Everything sounds good with these, even though they are quite neutral and don't add any noticeable coloration across different types of recordings.

You hear what's there, nothing less, nothing more.

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"

Really sorry for the confusion 

 

I meant to say "neutral" sound signature and from my research the HD 650'S would be the best for what I want in my price range

If you have a chance, it is good to have them auditioned first (HD 650, K701, and T1) , for me I'm very pleased with HD 650 ;)

Maybe it would be Sennheiser HD 1000 sound sig, I'll definitely upgrade if there is one like that :o2smile:

Have anyone here paired HD 650 with Sennheiser HDVD 800 / HDVA 600 headphone amp? How's the result?

post #14574 of 19136
I'm currently running the 800s and 650s balanced with the HDVD800 and It sounds superb . I have no desire to upgrade anything now . Previous amps that didn't satisfy me include burson ha160ds, fiio eko9 and v200. I have kept the O2 because I think it's an amazing little amp. The HDVD800 has the clean , accurate , detailed sound of the O2 with a slight bit of extra bass weight due to the higher output impedance, in my opinion it also adds a slight bit of presence in the mids which is more noticeable using the 800s. I think of the O2 as a very versatile reference amp that can run almost any headphone very well but the HDVD800 is designed with the 300ohm senns in mind and the result is perfect. It also looks amazing and it has an optical input that I use with my ps4 which the O2 couldn't do .

I've bought and sold about everything over the past five years. All the hifiman hp's...he4, 400, 500. Also lcd2, maddog, alpha dog just to name a few. There remains only one hp among the dozens upon dozens that I simply can not bring myself to sell. 

 

:wink:

You're definitely cured :regular_smile :

post #14577 of 19136

So I have owned the HD650 for a few days now.  Currently have about 20 Hours of Burn in.  Just running through my FiiO E07K.

 

I must say these are very impressive.  Amazing how little fatigue they have.  I can listen to them for hours in total comfort.

Kind of ironic that's also the one you were apprehensive about getting for a long time.............If my failing memory serves me right smily_headphones1.gif

Yes, hd 650 plus odac is a good fit for that kind of music.

Your memory is exactly right. My reservation came from reports/impressions from members here saying that the 650 was too veiled and had no sub bass. Just goes to show that we all hear differently.
