This shows my problem with these headphones. There is almost a difference of 20dB in the mids from the highest to the lowest point. The type of EQ/correctional curve applied to the measurement doesn't matter as it's a relative comparison withhin. 20dB of a difference in the mids by itself is already horrible, but the mids fall of in the MOST IMPORTANT area for the human hearing and voice , at 1-2khz. This does not make any sense at all. You could try to argue that it's a headphone made for loud listening so they don't emphasise this sensitive area... but as you can also see the treble will go off on you far far before you reach any peaks in the vocal area
So while the HP200 has a difference 20dB in the mids, the HD650 has a difference of 7dB from the same area (200hz-2khz) mostly due to it's boosted bass. Overall the HD650 has much more linear mids:
These 2 headphones don't have much in common.
