Just checking in to say that after several years of novelty thrill experiences with various IEMs and cans, I am so delighted - in fact, ecstatic - to just enjoy music (and not headphones) again thanks to the HD650s. I still pick out details and impressive reproduction and so on but more in the sense of 'wow, I love this' than 'oh, check that out'. Despite the fact you can break it all down to science and precise measurements, there's a certain magic at play in the presentation. The only gimmick is 'everything sounds fantastic'.
Needless to say, this is through the stock BHC. I'll Speedball it one day but at the moment, and for the first period of time in several years, I want for nothing. I've even got over my HE500 wanderlust. If this is it until the grave, I couldn't ask for more.
Hey Great to hear you have your Crack up and running. Would I be correct in thinking you are UK based?
