Wow, I don't know what to say. I'm new to the high-end audio scene, so my experiences are based on the equipment I have in comparison to on board computer audio. That being said, these headphones are AMAZING!
Purchased a Schiit Modi/Magni combo to accompany these. I admit, they could use a more powerful amp, but audio levels are very comfortable at 75% to 85%. Can be increased to uncomfortable levels if you need louder, but I hardly touch the volume knob now, simply use Windows volume control.
The headphones are extremely comfortable, I could easily see myself wearing them for hours. They are open back, which gives an open, clear sound signature, but wouldn't be a good use in a public environment. Sound quality is absolutely outstanding. I could be labeled a "top 50" listener, but you absolutely DO NOT need Flac or other lossless music files to enjoy the quality and comfort of these headphones.
TL:DR - If you are willing to wait months to receive them, the purchase is EASILY worth the $200 price tag. Sound is excellent and headphones are usable with or without an amp, but the amp is highly recommended. Supreme comfort. My only regret is that I bought only one pair... Happy listening fellow 6XX owners!
