I have both the 600s and the 6XX's. The 600's are definitely better headphones for high quality sources because they are more accurate and clear. The 6XXs are "smoother" or have a smoothing effect, and make listening to music that is lesser quality a better experience. For instance if you are listening to live concerts from youtube videos and that kind of stuff, the 6XXs sound much better than 600s. 6XX are also easier to listen to for long listening sessions like listening at work. I consider both headphones to be indispensable and having both sets covers everything for me.
Concise and good wording. Thanks!
I was undecided between the 6XX and 600 while trying to avoid purchasing both for the sake of budget (and redundancy). I already have the 58X (drop version).
I'll probably choose the 6XX over the 600 then. At least for the short term. After all, my SRH1540 is already a big "whistle blower" for poorly recorded tracks. It is a very resolving can and sound really really good for good mixed tracks. Intention is for every day use. 58X is already great for that and I see the 6XX as an alternative with a different spice to it.
