Sennheiser HD650 Impressions Thread - Page 19

post #271 of 36903

Well... I Guess...

Well... I guess... I get the following phones in this order to "complement" the HD650s: AD2000s, RS-1s (or RS-2s, SR225s), HD580/600s ("new" version).

If you can't increase your budget for your amp above $300 (to get the DV332)... then... I'd get the Meier Corda Move / 2Move (great with the HD580/600s - s/b w HD650s also).

Right, I got my HD650s. Haven't listened to them yet though.

Can I check if they're "new" or "old" by looking through the grills? Or do I have to take the foam off?

Also, how do I loosen them up? They clamp very tightly. I remember reading a few posts about it, but I can't find them now.

Last question - what does defoaming them actually do to the sound?

You have to look under the foam to check if they're old or new.
Defoaming makes them a bit brighter. Try it. It takes only 10 seconds to remove them (or put them back).

i've had my hd650 for several months now, and i love them. i have not even bothered to check if it's the new models or old.
i've used it with gilmore lite with dps for about 4 months. just got a little-dot mk iv se a few weeks ago.
i liked my hd650 with little dot better (a lot better), and sold the glite right away.

Oh man, these are painful.

Just spent an hour listening to them and my ears are hurting quite badly. They're comfortable, but the clamp really hurts after a while.

@scottyyy
try to bend the metal, but not the headband

btw i like the foamed version better, i feel something wrong with the defoamed version, maybe lighter bass and brighter, not like HD650 at all

Maybe you should invest in a good amp? This sounds like my impression when using the HD650 with the echo indigo IO. It sounds like I'm listening to my Daft Punk Alive 2007 album with Bangalter's Helmet outside in the audience its so congested and flabby. I've owned and listened to some decent to great amps and the HD650 can because an amazing phone with a liquid midrange, tight bass, and good highs that never contains a hint of cymbalance with a decent quality source. Really, please see if you can audition a decent amp, these are inefficient phones even though they are only 300 ohm, going balanced goes an extra mile.

I so agree with you. Even though I need everything my LD MKII can throw at my 650's, this is a great pairing. Solid state is now optional.
