Wanted:
WTB: Sennheiser HD600

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Hi there fellow Head-Fiers, I'm looking to buy a pair of Sennheiser HD600's. I tried these out today while on break from school and fell in love. Not much people selling them lately, but if anyone has a pair for sale, please let me know!

You should listen to some Beyerdynamic DT990's ( 32 Ohm for your portable player, 250 Ohm for amped use ).  I prefer them over the HD-600.

 

I will keep an eye out for you.

Well, I compared the Shure srh940's, beyer dt880/600, akg q701 and hd600 all together today. And my preference went out to the sennheisers. I thought I'd like the shures the best but I guess the touch of warmth on the hd600's are more pleasing. and they are definitely more comfortable.

 

I heard dt990's are really bassy? I was looking for something a bit more bright

Still looking!

Have you tried AKG K701's or Q701's?  They are both really comfortable and strong competition for th HD-600.

 

The DT990 looks really bassy according to the frequency response, but honestly I find it really well balanced with the mids and highs.  If you are looking for something bright the AKG's suggested above will be more your style.

 

I hope you find what you are looking for.

Unfortunately I was actually looking for the AKG's, and when I tried out the Q701's at an audio shop, I was mildly disappointed. Then the clerk said to try the HD600 and I honestly felt they blew them away... except in separation and soundstage. I then asked to try the SRH940's and was pretty impressed for a closed headphone, and for its price especially. And for the dt880/600, I tried a 2003 model, and liked them very much; not sure how they compare to 2005's+.

 

I didn't expect to like the sennheiser's, coming from senn IE8 iem's, I figured sennheiser had a darker sound sig; but the hd600 proved me wrong. I'm guessing the HD650 are darker, so that's why I ruled them out.
