PaintItAcoustic, 26.06.2017
Great headphones, both for studio use and listening to music.
Before HD650 I used to use AKG K271 MKII. A definite step up in terms of frequency presentation, AKG has a bit of a "veil", when you put them on after listening in HD650 there is a weird "deafening" feeling. HD650 provide the especially good picture of high frequencies, that is something that is impossible to spot on lower grade headphones. Representation of low-end is also very good.

HD650 are very comfortable on ears, despite a bit stiff headband. Those are my first open headphones, I really like the feeling of those, sound not being stuffed inside. But the thing to keep in mind is that they provide absolutely no isolation, so you should use them only in a very quiet environment. Build quality seems to be pretty good, although they don't look expensive (but it is the sound what's important, right?).
I'd recommend to wear both them a bit lower on the ears to get a better picture - wearing high adds a bit muddiness, but that's a general advice for any circumaural headphones.
If you're looking for quality Hi-Fi headphones for listening - this is a great choice, even though I like the isolation of closed headphones, I choose those to listen to music, because of their amazing sound and detail.
It takes some time to get used to them when mixing, but they will definitely help you improve, particularly in spotting brightness and harshness. The level of detail is amazing.
After using them for some time, I'd say before you completely get used to them - it makes sense pair them up with another set of headphones you know well, I noticed in my move to those from AKG K271 MKII is that HD650 tend to mask muddiness and flatter a bit since they have much wider frequency range, so it's better to check your mixes on other options when transitioning. Also, make sure to reference a lot then the transition will be much faster and smoother.

Very good, not perfect

Sergey Melnik, 04.12.2017
**Comfort: Excellent, no complaints 10/10

**Build quality: Pretty solid. The plastic seems very dense and long lasting. The headband adjustment mechanism is made of metal and it feels solid, the clicks are steady and secure. I don't like the part where the ear cups are rotated, feels a little flimsy. The cable is ok, soft and good feeling. The part I dislike the most are the connectors, every time I remove the cable I just feel like I'm going to brake something.

**Sound quality (very subjective): crisp sound with very good detail. It's hard to critique these headphones as they are praised so much for their good and accurate sound. I definitely agree that they are very good sounding, however I personally wish they had a little more base and clearer vocals. Don't get me wrong there is base, but it doesn't feel very defined or just lower in volume compared to the rest. About the vocals, I would say the sound is a little unfocused in the center. The sound stage is nice and wide but it doesn't quite connect in the middle to give those clear and defined vocals. Maybe this is the reason people prefer the HD600.

Maybe I just got used to the sound of good monitor speakers and this is what made me expect more from these headphones.
