Thanks for this post!   I own HD-600 and like it more than HD-650. This bundle is basically buy the HD-600 and get the other 2 headphones for free + free shipping with Amazon Prime. Amazon was out of stock, earlier, but back in stock now. I just ordered. I'm planning on trying them for gaming by adding an Antlion ModMic 4.0 uni-directional mic.  
Re-cable them, dual entry...can be balanced or unbalanced...and make the cables detachable. Search this thread, and others, for "How to." There are guys that offer this service who post in this thread and the the Wow T50RP thread. PETEREK (formerly cCasper TFG) does beautiful re-cabling and custom painting.
The only way to know for certain whether or not the diaphragm is warped is to separate the two halves of the driver frame in order to lift out the diaphragm. It's tricky and not without risk. I linked a video in Post 1 of this thread showing how to do it. This should be considered the last resort for a problem you can't live with. Good luck which ever way you go!
Measurement Kits   For anyone interested in measuring their headphone FR, distortion, CSD, etc, I have available 3 measurement kits I built, tested, and never used. They are the "Frans (solderdude) Improved Phantom Power Supply" (Dual Stereo version but works in Mono mode) installed inside Altoid tins. They are described at the top of Post 1 in this thread. I'll include a genuine "unobtainium" Panasonic WM-61A microphone with Etymotic IEM triflange tip and soldered 3.5...
This is a PITA, for sure. Let me know.
iAmBMF   Sennheiser HD-800   I've bought several items on massdrop including Shure 846 and AKG K7xx. Great products, Great sound quality, and Great service.
maul, If you (or anyone) need to replace a faulty diaphragm, I have a spare. As nick n mentioned, once in a while there is warped diaphragm that gets past Fostex QC and  hits the magnets, causing a bass rattle or hum. This problem may be addressed in FIMM...I don't remember for sure. As long as the dust cover on the ear side and the white "paper" on the rear side of the driver are intact, you don't need to worry about debris inside the driver. ~ BMF
Congrats to Mikko and thanks to Dr. Alex for the contest. I look forward to hearing "Liquid Spark!"   I just received my Liquid Carbon and I am impressed! Truly an excellent amp for an unbelievably low price.
Thanks, Dr. Alex, for this fun "name the amp" contest.   Best wishes to all.   ~ BMF
