I would definitely not recommend to sell HD650 to get HD700, I mean HD650 that's just lovely headphone, HD700 is very different in my opinion. I'am buying HD650 again soon, really want to have these two at home.

 

+1 

 

IMO, the HD650 would be a very good pair with HD700.

You just need the Lyr again for the HD650. ;)

You're damn right :)

 

That's the plan - Bifrost and Lyr again, also thinking about giving shot to WA6. I traded Lyr for HD700, it was pretty crazy trade.

I suppose I would sell the HE-400 over the HD 650... although, I think they both compliment each other very well. Treble on the HE-400 isn't an issue for me, I think the DV3322 tube amp does a nice job of taming them.

 

I'm also building another Crack/Speedball which I've heard drives the HD 700 just as wonderfully as it does the HD 650.

 

Well, you guys have given me something solid to consider, so thanks!

Then you will sell the HD650 to get T1.

If you really like how laid back HE-400's are than you should think twice about selling them, but other than that I don't think you will miss them if u sell them for HD700.

Hmm, no I don't think so. HD700 is somewhat close to T1 in sound signature and I enjoy HD700 much more, so I guess it's not happening :)

 

Btw, just took off HD700 and put on Koss Porta Pro out of curiosity, feel like going to 1$ unbranded iPhone earbuds when doing fast switch between these two. Whole soundstage collapsed in itself, detail is gone and I feel like hear 30% of the song.

 

Won't do this again because I like Porta Pro's :D

Damn, should get myself second pair :D

I did some EQ testing with Spotify / Equalify and I actually liked +1 db on highs (12, 14, 16 Khz). I have noticed some people complain high trebles with HD700, but I seem to like the opposite. Anybody else out there with this taste?

post #747 of 2476

By high treble people mean 5.5k peak not 12-16k range. Btw when we are talking about EQ this is so far my progress :
 

 

Testing this one today and really like results with most of music I listen to.

 

.... Kind of Grado style EQ :)

Schiit Bifrost Uber -> FiiO E12 (bass boost) -> HD700  = WOW! :L3000:

post #749 of 2476

Been contemplating on a pair, but am worried about the treble.

 

If I found the HE-500 to be a bit too bright, I'm guessing this is a no go?

post #750 of 2476

This is a matter of taste 100%. I for one wish a bit MORE treble into my HD700s. :) The famous 'Senneheiser veil' is also present in HD700 but not nearly as much as in HD650 and HD600. I have all of these three.

 

Give the HD700 a good listening and then judge for yourself!
