  • Summary: The praise that has been heaped upon the Sennheiser HD650 headphone is something that probably every headphone OEM envies. The HD-650 is nearly a decade old and yet is still viewed by many as a top tier dynamic, worthy flagship, and is the benchmark that many measure price to performance ratio...
  • Pros: Smooth Presentation, a linear, stout sound at louder volumes.
  • Cons: build quality is meh! Overall sound is too recessed and lacks weight

  • Summary: My first Sennheiser was the HD555, which was a real gem for its price bracket, and then when it broke, I replaced it with the HD600. I immediately exchanged it for the HD650 as I found the HD600 to sound so similar to the HD555 (just a little bit more treble mainly) that the price difference wasn't...
  • Pros: Smooth, non-fatiguing sound, comfortable, well-balanced sonic signature
  • Cons: Sub-bass could be deeper, treble could be slightly more airy

  • Summary: This is my second round with these "holy grail" of headphones. First time around I was just laughing at it's meager power capability. The sound was good, but not mind blowing. Zero sub bass control, with ok bass.impact. I got the Hifiman 400i and couldn't be any happier.
  • Pros: Light and comfortable.
  • Cons: Too much money for what it is.

Sennheiser HD650 Review

  • Summary: The Sennheiser HD650 truly offers an incredible experience and once you listen to it for a while, there’s little doubt left as to why they are so popular. The Sennheiser HD650 are pricey, without a doubt and they’re not value-for-money, either.
