Beautiful set of headphones. Extremely comfortable pads and headband (although I tend to prefer self adjusting). I pair these with a Schiit Fulla 2 DAC/AMP and they sound amazing. Do not regret the purchase in the slightest. Buy yourself an antlion modmic like I did and you have yourself an amazing gaming headset you'll never want to take off.
I know you didn't ask, but I came across your review and figured I might add my 2 cents since I was also running my 6XX through a Fulla 2 at first. I loved them with the Fulla 2, but decided on a whim to upgrade to a Massdrop CTH when the drop opened up, and found the CTH to be a significant step up in unleashing the 6XX. I'm still using the Fulla 2 as DAC (fixed output to bypass its amp), but might upgrade that soon too. I wish I had bought the CTH+SDAC so I could sell my Fulla 2, but it wasn't available when I bought my CTH.
For what it's worth, I'm a novice audiophile who usually takes some time to fully appreciate more subtle differences in sound. But once the CTH & it's tube were warmed up (50-100 hours burn in according to the manual), it was a pretty immediate "wow," realizing the 6XXs I loved with the Fulla could do a lot more. Best attempt at describing the sound: with the CTH, 6XX sounded much richer, fuller, and more crisp across the spectrum, with tighter & better-extended low end. People say the 6XX "scale" very well to better amps, and now I know what they mean. Still loving this pairing after a 2-3 months of daily listening, sometimes all day with no fatigue, and not wanting to buy anything else.
Hopefully this is helpful to you/anyone else when you're ready to upgrade!
