Senn 650 cans at great price

Fri Oct 06, 2017 4:24 pm

Hi all. Just got a pair of Sennheiser 650 for 315 - Amazon or B&H. I know they were cheaper a year back but this is a great price for a fine pair of cans.

They sound fine out of the serious box, but I assume they will be better still with some breaking in.

"Breaking in" headphones is a myth. Your subjective listening preferences adjust to the headphones that you use. You may get a more comfortable fit as the band and cushions conform to your exact shape, but the performance of the drivers isn't going to change significantly.

I have been well-pleased with all of the Sennheiser headphones that I have purchased over the years, including the very well worn HD430 set that currently serves my PC gaming & music needs.

I still haven't fallen out of love with the HD600's I bought more than a decade ago. My ears will never get better :( so I can't justify these. But that's a great deal!
A most unfortunate, Freudian, double entendre is that hotel named "Budget Inn."
