    Every time I listen to the M1 HPA and compare it to other amps in audio stores I get the same feeling you have with the HD650. To my ears it's a very diffuse and foggy sounding amp and the combination with the perhaps HD650 doesn't help. 
The number I have seen being thrown around is 0.001-0.1 dB for cables but I haven't seen any data to back this up.
Pretty brilliant if you ask me. I admire people who can express them self in that poetic circle around the topic way and still manage to be very much on point and get the criticism through.
I have found the right place... If I hear Diana Krall on one more hifi setup I will go Michael Douglas in Falling Down! This type of boring audiophile elevator music is the antitheses of what music is about. Music is the suppose to convey emotions. This sleepy jazz nonsense on the other hand to me just convey that feeling of nothing or sometimes when you have after you've eaten too much of good food and wished you had stopped 10 minutes earlier, before you where too...
  Common now. How much does a cable do for the frequency response when measuring a headphones? Perhaps 0.2 dB tops. Not saying there can't be an audible difference but when measuring the difference is minimal. I'm open for someone to prove me wrong though and show me me data to the contrary.
  Graphs and real life listening experience are two different domains in my experience. You need other types of measurements also. I have listened to headphones that by the graph should be bass heavy/light or harsher in the treble that in reality where neither.
I have a FXZ100 I'm selling.
These really do sound terrific if you can handle that extra bass, but boy do they suck when it comes to fit and cable. The stock tips literally suck, creating a very unpleasant vacuum effecting. Probably could be a dangerous thing for the ear drums. The RE-262 had the same problem.   With some foam tips they wont have the sucking effecting as well as sounding much better. Only problem is the tips don't fit the earphones exactly which means the tips have a tendency...
    If you want a very natural sounding DAC look at the Hegel HD20. Too many DACs I've heard go for maximum detail retrieval but tend to sound slightly digital and unnatural IMO.
I would buy a V Moda cable with a 45 degree connector for sure. They have one button remote Android cable, iPhone 3 button remote cable and audio only cables: http://v-moda.com/cables/
