The original "updates" thread spanning April 1 -> May 31st is available here. It was getting a little unwieldy with 100+ replies. June 1st Update As you can see we're currently in "pre-order" status for the HD6XX headphones, with an expected ship time of June 30th. Over the past two months, Sennheiser has been cranking out units of the HD6XX as quickly as they safely can (while maintaining the highest quality standards). With the global pandemic still present, production facilities, freight operations, customs and warehousing are severely impacted so everything takes longer than "normal". While we have a quoted date of June 30th, we've been working behind the scenes to try to expedite this process. The current plan that is being executed is that half of our order will be completed around June 12th, and then it'll be loaded onto a plane and flown to New Jersey so that we can ship units to you sooner. There are plenty of snags that can happen along the way, but the hope is we'll get as many as 1500 units earlier than the June 30th (expected, not guaranteed!) ship date of the entire 3000 unit order. As of June 1st, there have been about 600 units of the 1500 sold, so if you want to get a spot on the earlier shipment, you should place your order sooner rather than later. We sell anywhere from 100 to 300 of these per day... I will continue to update this thread as more information becomes available. Please check back! June 1st Update #2 Our plan may be foiled- the 1500 units may not be able to be air-shipped, we'll get more details in the coming days. June 2nd Update: Alright, as always, plans change pretty frequently! What's looking like the newest situation is we're going to have 750 units at our warehouse by June 9th. So those will likely ship in the days shortly thereafter. We've managed to move up the timeline on another 2000+ units, but the exact dates are unclear right now. Probably something in the range of June 23-25th (ish). June 8th Update: Delivery is scheduled for tomorrow on our early shipment of 750 units. Those orders should ship on the 10th or 11th. The rest of the order is still on track for around June 23rd. June 9th Update: Truck arrived this morning. We should be shipping out 750 units in the next two days. Everything else still on track for June 23rd so get your order in soon so you can make sure you get a spot of that shipment. Otherwise you'll be waiting for the next shipment which is scheduled for the end of July. June 10th Update: Started shipping the early units today, didn't get them all done, the remainders of the early-batch should be shipping out tomorrow. June 11th Update: All of the early units have shipped, if you don't have a tracking number already, you'll be in the June 23rd group. Latest we've heard is June 23rd is still the expected date, will update you next week to make sure that's still moving as scheduled. June 15th Update: Units have arrived at Sennheiser USA, and are now being loaded onto a truck and sent to us. There's a decent chance it gets to us before the end of the week, in which case we'll start shipping them immediately. The wait is almost over. Reminder that this shipment will cover all existing pre-orders, plus about a week's worth of additional sales. If you miss out on this round, you'll be waiting until end of July for the next shipment. June 17th Update: Sennheiser hasn't given us tracking yet, so we're not sure what the status of our shipment is. It's looking less likely we'll get it before the weekend. Will provide another update as soon as we get more info. June 18th Update: We've got a tracking number and the headphones are scheduled to arrive (estimated) on June 22nd. Orders will be shipped to customers shortly after that!! June 22nd Update: Shipment has arrived, we'll start shipping today or tomorrow. New orders will ship (nearly) immediately. June 24th Update: Pretty much all of the pre-orders from the past 3 weeks have shipped. The last hundred or so should be done in the next couple of hours. The most recent buyers (June 23rd onwards) will be shipping today/tomorrow, and we're back to smooth sailing. June 25th Update: All the pre-orders from the past 3 weeks have been shipped. Any orders you place from now (until we run out of stock) will be shipped out in 1-5 business days (mostly 1-2 business days, but sometimes they get behind). There's about 300 units left in stock (ignoring those already set aside for past orders), and then people will need to wait until the next shipment in mid-July... (that basically means we're gonna be sold out again in the few days or so)... July 1st Update: Happy Canada Day! And also... we're sold out again.... :( Now accepting pre-orders for our next shipment, scheduled to arrive July 19th, and we'll likely be shipping around July 24th. If you're on the fence, I suggest ordering (you can always cancel it, or you can refund them after you get them). We've had multiple people asking to "reverse" their cancelled transactions, unfortunately we can't do that. July 16th Update: Good news everyone, the HD6XX's arrived to our warehouse today, which is 3 days early! It came late this afternoon so receiving/unpacking won't happen until tomorrow at the earliest. We have other shipments already scheduled to be unpacked tomorrow (that's the problem when things come early) but we're trying to get this slotted in. More info soon, but we'll probably be shipping these before the July 24th estimated ship date. More updates to come over the next few days. July 17th Update: Whoa, we're moving fast. 600+ orders shipped out today, and the remainders should ship out on Monday or Tuesday. Newer orders (ie if you place an order today), it'll probably ship on/around July 22nd. July 25th Update: Quick scan of orders, I think everything ordered prior to July 19th has shipped. Most of the orders after the 19th should be shipping out this weekend or Monday/Tuesday. We're currently shipping these at our "regular pace" which generally means your order ships between 2-5 business days after you order it depending on the daily fluctuations of warehouse/order volumes. We have about ~1000 of these left available to sell, so we'll probably be sold out again in about a week or so. Next shipment will arrive in the middle of August- assuming Sennheiser isn't late (our last 5 shipments from Sennheiser ranged from 5 days early to 10 days late, so take that delivery date for what it's worth given COVID). July 27th Update: Just heard from Sennheiser that they're experiencing delays in their supply chain, specifically their headband part supplier. We're being told to expect a delay of up to 4-6 weeks on our next shipment, which was originally due to arrive in the middle of August. That means that when we're sold out of the remaining ~800 units that we have in stock, new pre-orders will potentially need to wait until early/mid September for their shipment. As with all things supply chain oriented, things are subject to change but that's the latest we're hearing right now. In terms of order shipments, our warehouse is caught up to July 22nd orders, and July 23-26th orders should be going out in the next day or two. We're currently operating within our ~5 business day expected processing/ship times.

