Grados are completly modded from top to bottom, some even change the drivers, the earpads, the band, even the cups. Same goes for the Denon, the cup are modifier, the drivers damped. The Audeze earpards are just glued on, and that must be the most modifier cable headphone on the planet because it's so expensive, people cannot get over the plain looking factory cable.

People even repaint their HD800, which is awesome looking by the way.

 

 

Meanwhile the HD650 is so good, people don't mod it. Maybe one has tried to remove this foam and that, but stock sounds better.

Stock eapads are the best, and so durable. Headband is comfortable and classy.

Yeah the finish is kind of 'unique' nor cheap looking or especially top of the line, but it holds up really well to drops and knocks.

The HD650 is just good, and well thought out. Otherwise there would be way more mods for it like there is for every other popular headphones.

The demo beats in my local store have the PU flaking off the pleather ear pads - that's not cheaply made, much.
My "Cheaply made" HD650s are, after 3 years, physically as good as new (sonically, better).

 

The headband of my hd650 started to flake after 2 years.

The headband, not the earpads nor the clothy part under the plastic part of the headband. The headband does have a tendency to flake after a while. I suspect mine is due to my large noggin.

He means the paint in the head band. Mine flaked as well after a couple of years.

Loving my 650s and Valhalla (driver foam mod and my own cable also).

Do you guys who have flaking headbands use a headphone stand?

I don't have one yet but i rest my headphones on top of a large piece of packing foam. It was meant to be temporary but i never got around to buying a proper stand.

Mine were purchased used with the paint already flaking off of the headband.

post #11964 of 18435
That sucks. Sennheiser needs to revise that paint.

If I were them, id take the driver housing and attach it to a non plastic headband assembly.

No stand here (keep mine in a case when not in use).

I don't have a stand, and like you, I hadn't gotten around to do so. I remember reading in this thread that those who use headphone stands tend to have less flaking. 

post #11967 of 18435

yea thought so, which is why i keep mine on top of the packing foam because i know of the flaking issue with the HD650. mine thankfully is still in good condition

Is that Django Reinhardt in your avatar? Awesome! beerchug.gif

 

Which reminds me I need to find my copy of his CD to rip (lost my music library due to HDD failure).

post #11969 of 18435

yeap Django is my avatar, been listening to it ever since it featured in the original mafia game, my first real foray into jazz.

I never used a stand. I mostly stored mine in their box.
