Probably the best headphones you can buy at $200
if you are looking for an enjoyable headphone. One that is pleasant and pleasing to listen to after a long day at work, just get a pair of these. I have had mine since the end of 2016. I was able to jump into the original drop of the HD6xx. I have bought several other headphones throughout this time and I always ended up with these. the 6xx lacks quantity in bass, but it does not lack quality. it has enough for genres like Jazz, not enough for other genres though. I am currently powering my 6xx through the Massdrop Liquid Carbon and it just such a beautiful pairing. There is zero fatigue. the liquid carbon adds a bit of umph on the bass too. these are great headphones for vocals. Male & female After almost 3 years of buying and selling headphones, these are still sitting on my desk, because I have not found a better value than these anywhere

A Top-Notch Experience From Beginning To End!
From the painless ordering process to making sure that the product arrived on time professionally packaged, along with an invoice to the actual product itself - the HD 6XX - Wow! I have been listening to music for over 40 years and have never heard my music like this before. Little nuances that were never heard before come out here. Not like hearing it for the first time, but like hearing a different mix of the same song. Very impressive Drop, please give yourselves a big hand for making these beautiful headphones even more available for all to enjoy!

What are "open back headphones"?
Open backs project sound both towards your ears and out the sides of the earpieces. This makes the sound feel as if they are coming from further away. Good for replicating the directions of where each vocals and instruments are coming from; like at a concert. Close backs sound as if the music is coming from the centre of your head; you get less "directional" experience but they feel more intimate. Open backs leak sound so if you are riding on public transport, the people sitting next to you might look at you sideways wonder why you are playing music for everyone around you. Most high end headphones are open back so don't worry about losing any sound quality from the leakage!
What is the best amp (or amp/dac) to pair with the HD6XX?
They go well with my Modi/Magni Schiit stack

Unmistakably the worst headphone I have ever purchased. It sounds as if there is a veil covering the music and is preventing the music from being played its upmost artistic musical presentation.

DodgingBulletsI bought mine a few years ago, I like the design and comfort but not the sound. I agree with you, sound is muddy and unrealistic. I've used the Ifi Zen (drop edition for 6xx), Topping A30 pro, A90 d, and Schiit Folkvanger. Many DACs. Occasionally I'm entertained by the sound, but I always got bored quick. I actually just came back by to check some specs :)

Are they still coming with that fancy box? Edit: Answer: No, I contacted support it now comes with same cardboard package like other sennheiser 6 series.

These headphones are my current favorites and have been for a while. The value for price on these is absolutely worth it. The open backs are great for listening in a quiet room at home. (mod edit: removed affiliate links)

I've had these cans for about 8-9 months, and I usually end up wearing them for 8-12 hours a day. They sound amazing and cause virtually no wearing fatigue. I plan on buying another pair as soon as these break. This is a no brainer for audiophiles. (mod edit: removed affiliate links)

Is there any probability historically that the price will be lower in the upcoming summer sales?

I think this one had a lot of good reviews when I had purchased. It was everything that was hyped for. I still use it everyday as a daily driver and definitely feels like it gets better over time. (mod edit: removed URL)

I received mine a few days ago in Turkey. After waiting for a week in the post office. I should say to people who are buying from Turkey, it's going to cost you almost the same as a pair of HD650s. (They charged me ~5000TL for customs and customs consultancy) That apart, they are a decent pair of headphones. Sound great on MBP M1. I also tested them with my iPhone 13 and my wife's iPhone 14 Pro. 13 sounded muffled and couldn't drive them well, but the 14 Pro did a great job (and probably iPhone 14), and they were loud enough for me to enjoy listening to them.

pooyaknWhat did you use to add a headphone jack to the iPhone 14 Pro that you didn’t use with the iPhone 13, seeing as neither of these include one?

Amazing for the home office. Super comfortable and the sound quality is amazing. They don't need amplification from most sources unless you want the music to get loud, but you might need to crank up the volume to listen comfortably. Sounds great with all genres. (mod edit: removed links)

A few weeks ago, I bought a second pair of 6XX for a family member and the headphones look used. For one, the 6XX shipped in a small box, unlike the original pair I bought last summer, which came in a large, hefty box surrounded in foam. The cables were already attached and I noticed that the lip of the box had black marks (see 2nd pic below). Next, I noticed white marks on the headphones themselves (see 1st pic below). The pads had a bit of lint on them but they smelled brand new. Has anyone purchased the 6XX recently and was received their headphones in a similar condition? Does it look like a refurbished / returned item? I contacted support and they immediately issued a return label but I hate returning things because retailers end up taking losses. But, I really don't want a used item.

JiggleWiggleWe don't ship used items. Our warehouse that handles A-stock orders is completely different from the warehouse that handles returned items. Sennheiser did indeed change their packaging (unfortunately we weren't given a choice to keep the old package). If there are any marks those would have most likely occurred during transportation. Our Support team would gladly help with these cases. I hope the above helps and answers your questions.
