Same here, waiting to get a tube amp. Probably the Schiit Valhala after getting an Uberfrost

The vocals are  just so mellow, warm, clear..feeding off my darkvoice336se with a pair of TungSols..

.the can so comfy it disappeared the last 2 hours...had to come to this thread to remind myself the hd650 is on my head.

Good nite.

I am just shy of 2 years with the HD 650. And i can say with confidence it would take some really super sounding headphones to make me want to change.:gs1000smile:

When I search “headphones” in image search of Google, the first picture usually is the HD650.

Finally got the balanced cable for my 650's so I could get them up and running on my Mjolnir. Now let me say that I try very hard not to be hyperbolic when I comment here so I am going to try very hard to temper my enthusiasm. I am not very good at articulating what I am hearing so I am not got to try and review anything here. That being said, to say I am impressed with how well the 650's scale would be an understatement.

Don't know if it is the balanced aspect or the power from this beast, but honestly this is a different set of HP's!

Lol. That's a bit much. But yes, going balanced yields good results from the HD650. Particularly in the width of soundstage and overall coherence. A balanced dac should also improve your system. The s/e input into the MJ isn't as good IMO.

One step at a time. This is most likely an end game amp for me, I have too many other hobbies to invest much more into an amp. I will however be adding the Gungnir to the system within the next 3-6 months.

 I agree. When I had it, before I sold it, I was using it SE with the ODAC; and I wasn't blown away.

Bought the 650's today, been only using gaming headphones and a Sennheiser 598 for 2 hours before settling on this headset. Man what a work of art these headphones are.

Welcome to the 650 club = D.  What's your current setup with it?
