Hmmm wouldnt reccomend the HD600/650 for those genres... they are too laid back / slow / boring and have no sub bass... I sold the HD650 for this exact reason... Good for slow music, films etc. Not good for electronic music.

Interesting take. I like them both for all types of electronic music when amped at home. Never tried them on the go.

The Denon's look GIANT. Like, too big to wear. :S

The 650s might actually be pretty good for Liquid DnB. I haven't personally heard them myself but from what I've read they're a similar sound profile to the Audeze line, and they are magnificent with Liquid DnB.

Seriously don't buy the sennheiser HD600 or HD650 for DnB or electronic music... They are great headphones... But not at all good for these types of genres and you can get much better headphones for those genres... Trust me I have owned both and they are great for films, vocals, acoustic music, gaming, classical but they are NOT good for electronic music.

 

The LCD2 are probably great for electronic and DnB etc. but the HD600/HD650 are nothing like the LCD2 when it comes to sub bass and speed.

I guess I just don't find Liquid DnB to really be that fast of music. All of my LDnB is really laid back, as I said I have no experience with the HD650 though - your word is better than mine here.

You seem to be forgetting that this according to your ears. To rule out anything with above certainty would take that everyone who has listened to those headphones agrees on them being unsuitable for electronic music. I do see that there could very well be much better headphones for the OP's choice of music.

Hmm well not really... The HD600/650 are objectively not good for those genres, due to the lack of sub bass and the slow, laid back sound.... They are great headphones, just not really for those genres.

Well, I haven't heard any other phones than Senns so I can imagine I would classify them as inferior as soon as I heard some others. You suggest the D600. How are they different you'd say? At OP, are you looking for on the go or at home?
