Just how long was the life span was this 'King of Headphones'?

 

Curious


That's a great question!

 

In my opinion, I think headphones really didn't matter for a long, long time and the HD580 was King of the hill. There were always a few high end headphones out there, but they were a niche market of limited appeal. Then, the iPod came along a few years ago and all of a sudden, headphones came back in vogue. More people became passionate about headphones, and naturally, a new generation of audiophiles were ready to come on board. Finally, there was a large market for "high end" $1000+ headphones.

 

The game changed, and Sennheiser wants to play. That's really all there is to it.

Hmm... I just noticed a sudden bump in ranking of HD600 to #9. It's good and all, but can anyone here tell me how ranking system works?

Where did you find the rankings?

I wouldn't take any of the rankings too seriously.  They skip numbers, and have multiples of the same number.  Where's number two and three, or six and eleven?  I have no idea how they figure them out, it may just be some simple math with who owns it and who had it.  Or not.

It's probably cause you're looking at over the air headphones only, while the total list is all headphones including IEM's.

2 is the Earsonics SM3

3 is IE8

 

I assume it's some formula involving average rating and number of ratings. I would take it with a grain of salt because a lot of times an item will become really really hot on this board and get tons of high rankings. I mean the ATH-M50 is #5, #3 for over the ear.  Not saying it's bad but it definitely isn't the third greatest headphone of all time, probably not even in terms of value.

Any comment on how they sound out of the FIIO E17 yet?

post #1180 of 17154
I liked these more than my old HD650s.
However, I understand why everyone calls the 650s 'refined' when comparing the two.

Great headphones though.

Ah, yes, probably.

I've been really enjoying the relative neutrality of the 600 with my Woo 3 lately while doing needle drops. Definitely a different beast from the AKG 601 or my previous use of the Beyer 990/600ohm in the same setup.

post #1183 of 17154

Yeah, I know that numbers are not all-important but it does makes me feel warm and cozy inside to see the HD600 in the top ten. It's been more than a decade and this headphones is still garnering so much attention. There must be some magic in it.

Hmm, how does the K601 compare to the HD600?

post #1185 of 17154

If I would go from my current HD 595 to HD 600, would it be an all-round upgrade?
