I prefer the HD650 headband because of the  brilliant indentation that takes the pressure off the top of my skull:

For some reason I'm very sensitive there and can't wear headphones for more than an hour if they put any pressure on the top of my dome.

I gotta agree with you, not that I can't wear them but this design is definitely one of the most comfortable one ever invented.

However, the sound signature of HD6xx and the Senns phones in general does not appeal to me.

 

Despite T1 costing a little more than twice the HD650 I closed my eyes and surrendered my credit card to the checkout counter.

 

I went for the best for my taste but never cried. Not even once lol :beyersmile:

 

Sure you didn't. ;)

 

I guess in the end, it really just comes down to preference:)

I'm looking for a portable amp (preferably with a bass boost although not necessary) that compliments my Apex Glacier (warm with weighty lows and a slightly dark sound signature). Any suggestions please? smily_headphones1.gif

Neutrality is not what I'm looking for this time, got that in bucketloads with the Apex Glacier :)

Will be using it with the DX50 so they're incompatible :(

Not many comes to my mind but FiiO E12 or E12 DIY Edition. Vanilla E12 has bass boost function if I remember correctly.

 

Or maybe ifi iCan? ClieOS really likes ifi line up.

You must have a bump on your head exactly where the dent is. :D

How about a FiiO E12. It's inexpensive, has great battery life and has very good driving power, It can drive my HD600's and HE-500's to loud levels. IMO, the bass boost switch works rather nicely with neutral cans.

The bass boost on the plain product is nice to have. Rolling opamps is overrated since the distortion is already low and the negative feedback in the circuit takes it even lower, way below a human's ability to perceive it. IMO, get the stock product and put your energy into listening to music.
