Really? Sometimes I even feel like puking from the amount of detail I can hear .. not exaggerating.

Really a lot of people think one of the few weakness of the hd 600 is the lack of detail :/

Yeah it's real detail vs. apparent detail. HD600 has more laid back treble compared to those other headphones that push the details in your face, which is impressive at the expense of realism. A realistic headphone has all the details there when you listen for them but don't exaggerate them.

So I really want some HD600 or 650's. I really like the sound signature. I am ok on the styling. My primary concern is build quality. I do not want to spend $200-300 on headphones where the headband will break or crack heavily with regular use. 

 

Am I SOL? Or are my fears out of place?

The headband should hold up fine with normal use, just don't bend it too far or stretch it out as you would a metal headband. In any case, literally everything is modular and replaceable, be it headband, grilles, padding, even the drivers. So in this sense they are a much better value than other headphones that you have to throw away when one thing breaks.

I don't see how you could break the headband on these, unless you wanted to.

I have a pretty big head, so when I pull them off they get stretched a little. if I could secure a cheap broken set, I would probably build myself a custom metal headband.

Well, since I came all the way from Etymotics (ER6, ER4S). It's kinda a big change for me.

Little Dot MKIII, Line-out from Titanium HD. I guess you are right, it's not apparent or kinda vague. Of course I am not saying there is no detail. 

 

Maybe I am just used to how these detail-oriented headphones like ER4, DT880 sound, switching to HD600 is a big step of change in terms of mid and details.

That shouldn't be a problem. The only time I heard of someone breaking the headband was when they tried to bend it flat to reduce the clamping force.

Etys and Beyers are pretty treble-happy and push the details in your face, so you wouldn't get the same level of apparent detail with something like the HD600 that has more laid back treble. But if you listen for the details they should be there, just not as prominent.

I find my 600s non fatiguing because of the treble presentation.  I can listen for hours.  They're a great match for my ears.  YMMV

post #3703 of 17154

Wondering if anyone has had a chance to listen to the ma900 side-by-side with the hd600. Let me know your thoughts.

Does detail come from the headphones only in a headphone system?

Or    does it come from the total package, source dac etc.????

I have an analog source and I have a lot more detail with that than

I do with my cheap and I acknowledge cheap CD player.

Every step in the chain is important, the HPs can not present what is not there.
