Its not a question of which is better, but which is more preferable. I do find the Annie's mids to be more integrated, while the HD650 enhances it in special, HD650 way.

 

I am mostly in agreement here and glad that some of my observations are similar to others. In terms of overall impression, I feel like K702-65 compares more closely to the HD650 than the Q701 because to me, the annies seems to have smoothed out that 2K spike that's evident in the K702/Q series. Personally, I prefer a mild 2K bump. What is everyone's thought on the high end of the annies??  Do you think the 2k bump is still there? I can't scientifically measure it other than hearing subtle differences in vocals.

After Mad Lust's love gushing post of these headphones I've been watching the price. Just snagged these on Amazon for 409 shipped. Wasn't fulfilled thru Amazon so dunno how things will be if there's any problems but the seller has good reviews.

Was hoping for something similar to the He-400 but lighter, starting to get neck pains after long listens. Hopefully these will kick butt. Always loved the AKG look but was scared of the lack of bass of some of the other models.

#127. Keep posting the serials as you get your cans (especially if there is only 3000 units to be released).

Chico will have 3000. XD

Or maybe 2900 and change, as I have a feeling AKG will keep the last few for employees, etc.

It's going to be a close race.  First to either ~$400 for me or 3000 for AKG.

 

I hope I win biggrin.gif
