And those two sheets and compare - especially look at:
- FREQUENCY RESPONSE (no peak around 3.5khz with 600ohm version suggesting a little bit smoother sound in that department = highs)
- 30HZ SQUARE WAVE (significantly more square-like look of 600ohm version suggesting a littel bit tighter bass)
- 300HZ SQUARE WAVE (reduced ringing with 600ohm version suggesting a bit smoother and precise sound overall, could image a bit better)
- %THD+noise (significantly lower with no significant inconsistencies with 600ohm suggesting cleaner sound overall)
- IMPULSE RESPONSE (let's say they are the same so both will be equally "fast")
Those differences will be definitely small but expect a bit cleaner and tighter bass response along with cleaner and smoother highs... A LITTLE BIT, not much!
Depends on how much you want to spend... But 600ohm version is better, definitely. Drivers seem to be better controlled, simply.
Thanks heaps for that! To be honest the difference doesn't seem huge bar that 3khz spike in the 250s and a little more ringing but I know if I buy the 250s and like them I'm always gonna wonder what the 600s would've been like, think I'll save and get a set too, to be honest I don't think I'm ready to jump up past the high-mid-tier because of diminishing returns and I think its hard to beat the price to quality ratio of cans like the hd600's, k702s and hopefully the 880's
