We'll see how the new he560 does.  I'm looking forward to that one.  still probably keep the 600 either way.

 

The HD600 holds its own against the HE560. I preferred my HD600 in most regards when I had a chance to compare them. There are few headphones that are as reliable as the HD600 in terms of comfort, build, and being a neutral reference.

More than 1190 ones.

Seems quite available. Price is competitive.

If anyone's interested in a custom 12 foot silver poison toxic cable for HD650/600/580, PM me. I have it and I'd rather spend the money I could get for selling it on a crack amp for my HD650s.

 

It's in great condition and sounds very good :)

Hey guys, FINALLY, I join HD600 club, after thinking, with hesitation and considering for about a year, considering will I be wasting money since I already have HD6650.

And guess what ....  IT'S A REVELATION .... HD600 sounds fantastic!!! 

I think I like HD600 a little more than HD650.  The mid is, just there and honest. 

The bass, is just right, not ALWAYS there, dynamic, fast and never overwhelming. 

Treble is just right, never bright, never harsh.

HD600 capture different kind of detail than HD650.  HD650 may be more detail in the mids?  HD600 is more detail in the bass and treble.  Did I say gorgeous mids?

 

I am very very happy ............

Glad to read that you enjoy them!!! Were you usong the stock HD600 cable? Could you try using the HD650 cable and compare?

I have 600s with a 650 cable.  I only bought it because my 600 cable shorted and the 650 cable is heavier along with being less expensive.  No difference in sound to my ears.

Yes, i use stock, unfortunately i do not like to unplug and plug cables, i am afraid the connection might have problem after awhile.

I like lighter cable actually.

As my musical preferences have shifted over the years (and my hearing aged too) and after more than decade of enjoying my HD 600, I have decided to switch to a darker/fatter/mellower headphones - HD 650. Will see how it pairs with my Schiit stack - I think it should be just perfect! My trusty old 600s were just sold to a fellow head-fier, they will be missed for sure. New 650s are on their way here (grabbed them for 419,00 on Amazon)!

 

Glad I'm still in Sennheiser family and will stay there forever, I think!

 

PS: guess it's not really an opposite.. just a bit different flavor of the same.

^ Thanks.

 

I am surprised to see how HD600 and HD650 sound almost identical out of my JVC TV headphone out, but a world different out of my Lehmann BCL.

I'll see how they compared out of my Vali.  HD650 sounds beautiful through Vali.

Tuco, do you feel safe plugging HD600 to Schiit Lyr. 

I still remember some sensitive headphone driver blew up caused by the mighty Lyr. 

What do you think?

I'd just plug when it's off to be safe... And then, when it's plugged, you can turn the amp on or off anytime without issues, as it has a muting relay.

No worries at all with the Lyr.  I unplug before powering it off, but that's just habit.  The Lyr sounds great paired with the 600s IMO.

This topic has been probably already discussed but I didn't find any accurate answer. What do you guys think about pairing my HD600 with a Fiio X5. And how much percentage of the potential of the HD600 would I be using while driving it with the X5. Does it worth it ? Thank you.

I've had my HD600s the longest so far in my collection. I've gone through and parted with countless others that technically should be superior (HD800, D7000/D5000, LCD2, JH13pro) but time and time again, I find myself unable to part with the HD600. They just seem to nail everything for me. Just purchased a Schiit Lyr recently and find them that much more better too! Can't see myself parting with these at all.
