+2  T1 has wider soundstage. HD650 is smoother, a lot smoother

Yeah but Amazon has sales like that all the time, and so do their other sellers...

Detail on T1 is better than HD 650

 

but HD650's Soundstage is wider and really great!

I know your feeling, actually it's not wider, but more airy sounding biggrin.gif

I feel T1 soundstage is not wider than 650, but definitely deeper and airyer.

Yeah, despite what a lot of people say, I find the HD650 can make things pretty darn far away; if they are lacking in anything, it's dynamics, the ability to display the difference between what is simultaneously loud or quiet, to go from soft to powerful quickly. This is what I think people are really talking about when they refer to the Sennheiser "veil;" to my ears, it's more about the sound being laid back than any particular coloration. It's also the primary way I found the HD800 to be better than the HD650: it can go from sounding distant and soft, to intimate and powerful and immediate VERY quickly, especially in the midrange. The HD800 did have more detailed and extended treble, too, but that wasn't the real difference-maker to my ears.

 

It's also one reason I love my DT770 LE as a compliment to my HD650, it has a much tighter, more dynamic sound.

Man, I never realized how badly Adele's "19" album was mastered.  650's made it so easy and enjoyable to listen to.  K712's are my #1's but the 650's saves about any poor recording.

i didn't think it was that bad. especially the live acoustic CD that comes with the expanded edition.

It wasn't horrid, no.  But the 650's were gold with it.

I just joined this site and the HD650 club.  I have been using IEM for awhile now, but want to go back to regular headphones.

post #13556 of 24793

Hello and welcome.  I have to advise, it's not really a club.  More like a meat raffle.

I should look into that version.  I was quite unhappy with the "standard" I purchased...

Anyone know if the sennheiser balanced cable is available for the 650s yet? Any other recommendations for a 4 pin xlr that is available in the uk around the same price it less than that cable (£189). ?

Are you saying that the Sennheiser balanced cable for the HD650 costs 189 pounds? If so, that's crazy. I bought a replacement HD650 cable for $20 shipped and re-terminated with a Neutrik 4 pin XLR.

 No, hes asking if Sennheiser doesn't make one, whats the next best option and his budget is 189 pounds.
