HD650 but with clearer sound ?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

i have the hd650 and ma900.

i really like the sound and female vocal on HD650, but it sounds not so clear compare to Ma900.

 

Wondering if there is any headphones out there with HD650 sound but much clearer ?

 

using Odac built in O2

take away/ or try replacing the foam infront of the drivers with stalkings.

see if that is sufficient for u.

 

or add silver cables.

The HD650 is extremely clear.

 

I think you simply like more treble.

 

And clarity begins with the recording. Not the gear. In other words, get better recorded music. For a good example, look at Black Coffee on HDtracks.com.

 

Very best,

If you want more detailed sound, try DT48 ^^

 

But prepare for a shock.

Sell your old gear and supplement the difference; also second-hand is not bad.

Yes. Buy used and check Amazon Warehouse now and again. Also, there was a retailer with a hyooge discount running on them, but I'm not sure which one.

LCD-2's, but if you're not willing to fork out $1000, I'd say upgrade your source. The HD650 are really clear though, are yours the old black driver version, that could be the reason for the lack of clarity.

 

Edit: nevermind the LCD-2, didn't see you had a budget constraint. Maybe just try the mods mentioned above.

Seriously, the only difference is that you are perceiving higher treble volume as more clear.

 

The HD650 is absolutely clear.

 

It's not clarity difference that you're noticing.

 

You're simply noticing that the HD650 has rolled off dark treble.

 

Two very different things.

 

Very best,
