If I already purchased the Fostex X00's, are these different enough to get too?
They sound absolutely nothing alike. Hd650's (hd6xx is just massdrop version) are open back and fostex makes almost if not all closed backs. They will sound much more open, and have a different tone to them. I've used them before but I just joined because I don't own a pair and this is a great price. However. Notice the current ship date is mid DECEMBER of this year, I'm considering dropping out of this drop because that's just ridiculous. I wouldn't mind waiting even 2 months but 6??? Really second guessing myself on that....
Thanks for the response. I think perhaps getting an amp to complement the Fostex might be a better option. I know this is a great deal, but am having a hard time justifying it after spending 400 on the X00's.
That would be an excellent option. These need an amp to sound good. Without an amp the 300 ohm impedance sounds quiet and tinny. Your fostex will sound like different headphones with a proper DAC and amp
Schiit Jotunheim works great with both the 650 and X00 despite them being very different sounding headphones.
