Hd800 or room treatment

I am tempted to sell my sennheiser hd800 in favour of getting more room treatment. I am using the rme ucx headphone amp but before shelling out more money for a better amp, I feel I should abandon this pathway and get some more treatment and use my monitors more. Any thoughts?

Keep the phones and go the DIY route for treatment after spending quite a bit of time on the acoustics forums. I'm guessing you'll miss the 800s if you sell them.

Monitors are for mixing and headphones are for checking mixes, so yes! Tune your room, as a tuned room is one of the most important things to have. without a tuned room, you will not hear the true sounds of your music. You can never get a mix to translate its optimal best, if you cannot hear the true sound of the music. It only makes sense to treat and tune your room before doing anything else.

You can get amazing results with minimal investment if you DIY. I spent around 130 bucks (excluding tools) for 6 4x2 foot finished panels. The difference in my room is astounding. If I could get that much reward for investment with everything, I would spend that money over and over...

Gik makes some great priced room solutions. As for the hd800 I would not sell mine. Those are the only headphones I feel I can get a good mix in
