This is the first reference to what I call "tuning" the headphones, on this thread, and have wondered if I was the only one doing this. When I first put on the headphones, I make sure my ears are comfortable. I then move the headband forward and back on my head, until the ear cups align with my ears better, and the difference is quite noticeable. For example, if I am lying down, the pillow behind my head pushed the HPs forward a bit, and they sounded better. Likewise, when working at the computer, I find pushing the headband further back on my head seems to "open up" the sound.Honestly, the HD 650 sounds it's best when it's positioned a certain way on your head. Not too much down, and not too much up to your ears vertically, and the same thing with the cups horizontally. That's when you'll hear the most details, best timbre and it'll be very smooth.
Position them a bit off, and they'll start to sound more shouting very quickly.
I never posted about it because either I feared someone would say, "Yeah, we all do that" or a hue and cry might arise saying, "that's crazy".
It wasn't something I wanted from either.
I just thought it was my secret.
