Not sure what you mean by "rested on top of the ears", I looked at an online photo of the 6500's, and they appear to be "normal" over the ear type, unless you have large ears, or the photo make them look larger, are you saying they were too small to fit totally over your ears? I've never seen them in person, but the 7500's fit over my entire ears. I was first concerned that the headphone band had NO adjustments for each ear piece, like you find on most models where you can slide the ear cups up or down, but the inner band of these phones, that is actually the ON/OFF switch, more or less acts like an adjustment as it pushes up when you put them on, and at least for me, this works fine and offers a comfortable fit for hours of wear. And I like the auto on/off feature, NO switch to find and press. There is only a volume knob, NO audio adjustments on the headphones. If you route your DVD or BlueRay deck directly through the unit, you'll get all the audio codecs that most modern disk have on them, and I've found DTS Master, to be just fine without needing any fussing, though you can accentuate both the bass and center channel levels, right from the headphone buttons. I find this model has PLENTY of bass while watching BlueRay movies. If you have a HDMI setup, these are hard to beat. I did a lot of searching online, and there are headphones with 5 speakers in each cup, but they cost thousands, and have huge base stations, and seem like overkill, especially to your wallet. Granted these are not cheap, but I'm happy I choose them. I found a store in NYC that has a sister website that imports Japanese products like these, so I was able to have them delivered to the store front, and made sure I had at least 30 days to try them, thus avoiding any shipping, customs, extra charges etc. and any shipping return nightmares. If you can afford approx. $475.00, then I think you will be impressed. I know my upstairs neighbors are, as they don't have to listen to my subwoofer anymore, or call me late at night complaining! Good luck.
