Only price, second hand is a bargain but I don't think that's a prime concern for you so go with the S. Not aware of any other upside to the OG but I'm a tightwad

The HD800S in black looks way cooler. :cool:

No quite cool enough for me to spend the extra cash over the OG though...

Imo the Sennheiser's sound better than the Clears with or without EQ.

The Clears also feel like you have a pile of cement on the crown of your head. Very heavy.
