    Sennheiser Return Policy Help

    Does anyone know how Sennheiser is with returns? They don't have much info on their website: "What is your refund policy? The Sennheiser store by Digital River offers a 30-day money back guarantee." This led me to believe it would be fine. However, when I put in the return request, I got this...

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    That’s a good point. It’s hard to say; I don’t have another high end dac/amp for comparison.

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    It might just be personal preference, or maybe it’s the difference between tube and solid state like others have speculated. I have both coming out of the HDV 820, and I still prefer the 660S.

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    I ended up getting the 660S. I have to say, I am very impressed. I’ve been listening out of my 650s for about a decade, and the 660S takes everything I love about the 650, and improves on what I didn’t like. The timbre from the 650 is retained quite while, but especially with the silver dragon...

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    I actually don't have the 660s yet. Whether or not it would sound good with the Silver Dragon is just part of my pro/con list for if I should get it. Always a pro when expensive after-market upgrades work well for multiple cans :) If I do end up getting them, I'll certainly post my impressions...

    Sennheiser HD660S... Finally a successor for the HD650?

    Is anyone using these with an aftermarket cable? If so, what do you notice? Do cables that work well for the 650 work well for the 660s? I already have a Silver Dragon, and I’m wondering if it would work with the slightly different sound or if it’d make the 660s too sharp.

    Trouble removing stock cable from Sennheiser HD650. Please help <3

    Pulled with all of my might with a good set of pliers using both hands and legs while my wife was holding onto the cup with both hands while sitting in a chair. I was literally almost lifting her out of the chair with the amount of force I was applying... This is crazy. I feel like I have to be...

    Trouble removing stock cable from Sennheiser HD650. Please help <3

    From what I've read, it seems like the amount of trouble people have had varies significantly; maybe subtle differences in manufacturing? And I really do wonder if having them in place for over a decade has cause some sort of extra stickiness. I'll go buy a decent pair of pliers and see if it...

    I know this topic has been posted about several times over the years, but I haven’t been able to find success given any of the previous recommendations I’ve read. I’m really hoping someone can help or has a new suggestion. Here’s what I’ve tried so far that hasn’t worked: 1. Just pulling...
