When did you get them? Better than the uptowns lol? Would getting the HD650's put a stop to the head-fi madness?

1. hd650-with a good amp these are a talented performer. With a great amp, they are just down right talented. Uber comfortable. Exceptional fit and finish if you're okay with plenty of plastic. Incredibly musical with most material. You could buy these and a good amp and call it end game...well, I know that I could. 

 

Weakness-still looking wink.gif

 

2. Maddogs-I think somewhat of a darkhorse around here. Earning a reputation for a deliciously smooth orthodynamic sound. The signature is cohesive across the spectrum with a touch of warmth around the bottom end. Fantastic isolation and has a rugged tank like build. Scales about as well as the hd650. 

 

Weakness-some may consider the slight darkness a con...I don't. 

 

3. he400-despite taking some deserved heat for production issues, this is a beautiful headphone. The second best bass that I've ever heard. Only second to the lcd2r2. This is not flabby exaggerated or boomy bass. It is rich with texture and impact. Great with Jazz, Pop and anything with a nice bass-line. Very good sound stage and a good all rounder. 

 

Weakness-heaviest and least comfortable of the three.

The Maddogs are darker than the HD650?

^^ Yes. With the dogpads the maddogs are darker than the 650. The 650's, at least the newest version, is not as dark as what people say they are.

Yea, I had an HD650 a little over a year ago. It wasn't terribly dark, but it wasn't as revealing as my current Q701.

Easy, easy. You got a real beast with the 650. Just hang on to it and enjoy.

I'll tell it just like everyone else tells it. The Q701 is less warm and less bassy, and more treble happy. Overall it's more analytical and detailed. The HD650 is a great headphone, I just prefer the sound of the Q701. Plus, i can always EQ in a little more warmth and bass if I want it.

Don't get the 650 my friend.  It will ruin everything.  No more buying headphones all the time... what would you do?  My life is now over... :)

 

Seriously though.  With the right amp these things far surpass any ideas I previously had about them.  Very much worth their price tag IMO.

That's what I am worried about also. I don't know if I can live without this "cheap-phones-buying-addiction" lol.

And the right amp seems to be the Lyr, so there's another $400 eek.gif   Maybe I will instead just stay addicted and continue going broke nice and slowly. Somics... here I come lol!
