HiFiMAN HM650 Portable Music Player Impressions and Appreciation Thread

post #1 of 231
Thread Starter 

HIFIMAN announced a new DAP HM650 on June 8, 2014. Looks like it's HIFIMAN's answer to the X5 and DX90.

 

HM650 with the new UI

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 96

 

It features the same stepped attenuator found on its bigger brothers.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 96

 

Specs are almost the same as the HM802's while the color scheme and the controls are different. Also the HM650 doesn't accept digital input and hence no DAC functionality.

 

DAC chip: WM8740 x 2

S/N: 106 +/- 4dB

Weight: 250g

Dimension: 117x72x29mm (same as HM901)

LPF: OPA627x2

Frequency Response: 20Hz-20kHz

Distortion: 0.008% (LO)

Battery life: 9 hours

Format supported: Same as 802 except DSD

 

The HM650 can make use of 802/901's accessories such as battery, amp cards, dock etc.

 

Available at Head-Direct at $449: https://www.head-direct.com/Products/?act=detail&id=226

End of the road for the 601/602/603

What a great product line it was, my 601 is still working perfectly and when matched with a good amp

can give many a new super dap a run for it's money.

Would be interesting if the 650 continued to use the same Philips DAC chips!

I think it can make use of the same accessories as the 901/802 (amp cards/dock/battery etc)

Yeah I guess it will be warm, judging from the sound signatures of the 802 and the 901.

Interested to see their take on Bluetooth headphones.
Bluetooth is getting better and better. Maybe one day we will see quality sound from a pair... Maybe this pair...
Probably not but I am yet to find a pair of hifimam ear/headphones I didn't like something about smily_headphones1.gif

i am so so eager to know more about the HM650 plz provide more info, and when will it be released and what price

post #14 of 231
Thread Starter 

Launch date in China should be some time in July.

Price is TBD but should be less than RMB3000 (USD $480).

 

That's all I know for now!

post #15 of 231

Judging from what I have read so far, it would seems HM650 is HM802 without the scroll wheel and stepped attenuator. If it indeed is keeping the same sound, then the sub$500 price will be quite a bargain..

 

Really dig the white color myself.
