Hello darkness my old friend……  I must have a dozen versions, covers, etc. The intro still give me goosebumps after 50 years  
Looking for cable recommendations for sennheiser HD800s
@larsman thanks, but I have already purchased the lavricables.  
Looking for cable recommendations for sennheiser HD800s
@soix - yep, always patient with my final conclusion, but I did pay lavricable for the 100 hour burn in service (as it was not much money) so I feel comfortable that we are mostly there.

@soix  1- timing might have more to do with our wives, rather than who’s a better man😀……. 2- listening observations.  Compared to the baseline OEM senn cables, it feels like a veil has been lifted.  The lavicables have more air around the mids a...

All in one unit for headphones- help me decide
All-  I ordered the Naim atom headphone edition, and should take delivery on Saturday.  So thanks everyone for your advice, comments, and help in my decision.  I’ll follow up with a post in a week or so to let you know my listening experience.   
All in one unit for headphones- help me decide
@soix - point well taken.  I am treading a bit softly here as the last time I really lived with headphones was in college 40+ years ago (had stax electrostats back then).  So perhaps I view this in two steps, with the second more expensive step go...
