Just received my HD6XX today, even though the tracking wasn’t updated since June.11. For the people on here ordering from Canada, I had to pay $48.86 at the door. That’s gst/hst and a 9.95 handling fee, I’m happy with that, was worried about how much it would be. So the grand total for these headphones was $336.43CAD, currently on amazon.ca it would cost me a total of $629.77CAD for the HD650.
These sound much better than my HD598. I chose as my first song “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac. I’m very familiar with this song and noticed a difference from the beginning. The bass is much improved, more detail in the midrange and I found a big difference with Stevie’s voice. It felt like she was singing in the same room with me. I felt giddy just listening after a few minutes, the same way I did the first time that I used an amp/dac. The clamping force is stronger than the 598 but doesn’t bother me, I used the 280pro for years and had no problem with those. I’m using the Topping D3 amp/dac to power these and it’s doing a fine job.
So happy with my purchase, thank you Massdrop!

I feel your pain, @FlyByNight ... we Canadians get hosed at the border. If one were to buy the HD650 at a bricks-and-mortar store, we'd be paying double the price. Re: Fleetwood Mac. Stevie Nix can belt it out. Just wait until you spin up her solo album, eh... Cheers from Hogtown.

Not to mention the HD598's are very grainy compared to the 6XX, I can't believe its not butter! :p
