HD650s were my previous daily drivers but the minute I tried these on, the Senns went back into the box. The initial intention was to keep the HD650 for music and beyer for the rest but the 1990s are just great at everything.

This is my first "audiophile" grade headphones and they are superb! I'm mostly a movie buff, but I also enjoy music. While my Sennheiser 598 HD's have been great for gaming, movies and music for the last 2 years, the music was meh. After countless hours reading and watching reviews of different DAC/Amps and headphones that would be great for both music and gaming, I found these, recommended by most sites, but especially Zeos.
I cannot find a fault with these headphones. The craftsmanship is superb (German made) and the sound is stellar. They are comfortable to wear for extended periods of time and are very sturdy. I wouldn't worry if they dropped on the floor. They feel that solid. They come with two sets of pads. I switched out the Balanced pair and attached the Analytical pair due to more softness and sound presentation. Paired with a good DAC/Amp ( I use The Element), they have been a real joy to listen to.
When I bought them from the Musician's Friend online store they were taking forever to ship, I had paid for them with PayPal so I couldn't figure out why. I made a big mistake when I bought these. I had never ordered from Musician's Friend before and I forgot to check the reviews on them before I made the purchase. I got on the Reseller Ratings website and looked them up and I was like "Uh Oh" they have a 1 out of 10 review rating. I thought "damn I'm going to get burned on this purchase", but low and behold they finally shipped and then a few days later I received them. I was like "Whew!".
Bought a custom cable for them too at Mimic Cables
