Hah someone will give it a home before me I suppose. It took me 3 years to buy the HD650...it might take me another three to pair it with the amp it would love the most.

 

 

But I think partially the reason why I am so excited is because man....I remember when I first got into audio or at least saw a high end headphone online on amazon or something. This was maybe 8 years ago? I remember seeing it and back then the HD650 was lauded as quite possibly the best headphone in the world. It was a moniker you'd often hear associated with the can online. I remember imagining...what must that sound like? I wanted to hear it so bad...I wanted to see it so bad. Years later...I will finally have one. It's an actual dream come true for me and I can't be any happier about it.

Think of it as just as good of a deal as your HD650s ;).  I think the icing on the cake is it will be pre-assembled.  It's literally put itself together for you!

Try Forza Audioworks. I couldn't be any happier with the cable, and it cost about 80€. They have cheaper options too, I think.

"Moisturiser", really? I'm not sure if that's a joke or not. Is there a specific variant to use? I'm looking for a smooth, warm sound.

Ha ha don't use Nivea for men it tends to effect female vocals badly . Being serious though I've never owned a headphone and had an issue with the cable. I suppose I could understand someone wanting a shorter cable for the 650 but softer?! That did make me smile .

If I'm in Boots I've already made a mistake, no point compounding it by going down the men's "grooming" aisle. My wife prefers me au naturel.

I don't mind the cable quality but the length can be a pain sometimes. To remedy this I've ordered a 1m cable with 6.3mm plug and also a 2m extension with 6.3mm socket to 6.3mm plug, both from Forza Audio Works. I opted for the (relatively) cheap "Colour" version. If it's as good as the original I'll be happy. If the workmanship is good I'm going to order a 1m Noir cable.

We shall see.

I got the HD650 a year ago.  An used pair. They sound great, very sweet and mild sound. Nice as a contrast to the T1's.

That's a good set of complementary hp's!!

If I hadn't already had an itchy trigger finger for the LCD2 and shipping to Canada wasn't such a pain... I'd be all over Matt's Crack.

I'd get the crack too, if it weren't for my empty purse!I guess my LD MKIII will have to do for the meanwhile.

If you role in the right tubes, the Little Dot MK III can be a mean little amp. I'm using 6N6P-I power tubes and Siemens 6AK5W drivers.

I just started this addiction going from the Grado sr 80i to the Sennheiser HD 650.  I just stopped lurking and joined; I guess this was just a long winded HELLO. :)

post #17189 of 18435
Sr80 to hd650? Wow what an interesting leap!
post #17190 of 18435

From my research it seemed they both were the best at their respective price points.  I am very happy I stepped up as the sound of the 650's are more to my liking.  It would be interesting to hear others 650 owners opinions on the Grado sr 80i.
