Awesome and not even broken in yet!
I'm not going to write a long review with all kinds of specs and telling you what kinds of music I have sampled and all that. I consider myself to be an audiophile that cannot afford to milk a bunch of money into my listening experience. I've had the HD600s for years, which until now were the best headphones I'd ever owned. But recently the plastic headband finally had enough and cracked. For almost a year they were held together with duct tape.
I knew I wanted over-ear headphones that were open for a wider soundstage. I purchased the AKG701s after reading reviews that they were superior to the HD600s. I drive them with fairly powerful Denon integrated digital amp (150 watts per channel). While I was impressed with the soundstage and instrumental and vocal clarity, these phones are not very efficient and the low end distorts when it's too big. I probably have not given them sufficient break-in time.
I read the reviews on the HD650s with more efficient low-end response and committed to trusting what I know about my Sennheiser experience. I spent less than $350 and with only a handful of listening hours, I am pretty blown away. They are as efficient as the Sony headphones I picked up for less than $100 because of a CNET reviewer saying how good they sounded for the money and that they were so efficient you could plug them into anything and they'd sound pretty good even at louder volumes. For me, I thought they sounded thin and shrilly at louder volumes. The HD650s are the real deal and I am extremely pleased. Even television (Paladia, The Voice) sounds fantastic. Concert blu-ray sounds incredible. My CDs are reborn. How much better will the low-end perform when they're broken in?
Thank you again, Sennheiser!Read full review

I have been into quality sound since the mid 50's (monaural era). I have lived with a pair of early AKG 240's for 25 years. They finally physically came apart but they still worked. I bought these 650's to replace the AKG's after reading several reviews. I am very impressed. I use B&W 801 speakers that are recording studio monitors but find myself enjoying these just as much due their exceptional reproduction qualities and my wife does't have to listen to Stravinsky so that works out well for both of us.. Yes pricey but you get what you pay for.
