As for replacement. No, not at all. They are all different now, and none of the new range is reminiscent of the old one

Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally -___-.

I just took a gander, and I"m guessing he UE 900 is what's replacing the Triple.fi 10. They look a tad sleeker, but I wonder how they sound. Guess I'll be waiting for another wondrous Amazon deal smile.gif.

EDIT:

Just read some reviews on Amazon and people seem to love them. A little concerned that a couple people say the bass isn't as strong. I love the bass on the Triple.fi's, so I'd hate to see it go. I'd rather lose some impact, than deepness, though.

My friend that I trust has good ears, said they are good, but don't take the crown.
A bit like the tf10s in that respect - they are great earphones, but miss that bliss feeling.
In other words, the pfe232s, heir 4s, w3s are still the best in the business'

As for sound, apparently they share the same ue mids dip, but not as major as the tf10s did

Really starting to get seriously annoyed about the stock cable with the HD650's this is my 7th one now and its not like im doing anything bad with it but the right side connector always fails . 1st thing in the new year I will be sending a letter to whoever made this lead up at Sennheiser in Germany. This is the 7th time the same thing has failed surely its time they fixed it. after at least 5 years of owning my HD650s

I hope they are not charging you for their services. That amount of fail rate is unacceptable.

I don't mind the mids dip. Harsh mids can kill any respect I have for a pair of cans/IEMs.

If you can hear a difference and graphs show nothing, that either means that, a) measurement devices are not accurate enough, or b) you are imagining things.
The bigger issue here is, when there IS a difference on a graph, it is often hard to tell whether that will sound as a positive or negative change to one's ears...

I think graphs are beneficial too. But strictly in a clinical/mechanical fashion. Most of what people react to in regards to graphs and the application of a "data-centric" approach to music is probably some innate human desire to defend the fact that music is rooted in ideas, culture. And is, above all else, something that is reputed to "speak to our emotions" and our "souls." How dare you claim you can measure something so uniquely human and special!! ;-) ... but I think folks confuse "music" with the "machine" ... and in regards to the mechanical qualities of any given headphone? Sure, graphs are interesting...

That said ...

I don't use graphs, personally. Nor am I too interested in them. I will say this, though ... most graphs I've looked at for any pair of cans I've had more than passing experience with ... have actually portrayed the pure sonic information in a way that I have found to be fairly accurate to my memory of any given sound/can. But in the end, it's data ... and I would never base a purchase decision on data alone, at least not in regards to music.

It would be as foolish as, say, doing a graph of Beethoven's 9th Symphony and arguing that what you can view in the plot is explainable as reason enough alone to appreciate the art. I understand the huge flaws with that example but still ...

Well usually that's related to harsh highs, thus sibilance

My sister bought them for me for my birthday (Nov 26). So, I can't exactly go "thank you, sis. But, I actually wanted these ones," is kinda out of the picture. I am aware of where the respective headphones sit, in terms of entry-mid-enthusiast-studio level scale. I just wanted some Sennheisers, because they'd beat the crap out of anything I have in the house today. EG: I have a pair of Sony earbuds, a pair of iPod earbuds, a pair of iHome earbuds (was a sale at JC Penney when my wife worked there), a Logitech H150 headset, and I think that's it.

They have ALOT of bass, but the highs and mids are much more balanced and can be rectified further with a little EQ tuning.

I may have to install Foobar and play with it. I need to know it as well as I did WinAmp.

I bought a headset yesterday, the Turtle beach X12's.

Not bad, but they have nothing on my HD 518's. They distort when you turn them up too redface.gif

So i sent a email to both Paul Whiting the Preidant of Sales EX MD of Sennheiser UK and there generic info@sennheiser.co.uk

and it reads

Hi Paul

I know this isn't really your field but I thought I would bring your attention to a ongoing problem with the HD650 headphones. I have bought 2 of these and am now on my 7th headphone cable due to the right connector failing. My current cable has also just failed.

I Don't mind sending the headphones away again to be fixed but just thought i would let you know so that you let whoever know about this. I have used these headphones in all types of situations and it is always the same thing failing. Where the cable goes into the connector always ends up making no contact inside the connector.

Now given that this will be the 8th cable from you , some I have bought and some i have had replaced. My warranty just expired a week ago and I would like a free repair but of course I don't mind if a replacement cable is just sent to me to save time if that is possible.

Of Course it shouldn't go without saying how much I love these headphones and Sennheiser products in general as I am the proud owner of some HD800's which I have for a few months now and touchwood no problems with them at all.

Keep up the great work and I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards
