Summary: I've listenend to all the top offerings from Denon, Audeze, AKG, Hifiman, Ultrasone & Sennheiser and this is one of my personal favourites. It is a true reference class headphone that is very natural sounding, albeit leaning ever so slightly towards a darker tone.
Pros: Richly detailed, supremely textured, natural sound that is smooth, effortless and relaxing to listen to. A forgiving allrounder with superb comfort.
Cons: Open headphone that requires good source and amplification
Excerpt: By default, I've become "the headphone guy" in high-end audio. I don't quite understand why other audiophiles don't fess up that they listen to 'phones too. Maybe it's a macho thing, like the Butt Blaster at the gym -- you never actually see guys using it, but you do see them furtively exiting the...
Summary: I love my HD650 for rock, jazz and weightier orchestral pieces. The sound is very detailed but somehow dark (which is good with some recordings). This headphone never sounds obtrusive or hard. It is very comfortable.
Pros: Great smooth, lush beautiful sound, very balanced and relaxing. Quite detailed. Dark. Very comfortable
Summary: There is not much to say. Only making this review to help indecided people, and contribute to the forum as a member who was helped too.
Bought this can second hand for 225 Eur. Practicly new and great price for what it is, i must say.
I'm no audio engineer, so i will keep things simple.
Pros: Great Sound overall! Durable! Replacement parts! Great price today!
Cons: Not found any big drawbacks! For the price i payed no complains. Ok, a bit more subass would be cool.
Summary: The Sennheiser HD650. The #1 overall rated headphone on the most prestigious and well known personal audio website Head-Fi.org. So when I had the chance to trade my most expensive headphone I’ve ever purchased (at the time), the Beyerdynamic T70p, I was definitely interested to see just what...
Pros: Sound is absolutely unbeatable for the price. Scales better than most any headphone.
Cons: Built quality & comfort have room for improvement
Summary: I am by no means experienced in this field. I am a poor 18 year old who spent a lot of time dishwashing in order to support his unreasonable obsession with great sound. When searching for my perfect headphone, I narrowed down my choices to two headphones: The Sennheiser HD650 and the HifiMan He-400.
