I am no pro
Just recently got into appreciating good audio
I got myself a K7xx before I got this
Both are very good headphones
The K7xx has a better soundstage and comfort (I have a big head)
The HD6xx has better details and somewhat slightly warmer signature (just slight)
Both are miles better than whatever "gaming headsets" I had before (e.g. cloud II, arctis) for music and gaming
Actually both CAN be driven by my desktop motherboard alone, loud enough to hurt
But the dynamic range appears to be much better with a decent (I am using Xduoo TA-10 hybrid tube amp/dac) amp
I think both are worth every penny
Do you think it's worth it to buy the HD6XX if I already have the K7XX?
Hey buddy. I think it depends on what you use them for and what characteristics you are looking for.
I think K7XX is good enough for me, better at gaming with the much wider soundstage and feels more comfortable on big heads (very personal thing, I have a big head. HD6XX has a tight clamp on unboxing).
HD6XX has better details, a slightly warmer sound and smoother high end, probably better for vocals, the low end also seems a bit more controlled (K7XX can feel slightly hollow at times with that soundstage).
I wouldn't say one can completely replace the other but I am comfortable with just keeping one of them if I have to. I bought two because I just started to get into the headphone thing and would like to know what I am looking for in headphones so I started with the two most popular ones here. Turned out both are really good bang for the buck.
Thanks for your opinion. I was just worried that the 2 headphones wouldn't be that different. I think I'll just wait for now, really enjoying my K7XX for gaming, though it's slightly boring for music (I like bass a lot). Just ordered the O2+SDAC DAC/Amp to pair with it too, can't wait for it to arrive.
Btw how long did it take for the HD6XX to get shipped to you?
Mine took 1 month from order to delivery
Probably depends on their stock status
