They're easy to drive.

 

There, I just did. ;P

Haha I'm just playin' with ya. Its all relative. Compared to things like the M80 or ATH-M50 they are hard to drive. But compared to other high impedance headphones they are surprisingly easy to drive.

I still maintain they sounded good on my basic dell computer speaker unit.. that's my story and i'm sticking to it :P

Nothing close to good as now but it was better than both of my audio-technica's (which i think are pretty decent) just plugged into the computer speakers.

"Fairly easy to drive" meaning the Audioengine D1, a USB powered device, does not have a problem driving my 600s. Again, I pointed out that I did not have much to compare it to.

The HD600s are easy to drive: they sound pretty good out of most sources, and very good out of a significant portion.

The HD600s are hard to drive: they scale more, higher, further than any headphones I've ever had. You will keep buying more powerful and more expensive amps in pursuit of that next level of performance until you finally come full circle and land where you should have started in the first place: at the very cheap and unbeatable Bottlehead Crack.

HAHA. Totally agree now that i've experienced the crack and become a believer, I see absolutely no reason to even consider getting anything else... that's as good as it gets for me for awhile.. I'm sure something out there could improve upon it slightly but there isn't much room to go from it.

When you put on songs and bathe in the music, become enveloped within the music and simply enjoy and get lost in the music... what more can you can ask for.

I even find myself listening to songs a few times in a row because i didn't want it to end, basically i'm enjoying the music again and excited to explore the music again, which is what i wanted and which is all you can ask for imo.

(that will be the last time i go on and on about praising the bottlehead, however.. haha. I don't want to turn things into an ad or make people feel they are forced to go in that direction because not everyone has the means to go that route)

As a former K712pro owner, now a new HD600 owner, I think it's funny that AKG tried so hard to make the k702 sound like the HD600's, except the result sounds more like the offspring of a 600 & 650, albeit with two heads; one attractive and one not so, sadly.  A strange headphone.  Love the 600's though!

Got this coming in the mail mainly to satisfy my curiosity. I hope they are complimentary to my HE500s.

Can someone advise if they are able to be driven adequately from my Audio Gd 15.32 or iBasso PB2s?

Easily, very easily. My NFB 5.32 drove them to very loud volumes at around 11 o clock, I listened to it even before that a lot of the time. I believe both yours and mine are the same power output.

Thanks it's heartening to know my purchase won't suck more from the wallet in order to drive them properly. Does it scale well? How much better sound would I get over the audio Gd if I upgraded my amp and is it worth running them off speaker taps the way I run my HE500s
post #4196 of 8274

I think 600's are very amp dependent.  Xcan V 8=not good.  Schitt Asgard= very good.  There may be better, but this is the end product for me.  Where did the notion that the K702 or 01 for that matter was an attempt to sound like the 600 come from.  I have both the 701 and the 600.  While they have very different sound signatures, I like both a lot.  Along with my RS1's I am set for a long time.

Interesting! Glad I don't need to buy it :)

+1.  The HD600's are not hard to drive at all.  When I am in hotels, I've found that the JDS Cmoy is a perfectly acceptable substitute for my desktop setup.

I agree that a Cmoy will power them decently.

Guys, another annoying question.:D I wonder how much would you rate HD600 bass if compared to HD650? Let's say out of 5, how much is HD600 and HD650? I hope those who owned and tested both can share with me. Just now I listened to Trampoline (feat. 2 Chainz) - Tinie Tempah (Foobar> Wasapi> UD100> FA-003) and I realized sometime more bass is a good thing too. :D Or should I just boost the bass from equalizer next time?
