Sennheiser HD650 Impressions Thread - Page 4

post #46 of 20616
Any opinions about a Millet / HD650 marriage available?
(I don't talk about the brave pimped BTech - to mention BTech at headfi is like mentioning John Kerry at a Texas N.R.A. meeting...)

I love my HD650 too and I'm getting my Musical Fidelity X-Can v3 amp this week so they'll sound even better

After that I'll probably get a cable replacement.

However I still would buy a Stax if I had the money.

You don't have to feel bad, you still have a respectable amp there.

LOL, beautiful analogy


Electrically, the Millet will be perfectly fine with the HD650; sonically it should be fine also, although an M^3 I guess would be better.

Thanx, Andrea.

But I have something to say:

also reading the posts in the right way and being intelligent need talent.
For what concerns finding sinergic stuff, it needs experience, a lot of experience, trial and errors and a lot of listening with many electronics and acoustics and cables.

The HD650 sounds "well" with a lot equipment. But high-end is another thing.
It shows high-end features with very specific equipment. This is a fact.
Till now, I've experienced this "delight" with two amps (Rp5.1 and Earmax Pro) and three cd-players (Meridian G07, Linn Sondek CD12 and Audio Analogue Maestro), and still I feel a replacement cable necessary.

I hope there are other setup that can extract a lot of musicality from the HD650, but I believe that the very high qualities that can take the HD650 near an electrostatic sound can achieved only with near-no-compromise devices (cheap devices need compromises by definition).

A system doesn't need to be expensive to sound good (now I'm about to implement a real cheap amp+headphone setup, about 300 euro of Meier H5 plus a Grado Sr80 with original bowls, and I'm confident it will sound astonishingly good).
Sadly, HD650 need no-compromise setup to sound *really* good.

This is the good of the HD650: good sound also with "cheap" device (but careful, it can be a bit boring in dynamic), and very high feature with less-compromise devices.

But one have to listen at least once to those high qualities with other equipment like electrostat (but not only) to know what they are and have the feel of need this. I admit that one can be happy with "less sound", but please don't pretend to know what you don't know.

Taking the HD650 really up, sadly, is a steep ladder, but with a lot of amazing time spent in listening to music.

Happy music man.

PPA is an excellent match to the HD-650. IMO, maxed out PPA is in the same league as the HR-2, and HR Max. For the current used price in the market, it is a steal!

If that's the case, I guess you don't mind it if I'll continue my trolling...

That must represent you. Part of it is true of everyone, but you know, there exist such things called intuition, maturity of taste, and plain... talent; that is, the more direct road to the target - whereas others have to get to it through the troubled road.

My thinking about "high-end" is that it's something you deserve.

You have too many definitions to shed out, things are more intricate, and controversial, in real life. Btw, not all people think that electrostatic sound is desirable

Funnily, with my equipment, I'm all but sad.

This is so obvious by now, that it sounds trivial.

You're also assuming that you know what you don't know...

I hope you'll sometime get to appreciate the HD650 just how much I've always appreciated it myself.

Oh, btw.

So I am no more (the only guy) in your ignore list, why?

Well, that's my fault, I was taken by your foolish provocation, again.

Man, you have a mental patologic problem, you follow every post of mine (and also Nik's ones sometimes) to comment and trying to insult (precisely, saying about the talent and the fact that I buy "expensive" stuff only for their price and not for their sound... that's really STUPID and childish actions to trying to attack my person) and to go against my posts, whatever they say, from your strictly inexperienced fakish point of view (have you ever listen to the HD650 with real high-end equipment in comparison with your equipment? No? well, I did it with mine and I know what I'm saying): go to see a doctor, you need it.

You know I'm not a fool and who I am in this field, so, for me, you can get lost immediately, I have more precious thing in my life that read your ridicolous posts.

CHANNEL CLOSED and sorry for the bad OT to the others

Dear nickchen, I'm not saying that a good sound can be achieved only with expensive thins, because this is not.

But pretend to have a sound with relatively "entry level" devices that is in pair with higher equipment (given that both setup are well sinergic, because obviously a badly-choosen high-end setup can sound in the end worse than a simpler but more good-choosen one) is simply stupid and childish.
I had a "cheap" setup for a long time (with some very very good sinergic combo) , and I've never though that, I was precisely aware of the limits (and especially of the qualities) of that equipment.

As I have said in my precedent post, IMO the HD 650 is a good cans, I always said this when I had them with RP5 and with the EarMax AE, good, very good. But I can say excellent, TOP class only after I heard them with the Cary/AVVT c-37, Tung Sol RP./Equinox, yes, this setup I prefer to many of TOP class setups I had (R10, Qualia, L3000, Omega...). Now the last comparison will be HD650 vs K 1000 with the same Cary amp.

true potential

the hd650 must be paired with the right setup to sound amazing
