Very good price, really like mine; would recommend if you are looking to spend about this much on a pair of headphones.
#4

Most of the people this will apply to will be sat at home with them, more than likely in a room by themselves as they are open backed.

Sound > style.

I bought a pair of these ~8 years ago brand new off eBay for £180, worth the money and you can get replacement parts too. My only regret was when my amp started to die and the perceptable audio quality suffered, now I need a new amp lol
#8
Also worth noting that the HD600 are at a realy good price atm at £213.18. Definitely worth considering as most headphone nuts will let you know that the HD650 aren't a direct upgrade to the HD600 and are more akin to a different flavour.

Really great set of headphones (I have a pair), but you need a headphone amp of similar quality (£200+) and a really good source (more like £1000+ really) to get the best from it. Not worth getting if you are just going to plug it into a tablet or ipod.

Great home studio reference headphones, I've seen these pop up on
a few sound engineer forums as highly recommended for performance to price, don't take my word for it and have a search

Why?
Obviously the source of the sound needs to be good or you will pick up (noise) hiss or distortion from the source, these are generally more apparent with headphones, and some tablets do have noisy headphone outputs. If the headphones are insensitive, then it may be possible to get the headphone amplifier to clip. But none of the reviews mentions lack of sensitivity and it's unlikely anyway with moving coil headphones.
A £1000+ amplifier is likely to produce a high output, but of course you don't connect these phones to that output. Amplifiers have a separate headphone amplifier circuit, just like any device with a headphone output.

Ridiculously overpriced. Can buy a 30 quid pair which would sound the same.

Cold from me.

It's nothing to do with noise, hiss or distortion. These are very good headphones, but if you do not feed them with other equipment that has the same potential you may as well just get some cheaper headphone (you won't hear any difference). You could still use these with any device (I sometimes plug mine into my 3DS and phone), but if you want to really hear them at there best you should budget for some other kit of a similar quality. It's like putting formula 1 car tyres on a 1ltr fiesta.

I think they're full of it to be honest, but I'm curious.
#17
The thing is I'm sure they probably would sound the same as a £30 pair to trixabel & co...
#18

Why did it drop so quickly this month, new model coming out?

Because they are ridiculously overpriced and you can buy a 30 quid pair which would sound the same, apparently. (_;)

Just a warning to anybody thinking of getting these although fine for some people they may sound 'boring' to others. There's no bass boost or treble boost designed into the drivers to make them sound 'punchy' and 'detailed'. Also you really need a headphone amplifier to drive these as the impedance (resistance) of the drivers is so high (I've no idea why they design headphones with a resistance so high I think it's ridiculous).
Also to me the HD600/HD650 sound worse in every way than the HD598/HD558 headphones that don't require a headphone amp and are about half to a third of the price. I've owned headphones from all the 'big' audiophile/studio brands over the years so I like to think I know what I'm talking about. :D

By the way anyone who wants or likes headphones you can compare many here:

Also I wouldn't buy 'Beats' headphones like 'Bose' they are over-priced for the sound quality. Unless you like a bass level similar to a 12" sub in a Saxo then 'Beats' are for you. :D

I have the HD600s and they're really excellent. As someone mentioned earlier, they're similar quality, just a different flavour. I believe the 650s are a bit less natural, but more bassy.

Clearly you don't know what you're talking about.

Someone who comes out with a comment like that clearly has no idea.

I have a pair of these and with a separate headphone amp, they sound very good with a quality source.
