Alright guys my shipping label has been made. I'll use this comment thread to keep everyone updated with my experience from delivery to unboxing and using the 6xx.
If you guys show interest in this I might even include pictures!
FedEx is moving the package prety fast so far. My shipping label was made 5 hours ago and its already almost here. Keep in mind I live close to New Jersey where their warehouse is located.
The package is now 80 miles from my house. 10 hours after my last update.
Get ready for it to park in one place for a few days. I'm in california, so what it did was it sped across the country for a day or two, it meandered for a couple days in socal going from city to city...then it shot up to about 40 miles from where I live and has been parked there for two days. Since it's scheduled for delivery on tuesday I fully expect it to wait until then. Stupid fedex.
Yeah I expect that too but you never know right haha.
Good news at 5 am the package was in transit to the USPS in my town (2 hours ago). I am hopeful that I'll have them by the end of the day!
Hey guys guess what?
I just open the box it was shipped in this is what it looks like.
Here it is out of the shipping box.
And here it is out of the next box haha.
Here it is with the final box open.
Ok guys I'm gonna plug it into my X1s listen to some music and report back later.
Waiting to hear how it goes with x1s
Sorry its been so long. I have been writing an essay and listening to these. I will be writing an in depth review after some time but I want to use them for a good while first before I make any conclusions. Specifically about the X1s it has PLENTY of power for these. I thought Id really have to crank the volume up but thats not the case at all. It is plenty loud. When I turn the nob to the word min or just a little above it in a quiet environment its loud enough for me.
So for the sound. I don't know if its just these headphones or the X1s but damn does it sound good. do you have a more specific question about the sound?
Thanks man, everyone was telling me that HD6xx will have "painful highs" and "flat" instead of being natural warm with X1s, whats your case on highs and low beats?
The highs are definitely not painful at least to me. What people say about the HD6xx being laid back is so true. I think its interesting someone would call the highs painful because I was just thinking last night how nice the highs are to listen to. they are clear but not too extreme. Ive never heard something just like it. Ive heard bad highs on speakers that are all bass and painful highs on cheap earphones. I think these highs are really pleasant to listen to. I even think someone might call the highs vailed if they prefer the v shape sound signature.
Now for the bass. These cans really shine in the mids and bass area. The bass is clear and it extends really well into the lower notes. Its not bass head level bass but it's no joke either. It is full and satisfying it is even a litttle rumbly in hip hop songs which I think sounds really good. The vocals, especially the female vocals, are so clear its crazy. I swear I can hear their lips touch when they are singing.
These cans are awesome. I would absolutely describe them as warm. It takes a little while to realize how special they are because of all the subtleties but once you put it all together its a great result. I am having a hard time trying to find anything negative to criticize about these.
