Welcome to Headphone Heights, the place for all your ear bud discussion

I di dnot find the HD800 *bright* at all when partnered with a decent source...

and found T1 rather dull comparatively.

I suspect that the HD800's latest revisions might be two folds. One: any hardware companies need a *new* model every so often to stimulate the sales, two: they realised bulk of 'phone users typically use a crap source. As I walked around with my amps and cables in tow at the show, HD800 sounded horrendous on digital files on a laptop tethered to an external DAC or low end DVD players.

Only when I've encountered a 10k+ source ( Meridian 800 series DVD/CD player ) I realised how capable the HD800 was. Incidentally this was the Sennheiser USA booth who had a sense to bring a decent source to show case their ware.

IME, nothing was wrong with the original HD800 even with a bog standard kettle leads. ( with my amps )
