And, lets agree that the HD580 looks better! I really don't like the faux marble paint job on the 600s. The replacement drivers are the same part number anyway.

I can't believe that they still make a newer version of them, in the same horrid green. Mine had a clamping force that could crack open a coconut. The earpads were oil filled rubber, I can still remember when one of them leaked on me, :mad:. Back then nobody argued about cables and I would have given my left ear to have something like an HD600.

Below is a picture of the new version, it looks eerily the same.

 


I had that headphone when I was a young teen. The fluid filled cushions really kept out any other sounds. At the time, that feature was important to kid with 7 siblings and a father that did not appreciate my taste in music. Really put you in your own world. These days, open phones are my choice.

Well, I don't believe in any Gods so there is that. After reading some posts, I guess headphones are close to religion for some. :dt880smile:

I eventually sold the stock 580 based on looks alone.

So my point being, I think you should consider a used 580 as well.  That should be much easier to do for less than $200-250.




Very good thoughts on the 600 and 580. That's a really good idea in all honesty. But I have one quick question, what's the difference of the 598 vs. 580?

Is anyone here running their 600's straight out of a phone or do you all use amps?

I occasionally will run them straight out of my iPad, but they sound like a pale shadow of what they can sound like off of my WA7. Dramatic difference.

I'll sell my HD 600s, without box, great condition with all new pads, for $260 shipped. I have HD 580s and would rather have the money right now.

I best setups for head-fiers with tight budget are HD580 and Little Dot I+ or Akg Q701 with Schiit Vali. Believe me or not, first option sounds far greater than many expensive setups I've heard.
