well hear they cost $100 more retail so any extra value i can squeez out of them is a bonus

IF anyone is interested in buying a used HD558 for ~$75-$99, check eBay on 7/10-7/17. Selling my pair because I'm upgrading to HD650's.

why not sell them on here?  ebay will take 10% flat and paypal will take another 5% or so.

Yes I know but I am under 18, parents will not allow me to do so, eBay is the safest bet.

You could put a flyer up on a bulletin board if your school has one.  Might be worth a shot

It's fine. I'm pretty sure I can sell it on eBay, I just posted on here if anyone was interested in buying a used pair from a head-fier.

Fair enough.  But, just posting look at ebay between these dates a week or so away isn't very effective.  At the least you should mention your ebay username

They can PM me if interested. Don't want to spam this thread.

I sold my 558s when I got my 598s and 600s, and I regret it to this day. They sound rich and warm and are much easier to drive than the 650s

Q701's are said to be harder to drive than 650's so, I have too many headphones at this point too. If I really wanted to I could buy it back but I am waiting a week after I get 650s before putting my 558's on sale.

Some HD 650 vs 558 comparison/impressions here,

Compared to the HD558, the vocals were VERY airy, on HD650s, it just sounds more real.
Despite people saying the HD650 are darker, I don't think so. The 558's are much darker. Highs are much more easy to hear on 650's.

Much better instrument separation, accurate, and not harsh. They make recordings sound so much better than they actually are, more than the 558's. Much tighter bass.

Drums, cymbals are really my favorite part of this headphone. Much livelier.

I am currently using my Reciever to power these but my Xonar DG drives them to good volumes fine.
Would I pay $499 MSRP? I don't think so.. but if you put into the equation:

Good comfort, clamp is a little tight but I believe this will ease over time
Makes crappy recordings even more listenable, compared to 558's. They are slowly growing on me every minute.
post #705 of 768
that is good to hear. I am glad you like the 650.Since they cost so much more than the 558, it would have been a letdown if there was not that much difference.

It would be interesting if you could someday compare a 600 and 650 back to back and give us your thoughts.
