. Thanks in advance.

    It sounds like you're seeking a closed-back detail monster that's great with classical.

    I can't help but think the MrSpeakers Aeon will serve you best.

    I've done many times plugged into headphones
    CD / tuner device
    I played in sequence and for days
    Indeed the sound has changed in the number of headphones I had previously included
    All 3 pairs HD800
    Today only 2

    To be honest, I've not noticed much change in my HD800S. I used it heavily from purchase for a couple of months until I bought the Z1R. I still use it today. It's as good as it has ever been since I got it, and hasn't seemed to change one bit.
