Great Sound, Great Price
There's not a whole lot I could write about on the HD 6XXs that hasn't already been said before. I'm new to the "audiophile" game and wouldn't really call myself an "audiophile" at all. I'm not a professional musician but I've played an instrument in community bands and orchestras for 12 years, so I know what good, live music is supposed to sound like and can talk about musicality and such but don't have a whole lot of experience talking about the different sections of listening when it comes to high end headphones. All that just to say that I wanted to upgrade my audio equipment because I knew there was something better out there, but didn't want to drop a bunch of money on something I would never be able to appreciate without the prerequisite experience.
Prior to the HD 6XXs, the best pair of headphones I owned were Grado's SR60e. I loved those headphones even though I knew they definitely had a "flavored" sound signature. I opted for the HD 6XX because I'd also read that Grado and Sennheiser have complimentary or opposing sound signatures.
Ultimately, I'm really happy with the upgrade. There's details in songs that I hadn't known was there before. Instruments sound more crisp, vocals sound more warm, etc. I bought the Schiit Magni3+ to power the headphones. I didn't think I would end up buying a DAC but I did end up getting the Modi to go with it for future potential. I think it's a great set up for me and even my partner (not a particularly music inclined person) hears a big difference in the upgrade.
Would recommend to a friend.
