HD650, or 600.
« on: July 09, 2018, 05:14:43 PM »
Hey All!

After listening to a pair of HD650's, HD600 and AKG K7xx over the weekend, I have made up my mind on the HD650. Or HD600. or K7xx...  :faint:

If you have a pair of HD650s or HD600s you are thinking of selling, feel free to send me a PM to discuss.

I now own HD598's HD650's... Which automatically qualifies everything I have to say audio-wise. :D

Not selling.  Just suggesting.

Ahh! I tried the DT990, and though it was super comfy I preferred the sound of one of the 3 I mentioned. Not too sure how different the DT880 is...

Very different.  The 990 is not engineered to have a flat response afaik.  The 880 is.

Sold my one pair, not selling the other. Also I don't have extraneous amps at the moment. Thomas24 may be able to help though.

Are you still looking?

I have a pair of Sennheiser HD600 with brand new ear pads and head band padding, that I bought yesterday from Sennheiser SA, that I'd like to sell.

R1000 for earpads and headband padding together. I drove to their office in Midrand. They had stock so there was no waiting time.
