This 6XX used to be my second favorite headphone just after my AKG712 Pro but now took the third spot after the very nice to drive HD58X which just works better with all my gear not just the high -end stuff. Sound quality among the two Sennheisers are equally good and I find them nearly matching if not for the louder so more bass and highs evident 58X. The 58 being easier to drive and reaching higher volumes just accentuate better certain tonalities. At same volume level I hardly discern any differences between the two but I am 41 and may be going downhill with my earing... ;-)
I am still rating K712 Pro as top spot for me for complete accuracy. But 2nd spot now is HD6xx (musical), with 3rd spot now is DT880 edition /250 ohm (transparency + soundstage).
I jumped on first batch on HD6xx (nov 2016) butI remembered when I audited the HD650 150+ odd full moons ago (10-15 years) it had the Senn veil and I was told it's normal. In came the HD6xx (early 2017) and it's evidence enough every single time I use the HD6xx it's still the Senn veil... that is right until last week.
I was on paid holiday and I left the amp on whole day/ night (modded H10, dual core MUSE8920 twins per channel at small signal stage + buffered OPA1611 at power stage, +12dB pregain) and this morning I picked up the headphone and Senn veil completely gone now. I run through many other album after and comfirm it's not my imagination.
