    I'm very concerned about my HD650

    I only had them for a year or less, and never had a problem with them.

    I have a PS3 60 gig that I use as a Bluray player. Like it a lot.

    I'm still hanging on to my Nintendo 64, arguably the best cartridge based system ever... with Goldeneye and Zelda Ocarina of Time.

    The Beyerdynamic DT880 Discussion thread

    Quote: I sold my HD650 to get the 600 ohm Beyers. I feel they sound quite different. The Beyers have a smoother and better defined top end. The also sound great with a tube amp. I found the HD650 to sound better with a Burson SS amp that I tried...

    Worst headphones you ever heard?

    An old pair of Koss headphones that I bought 25 years ago. Auditioning them was impossible...and breaking the clamshell ( the fact that they were in a clamshell  should have been warning enough ) open made it impossible to return. I forget the model number...

    Bored of my HD-595s - looking for an upgrade

    I found that the DT 880 600 ohm weren't much harder to drive than the 250 ohm version. I suspect the same is true of the Dt 990. these phones really benefit from a strong tube amp IMO.

    Headphone suggestions for classical music fans? ( under $500)

    Quote: I thought the HD 650 sounded a lot more balanced with the HA 160 than with my tube amp. The DT 880 600 ohm sound quite balanced to me with my tube amp. I agree though...the 702 sounded pretty great with the HA 160 as well. All are fine headphones for the moolah.

    Headphone suggestions for classical music fans? ( under $500)

    I like the DT 880 600 ohm with classical... and other genres as well.

    Down to 5 choices, help me decide!

    You will most certainly like them. I really liked them when I had them.

    The Beyerdynamic DT880 Discussion thread

    So impressed with these headphones...for $300 they are an excellent buy. I will one day get the T1s, but until I do, these will do very nicely.
