Brian at Razordog is awesome. If you don't care about warranty, Shoreline music has new ones in their closeout section for $325.

He keeps items like this listed as private also. Make him an offer, or wait. Many forum members buy from him. Never seen a compaint that I recall.  good luck.

Are the HD 650s a little more realistic? How do they do for films and games? 



Haggle with a local store. I got my local long & mcquade to do $405 plus tax on my hd600. See if they will price match, and say you have been a loyal customer, and would hate to have to take your buisness elseware. (also good to lower your cell phone bills ;)

I ordered a wireless audio transceiver. Super fast shipping. Seemed like a great company. The HD650's are listed as "Overstock. Regular price $499. Several available at this price. Sold as-is." The guy told me they were new though and never opened.

 

Whoever hears about a HD650 breaking? That being said, I'd probably pay $20 more and get them authorized from Brian.

i need some sort of case or something for my 650s.

i got them really cheap partly because he had destroyed the case.

 

anybody got ideas that these will actually fit into?

post #6276 of 37349

Thanks for all the answers guys! I'll see about razordog deals or shoreline, I'm not sure that I have any local hi-fi shops near me.

buy from razordogdeals.

 

dude is awesome and ships fast. ive purchased hd650s and hd25-1 ii's from him. received both fast and why would you worry about 20 bucks when 2 year warranty is at stake.

Theres a semi-hard case on ebay that goes for around $35 and looks nice. Do a search.

I have HD558's and HD650's currently..   love my HD650's to death and figured I would ask your folks opinions on this:  Have an opportunity to grab a set of HD600's from a friend.  Is there enough of a sonic difference between the HD600's and my current collection to make it worthwhile?  I've tried reading about this as much as possible but it often appears that in reviews the 600/650 get lumped together despite headfonia's review stating they are different.  

 

Anyone own both and like them both?

I have the 600 and i used to own the 558. I find the 558 is (slightly) more aggressive in the upper mids/treble, while the 600 hits harder down low, is more balanced/neutral has better imaging and seperation as well as a larger soundstage. For me it was a definate upgrade. The 600 sounds more like a high end can. The 600 and 650 are more alike than diffrent. i find the 650's are a slightly darker 600.
