For my classical music taste:

 

Very rich sound (especially bass, but still overall)

 

NO dry sound (live acoustic)

 

Between bright and dark (but more towards to dark)

 

 

 

I really love listening to choir (Russian orthodox, etc) a lot..

 

Please help.

 

For classical music, the HD600

The HD800 is the best headphones for classical and worth the x3 $$, IMO.

 

IMO, the HD650s aren't airy enough for classical music, though I prefer the HD650's sound signature in-overall over the HD600's.

For me, the tonal accuracy. It's a lot closer to neutral, and the extra treble presence makes it feel more open, even though soundstaging capabilities are virtually the same. 

 

But ultimately, it's what your preference is. For people who like the HD650 sound, the HD650 is preferable for any genre. 'Very Rich' does sound more HD650, too.

To me the HD650's soundstage is wider than the HD600.

buy the hd650 and add a silverplatedcopper cable...= HD625  :P. 

And the hd600 is buried forever.

So I should add the HD625 to my signature, though I use a pure-silver cable.  :D

So the final score is:

 

HD600: 72

HD650: 66

Undecided: 18

 

Amongst people with a clear preference HD600 does significantly better than the HD650:

 

HD600: 38

HD650: 27

 

So:

 

HD600 IS THE CHAMPION!

Sore loser. Now go back and listen to your HD650's and be glad you have them.:D Whew, that was a close call.

post #74 of 76

So which one is for me?I mostly listened to old Rock,R&B and classical.

Any suggestions are welcome,THANK YOU! 

I will be driving this headphone with my TEAC UD H01 and Bottlehead CRACK.

I already have the hd650 so it wouldn't make sense to have the hd600 as well. Likewise, I can't see myself getting a hd650 if I already had the hd600.

This is how I see these two...just like identical twins, but you can always tell them apart...but they are also identical.
