Got a pair of HD800s on the used market as well a few months ago and yes def very good high end headphones. The sound stage and details are amazing. What are you using for a dac/amp?
Wind chaser, I’m not a bass head by any stretch but I don’t feel I’m lacking bass with the HD 800S, I guess it would be a matter of personal taste.
I finally had the opportunity to hear the 800S 2 days ago. I don't remember the make or model of the HA but it sells for a little less than 4K CAD. Anyhow streaming some very familiar music via TIDAL, the one thing above all that stood out for me was a noticeably light bottom end. So I asked if these were brand new cans since they just took them out of the box, and they figured they had maybe 10 hours on them. Would more time help the bass form? Was the HA a poor match? I don't know, but midrange was very open, clean and detailed.
Hey Jerry!Absolutely you do not have to spend megabucks to have a great listening experience!I have many combinations that make me smile and some cost less than $1K for the entire system including headphones.I think we all like to try new stuff, and thats part of the Headphone Mania and sharing these experiences. I think most of us would like to have several sets of cans in house, especially the HD800's....Listening right now with BH Crack and T90's and smiling!Enjoy the music!Alex
You dont have to spend megabcks to have a good sound with headhones....gosh a $99 Schitt Magni3, a Schitt Modia Dac $99 or $249 for the multibit version) and a set of $-300 -$600 headphones and you can be very happy.
