I just got a pair of well-loved HD650's and have to say I love them. They are missing their foam, which might be a reason why I don't think they are overly bassy nor veiled. My only other reference is the SRH840's (still love them), so my impressions may be different from others, but I like them so far. In fact, I would be hesitant to even try something like the K701's at this point because I don't think I would like anything with more treble or dryness or lack of warmth. I am doing a fancy recable as soon as I have all the parts to see how it changes the sound.
Oh, and they sound great with my Bravo amp. Can't handle anything past about 9:30 on my volume knob as it starts to hurt my ears.
I am really enjoying my HD650 the last few days. they are finally settled and i "grew" on them apparentely .
anyway, some time before I really thought they were unbassy and too aggresive in the mids and highs so i used an EQ for a while with my computer.
anyway..it was nice for a while,but I always was unsatisfied with every combination i tried..the bass was really massive (because i made it that way) but there was something unreal to it...not like the D5000 at all. and also the mids and highs sounded bad, that's because my computer sounds like crap.
so I came back to my regular rig, without any EQ, and AH...that's much much better, and guess what..the bass is right on the spot for me right now.
I think i will never use EQ again (but don't take me on that).
please forgive me my non-EQing friends cause i've sinned
they sound good as they are, without any EQ. like every other good pair of headphones. but we learn from every thing we do and try.
