Just got these in the mail, incredibly pleased with them! I notice the description mentions a robust aftermarket and interchangeable parts, anyone have any favorite upgrades or somewhere to direct me to look into that?
You can search Amazon for “HD 650 cable” or “HD 650 pads” and you will find a looooong list of accessories. You can actually do the same search here on Massdrop for some curated, well regarded options that drop pretty regularly. There’s also a whole discussion thread on Massdrop (and other sites) about amps and DACs to pair with the HD 6XX specifically: https://www.massdrop.com/talk/758/recommend-amp-dac-for-the-hd-6-xx?utm_source=linkshare&referer=BPKDQH
Personally, I think the stock cable is pretty good, but if I want a longer cable I’ll probably look at Wireworld or Cardas (DoubleHelix if I’m in the mood for DIY soldering), I like the Dekoni earpads (I hope they make Suede pads for the HD 6XX soon!!), I really like the Cavalli Liquid Carbon amp and Massdrop/THX collaboration amp (but if you want a lower budget option, I personally would choose a Liquid Spark on Monoprice.com over the Schiit Magni 3), and for a DAC it is hard to go wrong with the iFi Nano Black Label, but I am a surround nerd so I would pick up a Creative Labs G6 or a Sennheiser GSX 1000 and hook that up to the Spark (the GSX 1000 will get loud enough for the HD 650, but a better amp makes a noticeable difference).
If you have any questions about that long list of brands and models, hit me up in a reply 😁🤙 I’ve spent too long learning this stuff (and my wife would say I spent too much) to just keep what I’ve learned to myself.
