I think I am leaning towards the Vali.  Not much info on it, just a lot of hype, but that can also be part of the fun and excitement - trying out something that not many people have yet.

 

I will be anxious to hear what you will have to say about them, as you are in a position to directly compare the two amps using the HD650s.

That's as good a reason as any--especially since the HD650 sounds great on any Schiit.  I have the Mjolnir and had the Lyr until a week ago--both sound fantastic with the HD650. I haven't heard them, but head-fiers also love the Asgard 2 and Valhalla with the HD650.

Man, that wire was frickin' thin, like a very fine human hair. Of course, there was no easy solder point for the driver, the wire goes directly to the voice coil.  Grafted in a single strand of copper, I could hardly see what I was doing, even with a magnifier.  And no, I do not offer this service--take care of your drivers! :beerchug:

Thank you very much, good sir! I'm not even going to touch that side of the driver anymore. I really shouldn't have in the first place.

I also heard about that issue before ordering mine. I have had mine since September so they are probably recent production. So far no problems with paint chipping at all. I listen to them about 4-6 hours per day, and I frequently check the headband for any paint chipping, but so far none at all.

I just got my HD650's back in September from Crutchfield [Authorized Sennheiser dealer] ( http://www.crutchfield.com/p_143HD650/Sennheiser-HD-650.html) they are Titanium finish as well. I didn't realize there were other colors for the HD650's! I know the HD600's have that marble-like finish. What other colors do the HD650's come in? Aren't they all Titanium finish or is that perhaps just the recent production ones?

^^ I've had mine since last year, no paint chipping issues so far.

post #14512 of 36844
They're all titanium. HD580 was a grey blue, HD600 was that marble colour, and HD650 is titanium.

accidentally sat on my hd650...confirm it is made of titanium :P

Fingers crossed a Black Friday deal hits on these cans.

 

LOL I've been waiting to own them since 2006.

Not to make you feel bad, but you missed an amazing deal just a couple days ago.  I got a new pair from Sennheiser for $291.

To get back to the subject of the HD650's Titanium finish, I was wondering if it is difficult to remove the grills covering the outside of the drivers on the outside of the headphones. I think the black grills look good, but I think it would be awesome to paint them with a Silver-metallic finish or Titanium Metallic finish. Would this be possible or does the process of removing the grills too difficult to remove and replace properly?

Yes, it's possible. In fact, I have my grill disconnected because Barry S fixed one of my drivers so I can't use the headphones right now. You just need some kind of flat-head screwdriver on the part where the cables attach. Just push outward. There are videos on YouTube if you're skeptical on how to do this.

Thank you very much for that info! What do you guys think of painting the grills a metallic Silver or metallic Titanium finish or any color that one would like? DO you guys think it would look cool?
