I'm going to try and keep this short since all the good things about these headphones have already been highlighted by various reviewers out there.
I think that they're an amazing pair of headphones that deliver astonishing sound quality, it puts a smile on my face whenever they go on my head. They're very comfortable to wear for long periods of time as well which is definitely not a given even with pricier headphones. I did however EQ the sound because I listen to a lot of bass-heavy music and wanted some extra "oumph" and punch that I was used to having from headphones that were less neutral than the HD 6xx, with the EQ added they are thus far the best headphones I've ever listened to.
In the process of choosing these I also tried the following:
HD 600 - fantastic sound and provided a bit nicer vocals but overall I still preferred the 650.
HD 599 which were somewhat of a disappointment and in my opinion not fair to compare to either 600 or 650/6xx, totally different league.
Beyerdynamics DT 990 Pro 250 ohm - which is what I would have chosen if I didn't go for the 6xx, at its price point they deliver SURPRISINGLY good sound quality and are also very comfortable.
I waited and didn't buy a separate amp because I wanted to see if my on board audio on my computer motherboard would deliver enough power (which seems to be a taboo and no go for like 90% of people out there but bear with me). Asus claims that their SupremeFX sound cards will drive even more demanding headphones, and to my surprise it most certainly did deliver more than enough to drive all of the headphones mentioned above. So if you happen to have a computer with a SupremeFX sound card then hold up and try that before going for external amplification.
Massdrop HD 6xx pros and cons!
It's price! I live in Sweden and here the HD 650 costs almost twice as the HD 6xx.
Can listen for hours without fatigue and they are VERY comfortable (a bit firm until the pads loosen up).
The cable was too short so I had to buy a 3 m long cable (however it was only about 15$).
If you listen to a lot of bass heavy music it might need some EQ to fully satisfy your needs.
Hey what EQ did you use if you don't mind sharing?
