    Momentums are only mid-bass, both the HD600 and HD650 have better bass that goes lower. I've sold my HD600 due to a small treble peak that bothered me at times and replaced it with a Ypsilon S1 build, a friend who bought the HD600 took one listen of the Ypsilon and quickly sold the HD600 also. I had though of getting another HD600 in the future but after hearing the Ypsilon I don't see my self getting another HD600. What got me reading about the HD660s was the suggestion that it could be a modified HD700 driver, reviews of the HD660s looks like it corrects some of the HD650 short comings but since I'm one that would take a HD700 over the HD600/650 I'm hoping the HD660s is a blend of the HD700 sound stage and bass with the mids of the HD650 and highs between the HD700 and HD650

    One of my complaints with the 650s was that the bass was a soft and slow, and they could sound muddy - especially with some EDM. In this regard I liked headphones like the DT1990 and T5p.2, but their treble could be a bit harsh. The 660s are quite an improvement over the 650s. The bass is much faster, and they maintain good separation with very dense music. Sub bass is also there - I can hear it in the music, and with AudioCheck's files I can hear bass a bit below 20Hz. I would say that they are actually a pretty good open-back for EDM. They maintain the balanced response of the 650, but they sound faster and less muddled which make them suitable for more types of music.

    I've had the 660 since Monday. Sorry, I haven't owned or heard the HD600. I have owned the X1 and X2, but have sold both. From memory they were quite fun sounding, but not particularly detailed, and not so good when there's a lot going on in the music. I would prefer the 660.

    Edm or metal are better on the hd660s than on the 650? Wich punches harder and goes lower?

    Wich sounds fuller overall?

    Would you say the diference in sound quality and resolution is very noticeable? Stupid to buy the hd650 now?

    Orders are starting to be shipped in US. Getting it tomorrow.

    You might want to cross alps my friend. Come visit good old Germany to get your HD660S.
  11. pietcux
    Probably yes. It is buying history. The HD660S is the future. Listen to you inner voice, you know?
    And sorry no Metal here, only Deep Purple Made in Japan. That sounds better on the HD660S than on the HD650. Bass is faster and cleaner plus better details across the board.

    The difference is sound is very noticeable to me. As was said earlier in the thread, it isn't just about the frequency response, as they are quite similar between the 650 and 660. The 660 has much faster bass, so even if it doesn't go deeper it sounds like it hits harder.

    The 660 doesn't try to give the illusion of more detail be accentuating the treble. They just maintain much better composure and separation across the whole frequency spectrum; the bass sounds faster and tighter and they sound less muddled, so you can follow what's going on in the music.

    Any possible comparisons to a Pre-fazor LCD-2?

    Thanks! :beerchug:

    EDIT: How would these headphones be for gaming?
