Probably the best headphones you can buy at $200
if you are looking for an enjoyable headphone. One that is pleasant and pleasing to listen to after a long day at work, just get a pair of these. I have had mine since the end of 2016. I was able to jump into the original drop of the HD6xx. I have bought several other headphones throughout this time and I always ended up with these. the 6xx lacks quantity in bass, but it does not lack quality. it has enough for genres like Jazz, not enough for other genres though. I am currently powering my 6xx through the Massdrop Liquid Carbon and it just such a beautiful pairing. There is zero fatigue. the liquid carbon adds a bit of umph on the bass too. these are great headphones for vocals. Male & female After almost 3 years of buying and selling headphones, these are still sitting on my desk, because I have not found a better value than these anywhere

A Top-Notch Experience From Beginning To End!
From the painless ordering process to making sure that the product arrived on time professionally packaged, along with an invoice to the actual product itself - the HD 6XX - Wow! I have been listening to music for over 40 years and have never heard my music like this before. Little nuances that were never heard before come out here. Not like hearing it for the first time, but like hearing a different mix of the same song. Very impressive Drop, please give yourselves a big hand for making these beautiful headphones even more available for all to enjoy!

What are "open back headphones"?
Open backs project sound both towards your ears and out the sides of the earpieces. This makes the sound feel as if they are coming from further away. Good for replicating the directions of where each vocals and instruments are coming from; like at a concert. Close backs sound as if the music is coming from the centre of your head; you get less "directional" experience but they feel more intimate. Open backs leak sound so if you are riding on public transport, the people sitting next to you might look at you sideways wonder why you are playing music for everyone around you. Most high end headphones are open back so don't worry about losing any sound quality from the leakage!
What is the best amp (or amp/dac) to pair with the HD6XX?
They go well with my Modi/Magni Schiit stack

Most blatant example I've seen of raising the price just to show there's a "discount" when there's a "sale", lmao

Damn, maybe I need to get my ears checked. I realize these are high impedance, but I can barely get a decent volume out of them with my current setup. Running off my motherboard with Realtek ALC1200, I need to max out the levels and the sound is likely being heavily clipped. I guess I will start looking into budget amps. edit: the stock sound is fine actually. EQ makes them sound better, and that requires more headroom.

Motherboard quality and wattage do not correlate to anything regarding power output to a headphone. That's pretty simple, as stated above. Please read the links I posted if you want answers to questions I have specifically addressed through them. As for the amps you're referring to in driving the Aryas vs. the 6XX, you misunderstand that the Aryas are planars and the 6XX are dynamics. What you're talking about is mostly an OTL Tube amp issue. OTL tube amps are designed to drive high impedance headphones like the 6XX, so their power is inadequate for something that requires a lot of current at lower impedance, and with the output impedance typically being high it can influence the frequency range of lower impedance dynamic headphones. A good solid state amplifier doesn't have this issue. I don't really feel like getting into all of the situations where X doesn't equate to Y because it becomes redundant at some point. Also the USB-C dongle you're going on about can probably drive the 6XX to a high dB, but as stated above (multiple times) it almost certainly doesn't have enough power for adequate dynamic range. It also won't drive an Arya because it's a fucking dongle. There's no way it's going to put out a watt or more at low impedance, which is what something like an Arya will demand. It's not entirely about impedance, it's also about sensitivity. They are not the same thing.
Okay I misunderstood then; I thought we were delving into clean power territory. I should note what I mean about the MB quality is that it would be weird if he was using an old motherboard or a cheap one but he doled out the money for a 750W PSU. You could assume he was using a B550, or in that ballpark. I’m going to try my MB out again and compare to my AMPs, but to be honest, the part where you can get something to the point that it can be too loud but it doesn’t cover the dynamic range is not making sense… To my main point: I can drive the 6XX to a normal if not loud volume with my volume on computer being at ~60 (over that and it’s painful) - how is that not enough power? My MB can even drive the Aryas quite well (though it has 0 overhead there), so there I can maybe understand the argument that you’re not getting the decibels set high enough on certain frequencies. I don’t with the 6xx.

The sound from the headphones is very detailed, and it is almost like spatial audio. It was very comfortable wearing the headphones, likely because of the padding. They also come with a production number(?) and the Massdrop branding in a cursive font. (Mod Edit: Removed URL)

I am new for music n just got the hd6xx, before get the hd6xx I have purchased AMP n DAC, but for the music player, iTunes with laptop is a good choice? My DAC support Bluetooth and I own a iPhone.

Is there a way to use these headphones with a GoXLR? (for an XLR mic & the volume sliders on it)

Yes, the GoXLR is capable of headphones.

Does this batch of 6xx will come in the same packaging as before? The monochrome paper box and inside there's a black box with hinge, like that in the picture...

Yes.

I have been having an issue with heavy bass sounding distorted on the left ear for the past few months. The cable is not the problem. Does anyone know what might be at cause? Can I fix it by myself?

I found out how to disassemble the 6XX/650 on youtube. It turns out it's very easy (thanks Seinnheiser!) and the cause of the distortion was just a hair stuck on the membrane. If I had known that I could fix it in less than five minutes, I would have done it months ago!

Is the Sennheiser 6 ft (1.8 m) cable available through any outlet other than buying a brand new HD 58X or HD 6XX? Sennheiser really should consider selling it on their parts site. They have a 1.4 m cable (Art. No. 570679) and I have one. Unfortunately they don't really fit my HD 660 S with ease. It's almost like the mold for the plugs are off a cm or two and they don't go into the slots. But, I digress. I would love to have a few backup 6ft (1.8 m) cables for my HD 660 S headphones. Alas, I have to rely on unplugging them from my HD 58X just to have that. Sad (and kind of annoying).

You can buy aftermarket cables from numerous suppliers. If you're in the US, I highly recommend HartAudio. The 6XX are one of the most popular headphones in the world, so cables are easily accessible.

How are you finding the 6XX compared to your 660S? I am not sure which I prefer.
Anybody remembered how much these were for during the audio week in April?

I have the 6xx but heard the 58x are very similar. When start experimenting with different audio setups you gain your idea what you like, prefer and don't like. Audio is rabbit hole you can keep going down and down but really don't have to. Get what audio equipment you want and just enjoy it don't worry about differences or what you don't have.

Quick note here. The current batch of 6xx is almost out of stock. We have about 200pcs left. The next batch will be available to ship end of May or later.
