+1 I'm a crack addict. I love how forgiving the HD650s are with poorly recorded music. They don't make everything sound good, but I have a bunch of songs the HD800s ripped apart that are listenable on the 650s.


off-topic: is there a way to filter posts with the word 'cable' in them?

If only!  There are several "appreciation" threads (for headphones that I own), that I would honestly love to follow on a daily basis...if only 2 out of 3 posts didn't make me physically cringe based on cable related content.  Honestly, I'd probably be willing to pay head-fi an annual subscription fee if it would give me access to such a filter.

^ btw, I am curious, did you ever try any decent cables and did not hear any change at all? or you just based on theory that cable is just cable?

My opinions on cables are not part of why I want to filter those posts. Certain threads get derailed on a constant basis by this topic and I realize it will never end. I'd rather not see the same 'they work/no they don't' topic over and over.

Sending you a PM now to avoid further derailing the discussion beerchug.gif

This thread was locked by the moderators a couple of months ago when a cable discussion turned personal and ugly. It would be a shame to lose it.

+1 let's play nice!!

This may be really random..

 

but anyone else here listen to their headphones in bed? I'm afraid of falling asleep with my HD650s on :( 

 

They're just so comfortable that I somethings doze off listening to ambient/house music lol

Recreational hazard!

I sometimes fall asleep with them on in a recliner. But not the bed.

So, I am listening to Al Stewart's, The Year of the Cat on the HD650's. Source is my HP Elite PC running JRiver with uncompressed .WAV files ripped from the original CD. Digital out to Cambridge DacMagic Plus to Decware CSP2+ Tube HP amp. As usual the 650's are paired with my Toxic Cable Silver Poison's....

Fantastic...Holographic...This is what it is all about.......Life is Good! biggrin.gif

What I wrote was a pretty harmless, qualified and softly worded dissent...  I assume the waters were a lot more choppy when things got locked down?  In any event, there should be room here, as anywhere else, to express civil disagreement over the best way to invest in making our respective HD650's sound as good as possible.  Opinions and rationales differ.  That's okay.

do a search for hd650 amps theres a few threads discussing amps for the hd650 it a good place to start.
