Got my pair yesterday, a good step up from my HD 598s.

I have 598s also. Are the 6XX a noticeable upgrade? I just got my notification that my 6XX are shipping soon.

I am not some intense audiophile, so my advice is definitely from a regular users perspective. I am using the Magni 3 for the amp paired with a focusrite interface I was for the DAC.
On to my thoughts, I found the HD 6XX to not be a major groundbreaking jump. At low volumes it sounds very similar, but you'll find the HD 6XX packs a punch with the upper and mid volumes. Sounds more full and close, while the bass has a notable improvement. Overall a good step upgrade, but not something night and day for me.

I noticed a significant upscale in sound but they were my first open-back headphones too. They sound fan-freakin-tastic with a DSD player.

I read a comparison online and it said that the 598 are about 70% as good. Would u agree?

I'd have to say that's spot on, both headphones were used with a Magni 3 .

Thats good to know because the price currently of 598 is almost exactly 70% of the 6XX during the drop
