Sennheiser HD650 Impressions Thread - Page 1204

post #18046 of 18415
Thanks for the input guys. Aye, I'm happy with the comfort as is but I'd like to hear if there's a difference in sound all the same. I'm certainly not going to pay $150 for the privilege though.

You could always sell them again... and probably have it only cost shipping or the equivalent.

I am prolly going to put my HD650 up for sale soon.....if anybody following this thread may be interested shoot me a pm......like for them to go to someone who is really excited to get a pair.  If no one here is interested, then I will post in b/s/t

 

They have always been keep on a headphone stand....even had a dust cover over them on stand, when not in use.

 

Great cans....it has been an honor to use these cans and they have been great fun....I hate to get rid of them...but something has to go  :smile:

I'm actually really interested.

I've been looking to upgrade from my HD598's and I've been scouring information about the HD650 needing excessive amping for a decent sound. How much would I be expected to spend for an Amp+DAC to justify an upgrade from the 598's?

Amping? Yes. Excessive? No... Modi/Magni combo is at the minimum, which is under $200.

Your post had me thinking about a leather pad on the HD650. I cannibalized the mounting ring from an old pair of pads, inserted them into a HM5  pads(also oval and about the stock 650 pad size), and it fit quite nice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

They sound fantastic.

Deeper bass, everything sounds a bit tighter.

This looks good. Who makes those pads?

Brainwavz, but the mounting ring is from the actual Hd650 pad, I have changed them a few times so I had old pads around to destroy.
