I'am about to purchased this headphone(HD650)how is it compared to DT880 600 ohms?

My source will be Laptop,TEAC UD H01,Bottlehead Crack and Littledot MK III for this headphone.THANKS!

More boomy bass overall, better presence from midbass to midrange (think vocals), more polite treble, less subbass, shallower image/soundstage, making a more intimate feel.

How i wish it have the Q's large soundstage i love large soundstage and bright sound signature.Thanks!

Then it wouldn't be the HD650. Your description kinda fits the HD800 though, you might want to shoot for that.

The HD800 or Beyer T1 are what you're looking for. Which one is better for you?  answer is the HD800 If you prefer the HD600 over DT880, otherwise T1.

Hi all. Due to a new addition to the family, my headphone days are sadly over. I've put my SB'd cap-modded Crack, my HD650s and a couple of tubes (GEC brown base & TS 5998) on eBay UK. They're all pretty cheap. 200 quid for the Crack. 90 for the phones. 40 for the tubes. They've just got to make way. Pretty gutted to be honest as the SB Crack + GEC & E80CC + HD650s are basically the best I've ever heard music but yeah, a bittersweet feeling, I suppose.

I still am a fan of the HD650...Still one of the most tonally accurate cans to my ears.

 

All this talk of the treble being too muted is a load of crap in context to a reality based reference.

 

Of all the headphones I own the HD650 is exacto (the most correct) with treble levels when I reference the percussion and imaging test track....coming from a drumming background with lots of cymbal experience.

 

I can't stand how Senheisser turned its back on THE sound that MADE IT FAMOUS. 

 

The HD600 has the EXACT same strengths and weaknesses as the HD650 in terms of articulation and they sound fundamentally the same to me with only a tiny variance...the difference is easily made up with the volume control or playing a different track.  HD650 in the studio....believe it....very common.

 

HiFiman might have brought this sound over to us poor ass summit fi excluded...Hifiman are fast becoming legends...Robin Hood for us broke asses.  I might check out a pair soon.

Do you have a link or a search term?  I am not able to find the listing (unless it's restricted to UK only).

 

Congrats on the new addition, but sorry the phones have to go.

I know I really enjoy the 560 (I'm a drummer as well). Not sure I can completely agree with you on the 650 treble, I did find a veil for certain. It wasn't a significant problem, but I did eventually have trouble with that aspect and sold mine keeping my DT 880 instead. That said, I have a great deal of respect for the 650 as they unquestionably for many years carried the torch where best cost/performance ratio was concerned (as did the DT 880) and offered a signature that was so engaging and musical to boot.

 I heard the HD800 and T1 with Burson Conductor at the shop.The HD800 to me is a bit harsh,T1 very similar to DT880 only deeper bass and smoother treble IMO the T1 is not really a big step up to DT880 these are my opinion for these Headphones i wish i can afford them.Thanks!
