I am prepared for patience. At my age, patience comes easy. :wink:

Guys! I am into maybe 80 hours of burn-in on my HD650s and a remarkable increase in quality has happened. Am I imagining this? We're talking timbre and immediacy rather than soundstage... Gosh, these cans are beautiful. Why did I have to be 60 years old before these beauties arrived on my head? All right. That's a bit gushy. But it's true. IMHO.

I've sold D2000, DT880 (250 ohm version), Grado RS 225, as they were not getting nearly enough use to keep them. Of course I kept my HD650 though. I still miss the other headphones for time to time for specific uses but in my opinion none of them do what the 650s do - they are great all rounders that make music enjoyable to listen to.

cant believe i just snagged an old DT770 /600 ohms beyer for 100bucks..?!

and put a pair of alpha LAMBpads on it. 

omggg the sound out of this can is scintillating; this combo is crazy good.. i love it for classicals.

i am gushhing too i know...hehe

 

I felt this Dt770.600 is one of those milestone headfones in headfi too..

just like the hd650

Or u can earmark this can for your 65th birthday :P

So I've notice on my Little Dot MK III that I listen at 10 o'clock or louder now. Compared to around 9 o'clock with my HD580s. It's not really a volume issue, I can just hear a lot more detail now and the MK III doesn't really bring that out well at the lower volume. Not sure if this is a short coming of the MK III being an entry tube amp or what?

I'd love to get a Woo WA6-SE but I don't know that I want to save up that long to buy one. So, I'm considering Schiit Lyr too. (Those are the main two because I'll probably end up with an Audeze one of these days too.)
post #14378 of 19501

the 650's have 300Ohm and it also depends on your gain settings of the tube amp.So i have set my gain on middle and also have to go 10 O´clock for satisfying amplification.I´ve also sent you a PM considering the Lyr vs.MKIII because this would be to fftopic as this thread is an appreciation thread:)

I agree with burn-in.  I hated mine at first but now she sings like no other... :wink_face:

Should I expect any deals heading into Black Friday?

post #14382 of 19501
Not likely on sennheiser.
post #14383 of 19501

Just bought today the HD650s! Very happy with them and I find that the FiiO E10 powers them adequately. Also, if Sennheiser indicated that they should be used right out of a headphone exit on a standalone CD Player (for instance), I don't think that kind of device puts more that 150mW  @ 32 Ohms.

Very happy indeed!

Looks like Head Amp might have some deals on the HD650 for Black Friday by this thread/post.

Razordogaudio.com has $100 off headphones that cost over $399. That's where I bought mine.
