Recommend Product: No
Pros: Nice detail
Cons: Harsh, hard treble
I heard these headphones at the HeadRoom table at the T.H.E. Show 2012 (a superb display - well done!). I compared the HD800 to the LCD-2, LCD-3 and HE-500. Athough the finish, ergonomics and sound detail was superb, I found the treble to be far too hot and ultimately did not select them. These will require a tone control for extended listening - if the treble is reduced, or a warm tube amp is used, they will likely sound quite nice. To each their own, but as a result they were third on my list.
