I found a brand new pair of these on Craigslist from a previous batch. #9826 I was using 598se before. i had read that the performance difference is negligible, but let me say, these are outright amazing. Both headphones sound really good. The difference is in the presentation. Everything the 598 does, the 6XX does so much sweeter. i am driving these with a Fiio E17K and it’s plenty of power. They aren’t terrible straight out of the iPhone X, either.

The HD598 was the headphone that started me in this whole God Forsaken hobby (which I love), and it's a really good headphone, but when I moved up to the HD600 I was blown away! I can also tell you that the E17 and your phone are only scratching the surface of the HD6XX's capabilities (my 6XX s/n 42270). They sound the best on OTL type tube amps (the Little Dot MK II is a great starter...I just got a Woo Audio WA3...Wow!).

I have been browsing Bottlehead's site for a few days :(. This isn't even a slippery slope. Its a see-saw back and forth between components, lol.

Noticed OC in your user name. That doesn't happen to stand for Orange County, does it? I live in HB.
