I am really in doubt if i should get a pair of these or not. Currently running a pair of HD 558s with a SMSL m3 dac. I listen to a wide range of music genres from different sources like spotify / youtube but also still using cds to play music off or rip that to my pc. I really enjoy the 558s and i just dont know if i will be able to hear or notice the difference. I'd rather not change to another dac or amp to run the hd6xxs properly. Since that requires a higher investment than i am willing to do.

There was a very noticeable difference for me going from HD598 to HD650/6XX. The HD650/6XX definitely has a smoother (less fatiguing) and more laid back sound signature than the HD598 to my ears.

Thanks for your answer. I will think about purchasing it or not. Still not 100% sure. Basically because i live in the Netherlands. If they are shipped from Ireland to Netherlands i should be fine tax wise. If they come from America i have to pay fees and import tax. Making them just as expensive as HD 650 in my local shops.

They will always be shipping from the USA because Sennheiser passes on all distribution/shipping responsibilities to Massdrop. Massdrop's warehouse & shipping center is in New Jersey.
