ROFL on the video.
Anybody else think, that given the numerous amount of people who have the "I purchased a Sennheiser HD-650/600, but I sold it because of the veil, but then when I purchased it again, the veil was gone" experience, that the Sennheiser "veil" is just a mental thing?
This isn't to put down anybody who has such experiences, to imply anything about their mental state... But, it seems to me, that the "veil" people say they hear is mostly a relative thing.
Because for me, personally, I know I've had some "oh wow, this HD-650 DOES have a veil" moments... but this was right after I switched to the HD-650 from another headphone.
But when I pick up the HD-650 without having listened to any headphones right before, the "veil" seems gone.
It seems it's more an issue where people get used to one pair of headphones, and then when they switch over the HD-650, it seems as if, relatively, there is a veil. This seems like a more likely explanation for the "veil", than Sennheiser changing their headphones mid-production. Because, AFAIK, the criticisms of Sennheiser's veil has been around since the HD-580, and the HD-600. So whatever it is that causes people to believe there is such a veil is by actual design (ie. is done on purpose), and not an issue with manufacturing.
That's because the ones with the white screens has no veil..
