    you gotta have a good amplifier to get the best sound out of them. on a mobile device, you need a good headphone amp. your phone on its own with lossy files is not going to bring out the difference over something that costs 10% of the price

    Gotta be honest here, even though I’m digging the makeshift glass enclosure, the cans themselves look a bit cheap compared to the 800s. The bridge looks like it’s made of flimsy plastic with no real support. And even though this matte black looks stealthy, it keeps making me think they didn’t even try to put any real work into the appearance of them. All in all, they should have just released another version of the 800 or 800S , but with the added glass enclosure. Maybe even updated some colors for them in mirror finish chrome, gold, and copper. Cans like this should scream “Hey, look at me!” Not look like a set of trash phones bought at 5below. That bridge looks like it would melt like wax in direct sunlight. Looking like these were designed by a guy who got called into work on his day off. I’m not feeling them.

      A lot more acoustic technology and research went into it than that. I can tell you from the get go that if you close a headphone designed to be open back it will sound like crap because of the resonances. This headhpone has different drivers and materials compared to the HD 800. Also, they have resonance dampers placed on the spots where the sound will be reflected from the concave glass.
      In the audio world where cheap cables can cost like 10k, these headhpones are one of the few that have their cost warranted, at least partly.
