Something that's a really useful advice: Before buying a HD650, you should really really really listen to HD600. Just recently discovered HD600 and I'm in love with it's sound :veryevil:

Hmmm... I've listened to the Valhalla and it's OK, but it doesn't "fill the void" all the way up to the $2,500 ZDS.

 

I know this thread is basically a Schitt fanboy page, but the lower-end Woo Audio amps are a nice step up and way below the amps you mention above in price. I personally believe my WA3 outperforms the much-loved Bottlehead Crack, based on my listening experience at meets (I've never owned one).

LOL sometimes the raw truth needs telling  :evil:

 

Also had WA6 and liked it with my 650 then.

It looks like a successor to the V100:

For me I was having trouble with the HD 800 (I didin't have the HD 800 S and the Utopia back then and was also using the Hugo 1) so I wanted a headphone that played nice on everything. The HD 600 was also giving me troubles also on certain recordings so I went with the HD 650 in the end :P

 

But the HD 600 is nice also. I was thinking many times if I shouldn't have gone with HD 600 instead of the HD 650.

I've been ripping the last of my music linbrary to FlAC, and cds I no longer have I've been locating on eBay. Mostly in very good shape and even quite a few new ones. If anyone interested in cds for readonable prices maybe give them a shot. You've never got enough music. Oh. I'm a multibit fanboy

No balanced inputs but a bal HP output. Cutting costs there?

Odd design choice, imo.

 

Edit: I can understand the choice - many people own sources that have only SE outputs. Still....

Especially considering the G109P does have balanced inputs but not balanced HP out.

What's your call name on eBay, friend?  Ship to The Blessed Land (Canada)? :D

Got a new pair of HD650's coming from Amazon (it's a good time to buy now, prices have been bouncing around 315-350 the last day). Going to pair it with my Jotunheim, I find my Denon D2K's a tad bright, but I always have, no matter what amp. Im excited to try these Iconic headphones for the first time.

 

Anyone know of a guide to reterminate the stock cable to balanced, should be pretty easy

I went the other way, had the HD650 for over a year before buying a HD600, couldn't pass up the price on black Friday 2015 ($229), found out that the 4-5khz peaks of the HD600 bother me at times so I sold them to a friend who really wanted them and built a Ypsilon to take its place.  After my friend who bought the HD600 from me heard the Ypsilon she also sold the HD600 and built her own Ypsilon, in her words the HD600 is not even close in dynamics, sound stage and FR, and you don't need a amp since they sound great from a computer headphone output.
