Received my HD6XX today! Listening to them as I type this. Let me say first off that I own several Planar Magnetic Headphones. I have a real love of the Planar sound and they tend to get more play time than my Dynamic Driver models. That being said, I do completely understand the long love affair the Audiophile world has had with the Sennheiser HD650 that the 6XX is a clone of. These are pleasant. I know that sounds like a strange way to describe a Headphone but that is what comes to mind when you hear them. They have the somewhat rare ability to take any music and make it sound pleasing to the ear. They just take a laid back approach to the way they present the music. My much loved Planars I love for their hyper detail and stunning Bass. However that attention to every little detail makes any deficiencies in the recording painfully obvious. There are many songs that I love that I simply can't stand to hear on my Planars because the were not recorded well and it sounds like crap. These Sennheisers very tastefully gloss over those deficiencies. Some call that the "Sennheiser Veil". I would call that a great design idea. I now have a very clean pleasant sounding headphone that I can use to listen to music that is not an Audiophile recording and still enjoy it as if it was. A+++ rating for these remarkable headphones. They will proudly take there place on my shelf of Headphone addiction for years to come and spent a lot of time on my head making me smile :)
