Just got the HD 650 today in the mail used. These are like brand new. Running them from the DACMAGIC and the Purity KICAS (Non Caliente) all I can say is they are different than the HD 600 that I also own. I will change out the cable to lighten them up a bit but so far these are amazing. Listening to Diana Krall and the bass player is fantastic. I do not hear it that well with the HD 600. I will say the HD 600 has a more transparent sound with brighter highs but I think I will grow accustomed to the sound of the HD 650 quite nicely. I kept the 600's until the 650's got here so I could listen to both to decide which one I wanted to live with. Surprise, I guess I will sell the HD 600's as I do not think they will get much play time. Anyone wanting a good SS Amp with the HD 650 I would recommend the KICAS without reservation. Amazing sound and plenty of power to drive these phones. I am presently only at 12:00 and between 1 and 2 oclock they are pretty loud and solid. Just my opinion. Anyone recommend a good cable to go with these.
