"It's colored but it's color only sounds attractive through tubes. All headphones aren't tuned for SS amp sound, or the 50,000 Sennheiser Orpheus wouldn't be paired with a tube amp.
Other colored headphones sound better with SS amps sure, but NOT the hd650. The hd650's coloration only sounds properly engaging through a tube amp. This is the 90 percent consensus. That's because it lacks low and high energy that it has to sound lively somehow, a sound it doesn't achieve through 99 percent of SS amps. I am sure that because the 650 is a modified 580/600 it was also originally designed for tubes and warmer systems, as the tech is decades old and commonly used in systems much warmer than we are using today. It really does sound absolutely *insert curse word here*ing and flat with no detail through SS "
You really dont see that even if that would be correct you would support my point? It is Preference, if its a Company house sound (relative believe of their concept of good sound that is different from Company to Company) or if some hifi group mostly likes something some way its still relative and subjektive. Its not absolut and "just" true.
Example : If the 70 or 80 or 90 % actually like elevated bass more than linear bass, than isn't elevated bass universal needed for good sound. Its a question of Preference like "attractive" may indicate .
We can get measurements of accurate reproducing, but we cant actually find the universal good sound. We have very different concepts of good sound, like we have with everything that is perceived 'good'.
its seems everyone likes different.
"And please don't assume my preferences as I hate U and V signatures, Just because I don't like the mid-oriented hd650 that fails to resolve good bass and treble, doesn't automatically mean I like V-shaped, lol."
I wrote "if". I didn't wrote that you do. The hd 650 has relativly elevated bass and mids, its not just midoriented.
"Or Sennheiser is stupid, Lmao."
no there trying to make a profit. This sounding seems to be trending in their target group.
"Sorry to argue when you're wrong but this one's not up for debate."
Please don't do that. it isn't true just because its written. Actually we are debating.
Coloring and inaccurate measurements aren't really compatible with the "High Fidelity". the Term "Music or audio enthusiast" could be more accurate to describe this group of preference .
