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.

Awesome headphones

megasound, 19.05.2017
These headphones are absolutely amazing! I?m a relatively newbie in the audiophile camp , and so can?t compare them in different situations, setups and with higher priced products, but anyway have some experience with the sound, so I bought them to accompany my Hi-end speakers powered from Audiolab mdac+.
After having read a lot of forums and reviews, I noted that there were mostly 3-5 most famous models in this price range, and Sennheiser HD650 (which of course I also know and respect as a brand) being most suitable for me (I listen to different styles of music from jazz, classical, acoustic, chorus to rock music, all in Hi-res PCM and DSD). They claimed to reproduce the sound melodically, naturally, and absolutely balanced, without accenting on only highest frequencies (they are not too bright), or having too much bass, and are also reference model headphones. And all of this turned to be true. They give natural, accurate and spacial sound, they sound great with different styles of music. Also despite being open, the headphones bring deep bass to the music, the bass that is not dominant, but very precise, natural and dynamic. All music sounds just beautifully as (or almost) if was listening to the recording process in a studio. They give authentic voice reproduction, you can hear how the strings are touched, the contrabass so vivid and dynamic, the guitars being so clear and transparent, solos and cymbals very much defined.
More of it, the listening experience with the headphones seems to be the one got with the speakers, by the frequency response and the way the music sounds in general, and being so spacious, it seems that you are listening in an environment much bigger than the one around your ears.
So, I'm very happy with my purchase.
