I've had mine for about 7 months and it has been paired with what is my current setup for about 5 months. I'm still amazed by them every time I put them on. I'm confident this is about as good as it gets in this price range. There might be a slightly better setup out there for the money, but it would likely take a bit of time, energy, and money to find it (and like I said, even then it would likely only be slightly better). The sick thing is not only is it one of the best sounding setups in this price range but it competes well with more expensive setups (think LCD2/Lyr/Bifrost). You really have to drop a ton of money in my opinion before you start blowing the HD650's out of the water.
