Hey everyone I think this is like my second on third post on head-fi so be kind :)
I have learnt a lot more about audio over the past year and a bit and have finally saved up enough money to get the Sennheiser HD 650's
I will be purchasing the "O2+ODAC Combo" playing my FLAC files from my laptop.
I just wanted to make sure that this headphone is the right headphone for me. I have been the lover of a very neutral sound signature for a long time and my favorite artists are; Pink Floyd, Coldplay, Nicolas Jaar, James Blake, The Who, Dire Straits, The Beatles, DARKSIDE to name a few.
Do you believe that the headphones would be good for the music that I listen to?
Thanks very much in advance everyone :)
What do you mean by "very neutral sound signature", have you try AKG K701, cause some people think that HD 650 is very colored against K701, as I have tried AKG K701, Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro 600 ohms versions, and Beyerdynamic T1, I can say in my opinion that the most natural headphone is the T1, and then K701.
I have purchased the K701 but I can't endure wearing it for long time listening session, I can't endure the pain of the bumps, I can't endure the high sound signature of K701 a.k.a "fatiguing", so I sold mine and get the HD 650 and very pleased with it.
But someone out there just happen to be my opposite site, he / she doesn't feel quite pleasant with HD 650 and found the natural sound in AKG K701. You can view my reviews and his here http://www.headphone.com/headphones/sennheiser-hd-650.php , go to tab customer reviews posted by Bloody Gus, a review just below mine, and at the opposite site, look at his review here http://www.headphone.com/headphones/akg-k-701-white.php , go to tab customer reviews posted by Bloody Gus, and my review just 2 review below his.
So make sure you know what you mean by "very neutral sound signature"
