Don't mind him.

 

I would suggest the HE-400's. They are also only $300. I doubt you can find something better anywhere close to that right now.

I agree with the Hifiman HE-400.  The planars work really well with an amp/dac and should definitely bring out the upbeat music.

The HE-400 is 300$, but would it be better if I just saved up alittle more and get the HE-500 at 530$ from a friend?

I also purchased the DT 880 Premiums 250OHMS....was planning on returning them because read some reviews saying that they were near the same signature as the HD 650s, and I want something different.

I wouldn't say the 880's are the same signature as the 650's. I felt the 880's were actually a little bright for my tastes.

 

Keep in mind the HE-500's are only $600 right now, talk your friend down a bit if you can.

 

Or, what you can do, if you can wait, Hifiman's new models are coming out April-ish, you might want to wait to see what they sound like (they certainly are a lot lighter).

I also listen kpop and I don't find nothing better than W1000X so far :)

Aren't the W1000x very similar to the HD 650. Also if I do upgrade to the HE-500, would there be a point in having the HD 650 still?

W1000X have more mid bass and female vocals sound great, better than on HD650. If you buy HE-500 I don't think is a reason to keep HD650.
