I am beginning to love them more and more. It sounds smooth, sweet, and never annoying. They sound neither dark nor dull. I used to own 3 headphones and if i can sell off the rs1, hd600 will be the only can I own.

Always nice to see someone who found his headphone, especially the one only. I am in the same boat, but a bit opposite, well, kind off...

I never tried HD600, only HD650. What is the biggest difference. Just to lazy to search, sorry...

I always hear that the 650 is basically the same, just a bit darker.

Different but not totally opposite. The funny thing is I prefer k701 to hd650 but prefer hd600 to all of them. It might be at that time the hd650 was with the stock cable.

I did compare hd600 to hd650, ad2000 and dt880 and turned out to be my favourite out of them. So i bought them to be a complement but unexpectedly it has overthrown all of my other headphones.

I am interested to know this as well. I just recently got a pair of HD650's and i am loving them, but it seems so many think the HD600's are better?

No, a small number of people that just happen to post in groups.

from what i know

HD600 is more neutral and little snappy..

HD650 has a slight hump in the bass and is more fluid.


for me i like snap in the music transition..whereas some prefer fluid like music.

I have a Cardas on my HD-600, too. It is a special headphone - I spent quite a bit of time listening to it last night.

There isn't a huge difference between the HD-600 and the HD-650. The HD-600 is more neutral and almost a touch bright. The HD-650 is a little darker, smoother and groovier. What I mean by "dark" is like getting a 20% tint in a pair of glasses, as opposed to the clarity of the HD-600. Everything is in proportion to everything else, it's just that everything is equally turned down a notch. They're exceptionally smooth with 2A3 tubes - that kept me up to almost 3AM this morning!
