Sennheiser HD650 vs AKG K702 65th or Hifiman He500 ?

post #1 of 172
Thread Starter 

I know its up to myself to find what i like.... but i still cant decide what to keep =( its so hard, and i only want 1 headphone.

 

So i have HD650 and K702 65th.

I love both sound, i think its similar except Annies got more space and a better all arounder, better bass ?

I really like the memory foam on annies but it feels kinda hot compare to hd650.

Annies got single cord and i like the cord more :P

Annies are sexy 2 but more bulky

HD650 feels light and perfect comfy

 

arghh dont know what to keeep :P and should i Sell both and go for He500 instead ? How much better is it ?

my mainly music focus is female vocal music :p

Odac + O2 can drive them ?

 

so what should i do ?:P

Well, I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for. You want some person that you don't know on the internet to make a decision with your money? I can understand getting some input on some cans you've never heard before, but you've heard these (with the possible exception of the HE-500). My advice is to just make the choice and not look back, but if you really want my help then sell them both for the HE-500 for no other reason then I think it might be my next set of cans. Actually, as long as I'm making decisions with your money, you should sell both of them and buy me some HE-500s L3000.gif

 

Sorry to give you a hard time. We've all been there, not sure what we should do and afraid we will make the wrong choice. My real advice is to say that of those there is no "right" or perfect decision, but that also means there is no "wrong" decision. Make your choice and carry on with enjoying the music.

aight xD but is it worth the money to buy he500 compare to hd650 and annie? is it a big upgrade? and will he500 be perfect for odac o2?

go with the he500. a much more balanced and revealing headphone. I rarely listen to my hd650's anymore, though I love them.

I have the HE-500 with magni/modi(supposedly similar to O2/ODAC), I don't think its that spectacular for female vocals. I notice the anime avatar, japanese vocals I presume?

Because the OP really needs more options and choices

Because OP wants really good vocals, OP doesn't have to take my suggestion anyway, pretty sure OP is grown enough to know that

Its not sarcasm. HE-500 needs a ton of current, the O2 can't really supply that much. Fang says the HE-500 needs 1.5W or something like that. O2 can't supply.

Not sarcasm. Using an O2 for these cans is a real fail.
