but people seem to get the hd650 and underamp them. at first i thought they were good with a 120$ amp but after a little while, i was looking for more. now that i have a very expensive amp, the hd650 truly shines as a reference headphone. yes the signature might not be for everyone but they sound amazing.
Absolutely! Many, if not most, never hear the real HD650's for that reason - they're underamped.
And... it is a little known fact... that with the proper source and amp the "new version" HD650's (and HD580/600's) can sound as good as the HifiMan and Stax phones.
