I was about to order the 6XX in a few days until I saw this. So which one is the better headphone if we are not talking about in terms of value for money?
These are brighter and 6XX's are warmer. If you like bass go for the 6XX. If you like treble or don't have a preference, go for these, they are cheaper.
These will probably sound closer to the HD600s and the 660Ss (colder, more controlled bass, more highs) than to the 650s (warmer, looser bass, more subtle highs) . We will know only when it will be available to listen to it.
Also consider that unless you already have a solid amp, the 6xx will need a more powerful amp than these to reach its full potential.
Currently I only have the Schiit Fulla 2. Not sure if it will be enough for the HD 6XX. I may upgrade to a Schiit stack in the future however.
I'm using the HD 6XX and the Fulla 2 and it sounds just fine to me.
