I haven't seen any actual review's on head-fi fo this can, so I thought i'd write one. Please be kind as this is my first review.
Build and Comfort
These things feel like a tank in the head. I highly doubt that these will break on you anytime soon. Unless you are a person who enjoys putting his headphones through hell. Honestly to break these you would need to stretch them pretty hard. These can are also pretty comfy. I have worn these for up to 5 hours at a time and they never feel extremely awkward. The only problems I have had are that they sit pretty loose on your head, and the fact the your ears sweat. Other than that there very comfy, though not as comfy as the HD 598's.
The bass on these things are very nice! After burn in the bass is very tight and rarely leaks into the mids. Before burn in the bass was pretty boomy though. The bass also has a very nice impact, nothing that will crush your head but much better impact then my sennheiser HD 598's. The subbase is also nice, nothing amazing, but enough to keep me satisfied.
The mids are also very nice and smooth. They are not very prominent in these cans which is cool with me as i have the HD598's for that. Sadly when i'm not using a proper amp, or the ipod cable that came with these cans the mids are kinda muffled sounding, and the lyrics sound very boxed in.
Sadly thge highs are the weak spot of these can's. I don't know what it is, they just dont sound the greatest with jazz and classical. That's not saying they sound bad, they just sound suppar to the d5000's in this area.
I was shocked that these cans require an amp. They are advertised as a pair of headphones that can play out of a ipod and the 25ohm's also suggest that but nope. I don't know what Denon did but when coming out of an ipod the bass losses a lot of it's impact, and the mids don't sound very rich, like they do coming out of a amp.
Altogether the d600 is a good sucessor to both the d2000's and 5000's and I would happily recommend them to anyone interested in a closed sub $500 headphone!
Hope you guy's enjoyed :D, tell me what I could do to improve. Thanks!
P.S I'll add pic's later
