Whew...I didn't check in on the discussion for a few days and I noticed that in the middle there was some discussion of politics. LOL....how did that get started. Guess you can not escape it these days. Okay..have a good question. Not politically motivated....well it could turn out that way. Anyone out there pair this up with a Schiit Modi/Asgard combo or at least drive it with the Asgard? That is my current desktop rig and wanted to get a preview of what to expect when I hook these babies up to it.
FWIW, I drive HD 650s with a BiFrost/Asgard 2, and they sound great -- the Asgard 2 has no problem driving the headphones. IIRC, one of the headphones for which Schiit tuned the Asgard was the HD 650.
I like the warm-ish sound of the HD 650's -- I find it musical and engaging, and have the same preference in my open-air stereo setup. Other folks have different preferences -- people can lean toward more a more forward sound with more neutrality and precision or even lusher, darker tones. The HD 650s are a good balance for me. YMMV.
