    Just got these. Good but they need heavy EQ and something is up with the treble phase, but they're pretty good at resolving so they're worth EQing. I have an EXHAUSTIVE corrective EQ that I've been working on that I'm pretty proud of. I'll post some samples later if people want.

    Let the discussion begin!

    Yeah, these needed some damping over the driver to sound right. But, at that point, I still think the HD650 is better...

    Pfft, I shan't judge, I was merely invoking the awesome power of the SBAF custom search to shed some light... :)

    this is the most complicated eq i've ever done...

    this is by ear...i used the auto eq to sum together all of the changes from 10+ eq plugin instances so you could see them visibly...

    Here's a before/after

    This mix is a little bass muddy, that's not the EQ. Skip around to some of the quieter parts.

    A Paradox was used for reference. I'm surprised at how close I got it to sounding like one. Sorry they're not volume matched. It was kind of impossible.

    I wish the 650's were as comfortable as the K7XX.

    I'm glad they finally got rid of those damn bumps on the bottom of the headband. I couldn't stand to wear my old K712 more than 45 minutes because of those things.
