    If you love classical music and opera, go with AKG's flagship K812. HD800 may have more bass but cannot hold a wick to K812's lifelike details and clarity. K812 gives you front row seats in a concert (great for chamber music!), while HD800 puts you in Row P-W. I personally prefer the closer soundstage, and have owned AKG's for 30+ years of happy classical music listening. The K812 just puts a smile on my face every time.

    I plan to audition the Sony Z1R soon and will post my impressions. I need a closed-back can for the bedroom.

    FWIW, I think the K812 has more bass than the HD800. As far as closed headphones go, the Z1Rs are one of my top picks! Love my pair!

    MacedonianHero, how would you compare the Sony Z1R to the Denon DH7200 ?? I'm intrested in knowing your opinion since I've found that many times I'm consistently aligned with your audio-sensations
    Since I have a lot of experience with the HD800
    And now the ZIR
    The width of the stage depth and height is very impressive with the Z1R
    Very close to the HD800

    With all my reference discs on this subject.
    Shostakovich Symphony No. 5 Bernard Hitnik with DECCA
    Or Bernstein conducts Mahler's Symphony No. 4 of SONY 1960
    This is just some examples.

    I can say with certainty that the Z1R has this wonderful ability. 3D

    I got to hear the D7200s a month ago and really liked them. I'm so glad that Denon went back and corrected the blunder that was the DH7100. That said, the Z1Rs offer a substantially improved sound stage, better defined bass, more up front mids and a smoother overall presentation.

    Well looks we've need to continually switch to another z1r thread:upside_down:

    Honestly, I have never seen such diversity on such headphones and that so many threads being locked....and people still moving on to share experiences about it. The Z1R May be the only one that set such records

    Funny how it's just a limited number of members who cause this? :wink:

    Soon I will get a pair of MDR-Z1R's my self. Like @SONYES i listen exclusively to classical music and have some decent Hi-res albums, roughly 4% of my collection rest 96% is CD quality flac

    After listening to the Z7M2 I actually wish there's something that could combine the open atmosphere of the Z7M2 and the Z1R sound. The Z1R atmosphere is overwhelming at times and then you face a sudden "disappearance" of the soundstage; that feeling is tricky. Also the foam inside the Z1R earpads seem too soft for me so they stick to my cheeks like I can't get rid of them.
