Wich one do you recomend, HD600 or HD650? Canadians and headfiers, help! - Page 2

I believe he's mistaken. All 580/600's have the black fabric.

if you are in ottawa and toronto you probably wont have to much trouble finding them, and as for an apple store, toronto has one in the eaton center, downtown toronto.
as for finding the headphones, im not sure of any specific places, maybe welcome to bay bloor radio and the boseĀ® experience, manulife centre, toronto or moog audio
toronto.com - Moog Audio - Shopping, Event Planning, Downtown, Queen West (i think there site is down, cant connect) but here it is http://www.moogaudio.com/

I have both, the 600 and the 650 and I would say the 600s are more forgiving of the source and amp. I get akg like details from the 600s. Both of these cans have the same aftermarket equinox cable and both have the same number of hours and I've thought to myself many times that if I only needed one HP out of all that I own, it would be the 600s, they have all I could want in an hp for the price in spades.

To summarize a long winded recommendation(I deleted a lot)....HD600s.

Good luck!!

Gonna check on mine when I get home. I'm sure, from memory, mine has the white rings.

The do not "all have the black fabric" - I've got them - and they sound better (brighter, clearer), compared to my "old" version of the HD600s x2, which I had previously.

However... even the "old" version of the HD600s sounded better (brighter, clearer) than the "old" version of the HD650s (haven't heard the "new" version of the HD650s).

If I were I'd go with Senn's HD 600.

It's amongst audio industry favorite from my impressions through readings. You also don't need to spend as much on your setup to get a lot out of it like the HD 650 (as has been stated too many times )

edit:
If you ask me, I've never heard through an HD 600, but have so with the HD 650 quite a few times. The best one I heard was on a visit to friend's place. He had his balanced 650's through an RSA B-52 amp If you have ~$7k to spend, then there you have it. That's one way to do it

I would also go with the 600s personally, and put the extra money (assuming there is some) into a quality amp.

There is also an Apple Store at Yorkdale Mall in midtown Toronto.

Suerte.

My current HD600 have the whitish/silver rather than the black silk.............Gradofan is correct, not mistaken.

Gradofan's sonic impressions strike me as correct, as well. The current 600s seem brighter (and better) than the earlier black versions.

I'd go with the HD600. Also it'll be cheaper to order from Amazon.com: Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more

Ok, I guess i'll go for the HD600 then. Now the question is..

Do I buy it from amazon.com (yeah, they ship to spain!)

or

Do I ask my parents to bring it from canada (and i don't think they will guess rite)... nasty

Thanks anyway to all those who have given their opinion here. This community rocks!

Also. Will my amp (Meier Audio Corda Move) be enough to power this?

You're right. I'm an idiot. I thought we were talking about something else completely. I had a look at my own 580's and they do in fact have the white/silver fabric. *puts foot in mouth*

All this talk about the HD600! I just ordered a pair: my third go-around with these fine headphones. To reiterate, I strongly prefer the HD600 to the HD650 (having had three go-arounds--all disappointing--with the latter). : )

My first, official "Head-Fi worthy" system consisted of: SONY DVP-NS775V, Meier Corda HA-2, Cardas re-cabled HD600 and Signal Power ICs and PCs. I can still remember lying down and listening to The Dave Brubeck Quartet until the early hours of morning . . . : )
