Welcome to the #IE600Club ! FYI they will likely ship on the 24th, or darn close to it.

The resolution on these is insane! Also, another observation vs IE900…….
The stock silicone made the IE900 sound to open and distant, I initially liked it but over time I found the stock foam to be more natural and balanced.
The opposite can be said for the IE600. The stock foam makes things a little close and intense, the silicone on the other hand is nicely balanced and natural sounding.
So far, IE600 with stock silicone > IE900 with stock foam. That goes for SQ and comfort.

I just received my pair 3 hours ago, yet another early observation vs IE900 (lol) - IE600 does sound more realistic, but for my personal taste, I think I prefer the bass on the IE900, it has just a bit more impact on the eardrums which is quite fun with the right music.

Overall I like the IE600 so far, they are more natural than fun. Going to listen to them more later this evening.

I’ve been looking at the Holocene and IE600 to see which I’d prefer. Is there anything else you see between them? Have you listened again and are you still fatigued?
I test out ie600 at shop recently again to convince myself to get it, but it still doesn't suit my taste. I prefer clarity, wider soundstage, more than ton of sub bass.

I still prefer the much wider soundstage, BA clarity sound on Holocene. It also is mmcx which I can easily play around with 3rd party cable.

But I do have to admit ie600 sub bass is tune very nice and impactful, cos it's a Dynamic driver.

I guess for the high price of ie600 now, I can stick with Holocene. I will turn to fiio fd5 for bassy song, it cost much less.

What would be the ETA on pre-orders placed via the Canadian site?
Unless they sold out of the available quantity, May 24th.

@ericpalonen are Global E are real distributor?

I’ve just placed my order and now feel worried as it didn’t come back from Sennheiser and was Global E. Did get scammed?

I can’t wait to listen to these IEMs.
