Super Comfortable!!
These headphone are currently my best headphones. I use these everyday for all of my daily needs such as gaming, listening to music, and YouTube. The sound quality is amazing and has very good clarity and a surprising amount of base considering that the headphones are of an open back design. The best part about these headphones in my opinion is that they are incredibly comfortable. You can wear these all day long and have no issues with ear fatigue.

Hard to beat at sub 500 range
Paired with a SET amp (DHT would be better but my non-DHT SET amp is more than enough), this thing slams hard, beautiful vocals and sparkly non-fatiguing treble without the filter pads

Punch above!
These headphones punch way above their price category. I was surprised to hear the clarity and non fatiguing treble presentation, rivalling more expensive headphones like the Focal Clear. Not quite HD800S level, but on the plus side this has better bass. The build is excellent and the cable connectors are also quite interesting, albeit hard to find after market options for. The unique Nitinol headband is worth experiencing as well. Back to the sound. For around $500, does this sound better than say, the Sennheiser HD660S. Well, No. But that is missing the point. Sound is not better or worse. I mean, sometimes it is, but generally decent headphones have flavours. These headphones have a very mouthwatering, enjoyable flavour to them, without being overpowering in any one aspect of the sound. The other advantage is that these will sound better as your gear improves, so there's some scalability to be had as well. For $400 on a deal, these would be hard to pass up and serve as a great entry to the higher end.

Dan Clark makes good headphones
See the title. They're good. I've heard better and I've heard a lot worse. For $500 and under, there's not much I would really prefer to this, though.

Phenomenal Sound.
Great headphones, well worth the cost. Wonderful sound stage and one of the most comfortable headphones I have ever put on.

For me, the best headphone at this price level.
Purchased these to add quality headphones to my system. After considering the Sundara and Edition XS, I went for the better design and build quality of the Drop Aeon X. I'm impressed with the engaging sound, the lightness and comfort. I can enjoy wearing these for hours with no fatigue. The Aeons deliver great tonality and detail even when playing at modest volumes. Love these cans!

Much better than my HD600s
Positives: Almost everything Negatives: Only that the spring metal headband resonates if the headphones are knocked or even touched in any way. Not an issue if your not touching them or hitting the cable, but some stiff foam extruded over the wires at the top would solve this minor issue. I have a warm head, so I sometimes find ear pads a bit warm. That's it, and those two mean little once you're listening as you get transported away. I have a Topping DX7Pro driving my HD600s in balanced config and my Aeons are single ended (balanced to come later). I have both EQed with Equalizer APO to match the Harman curve with some minor custom tweaks, so they should sound very similar. In some ways they do, in that they are both great to listen to with plenty of detail and an evenness of tone that means you can listen all day. BUT, I can hear much more with the Aeons and even more important than the extra info, is that the Aeons make the music much more fun that the HD600s. At their price point, the Drop HD6XX are a no-brainer and a great bargain (assuming they sound like my std HD600s). They just can't compete with the Aeons in any musical area. At twice the price of the HD6XX, the Aeon Open X are also a no-brainer, and I couldn't be happier.

I seee… currently a HD58X owner and Im still debating on should I buy HD6XX (I have listened and enjoy it) or Open X (I couldnt get the chance to listen and I couldnt utilize the refund benefits since I live in SEA)

I had HD580s before my HD600s. I bough them because they looked much better and I got a great deal at the time (nothing like the Drop deal on the X versions, but good for its day). I really didn't hear much difference, and I wouldn't expect the 6XX to be a worthwhile upgrade to the 58X. Worth the extra money when deciding between the two, probably, worth buying as an upgrade to the 58X, I just don't see it. Stick with the 58X and save a bit longer for a meaningful upgrade (Dan Clark or otherwise, though clearly I would vote for the Dan Clarks). I still have my HD580s which I bought 30 years ago, and I will never sell them, or the HD600s. Both great cans, but I don't listed to them very often any more.

Fantastic! Wonderful for placement-intensive audiophiles!
Never had a standalone Hi-Fi headset before! (I had* Pandas and have AirPod Pros.) These have been an intense step-up for me. Much wider than the already wide Pandas which are closed cans. I can affirm, as someone on the spectrum, the presentation and direction of sound (soundstage) is jaw dropping at the 500$ price point. Just ordered some DT-770 Studios for mixing my music, but in terms of listening to music with my moderately solid desktop setup, these take the absolute cake for me. For reference, I listen to R&B/Soul, Hip-hop/Rap, Indie, and Rock. (Mac Miller nonstop, is my general mode though.) Each of these I prefer to listen to on Magnetics and Rock, the only one I found could use wider soundstages on planars, are found to be unmistakably perfect on these opens, especially on a good EQ.

Just like the closed
These felt just like the closed back to me which isn’t bad but wasn’t my cup of tea. I ended up returning these but the sound was solid with a good amp but not for travel without an amp.

Interesting! I found that these drivers ran more than loud enough on an iPhone 11, shitty dongle and all.
