I guess I might bite the bullet and add these to my collection

Reasoning:

I really like my K701s and SA5000s

The look of the SA5000 is hot to me but I hate how the cable make so much damn noise

The removable cables on the HD800 are definitely a nice touch

Buying blind(err deaf) is fun and no one close to me will ever really get a HD800 ><

A.Thorsen's review comparing them against the HD800 gives me some faith

Anyone get a chance to hear them straight out of say... an ipod or PSP?

My dedicated player is a umpc with a tiny bit better dac/amp

If they're decent with a puny amps, I'll be ecstatic

I have dyslexia and a reading/vision disability, it helps when composing to have white space at the bottom of my posts.

Can't you remove it before clicking submit? There is a ton of white space at the bottom of all my posts while I'm composing them without the period.

Was that a joke? These things are going to require a serious amplifier. I can't stand my PSP's sound with the KSC75. I think you would get much much higher quality with the HD600, a gamma1, and an M^3 at half the price then the HD800 out of an iPod.

The Amp on my PSP is enough for my SA5000s or UE-10 Pros

It's a little bit quiet for K701s when I need to eq/convolv for bass boost(Ditto for the HD650s or HD600s) and I can get some volume for my K1000s(which would be the extreme end)

I really hope the HD800s sound decent out of a puny amp(like the SA5000s do) and leave enough room for some eq/convolv magic

I have my O2MKII's (which I think Dinny is familiar with ;) ) and I'll try to do something in the way of a BHSE/O2MKII and XXX/HD800. I'd love to do it on Todd's 307A setup and may get the chance since I'm probably going to balance a pair of HD800s for Todd tomorrow morning. :)

Good job on Balancing my HD800 for Todd, it turned out well! I gave him another XLR and was wondering if he had you balance the other pair at the end of CanJam?

I just did the one pair for Todd and Dan's HF-2s. That took long enough and I wanted to have some fun! :)

The HD800 cable is interesting. I've got a remnant to make Todd a 4-pin to 1/4" adapter so I'll post a picture or two when I get to working on it.

One thing I didn't greatly care for with the cable is the rather short "bridle" (what do you call the section of the cable where it splits from single to dual-entry at the ear cups?), which isn't ideal for the bigger-headed (more horse-jawed?) of us.

Y Cable Split - Stereo to Dual Mono :P

On a more serious note... was it tight around your neck? I have a big head so it'll be something I'd have to take into consideration

I heard the same comment from a few folks there.

Cool. I'm fortunate enough to already have a APS V3 SE and dual 3-pin adapter already. I might ask him about sending me a stock HD800 plug if he does balance another pair (or buying it back - I assumed it was in the box).

Sorry you didn't like my observations about the HF-2. But I think they will be proven to be true.

Do tell how someone is going to prove your outrageous theory.

edit: I'm not interested in further derailing this thread, I'll just temp ban you.
