Should I get these or the 58X for mostly gaming, but some music. I don't have an amp and I don't know if I want to spend the money on one.
No it won't really enhance gaming from a competitive standpoint, but if your going to buy them for the comfort on your ear off 4hr + gaming and the in-game ambience/music of immersing yourself.
I just ordered the 6XX this morning after owning Sennheisers HD555, HD558 and HD598SE. All great, super comfortable and long lasting. Kind of hit or miss on whether these are worth while but honestly they look like they could be even more comfortable and specs wise they seem to be a clear winner for the price.
Even the 555's I've had can benefit from an amp but they don't truly NEED it. You could likely use these just fine for awhile without and over time maybe get a cheap amp later. These will benefit the most from an amp comparatively but as I understand you can still enjoy them attached to your androids etc nonetheless.
I'd say if you have the cash for them and won't miss it give them a try. At the very least if you don't like them they will sell pretty easily.
6xx are amazing for the money.
