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

    I've noticed the HD 660S are interfering with my sleeping pattern. Ever since I've got them, I go to bed at 4 am. :beyersmile: Be warned. These things are very addictive. :astonished: Good Night! :zzz::sleeping::zzz:

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

    Thanks. I have but won't help too much. I installed bigger moisture absorbers. They collect quite a bit of water after a week or two of use. Then I have to empty them. They do a better job but it's costly in the long therm. Also I'm thinking of long periods of storage, like 2-3 years unused...

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

    I keep mine in a home made pouch. Same for the HD 598. I used to have headphones in their original boxes or other closed spaces. If i kept them there for too long they either had a funny fungus smell or the cable and plug was melting. I'm trying to avoid that, but still keep them away from too...

    Yes they are three of them. I believe it was Mike F who had or still has all three of them. I have the new one and it sounds glorious. I doubt they are different sounding though.

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

    Looks like you have an intermediate model. The box and the design is the old one, but the sticker says Made in Romania. The new design is the one shown here by Sennheiser: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/sennheiser-hd660s-finally-a-successor-for-the-hd650.862308/page-304#post-15184355 I had...

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

    Both versions are black. :) The old ones have Made in Ireland written on the inside of the headband. On the new one, Made in Romania, it does not says on the product, only on the bottom of the box. The boxes are different too. The previous model (Ireland) has a black box with blue and...

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

    I just bought them for $350, here in Europe. I think it's a good deal. :)

    No cracking has been reported for over two years now. I think it's safe to buy.

    As long as they work, cable is intact, and nothing seems to move inside, it seems everything is fine. So, don't worry about. :)

    I just found a video on youtube. I don't know if it was posted before, but it seems they are faking the HD 598's aswell. So be carefully when you buy it.

    I thought that's what i did. You don't have to sell them if you don't want to. Keep them! But then, you can still buy another pair to complement the HD 598. It's kind of difficult to have one pair that excels at everything.    I bought the Aurvana for the same reason. I wanted more bass...

    Or you can keep them, and buy a pair of Creative Aurvana's like i did. It's cheaper than an amp, and you will get more bass on the CAL! than an amp will provide to the HD 598.

    I would say to give it a try! I use mine with a speaker amp aswell, and they pair very well. Everything sounds much better with the amp than on PC alone or portable sources (mp3 player, mobile phone, tablet etc.)   The biggest difference is the bass, that has a lot more presence with the amp...

    Sennheiser HD 598 Impressions Thread

    I think it's a good idea to contact Sennheiser. Their customer services proved to be at high level. Some people received even brand new pairs when sending one for repair. Or they received HD 598s when they sent old HD 595s for repair. (as mentioned in reviews on amazon.com)    Now i'm not...

    Quote: I don't own an Apple device, but in my case, the headphones sound better (especially with more bass) on my stereo integrated amplifier than on computer alone (with no amp) or portable devices. If you own it, it's probably a good idea to place the reciever between the laptop and...

    When i watch movies on my tiny HD player, i just plug the HD 598's straight into the LED TV jack. No amps, no anything in between, and it sounds fantastic, with excellent bass.   A while ago i watched movies like Hangover II or Crazy, Stupid, Love. What these two movies have in common is...

    When it's from the same brand, it usually does. Otherwise why would you have flagship models, if the entry levels are just as good?    That doesn't mean the price/performance ratio is better. That's a different story.

    You'll have to use them some time. They're a bit stiff brand new. Allow them some time to adapt to the shape of your head. Say a week. After that, they're like the touch of an angel.

    HD 598 it's a good balanced headphone, you don't get too much of anything. That makes it hardly irritating, and you can listen about any genre on it.   The Sennheiser headphones are some of the most sensitive products on the market, you don't need an amp to make them sing very loud, but the...

    The PANASONIC RP-HTF600-S headphones. More fun than the HD650?

    I am surprised by the number of built quality issues seen here. I have mine since february, and so far i havn't had any sort of problem with them. Works like a charm. Hopefully stays that way, cause i still like them.

    I use mine on my speaker amplifier all the time and works like a charm. You shouldn't be worried by matching with these. They deliver from about any source. The only sources to worry about are the noise induction ones, like cheap pc sound cards. The integrated ones usually have a considerable...
