How do these compare to the fidelio x2's? I was going to get the k7xx until I was told it wouldn't really be an upgrade.
Same boat here. Currently have HD558, and want an upgrade for gaming - Was going to get the K7XX but people said the X2's are better, now that these are out, what's better - HD6XX or X2?
I have the X1's and 650 and they are very similar to my ears. The 650 has slightly more detail, slightly brighter. X1 slightly more relaxed. If you don't have the $200 I would pass. If you have the $200 I would get them just so that you have a pair of cans to use as a reference because so many people compare other cans to the 650's. Plus if you go down the rabbit hole of upgrading amps and dacs then you know you have a pair of cans that can scale with better equipment. If I had to get rid of one of the pair, it would probably be the X1's
X1s are better if you don't plan on getting higher end equipment in the chain preceeding the cans. HD6XX will scale much better if you do plan on going that route. Also, if you have a large head like I do, the X1s were uncomfortable after wearing for a long period of time.
