  I was going to say the T5p, instead of the T1, but its good to know I'm in the general region of someone else.  The T1's soundstage makes it too far away from the DT1350 for my ears.  I love my DT1350, but that is one area where it lacks....
 I agree with HemiSam.  The HD650's smoothness lends itself well to "questionable" recordings. The Z7 extends further in treble and bass, and has a better bass kick.  But it is a bit choppy through the frequency ranges.  And it might be my worse headphone with bad recordings.  It obviously isolates where the HD650 does not, but that doesn't stop it from having lovely soundstage.  I would consider the HD650 warmer, but not by much. If you were searching for a headphone that...

 Are those reissues?  And where did you get them?  Nice to rock old school sometimes....
 I encourage you to audition the HD800s again, with a proper tube setup...
I listen to the Z7 out of the M8, but single ended only so far.  I don't have a 4 pin XLR cable for mine yet.  It drives the the Z7 great in single ended...
