Got this amp a couple of weeks ago and realized that I need a new pair of headphones. Tried the amp with my existing HP890, but compared to my SPFI5:s there was alot missing. But getting a "perfect seal" with these SPFI5 really kills me so I want some nice sound without plugging somethuing into my brain =)

So, is the Headsix amp enough for HD650?
Or is any other headphone in that range recommended? (preferable cheaper)

Thanks

In my humble opinion a Headsix is nowhere near powerful enough to drive a pair of HD650's.

The Headsix is afteral a portable headphone amp and the HD650's are certainly not designed as a portable headphone.

I have a set of HD580s and I think that my headsix sufficiently drives them

The HD580s are rated at 300ohms.

My portable-amp Move, from which the Headsix is based on, drives the HD-650 decently enough. My home-amp Solo drives the phones even better. If you don't really need the portability, you can get better results from a home/desktop amp, rather than the Headsix or any other portable amps, for the HD-650.

Cheers!
