Got my pair in, wow these absolutely destroy the HE-400 in everything except for EDM/Trap. Hip hop sounds so much better because of the mids, really anything with male vocals. Unsure whether to sell the HE-400 or to keep them strictly for bassier songs without male vocals (quite specific...)
Ended up getting the HD 650 anyway, might just not sell my HE-400 and use it for more bass heavy music. 
About to pull the trigger on some HD 650's. Coming from the HE-400, what should i expect?   My main problems with the HE-400 were the piercingly sibilant treble and the recessed mids, making me want somewhat of a neutral headphone with a little more bass than completely neutral. I will say i listen to a lot of genres ranging from hip hop to electronic to rock to jazz etc etc. Will be using a schiit m/m stack as well. 
Man this only makes the decision harder lol. I guess it's the question of open vs closed as well as sound signature Though i will say that i was told by Chan that the offer for the $475 teaks ends today and I won't be able to buy anything until wednesday, so i have no idea if i'm even able to buy the teaks 
I remember wanting the hd650 back 4 years ago, when i opted to go for the HE-400 instead. Interesting how things came around really My only worry is I might be setting myself up for disappointment by going from the He-400 to the 650 in terms of bass, as for the most part i really enjoyed the bass of the HE-400, as well as the warmth, which may be weird to say as i said i thought the bass could be too much earlier (i think that might be simply because of the recessed mids...
Definitely was considering those as well. The lowered price is also pretty enticing. Do you know how the pair with a schiit magni/modi stack? Don't plan on upgrading amp/dac anytime soon really Has anyone compared the teaks with either of the senns? I obviously assume they'll be pretty different but I'm just curious
Yeah that is good for me i would say, i don't like headphones with too much of a v shape sound signature like the Fostex offerings are 
Would the teaks be a good recommendation for someone wanting some headphones that are for the most part neutral/balanced with a little bit more bass? I found the HE-400 treble to fatiguing and the mids too recessed, with the bass even being a little too much at times. I also have a pair of Vanatoo Transparent One speakers that are supposedly neutral, and i love those.
Revision 2, so not the one with the treble issues of revision 3 or the driver issues of revision 1
Yeah i was definitely thinking the TH-X00 was too v shaped upon reviews, however the E-MU Teak seemed to be a little bit closer to balanced because of the more forward mids and slightly less sub bass. Still unsure if I would enjoy the signature though. Thanks for the other recommendations, will look into them.I was looking at the PM-3 earlier, definitely something i was interested in, the only thing worrying to me is the apparent "boring"-ness due to some of the treble...
