+1 I was able to a/b test the 650's and 800's at a high end audio shop recently, and while the HD800 had a better soundstage, the 650 sounded better to me in every way. The HD800 has insane highs, it makes for some super detailed sound, and they do sound really good still, but i'm sure It would for sure give me a headache after a while. The 650s have better bass, more punch, and really everything sounds amazing on them. Just my input :)

I had the same impression. While HD800 sounded very detailed (to the point of being harsh) and open, they didn't feel as intimate and joyful as either HD650 or LCD-2.

can anyone help me?

when i listen to certain flac songs like rock music i tend to hear crackling sounds when the vocalist screams or if instruments use high pitch frequency

this when i plugin to my computer directly, and also with amp and dac

could maybe owners of 650 listen to the same audio file as me and tell me if they can hear the crackling issue too?

Not an issue with the 650. Check to see if your flac files are complete and check the settings of your player and/or amp or dac. Otherwise, maybe it is an issue with your 650. But I do not have that issue with mine.

Oh my lord...

So, the HD 650s I ordered came in a few minutes ago. They are absolutely PERFECT!!! 

My search for the perfect headphone is done. These are it. I knew I had a good feeling about them. I no longer have to worry about harsh treble, not enough bass or mids, everything is just absolutely perfectly balanced, and it just sounds unbelievably lifelike. The bass in these is only rivaled by my AKG K712s, and even then, they sound extremely similar. I love the intimate yet amazing soundstage, I don't like super wide soundstage, as that takes away from actually hearing the music as it is. 

 

Man, I am SO glad I bought these, I can't possibly ask for anything better. Looks like the HD 650s have earned another hardcore fan!

 

Also, forgot to add, that these have amazing detail. I don't understand, what is it with people saying these are "veiled"? No way these are veiled, AT ALL. People must have other headphones with super big treble spikes if they think these are veiled.

This could be anything but it is probably not the HD 650's. It could be the tube amp or the connection to your computer.
