    I got velour/stock pads. Haven't tried Dekoni on the HD6XX.

    I don't believe sound quality can be improved/changed significantly by swapping pads (thicker or thinner) so not really into experimenting swapping pads.

    I only had a chance to compare the HD6xx to the HD800 I own. Different beasts, the HD650 got more bass emphasis but lack in mid range clarity and sound a little muffled due to this. For the price, I grabbed a second pair in this drop too.

    Has anybody from the 2nd drop received a shipping confirmation yet???

    I just received my shipping notice from MassDrop. Shipping via FedEx. Early Christmas for me!
    Tuneslover and Shane D like this.

    My pair arrived today! Hopefully no one stole it off my front porch. Looking forward to putting the 6XX through its paces. I’d be lying though if i said it doesn’t have a high hurdle to make an impression against the E-MU Teak and the Focal Elear

    Mine arrived today and I'm very happy with them so far.... They pair well with my Nobsound NS-08E hybrid tube amp which is pretty good given it is a pretty cheap amp (but plenty powerful). The clamp force is a bit much at this point but I expect it will loosen up in good time.

    I heard somewhere that there won't be any more HD 6XX drops. Has anyone heard that from an official source, or was it only a rumor?

    A rumor at best. Massdrop has stated that they were planning to keep the HD 6XX a regular drop as long as possible right before the 2nd drop started.

    I've had mine for a week and found the the clamping force to border on painful out of the box. There is a fix that involves bending the adjusting metal bit (and only the metal bit--do NOT bend the headband itself) that extends from the headband to the ear cup. After applying this a number of times, the 6XX is reasonably comfortable (if still far from the sublime comfort of the HD700). Since there is a chance of cracking the headband if this is done incorrectly, I strongly advise you to do some research before attempting this; there is a least one short video on YouTube demonstrating this. <a href=""></a>

    Yeah the clamping force is horrific so I'm letting my new 6XX stretch out a bit on a stand before listening.

    Fortunately for me the fit is perfect. My question is if you stretch it out on a stand, would that flatten the ear pads?
