Are these pretty different from the hd6xx massdrop. [Im on that list] I'm looking for a closed back that is different but very good. Can anyone compare the 2, or at least the fostex to sennh sound signature in general? Looking for 2 different style signatures, if they are similar, than I will look at something else. I really appreciate it. No small feat dropping $600 total on phones!! Thanks!!

What kind of music do you listen to? These have slamming bass, the 6xx are much more neutral and precise IMO

I listen to everything, but not electronic and few rap. Mostly rock from sheeran to metallica, country, classical. Was thinking split my time between 2 headphones. What about the emu teak?. Would that be vastly different than senn hd6xx? Fyi I am looking for vastly different. Fostex 6xx is $400 Fostex emu I think is 500, but detachable cables (currently shipping, not dropping). Let me know what you think.

I've saved up my $ for awhile. I can afford to get 2 phones. Already ordered the hd6xx. Just need a closed companion pair...

I'm going to leave this to somebody better suited to answer as I've never heard these.
Do you have an Amp/DAC?

HD6xx/650 - Midrange focused, great for vocals - "Sufficient" mid-bass thump, mediocre overall bass quality - Rolled treble, much less hearing fatique - Open, so a lot of sound leakage - Very "safe" and laid back sounding - Very light and comfortable - Needs a desktop amp, preferably OTL tube amp like the Bottlehead Crack - Mediocre, detachable cable
TH-X00 - W-shaped sound signature - Midrange recessed compared to treble and bass, vocals not as good - Treble smoothed for the most part, but occasionally peaky - Great mid-bass slam and good extension and rumble - Semi-closed, but leakage is not a problem - Exciting sound signature - Protein leather pads can get hot on ears - Very long non-detachable cable - Efficient, does not need any amping

Yes, they're totally different, I tried both of them. To be honest, I'd like to own both of them and nothing more. At the moment I'm waiting for HD6XX.

What about the Mr speaker aeon's?? I realize they are in a totally different price bracket ($800) but I have heard GREAT things about these and the company; it's supposed to be a trickle down of the bigger more expensive ethers. Something to the effect of...it doesn't do 1 thing better than others, but does everything very well. Obviously, not going to do anything till I get and play with the 6xxs for awhile.

I would love to own a top of the line open pair and closed. I feel with this drop I'm 1/2 way there.

You sure are. The TH-X00's are just fucking amazing if you ask me. I never actually listened to crazy expensive headphones but I heard a few good ones and I can tell that these are just really really good.
