The momentum's are pretty nice out of a portable source with no amp. They do benefit but not specifically required. They sound fine out of both my iPod classic and fiio x3

Edit: Of course the 600s are better and I prefer them to my Momentums which is why I'm selling them but they're much easier to drive and a bit more of a pleasant sound.

Don't forget, closed cans get really hot on your head/ears, too! That's my chief complaint, besides the raw sound quality difference.

I had HD 439 and I own two Momentums. The HD 439 has the same sound signature as the Momentum, with a wider stage and more comfy, but much less clarity and fidelity to my ears.

Keep both. Momentum for nighttime and portable use, HD 600 for daytime and home use

Buy the 600 and sell whatever you like least?

Got my pair of HD600s today.  Very pleased with them.  I never had appreciated how "smooth" they actually were until now, when I've a few hours to listen to them.

Not yet but if the Cantate.2, Headfive, Stepdance, and that portable one with the PC USB DAC are any indication (the first and third version, all before the PC-Step), I'm sure I'd like it. Meier amps have really good power supply designs for their price points or purpose (ie portable or desktop), and can supply both voltage and current to nearly any headphone you throw at it, but especially the the HD6x0. They're also reasonably transparent - I once spent an afternoon on the Cantate.2 and every CDP I  tried with it sounded different (with a lot of surprises too - I found a solid state source I hated and kind of loved an entry-level tube source).  Honestly the only reasons why I don't have one is because my Cantate.2 is still fully functional (not that I'd actually trash it if it breaks down) and because I only need one set-up at home and only IEMs on the go.

 

You can get more details on it here:

I currently have Meier dac/amp PCSTEP paired with HD600 and quite happy with sound experience.
Decided to move a bit up though, to Audio GD product Compass 2, so PCSTEP will go on sale in a few days.
