Frequency Response Measurement & Correction

Sennheiser HD6XX/HD650

The HD6XX/HD650 measures with a smooth midrange but has an upper bass hump of +2dB from 70Hz to 400 Hz which gives the headphone the illusion of bass with a warm sound. The actual bass response is over -10 dB down at 20 Hz. While smooth through the midrange, the Sennheiser “house sound” with the peaky 5 kHz means that the high frequencies dominate the sound signature. Listening fatigue comes on quickly.

Engaging the high-resolution convolution filter transforms these headphones into a highly accurate sound reproducer resulting in the “best bang for the buck” headphones. Flat response to 40 Hz and -3 dB down at 30 Hz provides real bass for these open back headphones. Removing the peak at 5 kHz smooths out the response for long-term listening enjoyment with no listening fatigue.

Note the frequency response of the HD6XX and the HD650 are virtually identical. This convolution filterset can be used with either headphone with excellent results.

    I was using a 660s2

    I stumbled upon this site and tried the Susvara filter first.

    It was a convincing difference and the 660S2 filter was not available, so I bought the HD650 and put the filter on it.

    I’m glad I did.

    Combined with the HD6xx, it’s probably the best value for money.

    Upstream chain: Roon into Chord Qutest into GSX Mini into Senn 6xx. I typically prefer the LCD-XC 2021 EQ’d to my other headphones, but Mitch’s filter for 6xx changed the game. The tonality of the headphone was already legendary, but the filter improved the bass presence immensely. If you purchase this filter for the 6xx, you will hear a more tonally accurate and pleasing sound. I believe this filter makes the 6xx sound like a kilo-buck plus headphone at a very low price. Highly recommend to others.
