Truly interested in these. I’ve been debating purchasing these over the RAAL SR1a’s. I know I would have to use at least a 100w Amp with the RAAL’s but that’s fine. Currently using the OG HD800’s (about 6-years old now) and just recently (just today actually) upgraded my DAC/AMP to the newest RME ADI-2 (4493 Chip) and just purchased the Monoprice THX AAA 887 headphone amp, both will arrive before end of week. Any input or thoughts would be much appreciated in my coming decision.
Side note; I haven’t found suitable replacement (at least to my ears) for the HD800’s since purchased over 6+ years ago. For reference, I currently own HD660s at my office, I purchased the Focal Utopias a few years back but returned them after about a month of use as I could not justify the price to performance, especially when my HD800’s pretty much did most of what it did but better. I have/had many headphones in between those as well (mainly mid-fi stuff). But here I am, slightly excited at the thought of a possible “upgrade” to my HD800’s after many years of use. Any input on my decision would be greatly appreciated, I’am completely new to this forum.
Thanks in advance!
