I normally wasn't gonna do this, but after comparing my HD-600's and the 595's for a while, i feel like i should share my impressions on these two headphones. I bought the 600's from another member here, so they are well burned in. I got the 595's about 4 days ago, and since then, they have been burning in non-stop up to this point. Well, when paired up with my TerraTec DMX 6Fire sound 24/96 sound card and with my Corda HA-1 MK II amp (When i had it) i have to say that i prefer the 595's. All the people who had given these cans nothing but praise were dead on. These are great headphones. My impressions on the two cans will sound the same as all the others who have made their impressions on the 600's and the 595's. The 600's have a more spacious, relaxed atmosphere, and the 595's have a more livley, musical side to them. Detail wise, i think they are both the same. Even with the upfront sound of the 595's, they are still extremly detailed. The bass is about the same as well. The 595's are so livley and more upfront than the 600's. If you want to relax and lay in bed with some phones, get the 600's. Not to say that you can't do that with the 595's, but the 600's are better suited for that. The 595's also have a crisp, clean sound compared to the more relaxed, smooth sound of the 600's. I feel that the 595's are the better overall headphone. Like someone said, there isn't one specific thing that stands out with these phones..overall, everything sounds great. I think i finally found my perfect, overall headphone. Thanks to all the people who recommeneded the 595's...i think im satisifed for nowCan't wait for my PPA to get here...the 595's will sound that much better.
