The 600 are more neutral sounding and in fact preferable to many over the 650. The downside is they are quite ugly whereas the 650 looks nice. I like both but with serious amplification (balanced) and a high end DAC you can get more out of the 650.
Yep, likely sometime in March. A little birdy told me the SQ is between the LCD2 and LCD3.
Alexnova, The HD650 are anything but cold. They are a very warm headphone and will shine with proper amplification. I've always found Grados to have a thin sound to them, regardless of their lowest or highest end model, but again your ears may vary. The 650 is a very different phone than the 595. The 595 has some nice traits but it can't really compare to the quality of the 650.
The upgrade from the 600 would be the 800. They share similar tonal traits whereas the 650 shares tonal traits with phones like the LCD2.
I personally prefer the HD650 to any Grado I've heard, as I'm just not a fan of the Grado sound. If you are used to the Sennheiser sound chances are you'll have a hard time warming up to them, but I hope for your sake I'm wrong, unless you can return the Grado if you don't like them.
Welcome to Head-Fi and congrats on your new purchase. The 650s are quite a bit better overall than the 595s so I think you'll be happy. Just make sure you have at least some minimal amplification to drive them.
I used to say the exact same thing. Now I have a pair of LCD-3, which are more comfortable than the 2. The weight used to bother me too, until I started wearing the HD800 with the 650 on top of it. Compared to that, the LCD3 are fine!
Hey I like his amp or I wouldn't even say anything. Obviously there are others who would like the other color options, that's all.
Hmm.... And what colors are the iMacs now?
Who said the 600 has a completely flat response? It's just more well-rounded whereas the 650 can sound muddy in comparison. It all depends on your tastes but I think if you asked most senior members here which one sounded more realistic they'd say the 600. A good analogy is the 600 is to the 800 as the 650 is to the LCD2. However the 600 doesn't have some of the treble issues the 800 does, but it's not nearly as accurate either. The best thing is for everyone to...
