WHY are people upvoting the HD800S so much? It's a marginal improvement on an older flagship that is still quite good, but certainly overshadowed by many of the newer high-end cans out there. It's kind of an embarassment of riches in the industry right now- so many excellent high-end cans... Is it because with the HD6xx, Sennheiser has proven that it will play ball, so an HD800S drop is considered a safe bet as far being offered a truly smoking deal? That's the only benefit I see, frankly. I mean how about a Focal Elear or Utopia drop? Or the MDR-Z1R? We all want the HD800S? Really? The HD800 can be easily modded to be just as good, and it's been out for almost 10 years... Frankly, if you haven't been able to find and score a deal on the HD800 over the last near-decade, you haven't been trying hard enough. Dunno if a drop should be wasted on this versus something truly special that is legitimately difficult to find a deal on... I'd be a lot more interested if it was a Senn HD8xx... Where Senn takes whatever older HD800 cans they have lying around, mods them for MD, and drops those. That at least would be unique, and perhaps even an improvement over the still somewhat bass-shy and occasionally too-bright HD800S.
