HD650, best open back headphones I've ever heard.

ATH-A950LTD, haven't listened to them for quite some time as they were put into storage. Almost forgot how good they sound.

what's the difference between the 650 & 600?? Thank you :-)

I only know 650 sound so I cannot compare.  All I can say is that people think the highs on the HD650 is rolled off compared to the 600, but to me it's not really rolled off.  I can hear much more details than any other low end headphones that I have.  Most will say that HD600 has more treble, but based on my listening experience, just because headphone have more treble doesn't make it necessarily detailed headphones.  Take my FitEar ToGo for example, it doesn't have sharp treble, but you hear more details than any other iems.  It's such a stable iem, everything is tight, no bloats.

 

You need to do some research on which amp is best for 650, with the right amp, it's a perfect sounding headphone.

Ha, just typing in "650 vs 600" in the search bar will yield PAGES of results answering that very question. Both are very capable and popular cans. Many consider the 650 warm and the 600 more analytical. Owned both at one point and rather than one being better than the other, I considered them different flavors of the same can. If I had to pick one again, I'd go with the 600.

Guys, you want to try them out than read some hearsay about which is analystical or warm, it all comes down to which sounds best to your ears, I will look into 600 someday, but given I was so satisfied with the 650, there was no motivation.  My next stage is STAX Lambda, so I have no interest. 

 

There are lots of components that goes into a headphone setup.  The source, and the amp.  650 is sensitive to what you feed it, it's not as simple as some joe plugging it into some laptop or etc..   If you source it well, it will be very transparent.  I feel HD800 more sensitive to what you source it with.

Recently ordered a pair of Koss Pro DJ 100s off ebay, and they got here today. I owned a pair a few years ago, and I needed a decent pair of headphones because the KSC-75's just weren't cutting it, so I figured I'd grab a pair of these.

 

Forgot how nice their mids were. The last few pairs of headphones I've owned weren't all that special in the mid department, so listening to these is really nice. Still miss my CD900STs, but these will do nicely for now!

The new Sennheiser HD7 DJ's...................

post #1438 of 1583

at this VERY moment.... LCD2 v2's, on the Schiit Lyr, hearing a very nice rendition of Mahler's 4th conducted by H. Von Karajan steering the Berliner Phil, SACD a la Denon.

 

EARLIER today, it was Senn 600's on the Woo Wa-6,(Amperex Bugle Boy GZ34 fat brown base with a set of Sylvania 6ew7s), hearing some very nice fingerstyle guitar of Leo Kottke, and Mike Gordon, and some various cello works performed by Pablo Cassals.  This was on vinyl via the B&O.

oh, BTW...a quickie remark on that 600 vs 650 dealie- I went with the 600s because I like LOTTA classical and acoustic music that wants to have clarity across the range and a more transparency for the mids and highs. After the listen to both, I went with the 600's because the ss was less bass heavy and, PERHAPS, had a bit more luminous highs. Not to say the 650 was MUDDY or anything, but on a flat eq listen, I found the bass trampled the mids and highs a bit much for the classical genre, IMO. That's ultimately what my choice boiled down to, not price, not a single other thing.  If you like a bit more bass...650 is your bet.

I don't know what amp you're using with the HD650, but if you can swing it, you owe it to yourself as a fan to listen to it with the Zana Deux. I eventually sold my HD650 and haven't used my Zana Deux in some time, but rather than selling it I'll be picking up another pair of HD650's. To date that is the most synergistic combination I've heard in this hobby. It's marvelous at showing what detail and finesse the HD650's (silver drivers) are capable of.

As to the thread, currently listening to the HE60. Everything else sits there collecting dust.
