Sennheiser HD650 Impressions Thread - Page 1093

post #16381 of 36886

For those looking to double down on the Sennheiser rebates with a promotion from Razordog or someone else, I sent an email to Sennheiser and got this not-quite definitive response: "~~The Spring Rebate is only for selected models and would be reflected in the price offer by a re-seller."

 

I take from this that the rebate will work only if the re-seller has priced accordingly.  Again, it's not definitive, but it would probably be long shot you can double down with the rebate.

 

I'll be posting this in the deals thread as well in case someone has gotten a firmer answer.

Thank you for sharing it with us. Although if it does not work out, I personally will still be content with having paid $390 for headphones I have been wanting for so long. I am just going to send in the rebate regardless, hoping for the best.

These headphones give me the chills when I hear female vocals.  If headphones can get better than this.... I'm in for a treat.  (and to think, the crack w/speedball isn't here yet, and should improve upon what I'm hearing through my Lyr)

Guys I'm from India. Just bought one HD 650 as got it at around USD 350. Till now I had one Ath 50 and fiio x3. I want to know whether the fiio x3 will properly drive the new cans? Right now I cannot spend much. But will perhaps follow any guidance in the long run.
Regards
Somnath

I get the Shame part. Now can anyone suggest me anything decent in around 500 USD which will drive the cans acceptably? I may reach there in a few months.

Something from Schiit probably is the best schiit for budget. I would get the Asgard 2 and a decent dac.

on another note I'm gonna get a crack just to see what the hype is all about, just hope it doesn't sound better than my current amp

post #16391 of 36886

A nice tube amp, you should be able to get, would be the Little Dot MK IV. Great sound, great price, and lots of tube rolling options. Regular version is 289USD and the SE version is 389USD.

I'm listening to my HD650 using my X3 as USB DAC, FLAC, Joe Bonamassa low gain, volume only 26. Full pelt it should give around 115dB - but I don't want to damage my hearing :happy_face1:

Sufficient Volume doesn't equate to a good amp for HD650... just as sufficient volume for earbuds doesn't equate to good sound :D.

 

However... the HD650 are really not as unforgiving to drive as some of us here say. In truth, most amps can make them at least pleasing to listen to. Yet, as we all generally agree here, the HD650 scales up very well with good amps.

 

As with the others here, if you have $500 to spend I'd say get some Schiit :D (DAC and amp)

Nothing like a good Schiit!  :biggrin:
