Hooooooly smokes, August? I got my K7XX a week and half later lol. Does anyone think this would be an upgrade from the K7XX? How different is the sound signature/clarity compared the K7XX? thanks!
Very different sound signature! HD 6XX is much more relaxed in the highs.
Does being more relaxed mean more clarity?
The HD 6XX might seem to lack clarity if you don't have trained ears, actually. A lot of new audiophiles inadvertently associate treble with clarity, and the HD 6XX lacks that treble. These are midrange cans, where male and female vocals are quite accurate and have a very "true to life" timbre.
In fact, you might find the HD 6XX boring. I did when I first switched from SHP9500s. Switching back made me realize just how grainy and how hollow the midrange sounded on my shps. I find the HD 6XX to have a very smooth and relaxing sound, instead of the in-your-face clarity and more fun sound that the K7XX has.
I see now, thank you for the explaining that to me. Thank you! I guess I will keep my K7XX's. BTW, Do you think I should replace my ear cups after 1 year of use?
Only if they flatten significantly. I find genuine AKG pads are usually quite expensive so I don't bother replacing them unless I'm having major comfort or sound issues.
I agree, but I feel like the pads on the K7XX and the 6XX are much better stock. The comfort and the sound signature change too much on the 6XX when I swapped pads, and with the K7XX, if it ain't broken don't fix it. I think K7XX pads are one of the most comfortable pads I've had on stock headphones.
