Theres quite a few decent closed back headphones but i dont own any so cant comment i use shure 535's for portable use ive read good things about the shure srh840 and the srh940.

But have you tried the e17 docked into a e9?  b/c I think that is what the question is asking.

i havnt tried it the dock has better power output the e17 just works as a dac theres a low bypass switch for when its docked, i just use the e17 with a L7 for usb>line-out>objective 2.

Not nearly enough HD650 Fan's out there! I am amazed at how much headphones are taking off. I was in a shoe store yesterday and they were selling HP;s at the counter...The Sync wireless ones for $300....Get your Nike's and headphones here!

Hey guys... I know there are a bunch of threads on amps for this headphone, and I have read a bunch... that being said, it borders on too much information to really parse through and process.  If you dont mind me asking here, I was hoping to get some concise opinions.

 

 

1.)  What is the difference in sound from a SS vs a tube amp with these headphones?  It seems people like them with either, but I'd say more prefer tube.

 

 

2.)  I read varying accounts of how nice an amp is needed to power these, at least to a respectable level.  It seems most agree they really excel with a better amp, but a lot of people contend an cheaper amp will still do ok.  It seems the O2 is well though of.  I need to pick up something *semi* portable (aka wont be a pain to fit in a laptop bag), and Id prefer this amp doesnt break the bank.  Is this as good a match as I've read, on the cheap/portable side of things?

 

 

Any info and opinions on the subject is appreciated.

o2 is a great amp for the money it's just not a great match with hd 650 IMO.

post #7965 of 18420

I was only asking if the 650 and E7/E9 would be a good starting setup, if it would be good or just like "meh", even coming from QC15s I was mainly worried about the E7 as the DAC). I think the E17 would be a bit out of budget. I'll recommend the E7/E9 combo, thanks guys!
