If you're a new audiophile I wouldn't recommend the HD 6XX/650 as your first headphone. It has high impedance so it won't sound good right from your computer or phone. For a first open back headphone I would recommend all rounder headphones such as Hifiman HE4XX/400 or the Sennheiser HD 58X. Other headphones I recommend that are not on Drop are the Verum 1, Monoprice M1060C (open back mod) & PHONON SMB-02.
Even if you get a better headphones, the HD 6XX/650 is still an excellent second set for easygoing nighttime listening. The HD 6XX/650 is particularly good for musical genres that focuses on vocals. Singers sound natural (natural timbre) and feel like they are singing in front while all the instruments are neatly placed further back (forward mids).
