Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread - Page 423

post #6331 of 8702

I'm loving them so much. To clarify: I'm watching the movie with the HD600. They are pretty special. I've only heard them in a Sennheiser showroom before this. 

 

It honestly makes me want to just get rid of most of my collection apart from the LCD2 and these. 

 

I think I might donate my D5000 to my GF, she loves them.

 

But hey, let's not go too crazy..

 

RE: bass. I thought I would be wanting a lot more, but I'm actually quite satisfied. I can see why everyone calls these "natural"!

 

@mrAdrian I sold two things today.. I'm charging at your tubes like a bull at a gate.

 

A nice tube amp and these cans would pretty much be my end-game. 

 

(At least, I'd like to think so)

Yeah I love these headphones too. Now time to extensively compare with my Q701s, although right now its very positive. I love both too much!

I would really not mind a direct trade with your D5000 XDD if I not already own one!

You are an evil temptress, but a damn good one.

 

:p

 

I'm really amazed at the sound-stage and accuracy in the imaging of these cans. Superb.

I feel like such an idiot for being a member of this site for this long, and not owning these earlier. 

I know that feeling. I avoided the HD600/650 for so long...what a waste of time that was!

Just me or is this headphone very ugly?  I'm sure it sounds great it's just I'm thrown off by how it looks.  Even if I werent' to use it in public I'd still feel self-conscious haha.

Uhm.. yeah, just you. And I guess it's subjective. Unassuming, professional looks for me. Like Thinkpad laptops.  Someone prefers pink Beats...

They are beautiful set of cans for my eyes :rolleyes:

I think it's just the grills.  If they did something like Audezes or Beyer DT990 grills then they'd be gorgeous.  Those grills are just so....meh

Arriving tomorrow, waiting patiently :D

post #6342 of 8702

I think the marble finish is ugly as is the skinny cable & mini plug.

To me the HD650 is a better looking can but I much prefer the HD600 when it is on my head...where it belongs!

post #6343 of 8702

Any way to mod them and put the Drivers in a different sennheiser model.  I prefer the look of the 558s, 598s

I don't. I think the HD580/600/650 are great looking - reminiscent of the HE-60/90 - and better looking than the HD700/800.

I just don't like the marble finish on the HD600!

Gutted! I got my HD 600's delivered to my wife's work today and... She forgot to bring them home! I've been very quiet!
FWIW I think the 600's look superb. It's obviously subjective. They are not intended to be used outside. I reckon that you would have to spend £1,000 to better these headphones.
