Acquaintance, Male, 45

So I'm running a "former flagship" collection. HD600/650/800, LCD2.2, K1000. Does a well-priced HE-560 have a reason to join the mix? Feb 19, 2017

        No. But an HE-6, HE-5, or even an HE-500 does.

        I think the 560 does.. But it -greatly- depends on upstream components with the 560.. A very picky bastard.. I know, I've owned it three times.

      Audio-gd NOS11 and LCD4 mine for two nights ... havn't enjoyed a bit of play time as much as this for a long time!

      Heard two top planars tonight. LCD4 quite intimate, adding snap and focus to LCD2.2 sound. HE1000V2 is more transparent, also more aloof.

        From my experience those two have a real "angle to you're devil" relationship between each other. Also both kinda disappointed me, though in very different ways. Have fun anyway!!!

        I saw an HEK for $1799 and HEX $899, if it was a year ago, I'd be all over that.

        Impressions to follow ... not sure I can add much on a 35 year old product that has not been said before ☺

      Pulled the trigger on a mint one-owner pair of AKG K1000's. Excited I am!

      Loved spending time with the Wadia 15 recently - oldie but certainly a goodie!

      Enjoying the hype of new models at the upper end. Would love the same in the middle ... think HD800 / LCD2 performance HD600 / HE400 price!

      Time to let HD650 go? Having HD800 & LCD2 these get little airtime. Plus the upper bass / lower mid region quite warm and bloomy.

        Sell the HD650 if you don't use it. For fun go mod the HD800.

        OK, so give me the Twitter version of top mods for HD650. I like lots of detail, tight dynamics and realistic imaging. What should I do, pref reversible.

        I'd let them go and not go crazy of the mods. The advantages that a more resolving headphone like the HD800 provides can not be replicated with any 650 mod.

        They're interesting. Other than that - I'd pass. A novelty item.

        Novelty from the crazy AKG days. Novelty with massive amounts of charm.
