Yes, haha. I thought they wouldn't since, y'know that's what the FSP is for. But no, they're far too neutral and laid-back(ish) for me.

Oh are they? I assumed the only fully closed one from them was the alpha dog, since the Mad Dog and MDP, still resemble Fostex T50RP on the cup.

Yea I almost bought them also but then saw the FR graphs and realized it was too neutral for myself also and went ahead and got the 1540s instead (and... then... I got the TH-900s lol).

Oh how were those? I Looked at them a lot before (not yet) deciding on the Mad Dogs. (and eventually Mad Dog Pro)

I would best describe them as a much more neutral version of the D600 but it still has that fun bass hump.  Meaning the mids and highs (mostly the highs) aren't as recessed.  See the following link to compare the Frequency Graphs of the D600 vs 1540.  http://graphs.headphone.com/graphCompare.php?graphType=0&graphID[]=3911&graphID[]=4273&scale=30

 

**Don't be intimidated by that bass increase on the 1540s, you don't even hear the difference.  What i mean by that is the D600s still sound more bass heavy than the 1540 even though the above graph says otherwise.**

Damn you, now I'm having second thoughts on getting the 1540s.

 

The reason I find the Mad Dogs extremely appealing is because I can upgrade them. The Alpha dog is easily an end-game headphone for a lot of people, including me, so being able to just "upgrade" your headphone, rather than selling your old ones and buying something new and completely different...is a bit...meh.

 

But the Shure look more comfortable, and have a far better build. Would you say they're far ahead than D600 in terms of SQ though? Barely improved, or what?

They are far ahead of the D600s.  I really enjoy the mids and highs more with the 1540s (the bass is about the same to me but with the mids and highs more present it will appear to have less bass at first listen) which makes them so much better for watching TV, anime, or movies on my setup/rig.  Again this is my opinion so keep that in mind.  I would suggest buying them from www.headphone.com and if you don't like them you can return them in 30 days.

I would suggest buying them and finding out for youself :).  I would say yes thought but that's my opinion.  You can always return them if you don't like them.

The thing is that i try to save money for an amp for my HD600 and DT990s pros. I wanted closed back headphones, but i am not sure what's wrong with these headphones and the -68% discount.

Gotcha!  It seems like a good price to me.

For 130€ this is a no-brainer. I got them for 230€ last year and THAT was a good price for the performance they deliver in my opinion. If you are on the hunt for a uncritically to drive and fun headphone (they do really great on my notebooks onboard-sound but improve drastically when switching to my FiiO X5), get them :)

They sell pretty frequently for $240 new on eBay. I'd be surprised if 130€ was for new, it's most likely open box. Even then, that's a great deal.

No, new and unopend. Sold directly by amazon.de (no warehouse-deal!). They claim to have 18 left in stock.

Yeah, I was talking about the same deal. I think I'll buy a headphone amp first since I already have two good pair of headphones. I wish this deal won't end soon.

Hi guys, sorry for bothering but after seeing a pair of used but in mint condition d600's for 120 euros it was impossible not too get interested...

 

My last headphones have been the white box ath m50, sennheiser hd 25, momentum over ear, mdr 1r and sony mdr v6.

 

By using this headphones i reached a conclusion i hate too coloured and too warm sound....

 

Here are my findings...

 

....the mdr 1rs to my ears sounded muffled and lacked bass impact. I love and still have the hd25 but they sound too confined, i liked the bass of the ath m50s but did not like the recessed mids and plasticky and unnatural treble.

 

I loved lovooooooed the sennheiser momentums sound (and build), a bit boring for edm but i loved it.....

 

....did not loved the confort of the momentums though and sold them....  the mix of on and over ear killed my ears...

 

...So basically i am now trying to find a replacement for the over ear momentums.... at fist i anted them to be portable, but now i dont mind at all if they are strict to home use.

 

I listen mostly to some indie, pop, rock and edm and i my 2 favourite headphones so far are indeed the over ear momentums and the hd25s, they were like the perfect to each other.... Having described my preferences do you guys think this denon d600 would suit me and would also be a nice complement to my hd25 like the momentum was?

 

Many people keep saying the late d2000's were perfect for me but now its impossible to get the... (i also had a pair of aurvana live's, i found them nice sounding but nothing to scream about, a bit loose bass and a bit too warm at times, also at higher not very high volumes it started to sound more pronounced on the highs and distorted)....

 

By the way....I also hated the k550 by the way, weird fit, lacking bass and too much treble (to me ot sounded steryle).... Right now i only have the hd25 and the v6.... 

 

Hope you guys can help.... Cheers... :)
