Bored of the 650s now, ordered HD800.
Said no mrk ever
I'm confused how I've had HD650's before and sold them. The more I'm listening to them since I got them a few days ago, I'm constantly impressed.
It all just sounds so .... real. Like I'm in a small gig. Superb stuff.
won't be getting rid of mine anytime soon.
Haha, I thought you meant it - your post was at the bottom of my screen and I couldn't see the end of it
If they just did memory foam earpads I'd be all over them, but I can see myself buying new pads every few years seeing as non memory foam ones just go weaker and weaker over time.
mine are only 18 months old and I'm already considering it - though they have had a LOT of head time in that 18 months
A more 'accurate' speaker/headphone will often not be the best thing for enjoying music on.
A gig using really good amps/PA, or using mid range amps/PA? A gig in a very good acoustic environment or a poor one?
Most small gigs I've been to have had in terms of 'hi-fi' sound, terrible sound. An entirely acoustic performance I suppose would be as real as it gets, but any recording of that is subject to the qualities of the equipment recording it, the skill of the recordist, the mixing of it, the mix decisions, the mastering decisions.
If you want to get out of the habbit of buying and selling them it's simple.
All I did was damage them to the point they are worth nothing second hand but still function perfectly fine. For example the crack in this headband makes it practically worthless to sell but changes nothing.
Looks like I've joined the club. For how long is anyone's guess but over a week means I'll probably keep them.
I'd rather sell a kidney than my HD650s
They will have to be very good to keep them over K712 or X2 I think. Not that X2 is my favourite headphone.
why does it have to be an either or?
My HD650s, AKG K702s and Sony MDR-100AAPs all have different strengths, which allows me to enjoy a bit of variety in my listening experience.
Simply because the K712 give me 90% of what I want, it would be hard for the 650's to slot in anywhere really but I have to try them just because I'd love to be surprised though.
Eek, you need headphone therapy.
My headphones need therapy. Most of them are damaged to the point they are unsellable.
Go to a-b hd600 and hd650 all last week, the majority of the Internet was correct that the hd600 sound slightly better, but also correct that the difference between them is subtle.Would be very happy with the hd650 if I hadn't heard the 600.
Fair enough if you prefer them, that's your right but where does this "majority of the internet" come from?
I am somewhat sceptical as well.
As Ryan said earlier, both offer different "flavours" - Not everyone like Prawn Cocktail over Cheese & Onion, that doesn't mean One is better than the other.
