I'm going to ask this on the Master 9 thread but has anyone had any experience pairing the HD800S with the Master 9? I am now listening to the HD800 with the Master 9, which I have done before but for the first time I am using High gain on it. I rarely use the High gain because I am afraid of getting to adjusted to wanting it all of the time. Sounds strange but it is kind of like how I try not to add too much spice into my food because the rest of my family cannot eat spicy so if I start getting too used to eating spicy flavour, I will not enjoy the food as much when I eat with my family, which is more important to me. Just wondering if I should go for an HD800S since I need a replacement cable for my HD800 anyway and the HD800S comes with two cables. The rubber coating on the cable about 2-3 inches down from the connection to the HP has opened and the wire itself is not exposed. Once in a while the sound goes out on that side because of this.
