Get yourself a nice amp!
Such a natural, accurate tune. You will hugely benefit from getting a nice amp to power these. Very light and comfortable -- no fatigue even after wearing for 4+ hours. I got a few hairs past the lining though which caused some rattling, but the cans are simple enough to take apart so I was able to alleviate the problem on my own.

A different take
Well, if you like music, then these are the headphones for you. No, the 6XX is not the best performing pair of headphones in terms of technicalities. But it is among the best sounding in terms of timbre and tonality. To give you an example, the Focal Elex is absolutely superior to the 6XX in detail retrieval and imaging; it’s a thing of awe, really. However, with the Focal Elex and other higher end headphones, instead of listening to the music, I find myself getting distracted by the details they retrieve—I’d pay attention to the vibration of the guitar strings, for example, instead of the coherence of sound produced by the guitar itself. In fact, I’m not merely getting distracted by the details; I’m habitually searching for them, now. I don’t listen to music anymore. I listen to individual sounds, instead. I was missing the forest for the trees.

This is not the case with the 6XX. Its objective is not detail retrieval but rather a natural presentation and resolution of music.

We often get our review of headphones from audiophiles. But If you want headphones to enhance your experience of music, then the 6XX is for you. If you are a musicphile — a person who listens to a wide selection of music — more than you are an audiophile, then this is for you. The 6XX sounds natural and special—special because it hasn’t been successfully replicated. The Elex is often called a “super 6XX,” it’s not. No headphone that I know of is. 

Finally, to end on a side note, what you get from 6XX, depends on what you feed it, so I suggest that, instead of endlessly buying headphones, you get the 6XX and then a really good amp to go with it…  maybe buy more than one amp — change the flavor that way — and stop buying headphones altogether ...

well..

maybe not...

maybe get a 58X or something to go with your DAP if you have that…

... and some better bluetooth earphones to go with your phone.

Great way to get into hifi
My first (but certainly not last) step into high quality audio equipment. These just blow everything else I've owned out of the water. Great for the money or if you want to try out a pair of open back headphones. Truly a step above anything else at this price point

Great Pair of Headphones
Anyone that wants to get a good value high quality into headphones this would be the one. The short cable is a bit too short for usage. So I would recommend getting an original hd650 cable from senneheiser for 10 bucks.

Great headphones to get into hifi audio
I spent 100$ on a Razer headphones thinking they will sound great since they cost a bit, but the difference between them is so high, even without an amplifier it's clear that Razer sounds muffled while HD6XX are crisp. I've used them with Schiit Magni and they sound amazing.

Beautiful sound, a keeper for sure
Definitely beats the Grado SR325e and Audio Technica ATH-M40X I had, both of which were a bit too bright for me. The HD 6XX produces sound that is clear with a tinge of sweetness, to which I can listen for hours. Not so with my old headphones!
