The Corda Aria is quite nice w/ the 650's and is $450 . Search it up and Im sure you will find some good reviews of the amp.

how about Mikhail's PPX3-SLAM, not only it's good with your HD650. It's also good with almost any other headphones

The graham slee solo seems to be quite a good choice for these cans (listening to this combo as I am writing this

). Imported to the US this is probably a bit over your price range but a used one should fit in your budget. I am quite new to this hobby but judging from the research I did on this issue there seems to be something of a consensus that the slee is a good fit with the 650s.

Jan Meier right now has one as special offer on his homepage, for 240$ (200€) only! If i wouldn't have an Aria already......
But it's one piece only, and it's perhaps already sold. But totaly worth checking it out! (it's under specials, not amplifiers)

Go to PinkFloyd's website and perform his mods (about $50 in parts). Then you will have so much bass/impact you will be amazed.

I've been usinga Graham Slee Solo with my 650's for quite some time now and have no urge to change it. Sennheiser use it to demo in the UK and it works extremely well although you don't see a great deal about it on these forums.

Beautiful, clear, warm sound with plenty of punch.
