In that case, might as well aim for the HD800S used. From what I understand, it's not just the damping material, but also some engineering that went into taming the 6Khz peak. Also, there's another HD800 mod popular recently, Tyll was talking about it here

Yummy, but as always, HD800/S is half of a complete system. Jude made a review of the Woo WA8 which he said pairs very nicely with the Senn. It also costs as much as the Senns too. Grumble.

Anax mod is passe. Super Dupont Resonator mod is the in thing.  brows.gif
What the heck? The classy name is just a foamy eartip jammed into the cylinder.

This is genius!!

Taurus MKii > HD800. Awesome combo.

Does anyone have the HD800 original 4-pin balanced cable or is it better to go aftermarket?

Can attest that the Taurus Mkii is good on the HD800S though I still prefer the Schiit Ragnarok despite Tyll calling it lifeless  tongue.gif

I'm sure Raggy has its merits, but I have two dudes calling the Raggy "just a lot of power". Hey, isn't that a perfect straight wire with gain? Lol.

Portable audio and IEMs I can play all day, but a desktop system I (hopefully) buy one set and get it right. Taurus looks and sounds good, and SE and balanced has two distinct signatures so that appeals to the Cina in me. Hope to test the Yggy/Rag stack one day, amongst all the top, top stuff Tyll tried out in Big Sound 2015.

I'm sure Jason Stoddard would have nicer words for Raggy.

I'm trying to get a few people to buy the HD800 Super Dupont Resonator mod together so it'll be cheaper. If interested please visit the sale page below.