I've been using my HD6XX headphones for a few months now. Overall I'm happy with them, but I'm starting to notice that they seem very dark. All my other headphones (cheaper ones) have much more mids and highs. I'm using the AAA 789 as the amp. I'm mostly happy using my Echo AudioFire12 as the DAC but I recently switched to the Grace SDAC Balanced. The darkness seems much more extreme with the Grace SDAC. I get fatigued by the low-mids. When I switch back to the Echo, it's like a fog is lifted on the highs. My other headphones seem fine on the Grace SDAC. Are the HD6XXs supposed to be dark like this? Overall, I prefer the sound over my other headphones, but I'm very disappointed in the pairing with the Grace SDAC. Others seem to like that combination, so I'm a little worried something may be wrong with my HD6XXs. Thoughts?

I would like to know if these headphones are good for those who still don't have any audio monitoring and want to purchase one to have a good monitoring response for music production

An amplifier was not in my plans but I will have to purchase it to hear the best that the HD6xx can offer me! Thank you so much Michael-Q and Evshrug for helping me, I am really grateful for your help.

You could also buy an HD 650 from a local seller like Electromod, but they’ll have VAT and import fees (as well as the storage case, longer cable) built into the price.

So I am on day 3 of having received my 58x. I find myself not all that pleased by it. If I had to explain my sentiment about it I would use the world lifeless. Maybe even sterile. I only bought it over the 6xx due to the 6xx not being available. But it does seem like they got some coming up for shipping on the 3rd. How does the sound signature of the 6xx differ from the 58x? Will I feel the same way with it as well? Just curious on some thoughts. Thanks for any input. I come from a set of DT990s 250ohm before if this helps with any input.

There is a frequency response graph on the 58x product page that compares it to the 6xx. In short the bass is a notch higher and the treble is a notch lower but everything trends kind of the same way. Obviously they're different but in a broad sense they're quite similar.

If you are accustomed to the sound of the DT 990, which is strongly V-shaped with emphasized bass and treble and recessed mids, the HD 58X Jubilee (and HD 6XX) will sound like it has less “fireworks.” There is more balance among different instruments and vocals vs everything else with the Sennheisers. If you had been used to the HD 58X Jubilee and were listening to the DT 990 for the first time, you might find the treble to be painfully hot and the bass unnaturally boosted. The DT 990 and HD 58X Jubilee are both high performing headphones, but it would take awhile for anyone’s brain to get acclimated when switching between such drastically different sound signatures. If you keep both, however, the cool thing is that they might compliment eachother well and give you two distinct options.

Addicted to Audio’s Sennheiser HD 6XX page: https://addictedtoaudio.com.au/products/sennheiser-hd6xx-open-back-headphones Keep in mind they pay the customs and import fees, and also consider the exchange rate between Australian and US dollars. I notice they’re out of stock right now... but they’ll probably get more soon. You can probably also buy regular HD 650’s, but those might cost more.

Could anyone please mention How the optional earpads by Drop compare to the Dekoni's (and stock)? which are better between drop & dekoni? what are the main differences? has anyone tried both brands? Equally, could anyone mention which of the different types of earpads sold by drop here has a smaller effect in reducing sound clarity? (HD6XX)

You will get the least masking and most clarity with the Fenestrated Sheepskin pads. Some people find the Fenestrated Sheepskin to sound more clear than stock pads, though the frequency response (loudness of particular pitch notes) is a little different.

That’s good news! Like a good meal or wine, now you have to wait a bit to build anticipation, but I hope you enjoy it once it arrives!
