Sennheiser HD650 Impressions Thread - Page 994

post #14896 of 28499

I totally agree with Jamie.  The speedball is a nice add-on, but the stock crack is excellent in its own right, and particularly well matched with hd650's to my ears.  From the outset, I far preferred my stock crack to my prior woo 3 (which aint a bad amp!), even with a pair of very pricey amperex pq 7308's driving the woo.  Adding the speedball, film caps, fancy pot, etc. are all fun potential tweaks to consider in the future, but I am definitely a proponent of enjoying and living with the stock build for a little while at least.

If you want to truly appreciate the sound quality of the 650, or any good hp, try taking a week or two off from listening to them. Put them on and be prepared to be stunned at just how good they are.

I rotate my headphones for this exact reason.....

Quoted For Truth.

 

I'd like to add: Once you have a nice headphone setup and feel the urge to spend more on something "better", invite a friend or relative who isn't an audiophile to have a listen to their favorite music through your rig. Their response usually brings you back to reality (how good it is already) and that can help put your wallet away. :-)

I decided to buy both and end my search. Both are great all arounders. 600's when I need more space and treble for classical and instrumental pieces. 650's for just about everything else. Schiit stack is running both.

Thought the soundstage of the 650 is larger than the 600 and the treble is supposedly better as well. I love the 650, especially playing coldplay, but would definitely like more speed and less "laidbackness" for electronic music. I am however satisfied with my 650 enough that I don't think I need another headphone until I can afford the 800. Maybe also get a BH crack from my Vali.

^^ Yes if you don’t listen to classical music and have a good amp, the HD650 is a better choose, IMO.

Though similar, they both do one thing better than the other.

Hi there, I got the 650 on black Friday and I´ve been using them with the Dragonfly from Audioquest, I really like the sound coming from the HD650 I also know that I can get more if I feed them with something better, hence my questions: Has anyone the HD650 and the Yulong D100 MKII Amp/DAC Combo?? How are they together?? What can I expect (sound-wise)? I like the idea of getting the Yulong due to the ability of driving high impedance and low impedance cans (I want to get them like an all-rounder)

Thanks in advance

Agree

post #14909 of 28499

I agree as well. I rotate between the DT 990 Pros, ATH-M50's, and the HD650's. Every time I listen to them the more I appreciate them.

I've heard at least a dozen amps with the 650's including the Yulong. If you want to keep the 650 long term, and I suggest that you do, there is one amp that will bring them to sound their most exquisite IMO. It's the BHC...look no further.
