I'm looking to expand my headphone collection. I currently own a pair of 600-ohm DT880's and I've been eyeing the HD650. I've been poking around and trying to get some insight into how the two match up. Some of the posts I've read suggest that they're very similar in signature, with the DT880's having a very moderately higher emphasis on the highs and the HD650 having a bit more of an emphasis on the lows. Others suggest that the difference is night-and-day. The data on their frequency response curves from headroom looks somewhat similar, but it's hardly conclusive. So is the difference between the two truly significant, or are they both really pretty similar? Is it truly worthwhile owning both?
I'm currently listening through a Cmoy I built in November, but I just purchased the iBasso DB1 and PB1 combo and I'll probably be listening through them when they arrive. I have a special place in my heart for indie rock (The National, for example) and soundtracks, but I also listen to some electronica and new-agey stuff (think Imogen Heap and Enya), some acoustic guitar (Jesse Cook) and sprinkle in a little country, metal, and pop once in a while.
Also, hi everyone. First post. Good to be here.
