Sounds good, not great. The cord is too short. Build is on the light side. My Sennheiser HD 558 sounds better and has a better build quality.
These need a long burn in....give them time :) the 6x0 series scale up much more with amps than my 598 do..what amp are you using?
Hmmmm..that maybe light on power from what i have read for the 650s??
but would likely do well with the 558... when i get new cans, i think my ears need to adjust..often it takes a while and then when i go back to my ”lessor” cans, i see the difference...sometimes it is just different...I have so much stuff, sometimes i think it is the placebo effect...lol...but I dedicate think my higher priced stuff seems to sound better as they age...at least that is what i convince myself ;)
Thanks, you may be right! Because you mentioned burn in, I have taken them back out and am doing just that. After a few months, I will go back to the 558s to see if the difference is as stark as before. I may also need a need more amps as you pointed out.
I bought a nice 6 ft custom cable on ebay....not a fan of the included cable either
