Sennheiser HD650 Audiophile Headphones
The Sennheiser HD650 headphones are high-end audiophile headphones and arguably the best headphones you can buy in this category.
Are you particular about high quality sound production in headphones? Or do you enjoy experimenting or working with high fidelity sound equipment? Then you must be an audiophile.
Studio managers and music producers in particular are very critical of headphones and use the best sound production headphones available on the market. Quality and magnitude of sound are two very important factors in headphones that appeal to audiophiles and studio managers.
Some headphones excel in sound quality, while sound magnitude is lacking. For other headphones, the reverse is the case.
Audiophile headphones are made with these two important factors in mind. Most audiophile headphones are very expensive as manufacturers pull out all the stops to make sure sound quality and magnitude are optimally produced.
Audiophiles simply want to hear every little detail in a musical piece at high or low volumes. Musical notes and pitches have to be adequately represented in audiophile headphones.
Many headphone users do not know what they are missing till they purchase and use a good audiophile headphone. An audiophile is thus represented as an individual that has a great love for high quality sound or enjoys working with high fidelity equipment.
These headphones are arguably the best headphones on the open market in their category.
Most reviews rate them as the best sound quality headphones available and yes, the best headphones on the market.
Sennheiser audiophile headphones have been improved from the HD580 headphones produced in the mid 90's to the HD600 and now the HD650 headphones. The HD650 headphones have a broad frequency range from 16Hz to 30kHz.
Specifically, low frequency sounds (deep bass) are adequately represented. Bass and midrange sounds are the most difficult areas of sound for small drivers to handle but the HD650 represents this sound frequency range in very good detail.
To fully appreciate the sound capabilities of this headphone, you need to listen through a high quality stereo or headphone source. The drivers in this headphone are made from special acoustic silk material which optimally maintains natural timbre and reduces distortion from harmonics and intermodulation.
Using the HD650 with a portable audio device such as MP3 player will make you acutely aware of the deficiencies of portable devices as regards to sound quality and format the music was recorded in is very important.
The Sennheiser HD650 headphones are open-air headphones and will not minimize sound broadcast to the outside world, so beware when using them with your portable music device in public areas.
The HD650 headphones are very efficient in providing quality sounds across range and you will hear every little detail of your music. It does not matter the genre of music being listened to as every musical instrument is picked up.
Audiophiles will simply love these headphones because musical sounds are truly captured as they were recorded in the studio.
The construction of the HD650 is solid and they are more durable albeit heavier than the HD590. The interior of its padded bridge is made of hard metal that won't break easily and parts of it which would usually be made from plastic in other headphones are reinforced with carbon fiber. With proper care, these headphones can last a lifetime.
These headphones are not to be judged for their sound quality overnight. Allow a burn in period of at least 36 hours for the diaphragms to loosen and you'll be surprised at its amazing sound quality.
