post #1 of 10

I listen to drum n bass,Dubstep and techno. I don't have a proper soundcard in my laptop, so I would listen on my iPod touch with a fiio E11 headphone amp. Thx in advance.

The Denon.

HD650 need too much juice to sound to their full potential.


Check out the reviews on Headphonia....very detailed and explains the ups and downs of that headphone.

The Denon works just fine on portable players with minimal amplification, and the bass is more entertaining than the HD650. Overall detail level is similar.

I'd take the HD650 most times, BUT you need a decent amplifier for it. So in this case, I'd go with the Denon.

I like HD600 much, much more than D5000/D7000 (haven't heard HD650, sorry).  But you might prefer the Denons if you want strong bass & good low-amplification performance.  And don't mind the doughnut hole that are the mids.

If you are coonsidering the Denon 5000, check out http://www.lawtonaudio.com/page8.html for 5000 cusonization and leather ear pads. The sound is said to be even better.

For modern or electronics music, definitely the denon. It's a lot more lively and fun with a low impedance and nice bass extension. I would suggest you do the markl mod and recable it with mogami, it will be one of the best closed headphone. The sennheiser on the other hand needs a fairly powerful amp and it have a neural, mid centric sound with a huge sound stage. For me I tend to grab the denon more due to the type of music I listen to.
