    MrSpeakers Voce og HD800

    Tenkte jeg skulle dele litt av min erfaring med MrSpeaker Voce og litt om hvordan de er mot HD800 som er en klokke mange kjenner. Skrev dette på engelsk mtp et annet forum men legger det ut her hvis noen måtte ha interresse av MrSpeakers Voce Kanskje også noen flere her kan dele litt rundt disse.

    I have now had the MrSpeakers Voce in my collection for about 2 months and been using them on a daily basis. The headphones i have in my weekly rotation are the HD800, Shure 1540 for closed back listening and Shure 846 when i am on the go. And the short story is that the Voce surpasses them all in just about every category.

    Other headphones i currently own are the HD700, Fidelio X2, Shure 535, Sennheiser HD600, Audio Technica 50, Beyer dt-770 and a bunch of lowfi cans. Some high end cans i have owned are the Audeze LC 2.2 and Stax L500. The Amps i currently use is the Auralic Taurus mk1 for the dynamic and a Stax SRM-353x and Stax SRM-006ts for the electrostatic phones. They are both connected to a Hegel HD25 DAC and i am using a PC as source.

    I have been using the HD800 daily now for almost 6 years. I have had many other headphones that came and went but the clarity, resolution and sound stage of the HD800 has made them a stayer. However the treble on HD800 can be quite hard on certain recordings. I also use the headphones for gaming and the pin point accuracy of spacial positioning in games is the best i have heard with the HD800. So why the Voce?

    A few months ago i was passing by one of the largest hifi-stores in Norway and i had some time to kill and went in to look and listen to the headphone selection. The seller asked me what i was looking for in a headphone which i explained clarity and resolution and i ended up in the electrostatic corner. I have heard most of the top end dynamic headphones but never paid any attention to the electrostatic before. I was given a set of Stax L700 pared with a SRM-006ts and was taken by surprise of the amazing sound quality. Had a set of HD800s and did some A/B testing and the electrostatic phones definitely had some interesting qualities.

    The week after i got a great deal on a Stax 006ts and a set of L500 phones and jumped on. After a week with these i was missing something compared to the L700 and went back to the store. Again i listen through all the Stax models including SR007&009 and concluded on the L700 as the way to go. However they had a pair of Voce phones that i hadnt listen because of price but i had a go. Long story short i went home with a set of Voce headphones.

    Before i talk about the sound i say a few words about the build quality of the Voce. The Lamda series from Stax is a joke when it come to build quality. Yes, they sound good, but i have 100dollar headphones with better quality feel compared to the Lamda series. The Voce on the other hand would give even the most picky German engineers goose bumps. It looks and feels as a 3000dollar headphone. The subtle beed blasted finish on the cans, the super light but unbreakable Nitinol metal headband and the soft leather pads. Stax needs to step up their game. The walnut display case that is included also adds to the quality feeling.

    When it comes to the sound quality the Voce has the resolution of the sr009 and the L700 but the Voce also has a fantastic low end. Comparing the Voce to the HD800 it surpasses them in all areas exept maybe the with og the sound stage. Where the HD800 are harsh the Voce is smooth as silk, where the HD800 is light (however accurate) in the low end the Voce has a rich and deep bass without loss of resolution. I have also been very surprised with the speed and dynamics of the Voce. The 88mm driver has an amazing respons and the attack is without competition compared to my other headphones. They have the resolution, clarity of the HD800 but adds a wonderful low end and a smoothness that the HD800 lacks.

    One of the other qualities i really like with the HD800 is that i can have them on the head for 5 hours straight without any hotspots and issues. This also goes for the Voce with the expetion that the leather pads be a bit warm on hot days. Also i wish that they had a bit longer cable but they are user replaceable so i am sure longer ones will be available.

    In conclusion the Voce is the best headphones i have ever heard and i literally feel i treat myself when i put them on in the evening, sit back and listen to its smooth tones. If you are in the market for some high en cans you need to give them a listen.

    A final note i would like to add. The wooden case that came with my cans had some blemishes on top (probably some glue residue). I contacted the seller and he contacted MrSpeakers. Meanwhile i sent a email to MrSpeaker to get some advice on what amps they recommend. Was a bit surprised when i got a long reply from Dan himself with several of his own recommendations. And about the wooden display box, Dan sent me a spanking new one to me in Norway and i could keep the old one, awesome. Thank you to Dan for the great service and also for making the worlds best headphones!

    Takk for at du tok deg tid til å poste en litt grundig omtale. Dan er helt utrolig fortiden! Han har en fin filosofi som han jobber hardt for å få til. Jeg traff ham på canjam london og jeg synes det er en flott fyr. Anbefaler en av Tyll sine siste videoer der han besøker mrspeakers. Når der er sagt er det vel knapt noen hodetelefon som klarer seg så godt som Stax lambda. Det finnes mange sett som ble kjøpt på 70tallet som fortsatt fungerer strålende! Der er jeg uenig.

    Takk for det. Tenkte jeg kunne dele mine inntrykk da det ikke ligger for mye om Voce online.

    Tviler ikke på at Lamda serien holder godt da jeg ser de dukker opp sett på brukten både 10 og 15 år gamle som viser at de tåler tidens tann. De føles derimot ikke veldig eksklusive når man holder de i hånden. Har nok mest med forventninger å gjøre fra min side men når hodetelefoner passerer 10k forventer jeg en viss byggekvalitet og materialvalg som ser og føles godt ut i hånden (ja, jeg er ingeniør). Ikke noe å si på lydkvaliteten til Lamda serien derimot, har et par L700 på ønskelista.

    Videoen du nevner er meget bra uavhengig om man vurderer å kjøpe Voce eller ei. Legger inn en link til den så kan de som ikke ha sett den også ta en kikk.



    Fant også en liten test hos moon audio der Voce får 40/40 poeng.

    Haha nei, du har rett i at de ikke ser eksklusive ut. De ser ut som dass rett og slett og det gjør dem jo ganske eksklusive. Man må være litt nerd for å kjøpe det der! Men de låter himmelsk!
