I ordered a pair of the EX650. Out of curiosity how sparkly is super sparkly? I am in love with my Z7 and am hoping these will stop gap me from feeling a stupid urge to buy the Z5. How would you compared these to say the XBA-H3?

I do love the 850 but the 650 has this smooth and warm sound that's a pleasure to listen to. Bass is calmer, treble is more tamed and still carries good vocals.

I highly doubt these could come close to the Z5 but for an affordable set, it's not bad at all. Treble will make the H3 sound dark. Sparkles in the upper registers so it won't affect the vocals so much. Super sparkly as in at higher volumes high hats will give you a shock.

Dang, I was afraid you were going to say that...

The Z7 is brighter than what I remember the H3 being but not by a lot. Guess I will how these work for me LOL.

You are like a one man wrecking crew - now you've got me interested in the 650's lol! :beerchug:

 

Btw, anyone intrigued by the $200 AKG K7XX Massdrop edition? I sure am.

Keep an eye out on the deals thread. They had a HD700 sale at the Seinheiser outlet which sold for $350. Shocking considering the phones were $1000 when they came out. Those AKGs seems to be a great deal going for $200.

Very very VERY interested in the K7XX. Just like what the review said, have owned quite a few K70x models and while I like them enough to buy them, their flaws are also apparent enough that they don't stay around for long.

Now if I can make up my mind on either these or AT's new line... Like that MSR7 or ESW9LTD

I have Q701, which I like (seems to have many detractors), likely the Massdrop version will be pretty close to it, not likely worth it under the circumstances (and will it have dayglo green???????)
post #26785 of 33192

I also kept my Q701 for now so feel no big need to get those 7XX. To be honest I am enjoying the Z7 so much I might just sell the Q701.

Different tuning if Project86's impressions are anything to go by. Also, it's all black. No silly accents and no bumpy headband, which is a plus for me

No green, just the pictured black version. It's based off the k702 anniversary edition with a few tweaks to the SS, the headband and very closely matched drivers.

While a number of the 700 models share a close signature, there are distinct differences.

Value is relative, so it's hard to generalize. A slightly better version of the Annie/K712 sound for $200 brand new seems like a pretty fantastic deal to someone that doesn't already own an AKG in the 700 series.

Those AKG XXX looks promising, need to get them, or not??

My usual Tina Turner paraphrase here, "what's need got to do with it?"......
post #26790 of 33192
Need? No... only "lust" has to do with it... and lack of resistance!
