Amazing headphones and a good price

exactly the same driver as the hd650 but this one is a cleaner, more neutral signature. This is the one to go for really. I even prefer the hd600's sound over the hd700.

I haven't had the pleasure of the hd700s yet what didn't you like?

Owned these for 6 months a few years back. Couldnt understand their popularity. Gave it 6 months to bed in but just had to sell it. I didnt dislike them but for the money they were hardly better than cheap headphones. I then had the opportunity to purchase the Beyerdynamics T1 (RRP £1k) at 50% off. Gave these T1s 6 months and again could understand the fuss. Sold them later for £650.

Now just listen to In Ears. Currently sporting the Westone UM3x (same 50% discount).

All these high end headphones arent really worth the money.

The FR/signature didn't feel as flat as the HD600s. I could forgive it if they sounded exciting, but they didn't, quite the opposite. Personal opinion of course.

What is your Audio Source ? That will obviously have a major impact on sound.

Well HD650 feels much more comfy to me. But at this price, Hd600

The shape, materials and pads are identical on both the hd600 & hd 650, so I'm not sure what you're comparing. perhaps the one you tried were different ages, eg. one had been worn in a bit, relieving some clamp pressure. Physically the only difference is the colour, the parts are interchangeable.

Please no-one buy these for use on public transport.

Good price! One of Senn's best set of cans.

I would rather go with AKG K702 than these.

I use them all the time and I don't care about other people moaning but I do reduce the volume

Thanks for posting. Bought a pair for some relaxed evening listening.

Seems to be becoming a bit cheaper to be an HD600 owner. Genuine Sennheiser replacement earpads now £35 from Thomann or allegedly decent quality from ebay for just over £20 with delivery :

Even some modestly priced amps and amp/dacs are reckoned to do 'em some justice :

I specially bought a £2500 Shanling t2000 valve CD player with a £1000 bayerdynamic headphone amp. Could not get it to match an average hifi/speaker set up

you must be deaf or not listening to the right genre and style of music to appreciate the quality of a pair of decent headphones

i can tell the difference between my fidelio x1, akg q701, hd 558, hd25-1 ii and my HD600 easily

they all sound different and the soundstage of the Q701 is simply amazing, i love the bass on the x1's and the vocals on the HD600's, hd25 are my portable can and my hd558 is my gaming can (powered by a mixamp).

i have an AUNE T1 and soon a Schiit Vali to use with both my mixamp and AUNE.
