    Re: Balanced headphone suggestions

    I am seriously thinking the Sennheiser HD800S. I have yet to read anything bad about them, other than price. And from what I understand they are including their Balanced cable that sells for $380 in the box with them... I want comfort, accuracy, sound stage, and balanced cabling....

    So, please tell me why these are not the perfect choice...

    Awesome, if you can give the Mr Speaker Ether C or the open a listen before you buy just to be sure. Like anything headphone a lot depends on the external headphone amp, my Sennheisers seem to enjoy tubes or maybe its my ears LOL.
