+1

 

My thoughts exactly; I've been listening to a lot of music with an emphasis on percussion (e.g., Cream) or a pulsing, driving rhythm (e.g., Lorde).  These really are the most engaging phones I've ever listened to, but it's taken some time for me to get there.

 

I wasn't thrilled with the sound when I first tried them out...

The he500 is a mature product and the he560 seems to be working a few bugs out still. 

post #17450 of 28508

taken a quick look at the 560, they are still keeping the old connectors...???? or am i mistaken

post #17451 of 28508

yes, keeping them. Unfortunately. I lobbied for a change but got shot down. I figured that they were doing a complete redesign why not the connectors also? 

 

They could have gotten mad props for mini xlr...

Im a huge fan of the HD650s I still have mine and use them from time to time. I got my HD800s now that I use with my desktop setup now. 650s served me well for around 5 years though and I won't forget them!

I imagine that they are delayed because their predecessor the 560 is having production proplems/tweaks.

Im changing mine new 650 to something else. Since I need closed cans due to my wife wrecking my head. I got offer to swap for Denon 7100 I hope im not going to be disappointed. Has anyone compared 650 to these Denons. I know they getting mixed reviews but that doesn't bother me that much. Would like to hear from someone owning both headphones.

Be aware while D7100 are closed they don't isolate well
post #17460 of 28508
Well Ill give them a try anyway. Not a big fan of closed cans but yeah whatever, can't stand my wife bitching me. Will post a comparison here once I got them.
