The HD 650s sound better that the HD 800s you idiots.

As bright and revealing as they are, and considering my music preferences, the 800's are... bad. I own the 650s, and would agree - for anything other than acoustic instrumental/classical, the 650s sound better.

I was being sarcastic, but I have never listened to either.

Well, you weren't wrong. :) I think Tyll at innerfidelity.com did a good job explaining the properties of the 800's. They are great for recording engineers who need to hear every little detail of their recordings. If your enjoyment of music is derived from analyzing every note played, in classical pieces for example, then with the right amp your gonna love them. For everyone else who wants to jam to some pop, rock, or edm, they are going to fatigue you after a while of listening, especially on the high end (read: treble) and will lack the low end slam and boom quantities that make those genre's fun.
If you're willing to spend serious $$$ on a set of cans, and want that fun musicality and soulful experience, get the HiFiMan HE560 (if you have a good amp), the Sony Z7's, Sennheiser HD650, or Audeze LCD 2... or heck, save yourself a boat load of cash and go with the AudioTechnica ATH m50x.
