I have the E-7 currently and also tried them on an old HK receiver from the E7s line out, but Im planning on either getting the E9 to dock with it or the little dot MKii sometime after christmas.

They are the best headphones I have ever tried, I haven't heard this legendary 'veil' yet, but it sounds like im in the room where the music is being played, even better on some recordings, and as I have played in an orchestra before I am by no means a stranger to live music. Ive worn them probably for roughly 10 hours already and they are incredibly comfortable and easy to listen to. The music envelopes you and the sound staging is excellent and relaxing with a wide variety of music, it sometimes feels like your inside the instrument or its inside your head lmao

in two words: BUY THEM biggrin.gif

Heh, if i was to buy some senns, I would rather go for the HD600s. They seem more suited to my taste.

When you say in the room, do you mean in like a chamber, or in a concert hall? I was under the impression that the HD650s had a more concert hall feel to them, especially with orchestral stuff.


OT: What instrument did you play? I'm a cellist.

it feels like im sitting right with the conductor for full orchestra pieces, but yes like a hall, Ive heard good things about the 600s but i wished for a bit more of the bass (as I played the Double bass and electric bass, but drifted away from it after my upright suffered cracked glue along the back panels) and was going to recable them with the 650 cable so i just decided to bite the extra few bucks, and I have never been happier with a purchase thumb.gif, they are very balanced to my ear, a little heavier on the low end, but not to the point of distraction, and as a bassist i can appreciate the low end lol

I kept going back and forth between the HD600 and the PRO900s. As much as i wanted the HD600s for classical, my music taste varies so much, from electro to metal, prog, trance, dub, and basically anything else, that I wanted something that could keep up with any genre. I don't regret my choice at all. Sacrificing a little bit of fidelity in classical recordings for the incredibly lush, detailed bass of the PRO900s was a trade i was all too willing to make.

I just wish I had a bit more soundstage. While the PRO900 is phenomenal at soundstage for a closed headphone, I really miss the imaging I got from my AD700s or DT880s (even though I didnt like the DT880s overall).

Well the 650s keep up with all my genres from slow rock to classic rock (eagles, journey, etc..) to techno and even punk, but they really shine with classical and piano centric tracks, as well as vocals, it seems we have similar tastes lol, the only genres i dont like are rap or hiphop and country.
The soundstage on the 650s feels very open, not quite expansive, but a medium sized concert hall is a good description, it did hoiwever impress my family a lot as they all use ipod earbuds tongue.gif

Heh, i can't stand rap/hiphop/country... but really thats it. Some modern pop can be annoying, but some of it isn't half bad.

And I know what you mean, having friends come over and playing them FLAC tracks through an STX with any one of my headphones would always blow them away. I'm slowly but surely converting all of them. smile.gif

Interested in the Ultrasone reference CD? I have the whole thing ripped in FLAC and uploaded to my dropbox, if you PM me your email I could share the folder with you. Its a great collection with a bunch of tracks to test out soundstage (especially the first one).

My first audiophile setup.

Specs listed there, but I can list here as well...
Headphones: Audio-Technica M50S
Amplifier: Fiio E9
Sound Card: Creative X-fi Titanium
Mic: Zalman Clip-on

So far, I love this thing to death, but being in a skype call nearly all the time, I haven't gotten much of a chance to use them. It's making me very sad. frown.gif
