I'm getting a HiFi-M8, not the magni/modi combo.  That is a cool little combo.  I've heard it and liked it, just not with the HD650s....

Will definitely think about getting Asgard 2, do I need a DAC to go with it or does it come with cable that it can be used with computer through audiocard? (Seems to be 2 RCA inputs)

You could just use a RCA to 3.5 mm cable. My sound card just so happens to have RCA out. You don't need a DAC to start out with, honestly, because you have a decent sound card, but the Asgard 2 pretty much "releases the kraken".

I find it enjoyable on every genre. The neutrality on the HD 600 made certain music a little lifeless to me....but everyone has different tastes. I personally think the edge the HD 650 have over the 600 is their bass response. Better extension, and a satisfyingly better punch.

Hey thanks for responding. How do you think it is for classical. Everyone seems to be recommending the hd 600 for classical, but I'm sensitive to highs which might be a problem. What do you think?

I never heard HD600 but I'm enjoying classical with HD650

I'm the last one to be able to say anything for classical.  I don't listen to it...or if I do, it's because of a small, custom score for a game or movies redface.gif.

 

I obviously tend to lean towards a warmer pair of headphones, and the HD 600 did get seemingly fatiguing to me at times.  Mids and highs aren't harsh by any means, but the HD 650s just show you what the true definition of smooth really is.

I do prefer the HD600 some classical, especially strings. I prefer the HD650 for grand symphonies. I just don't dig how weighty the bass is on the HD650 w/ some strings. I actually prefer the HD650 for all genres; if I have the HD650 at the office (where I do most of my listening), I listen to a lot more of everything. When I have the HD600, I realize how much of a classical nut I am.

HD650 is great for classical.

I'd agree. 

 

But I would say that there are times, like listening to a cello solo, that the HD600 nails it while the HD650 overdoes it. IMO.

Yeah I'm pretty conflicted on the issue. I think one of the deciding factor for me is comfort. I heard from some people that the hd 600 was more comfortable than the hd 650. Is this true???

I wouldn't say hd600 is more comfortable. They have the same ear pads and the headband is almost the same as on hd650.

Why are you asking this again? We already answered your question, twice, on the previous page.

 

The build of the HD650 and HD600 are identical, therefore comfort is exactly the same on both. Whoever told you otherwise is wrong.
