Oh, how I envy you.  I merely have the CD...

 

What a coincidence two HD650 lovers pick the same album, at the same time?

+1

I heard her last album live and it great work

Yes she was performing in NYC right before the Sandy and I found out about it by an accident by reading free daily paper at 7am so straight after work i went to box office hopping to get ticket and had no problem

Wow...eek.gif Can I get a few details? Big or small venue? How cool would it be to here her live and then go home and see how it sounds in comparison? 

post #12758 of 19438

I think she translates very well live.  At least based on the videos of her I've seen...

 

BTW, Radio Music Society didn't quite scratch the itch.  So, now its onto Chamber Music Society.....

If you like the kind of music she does Tori Amos The Beekeeper is really great sounding on the 650s

I should've mentioned that. Stuff like Grizzly Bear or Vampire Weekend, Alt. rock with the vocals put forward.

It was well known venue in Harlem perfectly suitable for jazz performances. Listening right now 24bit/96kHz FLAC right now and it sounds if she performs live for me right at my apartment. I also heard Diana Krall live and her latest albums sounds great on HD650/WA7 combo too.

I also heard Ottmar Liebert live fourth time in a row and than heard some tracks two days later using same combo and finally I heard electric bass guitar his partner plays sounding exactly as I heard it live. The guitar was there when I heard those track before but it didn't sound so precise as live before

Yeah I know, I'm a little leery myself but they seem to be genuine leather & the feedback record of the seller is 100%.  I don't know, I've searched, in vain, on several sites & googled for he90/60 replacement pads & they're nowhere to be found & supposing I found some they would most likely cost an enormous amount of money & would they even fit the HD6xx ?  On the other hand these are available & are made for the HD6xx & the price appears to be moderate also. I've just wondered now for a while what the HD650s would look/sound (?) like with leather ear pads similar to the he60/90s.  I'm going to think about it. cool.gif
