HD700 ruined my ear holes, Male, 41, from Parts Unknown

Contributor

The HD700 is gone. This is a sad time for me, but I couldn't justify it w/ both the HD800S&HD820. Farewell old friend, long may you run! Oct 12, 2020

        This is like seeing Frodo finally dropped the ring into the fire. Good for you!

      I just kinda realized the only headphone I own that I 100% like is the HD820

        You need a Koss PortaPro. It is not perfect but for the money, it makes more sense than most things in audio.

        I had a Oculus Rift CV1 a while back and it had portapro headphone drivers built in

        They weren't bad but at that size I liked the PX100 better. But I lost my px100 and they don't sell it anymore :[

        Glad you can have a sense of humor about this whole hd700 thing, I love the new profile image haha. Like Lyander says, it’s cursed but has an odd charm to it too.

      It doesn't sound like a $484 amp though. it sounds better than some $1100 amps I've used - and tubes can be moved to another device.

        I haven't tried cap mod yet, apparently that helps open it up/increases detail on some headphones. I am using HD8xx series so dont need any additional opening up/increased detail :) But might be helpful for HD650 etc. On HD8xx the LP works really well stock (which is a feat within itself).

        I would like to try more stuff there just ain't much that fits my oddball needs haha and I've tried most of it that did, other than schitt because hd800 owners said Schitt stuff (even tubed) had grainy treble and was a bad match

        LP is by far best match I've found thus far that fits my use case.

        SW51+ FTW. Looking forward to finally hearing one... mine is in the current batch being assembled. ogodei has two amps for sale in his Ampocalypse that are generally well liked with the HD800 series. EC ZDS and Woo WA5.

        The wa5le comes the closest to what i would be looking for w/ Balanced I/O
        & Chassis split up into 2 smaller pieces I could rearrange instead of 1 giant one.

        And I knew about this one but the price is off the hook starting at $3700. A $484 LP and some premium tubes is still less than 1/5 the price of this, and I'd rather spend that much money on headphones etc. Don't want to > $2k on amp and do want balance I/O

        I mean doesn't everyone booby trap their equipment in case an unauthorized user attempts to touch it?

        Just "roll" the tube so it's vertically aligned. I would think the pins should still make good contact. Still, rather annoying just knowing it's crooked.

        Ah it don't really bug me was just goofing around w/ my profile pic :) Plus if you look at the LP stock photo on monoprice.com the left tube is crooked, so maybe its a feature heh

        That's why we need balance controls back on amps.
