However I've read nothing but the highest praise for the HD650, and the biggest seller for me is the sound stage. I'd love to hear that widened soundstage. The 225s are very in-your-face whereas (from what I am told) the HD650s are floaty.. and I'm sure better at most other things considering their price.
I just don't want to end up spending $600 on a pair of PS500s/RS1i and feeling like it wasn't worth it.
