Sennheiser HD650 Impressions Thread - Page 944

post #14146 of 23892

Has anyone here used the HD650 with the Yulong D100 MKII? What are your impressions of that combination?  I read that the D100 puts out 130mw into 300 ohm.  I've seen some people say that its underpowered for the HD650, while others said it has more than enough power.  Was hoping to get some first hand impressions from my fellow HD650 threaders.

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?
