When you have an amp that can drive them. The high ohm eliminates noise as the resistance is greater then the ambient noise you may hear on lesser systems. There is also a change in sound. Others may be able to describe it better technically but its a density in presentation as I hear it. A feeling your in a vacuum listening to the music in a smaller space however your sound stage is still wide before you as far as instrument separation is concerned. I like it but it may not work well for someone looking for an open, airy presentation. Its something to explore if your able to pick up a 600 ohm and expect "not" to use them exclusively for all your listening needs. To limiting as far as driving them is concerned. Keep in mind these are semi-open when in fact they basically provide no isolation. I can't listen to these if I am around environmental noise since the presentation is dense causing be to concentrate into the music but hearing something outside the cans messes with my brain. Its like watching an intense movie that has your focus but someone is sitting right behind you chewing and slurping. Drives me nuts.
I love their sound but they sit unused at home most of the time due to being open and requiring a good amp.
