I bought them used. Judging from the flaking paint on the headband angry_face.gif, they're likely burned in.

They are at least 4 years old then and well used.

It's probably prohibitively expensive, and probably not worth it, but does Sennheiser sell replacement headbands (just the plastic part)? Couldn't find it in their parts store. I may give them a call.

 

Edit: They are the silver screen version too.

Yea they do but they are over $100 (i think $120 was the price last time i checked).

120 bucks is not worth it. You can get a pair of nice used headphones for that much money. Sennheiser have ridiculously high prices on their spare parts.

That's what I thought. I'll just deal with the current flaky one, haha biggrin.gif

 

And yeah, what's up with their prices? $60 for velour earpads seems a little ridiculous, considering the Beyers are under $30... rolleyes.gif

 

Edit: See my signature. I think that confirms I made the right choice smily_headphones1.gif

You can also paint it with a nice color of choice

This. Gray touch up paint will fix it.

 

And invest in a nice headphone stand, and you won't have to worry about it happening again in the future and/or chipping off more paint.

My hd650 looks brand new and is about six months old...I think. I hang it on a stand when not in use. I think that a lot of the chipping and flaking must come from those who just lay them on a bare desk. They'll inevitably get pushed around and have some damage.

Hi guys! As I already stated, I love my HD 650's! More than my AH-D2000 (which are also very good though)! And I have a question about the two revisions. How do I know which revision I have? What are the sonic differences between the revisions? When did the newer revision started appearing?
Thanks!
post #10632 of 23915

^^ Several years ago. Not sure about the exact date. Someone else will chime in though. 

post #10633 of 23915
I bought mine in October 2008 and I think I have the new version because the "plate" (if I can call it that) in front of the driver is made from some kind of metalish silvery "wires" "glued together" and is far from being even close to black and from what I read that means it's the new version.
Still I would like someone to shed more light on it.

Thanks!
post #10634 of 23915

I believe that the general consensus is that the black drivers are the older revision and the silver screened ones are the current. I think that this is the only differentiation. 

post #10635 of 23915
Yes that's what I've read as well and I'm glad to have the newer version but I always wondered if it really is the newer one because they're from 2008 and that's quite a while ago...
BTW Matt, a bit off-topic: seeing you have Chris in your avatar, I have to ask; what do you think about King Animal?
