I got a pair of HD650s today. I've only listened to them for a few minutes but I have a few comments. The Soundstage is wider and deeper than any headphone I've listened to thus far. instruments have seperation and are defined in the soundfield. The problem comes when I listen to more mainstream music. There is a veil, and the sound is laid back, all of it except for the bass. Normally, I wouldn't worry about this except these are the things that some of you have been saying about the HD650s. I'd normally let the headphones burn in for at least 100 hours, but I'm worried that the same sound will be there later. Sure, it's damn great for instrumental recordings and Third World, but it's not nearly as exciting with everything else. Do these headphones change much after burning them in? Will removing the pading over the driver effect the laid back sound much?
