Hi guys,

if u have seen the HD600's box..theres 'For Digital' written under the Sennheiser .

and under that its written 'Natural Sound'.

what does For Digital exactly signify in the HD600?

just curious to know.

I'm sure a Senn rep could put a better spin on it, but it's a typical buzz wordy blurb.
Also "Better sound through research" was already taken.

Lets give Senn a little credit here. They have always been honest and straightforward -- I have dealt with the U.S. office. I do not think of them as "slick marketing"

I think they are trying to imply that you can plug them directly in to e.g an iPod dock, a PC sound card, or other digital music appliance.

People think you can do this with street phones, but not big audiophile circumaural phones like the HD600s. Hence the label on the box. They can't say "OK for iPods and MP3 players" since that could be misleading (some won't drive these), but they don't want a desktop system or iPod dock user passing them up.

Hey, they sound better amp'd. Mine are usually plugged into a Head-Direct EF1. But Senn did not want you to look at the box and think of a huge home stereo system only.

Hence the "For Digital".

I can see how "ipod ready" or "for ipod/iphone" can be a smart thing to have on a box.

BUT "for digital" and "mp3 compatible" are nonsense.

yea when products say "ipod/iphone ready", that can be an eye catcher for ppl when shopping for ear/headphones since most ppl have ipods or iphones, but when it says "mp3 compatible", that doesnt really make sense because headphones are made to listen to all sorts of audio..

another way to view is when u buy a box of pizza and on the box it says "for eating". its like...uh..what else is pizza good for?
