Now let the 4 month wait begin!
Should be worth it though. I really can't wait.
when will a new drop come?
do you know what date the new drop begins?
It was originally billed as a limited time offer, so each new drop is a surprise to me. I’m sure a new drop of the HD 58X Jubilee will come eventually, or if you want the HD 6XX and don’t want to wait to see if maybe it will drop again, you could always buy the HD 650 at the regular price.
It’s a very good headphone though, one of my favorite to use while working, or after a long hard day they’re one of my favorite choices while lying in bed.
Seeing as this drop ended only a couple days ago, it's hard to say. Likely in 3 or 4 months you'll see another one assuming this wasn't the last one.
I think I will buy the Senheiser HD 600's than.
I will use it for music and gaming, Will it work fine or do I need the Hd 650's?
From what I've read the HD 600s have a more neutral sound, while the 650s are a bit warmer. Both are great headphones, it just depends on your preference.
How about the Bass, do you know somethings about that?
The HD 650 fits the Harmon Target Response curve, before Harmon’s research into the general user preference was published, while the HD 600 is more flat. The new HD58X Jubilee has more treble sparkle than either of those, and bass like the HD 650. They all sound rather “natural” rather than hyping one part of the frequency.
None of them sound like they have a double helping of bass nor have a really thick sound, but they do sound like a former flagship headphone effort. If you are used to more mainstream products, the detail and control of these headphones will surprise you.
If you are looking for a little extra bass and fun, and have some gaming intent in mind, you would be better suited to get the PC37X. I have an HD 650 and I wrote the first review of the PC37X on Massdrop, and I prefer the sound signature and easy-to-amp nature of the PC37X for gaming, while I use the HD 650 at bedtime or while working.
Only what I've read. The general consensus seems to be that the bass is very detailed, but not very booming. i.e. more accurate, less Beats by Dre.
I would agree with Bradum. It’s a touch above flat like almost all speaker installations, but it certainly isn’t boomy, bloomy, mushy, or feeling exaggerated.

I'd highly recommend the Monolith M1060s for this. They're a bit pricier (50% higher price) than the HD 6XX, but well worth it. In my opinion and experience with them, the price is on point. Definitely fair for the headphones you get. Far enough away from "audiofool" snakeoil pricing territory to avoid buyer's remorse for less experienced ears.
Either will be fine for gaming, the soundstage is a larger on the HD650 so they would be better for positional audio. I also find the HD650 a bit faster in the upper mids and much smoother than the HD600. Both are smooth, but after listening to the HD650 for awhile, it makes the HD600 sound grainy. People generally find the HD650 a bit warmer, but that is not my experience at all. Both headphones are very neutral, the HD600 is flatter which tends to reveal more details and the HD650 is darker and more correct sounding. Darkness and warmth are not the same.
