I am still waiting for my smsl headphone amp to come. Right now am I running these on my mobile HTC 10. Still better than any headphone I've had. But I guess what I am hearing is nothing to the real deal of having a headamp

So i bought this purely for gaming on my pc, is an amp really required to get value out of these? Or does plugging it directly into the motherboard give it enough power?

This is my experience and what I've found to be a good solution. I would personally suggest getting an external amp. With the amp, just use a 3.5 male to 2 RCA plug to connect it from the audio out on the mobo to the amp. A PCIe sound card can work, but I personally don't like it. A sound card is a valid option. I know Asus makes one that can handle headphones of 300 ohms and even 500 ohms. However, the inside of your pc case if filled with electrical interference. That noise is easily picked up by a dac and that can make it's way into your game audio leading to undesirable buzzing noises. Sound cards can be well designed and isolated to help prevent those issues, but I just prefer to play it safe vs buying a sound card only to learn that it wasn't shielded properly. With the 6XX, being 200 ohms, I think a wall powered amp would be the best and for that, I recommend the JDS Atom. It's $99 and for that price bracket, it can't be beat. Some alternatives are the Schitt Magni 3 or the Monoprice Liquid Spark. There are USB powered amps available for similar prices, but I find them to be lacking in power and older songs are just too quiet for my ears(ex: Nuforce uDac 3). I mentioned the dac which is really optional. Again, I believe that the dac is the last thing you should upgrade and your motherboard dac will probably be good enough. I would only recommend buying an external dac if you suffer from similar issues like me where electrical noise is getting picked up. If you want some recommended dacs, Topping makes really good budget Dacs. The Topping D10 comes to mind ($80). Another good option is the Khadas Tone Board ($100) but it's just a pcb so you'll have to 3d print a case or something. Final thing, there are also Dac/amp combos. A really good one is the Topping DX3 ($220). So if you wanted to get both a Dac and an amp, but wanted it to be all crammed into one solution and not deal with extra cables, then this would be a good solution for that.

Hi folks! Will these work with a balanced cable with 0.78 mm 2-pin connectors? I have a mp3 player with a balanced headphone jack on it, and I really want to give it a try. Thanks!

Yep, no problem! Enjoy the 6xx. Something to note, Massdrop sometimes has balanced cables for the 6xx (fancables? I forget the name), however, I have seen mixed reviews regarding price per quality but it's out there somewhere. Of course, finding other cables online will ultimately get you the same thing.

Will these pair fine with the Topping D10 dac? I might join the drop if so.

what about the MASSDROP O2 + SDAC DAC/AMP?

Don't bother with the massdrop o2. It's a horrendous mess and you are better off with the dx3 or the d10 + jds atom. Here's what I'll say, reviews from audio science have said the massdrop sdac + O2 amp is poorly constructed (the internal wiring and construction is a jumbled mess). Not to mention, when you compare it to the same price bracket gear (in this case, the d10 + jds atom or dx3), the sdac + O2 amp lose in terms of specifications. Sure, those differences are probably not that audible/ noticeable, but for the same price, why not get the slightly better one.

Difference between these and the "non-EU"?

These ship from the EU and they cost more, mostly because they have the VAT included.

VAT usually only applies to EU residents. I buy stuff from France, Germany and Latvia all the time, and am never charged VAT.

According to massdrop: the audio gear was originally sold at a much lower price than expected msrp. In other words they were making much less than expected. They say this was done as a marketing stunt to try and build a consumer base, and now that they have gained popularity, they're putting the prices back up to recommended sell price. In other words, recommended sell price for 6xx is $220. It was first sold at $199 to peak user interests in the site. Now that it's popular, drop is now selling it at $320.

I got these headphones but the jack (where it plugs in) got chafed down and now they don’t work. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement cable?

A quick note for anyone wondering if they will have amping problems with these. I thought I would and already had a schiit stack priced out before they were delivered. Glad I didnt pull the trigger because my Fiio K5 powers these just fine, even on low gain. I like to wear these around the house, and I even had no problem powering these portably. These sound fantastic out of my Cayin C5, and even my Fiio e12a power these just fine. Now straight out of my Fiio X5ii is where you start hearing a drop off; volume is pushed to about 80 on high gain and they just dont sound as good as when theyre amplified.
