gLer said:1. Just for curiosity's sake [member=19111]gLer[/member] will you be buying this headphone or not? Thanks for the effort for reviewing this.
No, I won't, not in the immediate future anyway. The reason is simple: I've switched over entirely from high-end desktop listening (full size headphones) to high-end IEMs. Sold all my headphones (LCD-3, Auteur, and HD800, along with my Audio-gd R-28 amp/dac which would have easily driven the HEDD too). Hypothetically speaking, if I were to get back into headphones right now, this is the first headphone I'd buy, no question. I'll give brief one-line comparisons below between the HEDD and the headphones I A/B listened to alongside it in case you're interested).
Hi [member=19111]gLer[/member] , out of curiosity what are you finding in high end iems that you aren't getting from headphones? Is it a matter of technicalities or simply comfort (and maybe convenience?)
