I´m a big fan of Sennheiser headphones, but I´m a bit disappointed with the current models. Every model seems to have some "flaws".
Sound 7/10 - Good neutral sound, but quite grainy, not very hifi :(
Comfort 10/10 - The most comfortable headphone of all time!
Sound 8/10 - Nice smooth sound, not grainy like the HD 600, but the sound is too dark :(
Comfort 7/10 - Quite thin padding and I didn´t like the material, also they move around the ears changing the sound
Sound 7.5/10 - Very weird sounding, I actually thought there was too boomy bass in this one and there´s some treble peaks
:( :( :(
Comfort 8.5/10 - Not as good as HD 600 or 650, but nice. The ear paddings are quite big. The clamping could have been tiny bit tighter, these things fall off easily
Sound 9/10 - Very analytical (love or hate) and clear with a big soundstage, but lacks the bass weight and the treble is boosted a bit too much :(
RS 220 (only heard these few times in stores)
Comfort 8/10 - Not as good as HD 600 or 650, but nice, bit heavier, the headband padding could have been softer
Sound 7.5/10 - Nice balanced sound, close to HD 600 with touch of more bass and treble, but the sound was little grainy as well like the HD 600
* The sound kept cutting out though in both stores I tried them. Also I have read countless reviews and comments from users that the sound cuts out, what a big disappointment!
:( :( :(
So basically I´m hoping for Sennheiser to make a headphone with the HD 650 comfort, but with different sound signature, not like HD 600/700, more like the 800, but with more bass and no boosted treble or treble spikes. And I wouldn´t mind a new electrostatic headphone from Senn. ;)
Rooting for you Sennheiser!
