post #16 of 23

I would love to try one, but that size kills me, I might as well carry a Discman.

warmer, thats easy, it the 650.  comparativly the 650 is warm and smooth, the Studio is much cooler, dryer, crisper.

 

soundstage, well the 650 is the more smooth, intimate so in scale id maybe give it to the Studio, neither is really "better" though just different.

 

Seperation, the 650 is good but its less explicit about things, its sound sig is the more mellow whereas the Studio is the more transparent and explecit so has more clean intrument seperation.

 

 

still overall both are excellent so its not really a  case of one being "better" than the other.  they are just differently flavoured.

Can anyone tell the sound signature comparison between HiFiMAN HM-650 vs HiFiMAN HM-802 ?
They are both have Dual-Wolfson WM8740 DACs.
I'm interested to know about their detail, separation, soundstage.

Thank you for the fine review mark2410, it was both enjoyable to read and informative. Looking forward to receiving my HM-802 even more now. After 2+ years of almost daily use/abuse my HM-601 finally stopped working i figured the HM-802 might give me some of the magic the HM-601 gave me perhaps even a little bit more.

Nice review on the HM-650. Have you ever tried a portable balanced player? I have the Hifiman RE-600 earphone and was thinking of getting a balanced player.

I'm using it with discrete card v1.2.

That sounds really wonderful as much as can comparable to mojo.

 

Actually i bought this one after reading this review.

And i can tell that i totally agree with mark2410's very objective review
