^^ Yes, it would be a close call between the hd600 and he500. They both do well with that genre. The he500 will be better with treble extension, attach and decay of notes. But it will cost more, weight more and need a more serious amp to sound it's best. Also the sound stage is a bit better than the hd600. 

 

The hd600 will have a nice balance, have a "smoother" presentation, cost less and is much more comfortable.

Nice Avatar Matt!  I am listening to it now with the 650's!

Hey, just wondering what the best way to care for the pads would be. Are they washable? If so, how often would you all suggest washing them? 

 

thanks...

I've read you can just take them off, wash them in cold water, and they'll be almost as good as new. I'd probably do it once a year if it were me.

^^^ I give them (all my headphones) a very through wipe down with microfiber cloths after every use, still look/feel like new and no need to remove the pads and really wash them. I learned my lesson from not following this on my M50s a few years back and the pads started flaking and cracking after a few months.

So it's okay to wash the pads once a year?

It seems like a lot of people have done it without any damage being done to them. There are a few threads on this:

I wash the pads all the time. 

post #10675 of 23857

^^ thanks guys. I'm about six months into my pads, so I'll wait a few months still and then give them a gentle wash.

I just keep picturing throwing the pads into the washing machine. Not sure they'd survive that... lol dt880smile.png

They will, I've done it before. Thrown them in with a load of laundry, let them air dry, and they're good as new.

Anyone else feel the 650s are uncomfortable? They pinch my jaw really bad. Well at least compared to the AKG 702

post #10680 of 23857
They're actually the most comfortable cans I've owned, along with the HD580. Try carefully bending the metal arms of the headband (NEVER the plastic part! It WILL break!) to reduce the clamping force. Also if yours are brand new, give the ear pads some time to break in, as they're a little stiff at first.
