Hi guys! i would like these but im torn on what to expect from these. I don't have any listening time with any sennheiser product, mostly sony xb950bt, shure in ear (i don't remember the model) and some akg headphones. What should i expect from these LEGENDS i hear about these and the 650hd model? I mostly listen to hiphop, pop and edm, aswell as rock and Orchestral music. Would these be a better to try or something like the HD1 or Vmoda M100?
The HD 6XX are strictly for at home listening, if possible with a dedicated headphone amplifier. If that is what you want, they will be everything you will ever need in terms of sound quality.
If you want something on the move, the HD1 sounds like a good idea, if you get a nice deal on them.
Should I get the Senheiser 6xx or the 58x and why? What are the pros and cons of both?
58X Pros: Unbeatable Performance/Price ratio. Can be plugged into anything and sound good. More engaging sound signature because the treble is a bit more pronounced. Very rare compared to 6XX/650. The shiny surface looks in my opinion better than the 6XX.
58X Cons: will not work well with high impedance tube amps (which are inferior anyways, so no real disadvantage)
6XX Pros: "end-game" for a lot of people. If you get it and like the relaxed sound, you will never need another headphone for at home listening again. The high impedance will make it work well with exotic tube amps, if that is important to you. Acknowledged to be one of the best headphones ever with insanely good reproduction of the mids.
6XX Cons: could sound kind of lacking from your phone and requires an amp. The sound signature is not for everyone. $50 more expensive.
