So far ebay seems to have a few of them under $50, but I'm just wondering if anyone here have any experience with any good and reliable sellers out there.

I just purchased a stock 650 cable from Sennheiser Canada and it was just under 30 dollars shipped.

Seems like maybe someone here who knows Tuco1965 could save him money? Meet him at the border? :)  Is that legal?

I got mine for around $15 plus shipping from Sennheiser back in the day. (Bought the HD650 cable for my HD580. Definitely recommend it at that price for the HD580 or HD600.)

Ok... let's stay on topic ppl. Wrong thread to be bashing on balanced or arguing for it. Simply put... many here can simply express how nice HD650s perform on balanced setups... or amps/DACs that happen to be balanced. If you haven't tried them yourself... please do refrain from making such firm judgements and opinions. If you've tried them yourself, fine feel free to disagree... but please leave it as a personal impression or appreciation rather than sound science discussion. That is for another thread.

 

Cheers fellow HD 650 lovers! :beerchug:

I see what you did there...

I know that it's been stated before but probably needs updating. Where is the best, least expensive place for new pads?

Not sure if cheapest, but I bought mine recently for $42.80 at B&H Photo.

Yeah, I found them there also. After shipping you're right at $50. Seems like it's a little high but better than the other prices I've found.

Anyone know a good place to get an affordable 1m cable for my lovelies?

post #14247 of 19492
I find I can drive my 650s just fine out of the little old 10mW at 32 ohms analogue headphone output of my XA1-ES.
post #14248 of 19492

Finally, I got a chance to listen to some music by my HD650 that was driven by “Gungnir > Mjolnir > pure silver balanced cable”.  I found 20% improvement in SQ over my current rigs (Uberfrost > Lyr > stock cable).

Its all in your "subjective" head, it would sound exactly the same with regular copper cables plugged into a Magni/Modi :tongue:

post #14250 of 19492

...that was a joke.  But yes that makes sense to me as the HE-400 are 35ohm cans so the Magni is better able to drive them vs the 300ohm HD650's.
