I currently have 598 Cs headphones and I am looking to upgrade to new headphones that offer substantially better sound quality. Would the 6XX accomplish that?
No one can tell you whether the 6XXs are better, because "better" is personal preference. But they are certainly more accurate than the 598s. The 6XX's greatest strength is a balanced sound signature with a tonality leaning towards relaxed. It's the best headphone for accurate rendering of jazz, acoustic and voices, nothing else comes close. I recently compared it side-by-side to a bunch of Hifiman headphones and I would rate it He4XX < Edition X < 6XX <= He1000 v2. In terms of Sennheiser headphones I would rate 6XX > 800S >= 800 > 600 > 700 > 598 > Momentum.
Have you also tested HD58x? If yes, share ranking.
No I haven't, but I have heard it's a very good headphone.
