Checking in. Just got mine today, running them off the E7/E9 combo, coming off the 598s. Listening to Aja and Random Access Memories, there's just a lushness to the mids that the 598s can't reproduce. The soundstage isn't quite as spacious or airy but it feels more cohesive. Looking forward to picking up the Lyr in a month or two. Is that still the primo combo for these babies?

Lyr or Bottlehead Crack + Speedball.

I just paired my HD 650 with SAA equinox cables...one word - WOW beyersmile.png - is it placebo?  I dunno, when I listened with stock cable, I was like mmmm, good....now it's WOW!.. if it is placebo, it's working and I like the length(6ft) and way the cable feels and flexes too. Stock was too long and stiff, bleh!

 

Note - I'm only running on a Ipod Touch 3G with E17 - 320k files

What was the price of the cable?

post #13178 of 27694

Just wondering, does the music come from the headphones or do they 

disappear?

What does that mean?

post #13180 of 27694

They're 'open back' if that helps? They don't isolate much sound, one way or the other.

 

Perhaps I've misinterpreted, though.

post #13181 of 27694

Well I have a two channel speaker system and the sound does not seem 

to come from the speakers. They disappear. I have a pair of Grado SR80's 

and a pair of modded Fostex t50rp's and the sound clearly comes from the 

headphones. I am looking for headphones that don't get in the way of the music.

I know that my headphones a entry level at best, and I am looking to upgrade. 

I have been looking to find out all I can about the HD650's and the 600's. Short 

of buying them I have to ask questions. Hope this explains my question.

Thanks

Ah, your original question does make perfect sense in that context!

 

It's a tough question to answer, especially as I rather enjoy the 'directness' that comes from cans and indeed IEMs. I enjoy being placed 'near the front row', as it were.

 

I will say, though, that the 650s are a bit more 'direct' than, say, the 598s which seemed to have a bit more air to the soundstage. I think perhaps the most important element for losing oneself in the musical space is comfort and the 650s have a slightly tighter clamp than the 598s which are virtually unnoticeable, to the point of being slightly loose!

 

I guess I'll never be perfectly happy :)

Maybe they are out of phase? That can cause a difficulty of pinpointing sounds.

post #13185 of 27694

Perhaps I did not communicate properly, my two channel system is working fine, I don't want to hear 

one dimensional music. That is what you get when the sound is coming out of the speaker and you can pinpoint the sound at the speaker. When the sound is properly mixed from both channels a sound stage is achieved. My experience while very limited is that the sound from my headphone system is one dimensional, so I am looking for a solution. 

thanks
