If you like classical music and the 650 is too expensive, you should consider the HD580 or HD600 - these are very worthy headphones. In most rigs, the differences are minor. Some even prefer the 600 over the 650 for classical.

You may also want to look at the AKG K601 or K701.

emm...reasons for me preferring Senn to AKG's that all peoply are saying their sound is warmer and the bass' better.

I've had enough of the e4c when I listen to Mahler...the sound simply disappears in the brass and double bass part.

Same drivers, but better build on the 600. Better damping too, apparently. The screens on the 600 are sturdier, since they're metal and not plastic like the 580.

They're quite warm and bassy, but not as dark as the 650. I found the 600 completely satisfying with large scale classical music. I am sure the 650 is also excellent, but I don't know if the rest of your rig will be revealing enough to justify the price. What source/amp are you using?

EDIT: Look for deals in the For Sale forum here.

Try a meet maybe, or a real life deal, I jsut bought hd-600's with a 650 upgrade cable for $200 (no tax or shipping fees) at the latest meet 2 days ago, they were in amazing condition too.
The other competitiors / alternatives would be the AKG k701 I believe, and the beyer dynamic 880's.

But if it ever comes a time to rma them to senn. Will they honor it, knowing you bought from someone on ebay? I don't think so.

My pair from inetdistributors came with a receipt, and no-where on it did it say they were purchased through Ebay. Warranty should work

so can I say the lowest on CONUS and HK for a first hand HD650 is USD279? I dunno what should be the fair price of a HD600...

what about 2nd hand 650 and 600?
how much should been seen as fair for a very good condition one *ignore shipping here*? I'm choosing...

thx

I would seriously advise against purchasing from the first guy. I contacted him about some HD595's he had for $150. He is local to me, so I asked if we could meet up and save on shipping. He agreed, but I have not heard a word from him since. That was 6 days ago. Cavet Emtor (sp?)
