    They are warm enough, never got goosebumps so far, lol. They run fine on the E12A the HD650 already did.

    Lol. Good to know. The e12 from what i know is a Tony bit more powerfull than the 12a so it should do just fine.

    I dont know if you replied this but the hd650s you havê are the silver drivers ones or are they a older version?

    Now that you had some days to compare both, do you think it is still worth buying the hd650 instead of the 660 if they are.... Lets say for example 100 euros cheaper?

    Now switching between both do you feel the hd650 sounding a bit muffled or something lile that? The increase in resolution and overall sound quality on the hd660 is easily noticeable when comparing both?

    I think you're right on that point -- I have yet to buy a pair of headphones that cost as much as the HD 700 did originally, but when the price was down to $500, I jumped, and while I will not sell my HD 600 (since they're such different headphones sonically), I enjoy the unique sound of the HD 700, and at $500 or less, I think it's worth the price.

    I doubt they will discontinue any of the HD 600, HD 650, or HD 700, although if any were to be discontinued, I'd bet on the HD 700, but I'd bet at the price they're selling for now, they still sell enough to justify production.

    It doesn't bother me a lot, but I've noticed that creepy looking guy lately all over Head Fi in the Sennheiser ads, and mostly it... confuses me. :sweat_smile:

    That ad is German style... If you knew German culture (tv shows, films etc.), you wouldn't be surprised or annoyed.

    The video is fine. Music is about the heart, body and soul not just the ears.

    I will no doubt be in trouble but maybe it wasn't aimed at an American audience :wink:

    Maybe an endorsement from an NFL 'star' or a rapper would be more successful ?!??

    PS I agree it does sound great. Through HD600 in my case

    My HD650 have silver baffle material. I would not buy the HD650 if I can have the HD660S. I spend a good amount of money into sound, to me the price of the HD660S is ok. It is worth it now.

    There have been several questions about the HD 660 S pads, such as this one:
    To help, here have been some helpful responses from the community:
    Indeed, the pad covers and inner material are the same, however the shape is different. Another way to express this, is the HD 650 has “donut” shaped round pads, compared to the more cup-shaped pads on the HD 660 S. The difference is visually small, but it was designed to feel more roomy and pleasant.

    Edit: the replacement pads for the HD 660 S and HD 650, HD 600 headphones all have the same part number going forward.

    I don't see what the big deal was about the video. Seems like an average commercial to me.
