Okay so I had joined the drop with the shipping date end of March. Now I look online and find this ad. --> http://www.canuckaudiomart.com/details/649413775-sennheiser-hd-600-brand-new/ Would this be worth the purchase or just continue waiting for the 6XX to arrive? Also I had posted a wanted ad on that site for the 650/6XX and a person replied to me offering his mint 6XX for $315 CAD. Again should I grab those now or just wait for my order to arrive. I will admit I'm getting anxious.

HD 600 = Good sound detail, good for vocal , less bass, bright sounding, Soundstage not as wide as 6XX/ 650 HD 6XX/650 = Wide soundstage , warm sounding , good bass, less detail than the HD 600 (maybe 5~8%?).
I personally like warm cans. Others category are pretty much the same.
You decide. Even better if you can audition those headphone at your local shop, Don't trust opinion, trust your ears.

Well I've never seen higher end headphones like these in any of my local shops. Either way I don't usually feel comfortable using used headphones for hygienic reasons. Even if they were only one a couple of times. Those HD600s are $340 with shipping which is still pretty steep for me considering I already dropped close to $300 CAD for the 6XX. I actually would love to audition them side by side but that's a lot of money to put down.
I had watched the Zeos review comparison video of these two headphones and he said basically the same as you. It's pretty rare for me to listen to bass heavy music so hopefully the 6XX doesn't have too much. Also I don't understand the term "bright sounding" but I have heard that the 600 is more analytical. I want something that is still fun to listen to. I'm thinking I should have joined the 58X drop when I had the chance. Maybe they'd sound close to the 600.

Oh you want something fun? Go for HD 6XX. If you want a serious listening of every details, go for 600. Btw, the bass are not very heavy like beats. Heck, not even comparable to HiFiman's Planar. But still a decent bass than 600.
I owned both so I personally prefer 6XX/650

fair enough. What about the 6XX compared to the 598s which I currently have? Those have enough bass for me. I wouldn't need any more than that.

I did audition 598 but for short time at my local shop and I can say 598's bass is less than 6XX. If you like the amount of bass of 598, I think you better off with 600. Bass = 6XX > 600 > 598
If you planning to do everything with one (rule them all) headphone (movies , gaming , music), better take 6XX.

Well I already have 6XX on the way. Maybe I can find some 600 and compare them side by side.

You're obsessing over pretty minor differences, all of these headphones are more similar than they are not. It's not like you're considering Beyerdynamics or (shudder) Grados as an alternative to the HD6XX.
If you've got an amp, stick with the HD6XX. If you don't, and intend to use a phone, then the 58X. It's only a month, just use whatever you have to tide you over.
And ignore Zeos- that guy is deaf, and is all about exaggeration to increase subscribers.

Either way, both are great purchase. You can swap if you don't find it suitable for you. Just don't sell it. It's a very valuable headphones.

I meant, once if you got the both 600 and 6XX, let say you don't like 600, its better to keep it.

I guess but I don't really need multiple headphones unless they were different types. If I had one closed and one open back then that would be okay.
