As for those HD800 I find they are very picky in terms of what powers them and because of that I don't like really care for them. Plus they really lack bass.
Since this thread has gotten kind of active I'll post up some photos of some of the sickest headphones I've had the pleasure of listening to.
You guys can play a guessing game as to what some of them are...hint there's an Orpheus hidden in one of these photos.
Yes you presume right, but I am sure you already know this .
I did get a Liquid Fire amp and a W4S DAC1 with the upgraded caps last Friday to pair with my HE-6's, I am still braking-in this combo but so far this combo sounds very promising.
Here's a list of some of your current headphones taken from your profile on Head-Fi.
Edition 9 (APS V3 balanced), Denon D2000 (Amboyna Burl cups, JMoney ear pads, Markl moded and recabled with APS V3 balanced), JVC/Victor DX1000 Zeus cable balanced, Denon D7000 balanced with JMoney ear pads, ATH-ESW10JPN, T1 Zeus balanced, HD800 with DHC Complement balanced cable, HE-6 with balanced Zeus cable.
Very impressive gear, but I still like my 300B's better than yours.
