Tyll from Innerfidelity Preferred these over the M1060
I have both HD 650 and m1060, in my experience it depends what kind of music you are listening, HD 650 is more on neutral with emphasis on mid bass so you will enjoy songs that offer less bass, now m1060 on the other end even though it is open but has more punch on low end and imaging or sound stage is almost equal to Senn HD 650, so if you listen to R&B, or any music heavy on instrument u will enjoy m1060 better because of better low end production.
I own the hd650s but im asking about the m1060s or he4xxs
My apologies about this, I don't have hifiman he4xxx but as a owner for m1060 they sound terrific and one point I was considering to go with these hifiman but according to several reviews they aren't good on low end so that turned me away as I didn't want to get another neutral sounding headphones like hd 650
The M560 they are built better.
My M560 kicked the bucket after they fell off my lap. Probably a loose wire and will be easy enough to solder back into place, but the 5 year warranty didn't cover it. I love the way they sound, but that was my second warranty issue after buying in April.
I do manufacturing too, and there's always going to be a few bunk units out there, but it would give me pause to unilaterally say they're better built than X thing.
that would be true for any good neutral headphones, even if HD 650 is given proper amp and equalizing it will give very good bass but if you keep equalizer flat they have bass but more accurate bass rather than too much bass and that would be true for any open planar headphones as well, don't get me wrong they can produce pretty good bass but they can't compete with high end closed back headphones as they are different animal when it comes to producing bass. one example would be I do have pair of sony mdr z7 headphone, now even though there sound signature is completely different and they emphasize more on bass rather than neutrality but with correct amplification there bass shines on a whole different level and you want to hear some of those bass heavy songs again like daft punks songs, no matter which open headphones I use they sound alright but on sony's they sound incredible
man I would tell you even though I love my m1060 for there sound, but anything by monoprice I believe do seem to have quality problems not that I got any problems so far but they aren't meant to last long but there price range is so good that even if something happens to the headphones or it breaks I wouldn't mind spending another $300 for m1060
I drop mine off my desk at least once a day and i havent had any problems.
Yeah, like I said mine is probably a bunk unit, but 2 warranty-able issues (and not getting warranty support after the fall) has kinda pushed me away from wanting to pick up the M1060 or another M560. Hopefully more folks got your quality than mine, haha!
