Toothpaste, 30.04.2021
I mainly use these headphones for mixing and mastering (along with my Adam A5X monitors).

Comfort & Quality:

They are very comfortable to wear for long hours. The headband and the earpads are soft but still firm enough. The plastic used on the headphones looks and feels somewhat cheap, although I personally didn't have any issues with it so far. I've read comments online from people with broken headbands though. So, let's just say that I'd expect a higher quality feel on headphones that cost more than 300 euros.

Only (very minor) problem I've had with these headphones so far has been the cable connection on the headphone end getting loose. Maybe the connector wasn't properly in place to start with, cause this only happened to me two times in the first few days of use. I can't really comment more on the built quality / durability yet, since I've only owned them for a couple of months now.

Sound:
Very happy with the monitoring experience. It's very easy to work for long hours with these headphones and the mixes translate very well. The soundstage is not so huge (compared to some AKG open-back models) but it is still there. I generally use them in combination with Sonarworks Reference, which gives them the boost they need in the low end (where they originally lack a bit of energy) and a minor correction in the high mid range, but really, the correction Sonarworks does on these is very minor, which shows that the headphones are quite flat to start with.

Oh and a very important note: I've read a million comments online about how it's super difficult to drive these headphones / one would need a powerful headphone amp and so on... Not really!! My Original RME Babyface (which is notorious for having not enough juice on the headphone output) can drive these headphones perfectly well, that is, to hearing-loss-inducing levels with great clarity.. but then again, loudness is very subjective, so you should try and see(hear) for yourselves.

All in all, I'd definitely recommend these headphones!!

Good, not perfect
Artem Shevchenko, 16.08.2020
These headphones are really famous and a lot of people recommend them--that's why I bought them for mixing. I wouldn't say they are perfect, my expectations were higher, but still, I not regret buying them: nevertheless, it's a GOOD choice. I use them with my UAD Apollo Twin sound interface and everything works fine, I have enough of headroom.

Pros:
+ clear and detailed sound
+ interchangeable cable
+ nice look

Cons:
- seemed to me too bright - but it's good for finding sound artifacts
- not so comfortable, a bit tight - after an hour of using them I had a headache (hope some time needed for them to loose up)
- the cable is not coiled (I believe the majority of sound engineers prefer a coiled one, as I do)

Reference headphones for a good reason
Rboggyz, 13.05.2020
These have gone around as being reference headphones since the HD580 was launched. I have to say I cannot disagree with that at all. I am using them with a JDS Labs Element 2, and have compared them to the HD580s which I also own, as well as a couple of pairs of Beyerdynamic, the DT 770 Pro 250 Ohm and the DT 1770 Pro. The nature of those being closed back, a direct comparison is not exactly fair, however! The Sennheisers are more confortable, and sit very well in terms of sound quality. Bass is not as punchy, but it's still full of detail, they have excellent mids, I have noticed male voices sound beautiful on them. Highs are not fatiguing, nor faded, for my ears they are just right. One good comparison with the Beyers would be the soundstage. Although Sennheisers are open back, the soundstage is close and intimate. Overall I am very happy with the HD 650 and I can recommend them for everyone who wants a good pair of mid-range headphones.

Good sound quality - Lacking on soundstage
Jamie Stivala, 10.01.2021
Personally, I use these for constant listening to audio (daily home driver).

These headphones are very easy to listen to. Very comfortable and the audio is not "too much" that you have to have breaks in between long listening sessions. They sound greater when listening with higher levels of audio.

My only issue is that the sound-stage is not as wide as I had hoped. Despite that, the audio still sounds beautiful, especially at higher levels of audio.

Paired with a FiiO K5 Pro DAC/AMP
