Second best headphones I've owned after the HD800. Even then I could understand some enjoying these more depending on source etc.  

Same here. My K712 has gotten very smooth with more use. It used to be a bit edgy in the treble, really calmed down. Also the bass has become tighter over time. I am keeping the K712 for sure, it's the only headphones I have I don't want to let go of. I recently sold the HD 600 as I felt it had no place with the K712 around and well the HD 600 sounds a tad woolly compared to my other headphones. Which I don't find the case with the HD 650 interestingly, the HD 650 sounds clearer to my ears than the HD 600 despite being darker and bassier. The K712 I have noticed is a fickle beast in terms of the system, I don't know why but it's definitely more revealing of system changes as well as cable changes than the HD 600 and HD 650. My Beyers seem to change as much as the K712s though. Didn't realize how much the Beyerpeak tones down on a high end systems with Beyers.

K712 + HD650 are just amazing cans, those two can probably suit anyone's desires.

Agreed. Sadly my HD 650 has a damaged driver, works but causes a channel imbalance. Luckily my DT 150 sounds similar enough to fill in the void of the HD 650.

If I can't get a good answer to that, does anyone know where you can buy replacements?

You can get the Q701 on Ebay from wang_yifei 2009

They are angled (unlike the K712).
They also come with the tiny round foam inside the headphone as well.

i don't see any problem with that amp driving them. Anything from schiit audio also will work & is very affordable

I would spend my money on a pure amp, no DAC. These cans want power to get full dynamics and volume.

HD650 drivers are easy to replace ;)

True, just have to buy one. It's going to be around $80.
