I‘m not an audiophile, but I’m really interested in getting into the scene. I enjoy music and really want some good headphones. If I’m going for a first pair of open back headphones should I go for The 6XX or the cheaper 58X?
Also as a side note, are these headphone able to run off a phone headphone jack? And if so, would it have good sound?
If you aren’t going to amp your cans, i would rec something like the hd598, they sound great from phone or tablet and dont really benefit much from xtra amplification...imo
You can pick up used pair on ebay for under 100 bucks
i use my 598s with my iphone when i walk the dog. 598 imo are fun sound signature and great for vocals, especially female. But if you feel compelled to get one of the massdrop cans, then the 58x will play louder than the 6xx from phone, but proper power is not just about loudness. I never owner the 580s but since they are in the 6x0 family, i assume they need a decent amp just like the 6xx... series went 580/600/650/660.
