Seriously the 812 is #1? After listening and regarding measurements they are a tad over analytic and especially the peaks in the highs annoyed me... That's why I always would choose - if i could - Stax first, more the rectangular ones, then Audeze (that's why I added them) and only as a 3rd place the Sennheisers 800S. They should be less annoying now after some changes they made.

STAX products are not supported everywhere. Don't know what country you are living in. You would be wise to look into this wherever you are. They are premium priced products but they would not be covered under warranty if you could acquire them at all. I owned STAX headphones years ago. Nothing compares. It is unfortunate that they filed for bankruptcy. A Chinese company purchased them afterwards but they have never been what they once were as a company.

Good hint! I am Germany based, so that's not an issue for me. Warranty is something to be checked at any price range, I guess. I just owned the first "in ear" version which I didn't like, but I know the big ones for many years and love them. Last time I checked a big rectangle model my result was "sounds exactly like home in the big speakers" (FR electrostatics) so I didn't have that urge to have them ;) Didn't now they went bankrupt! When did that happen? It's always the Problem what investors are after. Keep the heritage or squeeze it like a juicy orange to get all (profit) out - and then throw it away maybe...
