Yes, but not me.

I'm going back & forth between the X1 & the Sennheiser HD600 & I'm preferring the X1 more. 

The HD600 seems to have cleaner vocals & better 3D accuracy in instrumentals (imaging?)

Yet the X1 has a much better soundstage, better bass & overall better musically.

You`re not the first one ;)

Reading up more reviews, it definitely seems like this is one of the better headphones for soundstage & bass.

My #1 & #2 things I look for in headphones are soundstage & bass.

 

I still would like something with a larger soundstage (it's never big enough for me) & slightly better mids though.

The Sennheiser HD800 is waaaaay out of my price range & headphones reviews I read with bigger soundstages seem to always lack bass.

If you haven't bought this, it's a great bargain for your exact tastes actually. These cans have great sound stage and quality bass.

Yeah I own these, going back & forth between these & HD600 on a Asgard 2 amp.

 

I'd say I like these headphones 70% more than the HD600. Somethings like vocal & pure instrumental songs are better on the HD600.

Yet the X1 have a more enjoyable & funnier listening experience.

They're absolutely stellar cans for my electronic library. The HD600s are better overall for me with just about everything else though. And then I've got the HE-560 above that with even more resolution.
