Grasp the earcup firmly with one hand. Grasp the earpad velour earpad firmly with the other hand and pull them apart.

They snap together.

My pair, purchased back in 2004 from TTJV, has absolutely clear diaphragm, without any marks, numbers, or words printed.

We're talking about the driver, not diaphragm.

Sorry for my bad english, but at now I'm not really sure already about what does the "driver" mean. To be univocal, here is a photo about one of my drivers (or diaphragm?):

You're gonna have to find somwhere else to host those images. They won't even load for me.

They don't sound bad that's for sure but I've really got no grounds to make comments of them compared to other models, that's why I'm worried. I can't just trust my ears this time.
I can. I had the 580s for 3 or 4 years. These 'false' 650s sound NOTHING alike.

I'll try to take a picture...

No HD580 imprint on my HD650 drivers.
Both drivers are stamped with a production date.
08.11.06
The HD650 was purchased in April this year.
Apparently the headphones were lying around in the store for a few months.

Big old pictures.

No date on mine, just 'hd 580 and Makro'...





One thing though. Everywhere you look on Sennheiser.com, their cans are 'HD' not 'hd'...



edit - If they're matched pairs theres not a guy on the production line fitting drivers with a box to randomly choose from.

OFFICIAL RESPONSE FROM SENNHEISER

The HD580 and HD650 do not use the same drivers. Period.

Now lets get back to speculating the HD750 ok?

Oh, sure, that's just what you want us to think!

Also, don't you mean the HD800?

Sure, they're not supposed to, but that wouldn't explain away an erroneous batch.

The question everyone wants answered is: 'Is it okay to have hd 580 stamped on HD 650 drivers?'

Exactly.

I apologize in advance but that was an utterly useless response from the Senn rep.

If I were one of the people with 'hd580' stamped on my drivers, I would be returning them immediately.

At The Very Least...

At the very least... I'd find a place to A/B my phones against HD580/600's to see if my phones (presumably HD650's) sound noticeably different (more bass, more weight, smoother highs, darker, etc.).

There is a very noticeable difference - if you find there is none, or very slight difference - then you should return them to the vendor, or Sennheiser.

But... I'd check them out, first.

As far as I can tell, printing under discussion is on the diaphragm.
