They arrived earlier this week. It feels good to be listening to my HD 650s again. I was going through withdrawl. It was pretty bad. Anyway, it felt like I was going through a brief burn-in period. When I first used them, it seemed as though the bass was lacking. Everything opened really quickly after I started listening for a little bit.

 

Currently, I have my HD 650s hooked up to my Fiio X3. I set it to high gain and set the bass to 2. They drive my headphones surprisingly well. I'd definitely recommend this simple setup for someone who doesn't want to spend a ton of money on a DAC and amp.

That´s what I love about Sennheiser, you can always get missing parts or new ones. That makes the product and service priceless (IMO) 

I can imagine how it was for you, having some memories and getting to know your HP once again, I´m glad it all work out great. I listen to my HD650 with my DX50 on gain 2 and I like too the way it sounds. I know that there are some better options but for me, it works great when I´m working or doing something where I have to move and can stay at my desk

I am running my 650's through the meier corda arietta amp with the volume at 2 o'clock,
and an audio gd-fun as DAC/preamp set to noon.

I was just trying out the Fiio X3 with my HD 650s because I recently bought it for my IEMs. I am curious about the Uber Bifrost, though. Does it require another amp or can it be used as a standalone effectively? Also, was there a huge difference going from regular Bifrost to Uber? I notice Amazon.com has both for sale, but only the regular version has free shipping.

I was going to suggest a Sky Hook, but thought better of it :wink_face:

Look at Banana stands on ebay its easy to mod

Guys,

 

what would you buy as amp and dac for HD650 under 400$? I was thinking about AGD NFB-11.32 or Compass 2 with Sabre. Crack OTL looks good, too, but I don't want to build it myself.

 

It can be Schiit, O2, ... whatever, just want the best sound for my buck. 

 

Thank's for help!

*coughs - HiFi-M8*.......

 

This thing is impressing me more and more with the HD650.  I really want to do a head to head against the Crack.

I have found a deal on a pair of used (most probably older version) HD650. I mostly listen to Jazz (piano trios and female voices) and some classic rock. Should I proceed with the buy? Has anyone experimented with non-Sennheiser earpads? Any suggestions (I will have to replace those). Many thanks!

You can get a simple hook at Walmart/Home depot that will suffice. And BHPhoto has the Senn clip stand for $13.50. I snagged one when I got a new set of pads.

AFAIK...the consensus is that the stock pads are about as good as it gets for comfort and maintaining the sound signature. The he60 pads will fit but alter the signature and not in a good way IMO.

Thanks! I have seen some cheaper (~50% off) at ebay. Has anyone tried them?

I've been going through a number of threads comparing the HD600 to the HD650. Is it fair to say that in terms of SQ the HD600 being a more neutral pair of headphones is liked better than the HD650 by slightly more people on Head Fi even though it is cheaper?

 

Edited: typo HD650 to HD600

I think that you mean 600 to 650. And one is not favored over the other by most here. They are equally regarding depending on your personal preference.
