should i be sad that i paid 600 for mine? still love these cans thought

i am thinking of maybe getting a pair of HD 600 too since they are very natural sounding. but is it worth it if i already love the S2?

Further reduction on Amazon UK. The 660S2 is now £439.
Well if you're in the UK...like new refurbs at £354 direct from Sennheiser, 2 year warranty.

Are the 660S2 worth grabbing if I already own the Clear OG?

I think so. I own both and they sound very different.

Thanks! :) Been wanting to add a pair of Sennheisers to the collection.

How do you like the 660S2 and how do they differ if I may ask?

Well the Clear certainly wins in bass and dynamics. They are my favourite headphone.
But I do like variety and keep several sets around.
The S2's do have a little bit of bass and a really smooth overall sound. For fun, I even put them on my my iFi and give it a shot bass boost.

One thing they have in common is flexibility. Both of them sound good on all my amps (hybrid, SS, OTL tube and OTC tube).
The HS660S2's are also pretty easy to drive for a 300 Ohm 'phone.

My music is new rock, classic rock and horn jazz for the most part. Both do all very well.

I have both, and I would say yes. Different sound signature. I love my 660s2, my Grado 3000x, and my Focal Clear OG. I have a LOT of headphones, but will never part with these three...

You sound like me, just substitute GH2's for 3000X's. :smile:

Swapped in a higher power module from what I usually run (with IEMs) in my DAP to try out with the S2 and it sounds really good. Not quite as fast and tight as it is with the Jot2, but still very enjoyable. This is fast becoming one of my favorite headphones.The 109 Pro might have a slight edge in terms of musicality (and bass!), but no need to EQ the S2 is a huge plus.
