This review is from: Sennheiser - Around Ear Headphones (HD 650)
Pros: If you are a gamer or hobbyist who wants to start getting serious about their headphones please do yourself a favor and JUST START HERE. The hd650's are a legend of a reference class headhone and for a good reason. For years this was Sennheiser's flagship headphone and til this day it holds its ground to headphones well above its price range. It's exceptional comfort allows hours (done 12 hours plus no fatigue) of listening sessions.
Cons: Investment: This headphone as you may know by now reading this review, is that this headphone has a fairly higher impedance which requires an amp to juice them up a bit and get the absolute fullest sound from them. How much you spend is up to you, go run to the headfi forums for amp reccomendations to fit your budget.
Other Thoughts: Delightful headphone to listen to for hours on end. I was never as huge of a jazz fan til I could ear the sure delight that comes from these when I play it =). Whether its gaming or flac file listening sessions this headphone just ends up being my go to choice for an all arounder.
I will say that if you are a heavy EDM genre listener such as myself there are some more notable options for over ear higher dollar headphones that have the particular low extension when compared directly to these. HiFiman's HE-400 is an exceptional choice for EDM tracks but for rock and hip-hop the hd650's are still a delight.
Pros: *Looks pretty
Cons: One stick came dead on arrival. Don't think this can't/won't happen to you. Every manufacture sends out defective products and it was Corsair this time unfortunately. Went with another brand.....fool me once.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Amazing sturdiness in construction
-Nice simple appearance
-Button feedback is amazingly responsive
-The sound and feel of this bad boy in action
-Small size to save desktop space
-No backlit keys (I'm a big boy I know where my keys are)
Cons: -Find myself still reaching for the numpad enter key lol
Other Thoughts: This keyboard is just simply put....amazing. The construction is top notch, it looks very slick in person. The sound and response from every key is way better than many other mechanicals I've tried (blue switches ftw). Even the braided usb that comes with this is all quality baby. If you're on the fence to replace or simply try out a new keyboard I couldn't recommend this board enough guys.READ FULL REVIEW
