Can't quit listening...
The HD 6XX is my first open back headphone. Most recently I had been using my $450 Beyerdynamic DT1770 pro, which can be pretty intense at times but has a pretty fun deep bass and sub bass. In moving to the 6XX, I had, based on comments and reviews here, pretty much resigned myself to needing to get used to a comparatively bass deficient experience. I also didn't know how much sound leaked through the open back and figured that I'd need to move back to my 1770s at night, so as to not disturb my sleeping family. Surprisingly wrong on both counts... sound leakage is way less than I had anticipated and, even on direct A/B comparisons the 6XX bass response is VERY satisfactory. Since receiving the 6XX a few days ago, I have logged many hours of listening, revisiting favorite music, streamed on Qobuz and Tidal. It really has been, in many instances, like hearing some well recorded songs for the first time again! Except for doing some initial comparisons, I haven't moved back to my 1770s and am regretting a recent cable upgrade because I really can't imagine not using the 6XXs. Lovin' the amazing vocals and silky smooth overall sound, great for all music genres! If you've been wondering whether or not to purchase a 6XX, my recommendation would be to hop on a Drop ASAP.
Would recommend to a friend.
