Oh wait, we're talking about high fidelity here.

 

Very best,

 

Of course, I'm assuming everyone wants properly damped bass here lol, it's a matter of taste at the end of the day.

e9 powers them to insane levels even with low gain... and according to some reviews it is not that bad when comparing to other good quality headphones that e9 makes a mess of sound quality wise... it will not be bad but the headphones can do a lot better....

Used the E7 / E9 combo with the 650's for a few months.  It sounds just fine, you shouldn't have any problems.  The HD650 was a significant upgrade over the Shure 840's, both being run from the E7 / E9, if that gives you any indication or what to expect.

 

That being said, I really don't use the E7 / E9 anymore since upgrading, but that was kind of the point.  If you decide later to upgrade then its a fairly low cost temporary solution that does just fine.
