Can HD800 treble peak cause hearing damage? in Portable Audio, Headphones and Desktop Audio Posted September 27, 2019 · Edited September 27, 2019 by s4turn I did find mine a little on the sharp side when using solid state setup, but then changed to an Aune T1 (DAC, tube preamp with golden lion, SS amp - all in one) and it smoothed the sound out. Now running SMSL Sanskritt 6th edition with a darkvoice and have no issues with that treble spike. I have no regrets purchasing these headphones. Onto the 4th year now and replaced earpads/headband and new lighter cables and they feel brand new! everyone has different head shapes/sizes, would recommend testing these. Headphones are such as subjective item.. mine fit perfectly and I dont even notice them after 10 minutes of wearing. (usually wear them for hours) Would highly recommend these!
