Agreed. For me, for (1) more simple arrangements, (2) easy listening sessions, and (3) badly recorded tracks, technicality is not really a must. Then the HD600 takes over. Once HD800 is "fixed", they both have very similar tonality anyway. HD800 is truly like a super HD600. HD600 is like 85% of HD800's technicality, but "fixed" HD800 is like 95% of HD600's tonality. I think Sennheiser really got tonality spot on with their earlier headphones. And they got technicalities spot on with the HD800. And this is coming from someone who has tried a lot of TOTL cans out there.
