Sennheiser HD650 Appreciation Thread!! - Page 1130

post #16936 of 16942

I haven't heard it either (the guy I can buy it from had HD650 paired with it and sings praises about it) but it's got excellent reviews: http://www.canor-audio.com/?p=1491&pid=342 and http://www.hifitest.de/test/zubehoer_hifi/canor-tp10_2285# or http://www.tupperwav.com/tests/amplificateurs-nomade/test-canor-tp10-lampli-royal. It's supposedly one the best headphone amps under 1,000 EURO. But I'm a newbie in these things, so I don't know.

He is right. You just gotta listen.

I'm really close to buying these off of Amazon warehouse for 287$.  I'm trying to resist because I already have the X1 and DT 770/80.  Will my modest E17/E09k combo let the HD650 shine over the DT 770/80?  Must Resist....

I would think that HD650 would replace your X1, not the DT770.

Not that I would know.

I use the X1 with a portable amp(C&C BH2) more than the DT770, which have increased my listening pleasure with the desktop setup.  My skepticism about the power/SQ a desktop amp could provide was all washed away upon first listen.

I'm going to have to get me some soon I think. I have had enough with my Grado RS1. My buddy has a pair of them that I got to try out for a bit. I currently have a Cary cad 300sei with a sweet headphone amp that I love. The Grados just seem airy to me  over all. Acoustic music... front row center, but over all does not have the same weight and body like the 650 have. Oh did I mention how smooth they sound too. Such a great buy. Making my purchase soon.
