Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    You should be able to find Venus Audio on the US version of eBay, too.

    You're welcome!
    Can't say for sure. The only cable I've made and used with the HD 650 is an extension made of Mogami W2549, which was completely transparent to my ear. Unfortunately, it's only two conductors plus shield so it won't work as a replacement cable. I'd imagine any well designed cable from a major company will offer a similar transparency, but I can't confirm that from experience.

    Yes! tremendous improvement. Sky is the limit. In fact your only limit is your imagination. When you listen to the new cable try to imagine the electrons moving much faster, like through a wormhole. It helps a lot. Red sleeves for the cabling are a must also. It will also help that you are a beginner at soldering.

    They're a US based company, just change ebay.nl to .com like this

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/6-SENNHEIS...=item1cb78014f5:g:QC0AAOSwkNtaZkLo:rk:16:pf:0

    And yes, the Canare L-4E5C does make a noticable improvement over the stock cable. Cleaner more refined highs, tighter bass, more present vocals, better separation. Soundwise it'll be all you need.

    I wonder if there is an XLR balanced version of that cable?

    ...If only there were a way for you to look at the other items that seller has available...

    :wink:

    Haha fair enough. I’ve never had an eBay account through or PayPal. I’ve always been weiry of them as I’ve heard about PayPal getting hacked or people buying things from eBay and receiving empty boxes.

    As you can see, I have an Ether C/no Flow. The Mr Speakers are good headphones. You might also want to check out the ZMF closed headphones too. I usually upgrade headphones first then amp and later DAC. I would then upgrade to a decent set of interconnects like Wywire blue or Silver. Their Red headphone cable is good value for $$ spent. Norne makes good headphone cables of all kinds and prices. Look on Audiogon and Audio Asylum for used cables. They are cheaper and already broken in.
    If you like Schiit, your 650s will love their Valhalla all tube amp.

    Just my experience:
    Over the years I have bought over 400 items from ebay, paid with Paypal and have only got stiffed once - by a Russian seller who disappeared from ebay.
    I try to buy from sellers who have a better than 99% positive feedback at high volume, if lower I check what they have been given negatives for - sometimes it's just snarky.

    Perhaps I'll consider looking into eBay. I guess I'm just cautious.

    good advice, my ebay practices are very similar, I've had only one issue, from a Chinese buy, but Ebay and PayPal backed me the whole way.

    I have even another layer of protection on our PayPal account. I don't "leave" $ in it, and have our Amex card used with PayPal purchases. They will charge back disputes, though I also have had few problems over the years.

    Enjoying 600 slightly over 650 these days. (On topic compliance)
