Grab a pair of Philips SHP9500s at newegg for $60, add 2mm thick felt insert to smooth-out high frequencies, get 90% performance of HD650s at 1/3 cost.

Own the 9500's, have the insert and have listened to the 650's. I can't say that it isn't damn near close.

not really though, they have a completely different sound signature. The SHP9500 also doesn't resolve details as well.

Admittedly I don't own the Senheisers and my comment is based on the numerous reviews on teh net, but I find it hard to imagine anyone would need more details beyond what I hear from SHP9500. They are too bright out of the box, yes, but as far as resolution goes they are pretty good.

Might as well get $10 headphones, drill holes for soundstage, measure them and EQ them so that they have a frequency curve that matches the HD 800. Get 100% the performance of HD 800's at 1% of the cost.

Modded SHP9500 is a reasonable compromise at a fraction of a cost without being ridiculous.

Someone let their 12 year old use the computer past their bedtime. This is what irresponsible parenting looks like. Help your friends with kids and prevent internet snark.
