Can't go wrong with ANYTHING by Hans Zimmer. I really love the "Gladiator" OST - sounds absolutely fabulous on HD600/650!!!

 

Lisa Gerrard vocals, YUMMM.

My favorite work by Hans Zimmer is the soundtrack to Inception. A powerful and simply massive music that sounds better and better as you turn up the volume!

Oh, the Angels & Demons recording sessions sounds brilliant. One of my favourites from that studio. The dynamics come through brilliantly on the HD600. Between the Man of Steel and Angels & Demons score you might be surprised when comparing 'God Save Us' from A&D to some cues on MOS... you'll see what I mean... it might change your entire view on the MOS score with it's striking similarities but then again most modern HZ scores are homogenized from that era :D It's worth noting HZ's engineer Alan Meyerson and I believe HZ himself are keen on the HD6x0 so it makes sense that the scores sound grand on these.

I listen to the inception soundtrack ever day at least once or twice, it sounds fantastic on the fournier and HD600

My favorite Zimmer track is Science and Religion - it shows what a great composer he is - organic growth of material and a delicate sense of tonality. He is really awesome. I wish I had his studio...

Is there any IEM that is on par with HD600 but with lower price? Maybe within $100-150? Plan to let go my Amperior because I prefer Shure SE 215 when I'm traveling due to it's size.

TDK BA200 is in that price range if you can find them. Give them a shot.

Any cable suggestions for HD-600, the original came in the box is way too thin and mess that got tangled all the time.

Another vote for the HD650 cable. It's very cheap too!

I use the Cardas cable with my HD600 - but I have to say even the stock cable didn't bother me performance wise....

I keep my HD600's in an easy to access box when not used. When I put the cans in there, I fold the cable back and forth and no longer have this problem. It used to get tangled too often, not much anymore. Or as others suggested get an HD-650 cable, works well on the HD600, but be aware that it terminates in the larger 6.3mm plug and if you use a device/DAP with 3.5mm  jack, you will need to use the bulky adapter.

I find my GR07 comparable to my HD600. The HD600 is a little warmer with stronger mid-bass. The GR07 has sub-bass.They are both pretty neutral overall.

 

lendmeurears.com has them for $100 currently (the GR07 classic).

I would not say they are a like but for and IEM with smooth mids, good bass, nice detail and soundstage the ZERO Audio Carbo Tenore blew my mind.
