Dear All, I am selling my headphone audio system. Original online price of all system components: 5 500 USD ; Selling price: 2 900 USD (+ post). Wonderful fully balanced audio system for Germany Sennheiser HD800 with top USA fully balanced lamp amplifier WA22 (best for HD800) and DAC Yulong Sabre DA8. Sennheiser balanced pro cable. Upgraded Power, Driver (Sylvania), Rectifier tubes (Sophia Princess) (hand picked tested tubes). Everything in ideal condition. Sennheiser HD800 headphones and Woo Audio WA22 integrated headphone amp configured in fully balanced configuration is one of the best audio systems. Tremble and midrange performance are as good or better than any headphone or two-channel standalone system I have experienced. Bass is very satisfying and will only be bettered by the very best fullrange speaker and subwoofer systems. Original online price of all system components: 5 500 USD; Selling price: 2 900 USD (+ post) Location: South East Asia, Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur
Finally got a hold of pair of these and must say they are a worthy upgrade, although, it probably won't be as significant of a difference to those who have not owned or experienced the original HD800. The build quality, I feel is better - partially due to the black, I just think it will be less prone to paint chipping. It almost looked like rubber at first. It fits slightly different than the original. Secondly, it comes with both standard 1/4" cable and 4-pin balanced XLR cable. Now that is something that every company should do. Sonically, for those that felt the HD800s were too shrill or harsh, this should address that complaint. There is also more presence in the low/mids which should please many. There may be a small segment of HD800 enthusiasts that might find these slightly muddy at the highs, but I think it results in a nice balance. What I am saying is that these are not LCDs now; they're still HD800s, they're just a little more forward and balanced. For me, the HD800s/HD800S are the best sub $2K headphone that you can run with a reasonably priced system. They're fairly easy to drive, especially, when you compare them to AKG K1000 or HE-6. Still burning these in so will provide more insight, but so far find them to be worth the extra money if you're looking at buying new or if your HD800s are starting to age. Also, can someone help me figure out why I can't post in the classifieds? My friend dropped out so I have an extra pair of HD800S that I can let go for $1,500 + PP fees/shipping. I know a lot of sites require a certain number of posts, but I am not seeing that requirement.
