I do have a pair of Sennheiser HD 650 that i use with my home cinema system and i just love the quality of sound and the comfort, i also have a pair of Sennheiser HD 555 that i use with my computer and i love the quality/price ratio of both items. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any of my friends.

I found this review not helpful because...I doubt this guy has listened to enough high end headphones to make that statement. What the Sennheiser 650's do is inject artificial bass to soften the sound and suck the listener in. However on tracks that are already well endowed with bass we end up with a smear of mud that conceals the detail and ends up dull and unexciting and blurred. Don't get me wrong , the 650's do sound great on some tracks , just not all. If you want a clear , precise and more accurate rendition of what was laid down then look to the Grados or the AKG K 702. Sennheiser themselves admit that the 650's have been tweaked in order to have mass appeal. It probably has worked but as I say it can produce mud where there should be clarity.

Having compared to a couple other cans I can honestly say the Sennheiser HD 650 are the best.

The have to be broken in for about 80-100 hrs before reaching their full potential, and a replacement cable (for instance the Zu Mobius) shocks even more. This cable was only for lending unfortunately (1 week that I begged and got prolonged to 1 month), and they cost almost as much as the cans themselves. If you can afford it I can only recommend this as well.

“There are a few things you really have to know before...”

written by ZachAndrews on 24/01/2007

There are a few things you really have to know before you buy these phones.
Firstly they are the best headphone that money can buy.
(Anyone wanting any better will have to be willing to part with upwards of £1,000, do some serious searching, and put up with having something that looks like an air conditioning unit on either side of their head)

However listening to MP3 players with these will bring you many problems.
Firstly the amp on the mp3 isn't good enough, so the player will be straining to power your phones.
MP3 quality just isn't good enough for these kinds of phones, every imperfection will be exposed and the music may sound flat and lifeless.
You should give your heaphones 80 or so hours to "burn in" and you will notice the improvement in sound quality as they get older.

After a few months of listening to these plugged directly into my MP3 I purchased a specialised portable headhpone amp (With crossfeed) from headroom.com and the sound quality is now amazing.

However for the best audio experience out there you will want to get a balanced amp, a balanced cable, and if you don't already have one a quality audio player. Which completely removes any notion of portability, and won't cost you less than £2,000. However the sound quality is phenominal, and when you take into consideration that equivalent loudspeakers could cost you upwards of £10,000 it's practically good value.
