I have a question about my older pair of 650's. I have had these for about 7-8 years now

and they have the older dark colored drivers. Has anyone updated their headphones

to the new light colored driver and was there any appreciable difference?

 

Another question. Has anyone tried the HD-600 drivers? I just wanted to try

something different possibly.


Burn-In = Pads. There is no difference between the "old" and the "new" ones.

Except when you take pads out of the equation by having music or pink noise playing through the headphone while you aren't using it.  Then you can tell that pads alone don't account for the small changes that occur with burn-in.

I listened to Gorillaz Demon Days for the first time last night through the 650's and was absolutely blown away. I listened to the album three times last night it sounded so good haha

Loving the HD650 a lot of late. It gets just as much head time as the HD800. Haven't changed or added anything to my rig for some time now. Finally stopped thirsting for different or more... stuff. Just enjoying the music.

A headphone amp upgrade for my 650's that will also power planars, when I am able to save enough $$$, seeking input. Have received good advice on the Schiit Line ( my last name is Heine so it is a natural ;-), though which amp? Others? All past, current and future advice is appreciated, though my budget is somewhat limited due to a brush with death in 2007 that left me disabled. Thanks to all!!!

So the 650's are a "warmer" sound and the 600's are more analytical?

 

I was about to pull the trigger on the 600's but eventually went for the HD800's which are highly analytical and I enjoy them in their own right, but I'm interested in the warmer sounding reports made of the 650's.

 

Any HD800 and 650 owners who can give an opinion as to just how warm the 650's sound in comparison?

 

Thanks :)

Honestly don't even bother with these if you own the LCD, HE6, and HD800.

I own all 3 and I think the 6** complement the 800s very well. I prefer the 600s but if you want even more of a contrast to the 800s neutral / maybe slightly bright sig then the 650s will be the best option but the 600s are also warm enough to make them a good alternative. I could live with the 600s as my only HP but I couldn't do that with the 800s or 650 so that says it all really.

Thanks for your reply - another head-fi member commented to not bother looking at the 650's due to me owning the HD800's and a few other top tier cans, but I assumed this is because they don't assume there would be any SQ gain to be had when compared to the 650's.

 

So its interesting to read another perspective from yourself.

 

There's nowhere near to me to audition the 600's or 650's for myself, so asking the right questions to owners is my best approach to understanding the difference in sound between these cans, though I understand everybody has their own take on what they hear and sound is subjective.

 

Can I ask you, what makes the HD600's your one can winner over the HD800's & the 650's?

If money is tight, maybe start scouring Craigslist for vintage receivers?  Some can definitely push hard to drive cans...
