      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.

      K1000 ... should I, shouldn't I?

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

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

        Little late now. But that Leben was fabulous ... Both as jewellery and when driving HD800. So much so that I am hunting one down as my "alternate main amp" next to the Phonitor for use with HD800, T1 and K1000.
