I maybe understand you, it's probably similar things I experienced with for example Sony XB800/900. I can't either describe it better than you other than the quality of it was bad. It also has very punchy bass (which isn't the thing to blame as Q40 and Pro900 also has punchy bass for example but has great bass quality) but due to the bad quality in bass in particular for the Sonys, I hated them. To a lesser extent I could also speak of V-Moda LP2.

The fact that you like the hd650 that much makes me think you will LOVE the hd8. Even though it is closed and not open like the 650, everything else about it sounds like the 650, but better. This has to be a fast headphone, obviously for djing purposes.

What do you guys think, are the leather cushion in headband replaceable? There's some clip-thingies in the pictures that might suggest that.

Weren't you the guy that said HD8 had sparkly highs? :P I wouldn't call HD650's highs as sparkly. It's slightly relaxed.

Saying HD650's highs are slightly relaxed is like saying winter is slightly cold in Antarctica :bigsmile_face:

I'm sure I said that, however, I am sensitive to sibilance, and the HD8s don't bother me ONE bit. I can't turn these babies up without a problem. HD8s are an easier drive than the 650, closed and portable. But 650 is still a great headphone. I kept the 600 because it has a very pleasurable sound to it. It is one of the headphones I bought without wanting an exaggerated bass response. HD8's are getting the most use out of all the over-ears right now. Using the velours makes the headphones very comfy and fun to use. I've burned them in for a few weeks now, and it seems like a lot of the response from the bass and highs have settled in even further.

I think I will put the pros up for sale then. The price on them is high enough that I can always buy the pros again later.

I've been slightly interested in those Yamaha headphones you got for sale since they are so cheap, I'm just scared it will not be able to satisfy the basshead in me (I would ofc use the digiZoid ZO amp to boost the bass). ^^ They are one of the few very great candidates for "^--" shape signature so, in this case the bass is slightly on the lower-side of the spectrum to what I'd ideally look for but it's still boosted a bit according to measurements though.

At least the Yamaha are bassier than the Focal Spirit Pros right (which I've also looked at with interest due to its mids & highs quality but unsure again if the bass will be able to satisfy me)?

easily more bassy. The bass of the yamaha satisfys the basshead in me on bassy songs especially with the alpha pads. but I figure if i combine the bass and over ear comfort of the yamaha with the portability of the pro it would look something like the hd 8 dj.

I don't think it's a basshead hp though all the way
