Great pair of cans

Posted

Pros: Nice bass response, smoothies high, nice mids

Cons: Kinda feel uncomfy after 2 hour session..

Setup for review 1. Dacport lx 2. Scsag m2m 3. JD's O2 Review When i put them on for the first time i could really tell that this HP has some nice comfort on it, even though the earpad kinda hard at first.. I start to feel fatigue after 2 hour of listening session, this fatigue feeling is very hard on my left ear, but after 1 weeks of use, this feeling is gradually reduce As for the sound itself I don't feel any veiled things like many people said, the vocal is really clear and quiet laidback, allowing each instrument to produce their sound independently. The next great thing that i feel is the bass that have a nice "grand" feeling, it's feel very differently from my previous HP which...

Awesome Headphones!

Posted

Pros: Excellent sound quality, great bass.

I am no audiophile but I can say that these headphones are the best I have heard while I spent a grueling couple of weeks looking for a good pair of headphones.  I started off with Dre Beats but felt like I squandered my money so I returned them and started looking for a real pair of headphones.

Mid-priced Perfection!

Posted

Pros: Great sound, great comfort, changeable cables

Cons: Must be amped to perform. Much better with aftermarket cable

Bought these second hand from a fellow Head-Fi'er (thanks, Gavin!!)   These are easily some of the best value headphones on the market. Their sound quality and scalability (i.e. improvements gained through better cables, amps, etc.) is brilliant for the price.   I've tried them with all different genres of music and it doesn't matter what I throw at it - everything is effortless, smooth and creamy, but with incredible detail and imaging. The only negative might be a lack of thump with Hip-Hop/RnB. They have the bass, but not the boom.

Pros: neutral, excellent sounding, nice soundstage

Cons: need a powerful amplifier

Superb headphone, that has excellent detail, amazing soundstage, very nice highs, mids, and a very tight and detailed bass....but to get quality like this, I'm using a blue dragon v3 headphone cable, little dot mk3 tube amp, and playing CDs though them....but even with a modest setup, you will still greatly appreciate the sound that these headphones can put out! Give the hd650's about 100 hours of break-in time, and you will truly hear what they can offer....all in all, STILL one of the best headphones out there....buy a pair, and enjoy! today I started using my hd650 headphones with a full sized CD player, with built I'm dac, and other very high end parts...NOW I'M REALLY IN AUDIO...

Sennheiser HD 650 Headphones

Posted

Cons: the headband is a bit stiff and puts pressure on the ears

I had several of those (balanced and unbalanced) and I liked them alot. I can't remember if they had the newer "silver" drivers. I compared them with the HD600 and they sounded better.
