D8000Pro Sound - in a nutshell
The kick drum on these is amazing. It’s more present than even the Susvara. And the Susvara did magical things. I’m not gonna knock it off the top of the hill yet. The reason I love the D8000Pro, though, is because it just pushes air around like it doesn’t give a fuck, which is not very Japanese. Usually, Japanese headphones are very refined and clean. These are fun. final made a fun headphone.
When I listen to it on my TA22 DAC/amp, you get that added tube sound stage. I wanna dance to these. I feel like someone who actually enjoys music designed these. And so, in conclusion, if you power the D8000Pro right and you give them a fun DAC/Amp combo, they will perform leagues better than any <$2000 planar.
D8000Pro Limited Edition Sound - in a nutshell
Sound placement, sound movement, the fullness of it….I’m trying to think how to describe this. This sounds like a normal headphone in the same way that the Lamborghini Aventador is a normal commuter car. You get in, and you’re like, well I guess because it has a seat and a wheel it’s the same thing as a Honda Civic. It is not.
You know how when you hear something that’s got good bass extension, it feel like it’s alive? Now imagine if you could hear that feeling from 500Hz to 2500Hz. It feels like every frequency range is just excited and shaking and giving me the best of itself.
