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

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.

Double post, sorry

Do you have an extra large head. I have a medium sized head and these are the most comfortable hp's I've ever owned. I did stretch out that metal tab that connect the headband to the cup...carefully, when I first got them. Also, as someone else said the pads will compress to your head naturally over the course of several weeks.

I've had my 650's for a little over a month now and I am really enjoying them.

 

I'm currently using a fiio e7/e9 combo to drive these, but I feel like I can get so much more out of them with a new dac/amp.

My question for you guy is, what amp and dac would brighten up the 650's? One thing that I don't really like about my 650's is that it doesn't sound as bright and lively as my hd555's (at least to my ears).

 

I'm currently listening to A LOT of Kelly Clarkson. With my 650, it sounds like I'm listening live, a little more so than my 555, but as I said before, just not as bright and lively.

 

I'm listen to a lot of classical, pop/rock, & TONS of vocals. My budget would be around $500~$600 for both dac and amp, possibly a little more if it would be worth the money.

Sweet Jimeny Cricket ... $#@?!^&*.  Just when I thought I had seen or read it all, this comes along.  Can someone quickly buy a "man card" for this guy?  Please? I mean, I'm pleading with all my heart.  Oh dear gosh.

 

On the other hand, some people might laugh at what I listen to.  That's the fun in this hobby.  We have the headphones, so nobody can really hear what we listen to unless they are awfully close or you're playing the music a bit loud.  In a way, I applaud this guy for being so honest  We should all be so open.  Seriously.

 

On the other hand ...

I'm selling a 10' Stefan AudioArt Equinox cable for the HD-650 in the F/S cable section.  It will fit the HD-580/600 and 650.  It is terminated with a 1/4" Neutrik connector.  New, this cable is a $349 cable.  However, I'm seeking $149 (shipped) via USPS Priority Mail in the United States.

Thank you.  Over and Out.

I can't say that I'm a huge Kelly Clarkeson fan, but hey...the girls got some pipes!! And that first album she released sold more and at a faster rate than anything since the Beatles. I give her props for that. 

 

I listen to a lot of jazz these days, but I'll throw on some cheesey pop every once in a while. redface.gif

Looks like you should have went with the HD600 instead of the 650.
