There are some better ?

Specially with Hifiman product ...

I don't know the answer, but holy crap does that Renault engine sound good. Much better than today's V6 turbo engines :rolleyes: 

 

Though not all V6's are bad I suppose. McLaren's MP4/4, that was legendary, and it had a V6.

Did someone say McLaren? I pulled up to traffic light, last week, and saw this in front of me (and, yes, the engine sound was legendary):

I listened to some heavy metal out of my Nexus 5 smartphone and was surprised by a couple of things:

  • I got pretty good volume and soundstage
  • I got lots of bass

 

This left me wondering:

  • how much more bass am I gonna get out of these things if I use a desktop amplifier?

 

Wondering if it's gonna be too much.

I don't believe it will be too much bass....depending on the amp will determine how good the bass is though.

 

It can overall sound boomy....it can also sound tight and controlled  :smile: 

 

Overall I consider it a great can across the whole spectrum.......the same way haters hate Grado's for the bright treble.....haters hate the HD650 for the dark and lack of treble to some.

 

I would not worry about to much bass....you can EQ a tad of bass out with decent results....adding bass with EQ.....not so much.

 

They are a great can, I would say you will like them if the first impression was good.

 

I will be using them with my

  • HT Omega eClaro sound card which I understand has a solid state amplifier
  • Denon TX-NR509 stereo receiver which is.... a mystery box because I don't know what its headphone-out resources are, but it powers my rather power-hungry Grado SR 225i's well enough

 

The 650s definitely had me foot-tappin' in Best Buy when I was auditioning them through my Nexus 5.

 

I guess the next thing to do is to just get them and find out what they'll do.

Yeah, also no offence to BB, but you may find them priced better elsewhere. They burnt me a long time ago on some other Sennheisers.

You're in for a helluva surprise once you hit them with some serious power :beerchug:

No doubt.

 

Honestly that's what impressed me the most about the 650s. I listened to them through a VModa Vamp Verza out of my phone at ACGears in NYC, which is a little store that wasn't what you'd call "quiet", and I was pretty stunned at how "solid" they sounded.

 

That's what caught me about them, actually. They didn't have any standout features. I wasn't wowed by the bass, the treble, the soundstage, nothing. The flip side was that I couldn't say anything was wrong. And that's a great thing. It was just this really enjoyable cohesive unit.
