This will be the longest wait ever! I remember first hearing about the HD650 when I was a freshman in college. I had a part time job. No way could I afford it. What college student can? I wanted to buy it myself. All I could do is save pictures and read reviews on HeadFi haha! Fast forward more than 10 years and now I am finally ready to buy myself something nice after waiting for so long!
Sure its an extra wait/price but its something special, at least to me. I've had a few 'phones over the years: Sony MDR V600 (remember those big ol' things?? earpads fell apart; replaced them passed it down to mom), Sennheiser HD200 (the older version), and then I just used earpods for YEARS because it got the job done and I had other priorities.
About 5 years ago I finally upgraded to Sennheiser HD558--yeaaa Frys sales! Probably one of the best all-around 'phones for the price. I used an A/V receiver to power it and it was great! Now that I'm a big boy I can buy some big boy 'phones :)
You don't NEED these but if you got the cash, treat yourself, you've earned it. I know I have. Hell, I've waited more than a decade, whats another 6 months?
Guys, I am moderating all comments that are 'flame wars' instigated by certain folks. I'd suggest ignoring the instigators as I am keeping an eye on things. Thanks!
Thanks a lot! It's a relief to read this...
