For Sale: Sennheiser HD650 - New leather pads and head-band (silk screens)

For Sale:
Sennheiser HD650 - New leather pads and head-band (silk screens)

Will Ship To: Anywhere

I am selling my entire headphone collection since I rarely use them and someone else could enjoy listening to them. The headphones were kept in a closed space, free of dust, smoke and pets.

FOR SALE

Model – Sennheiser HD650 (older silk screen version)

Modifications:

- Foam removed from back of drivers (resulting in a more open sound)
- Brand new Sennheiser HE60 leather Ear Pads
- Brand new Sennheiser HD650 Head Pad
- Application of nail-polish to the edge of Headband (solves paint chipping problem)

The headphones are very comfortable and will last you a long time. Sound quality is something very subjective; however, I find that the larger ear-pads add a greater sense of space to music and are more comfortable to wear over the original pads.


Shipping and PayPal costs are not included.

Yup, they fit exactly.  I used the original 650 'plastic pieces' which snap the pad to the ear-cup.

 

There is no problem with them coming off or with comfort.   They are a bit deeper and wider on the inside, so perhaps there is some sonic difference over the original pads.

are those pads from an HE 60?

Yes, they are new HE60 pads that I bought from a Sennheiser parts supply site, along with the headband.  The pads were 55 GBP - $70 and were in a sealed package.  I used the original plastic pieces to attach them to the baffles, so they are firmly clipped in.  

 

Some have asked if the Sound is changed.  The answer is Yes, but not in a major way, only because there is a bit more distance from the drivers.  I would describe it as more airy, which for me is a good thing because I found the 650s too dark(?).  They are closer to the HD600's in terms of highs, yet with the deeper bass preserved.  

 

I like them, but I've moved to Bayerdynamic as my main headphones.

Since these were on sale recently from Sennheiser directly for $271, what is the best price you can offer? I can do local pickup.
