Sennheisers fall from grace.

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
With the 650/600 being discontinued and excluding the HD800 Sennheiser only have a few sets of cans that are any good imo.
The HD25-1, HD598 are good but the 4 series are underpowered and overall disappointing. The 2 series are ok, I had the 228 / 238 and creating a portable can that can't be driven by an mp3 player is not clever (and they sound meh- the vjays piss on them).
I really hope they step up, their IE8 is great but I hear that's soon to be discontinued as well.

Hmmm it's still kind of early to start making conclusions...

 

Besides, the 448 is in headroom's top 10.

I don't think the HD650s (at the very least) have been reported to be discontinued anywhere.

They are NOT being discontinued.  People have already asked Sennheiser directly and they have stated there are absolutely no plans to discontinue the HD600 and HD650 at this time.  They may have newer versions coming out, but the 600 and 650 aren't going anywhere.

This is a completely superfluous thread.

Where are you hearing these rumors???

If anyone has fallen from grace, it's akg. They are the only big box brand that doesn't have a "true" flagship. Remember the days of k240 600ohm models, k400/401/501/601s, k1000. Now they have the Q701. Really? I mean really?

OP, Where are you getting this info from?

 

The Sennheisser HD600/650 are still very popular and well regarded choices in the "mid to high-end" headphone market. I very much doubt they will be discontinuing these models.

The HD6x0 ARE being discontinued. Luckily, Skullcandy is planning a replacement with Sennheiser's blessing.

 

A variety of colors has been rumored.

What makes something a flagship?

 

When the HD650 was Sennheiser's flagship and the DT880 was beyerdynamic's flagship - AKG had a flagship - the K70*.

 

 

Then Sennheiser, beyer, Grado and Ultrasone decide to start charging £1k for dynamic headphone now all AKG has is some mid-priced effort... for selling dynamic headphones at the price they are worth...

 

 

If you don't like the K70*, that's your personal judgement. Many don't like the HD800, or the ED10, or the PS1000 as well - but why isn't the K70* AKG's "flagship"? 

 

Only in the world of head-fi does the customer crawl on their knees to the manufacturers begging to be ripped off...

Interesting. Not sure how credible that page is though. It also says that the 650 is manufactured by Apple.
