Let’s view the headphones Sennheiser HD 650 vs Beyerdynamic T1 2nd generation produced by two of the top brands in Germany and popular with audiophiles all over the world. Both headphones are over ear and wired, but HD 650 is open-back while T1 is semi-open.
Sennheiser HD 650 has 300 Ohm of impedance vs 600 Ohm of Beyerdynamic T1 2g. The HD 650 headphones have a more narrow range of frequency response, 10Hz-41KHz vs 5Hz-50KHz of Beyerdynamic. The sensitivity difference is slight, 103 vs 102 dB.
The trebles of Sennheiser HD 650 does not sound fatiguing and sharp, but clear and bright. In combination with distinct mids and highs it sounds quite natural. The headphones reproduce a wide soundstage that creates an impression of a live concert.
I can hear all the details of Beyerdynamic T1 2g sounds. At the same time all the shades of music are smooth and balanced. The lows do not roar and mids are decent. The trebles reproduce all the details of instrumentals and vocals. They may seem reduced with some tracks. The soundstage is a little remote.
Both headphones have a bulky and not really portable built with unfoldable cups. Tightly padded velour cups are large and comfy for most ears. The headband is leather padded and adjustable, but still feels tight.
Sennheiser HD 650 feels more comfy on the head for its lighter design vs Beyerdynamic T1 2g, 260 vs 360 g.
The Beyerdynamic T1 2nd generation is better headphones in this comparison. Check Beyerdynamic T1 2nd generation price
