I thought they were okay, as in, they pretty much beat out every other portable candidate in the price range that I've heard, apart from the C421. Which isn't saying much. I do agree that they obviously lack compared to something like the Violectrics, or the EF5s. Turning the gain up didn't seem to help either. Had to use the HD650+E17 combo once because the store's Asgard was being hogged rolleyes.gif.

Will something like this help?  E17 --> Rolls HA43 ?

post #7998 of 36890

I been jumping back and forth between this and the HE-400's.


And lately I've been leaning towards the 650's. My only problem is, I think the 650's are kind of tight (the clamp). My 600's don't clamp that hard. I'm assuming over time these will loosen up.


But is there there any tips on loosening these up?

I didn't feel the 650s clamp uncomfortable, but...

 

for my DT990s, I put a bunch of books inside them to spread the headband.  Make sure to test them periodically so as to not over-loosen them.

I think the issue is the size of the pads and where they sit on my jaw/head. It's hard to explain. I probably just have a weird shaped head. Heh.

 

Thanks for the tip. Will try!

I wouldn't worry so much about the clamp. The pads will "conform" and flatten to the shape of your head with use. You can also stretch the metal of the headband without stressing the top of the headband (the plastic portion). Do a search to see the removal process. 

 

I'm quite sensitive to clamp and these are fine for me. 

 

gL!!

Gently spread them apart a few times. They are well built so careful tension will work fine.

Purchased the HD650's last week. I was after a bit of extra impact over my Alessandro MS Pros (which I still love) and I found my dt250 to be one of the most boring headphones I have ever heard. 

 

WHOA!!! I couldn't be happier, the sound is amazing imo, the comfort is great too. Im using them with a Meier Corda Classic Amp, and are a great match for each other.

I'm equally impressed with this hp. I'm amping with the lyr bifrst and am truly amazed with the result!!

post #8005 of 36890

Portable amp for HD650 sounds odd to me, considering HD650s don't seal at all, nor collapse/fold/flatten.

post #8006 of 36890

Yeah,HD650 for portable use..i like that crazy idea,like listening to it paired with an huge O2 while waiting the movie to start at the cinema!Btw my own pair is closer to home,maybe today it will be here,now for the O2 and Odac i don't even have any prediction...

Some folks may already have an amp (like a portable one).

I am using the MKII for mine as of now. I cant compare it to any other tube amps at this time though. 

I will be getting a Lyr for it at some point though. 

post #8009 of 36890

lyr doesn't disappoint on any level for me. Dynamics, power, bass, detail...it's all there. Fantastic match for the hd6500!!
