Not with headphones.
Previous headphone experiences are going to colour ones perception of 'what is good'.

Furthermore I think Sennheiser HD 650 is perfect for my DP. Big difference compared to the 598. Worth every Swedish Crown.

I skipped the 600 because I found the 650 to be superior. And I don’t need an amp to drive them.

Perhaps this depends on you plugging in on a Roland and I use it with my Yamaha CVP 709.



I think it depends a lot on the piano you use. I could test several headphones at a music shop with the supernatural piano and the bass sounds (a bit too) boomy if the headphones are not neutral enough (and the 650 aren't...). Haven't tried with my virtual pianos, but all the headphones I have (HD598, Focal Spirit Pro, AKG and Shure) are pretty neutral.
As for not needing an amp, it depends on the piano... My Roland won't be able to power 600/650 adequately, but other pianos (including from Roland) do... And a laptop with pianoteq won't be able either... Personally I use a cheap amp, HA400, in order to have 4 headphones at the same time, each at it's ideal volume, but I doubt it would be enough for the 600/650...
